Taxi Share 2018 TAXI SHARE Thread Biarritz/Bayonne to SJPP

As there are people looking to share on this route I have started a thread for 2018.

It is suggested you contact each other by the Conversation function to make arrangements. To the left of the a post there is the persons name and avatar click either and press the "Start a Conversation" button that appears.

May I also suggest that when you have found someone to share or have made the journey that you delete your post so that only current share offers and requests are on the thread.

All individual threads related to taxis from Bayonne or Biarritz to SJPP will be merged into this one so please do not cause the moderators extra work by starting your own thread.

If you are going to give a date which you want to share on please write it as 2nd July 2018 as 2/7/18 or 7/2/18 can be misunderstood by people on different sides of the Atlantic.

Useful information carried over from the previous Biarritz to SJPP Taxi thread.

Make sure you contact Caroline at Express Burricot <apcaroline@hotmail.com>. Chances are you'll end up riding with her anyway!

My advice to you all is - Don't panic. Caroline at Burricott Express is very good at infilling the minibuses. So whenever you are going either book (if you can) or email to ask if you can share an already booked taxi. I think you can be confident of infill taking place most of the times. If you have booked and are worried about ending up paying most of the cost, then I have only one thing to say - relax, let the Camino provide, let this be an early opportunity for you to let go and go with the flow.

If you're looking for people to share with also check the Beilari website http://www.beilari.info/en

"I never used them but also got a good fare from Bertrand at Bertrand - BIP TAXI <info@bip-taxi-hendaye.com>"

"My husband and I arrived in Biarritz two years ago and simply asked people carrying backpacks and waiting outside the airport if they wanted to share a taxi to SJPP (very easy to differentiate pilgrims from holiday in Biarritz folks). Within 5 minutes we had a group of 5 people together and on our way. I think it cost us about €25 per person and we were there within an hour. Oh, and we met a guy whom we ended up walking with and who has become a great friend. Just roll with the experience, I say!"

Just make sure they (EB) know beforehand.
I turned up at Bayonne with a couple of 'friends' I met on the train and was told that they were lucky to get seats as EB will try to fill the seats themselves effectively doing the ride sharing bit for you..... ;);)

Thanks Kirkie,
Will have a look at blablacar. If all else fails it will be the bus and train. At least flight is in early enough to give plenty of time to get to SJPdP.

When you get to the main airport entrance, look for other pilgrims -- backpacks, shells, patches -- and ask if anyone would like to share your taxi. There's an excellent chance that you'll have several folks who would be eager to accept.

Between the waiting area to board your flight to Biarritz and when you are at the main entrance at Biarritz airport, look for other pilgrims heading to SJPdP (backpacks, shells, patches on clothing or packs, etc.). Ask if anyone would like to share your taxi, or if anyone has a ride they'd like to share. You may even meet your new best Camino friend in doing so. :)

I don't think it us possible to get accommodation in SJDPDP THAT late at night you would have to travel the next day. The shuttle bus seems the best option
It is possible IF arrangements are made ahead of time via a reservation with notice of a late arrival. Most often the accommodation would be at something other than an alburgue; but most of the private hostals, rurals, and hotels in SJPdP will take a late check-in if notified accordingly. :)

Hello,

I am planning well in advance.
Flying from CDG to Biarritz France on EZ Jet Flight 3701 arriving on the the 25th September at 12:15. I have reserved Express Bouriccoute which will pick me up at the Biarritz airport at 1pm. The van can hold 8 people. The more the cheaper. If you are traveling that day and route I encourage you to contact Express Baricout and make a res today. https://www.expressbourricot.com/persons-transport/

Express Bouricott is less expensive per rider than a taxi and they fill the shuttle with others arriving at around your departure schedule.

https://www.expressbourricot.com/contact-and-booking/

You can also just walk to the main entrance of the airport and there will be other pilgrims that would be glad to share a taxi, or may have a ride that you can share.

Train reservation not necessary. You can get ticket for train in Bayonne station rarely full , easy bus ride with many fellow pilgrims to Bayonne la Gare for 2 euro.

Catch bus directly outside airport entrance.

Buen Camino
I thought the reservation is not necessary from Bayonne to SJPP. But the website www.oui.sncf today doesn't give me trains anymore, then I panicked in case every train is full. :O

I took express bourricort yesterday. When I booked I was the only pilgrim. Yesterday they had 2 shuttles full of pilgrims at 5pm. I took Mikel a pilgrim waiting at the bus/taxi area over to the shuttle. $19 Euros. Lots of Traffic because of the Easter holiday. The only way to go.

I am beginning my second Camino on the 21st of June. I will be traveling from Dublin to Biarritz on the Ryanair flight arriving mid-day. I have booked a minibus/taxi to go direct from the airport to St Jean Pied de Port as I intend to commence walking that afternoon. Is anyone interested in sharing the minibus/taxi? The company I have booked is Express Bourricot. The more people on the bus the lower the price.

This is my second Camino. I cycled last year but I am walking for my second one.

Hi! I'll be arriving into Biarritz Airport either the 3rd or the 4th of June around 17:00, it's an awkward time to get to St Jean Pied de Port with public transportation. Would a few people like to hire a shuttle together to reduce the cost?

Hi all,
I'm arriving in Biarritz at around 1700 on 30th September and wondered if anyone had similar travel plans. I wanted to use Express Bouricott to travel to St Jean, but mine is the only request they have received for that day which makes it an expensive option.
I have used them on 2 previous Caminos and they are very reliable (and inexpensive if several people share the transport)
Please get in touch, either by this post if this would fit in to your plans.
Failing that, any advice or suggestions gratefully received.
Buen Camino :D

I have arrived in SJPP on that last train and then gone straight to the Pilgrim Office which stays open to issue credencials to people coming in on that last train. They also got me a bed so no problem. If you want to book ahead, then ask them if arrival on the last train would be OK.

Hi, I got in just before 5pm tonight and wanted to take the train but felt it was a bit close time wise so decided for staying in biarritz and I didn't want to spend 84 euros on a taxi - my original quote. So I decided in staying in biarritz and bus or train in the morning. There was people on my flight who taxi shared with express bourricot - there was quite a lot few people getting together, so I could have joined them - had I only stuck with it. As for tomorrow morning I was going to take the bus in the morning but express bourricot got back to me with a sharing option for 10am - initially 84 euros but now 28 - I feel they are trying very hard to gather car loads :) and they got back in touch even though I didn't accept the 84 euro booking :). So I'm in biarritz at present - had a lovely wander in the rain with wild seas and old beautiful buildings and now enjoying pizza and sangria - not complaining :). Let express bourricot know when you intend to travel and see what they come up with or enjoy Biarritz but don't the stress :) they are all good and fun options!

Hi I'm arriving from Gatwick to Biarritz at 5pm with Ryan air. The only train available would get me to St. Jean at 22.35 so too late for accommodation. Been quoted 120 euro total for up to 8 passengers. Is anyone arriving around the same time and wants to share? I think the alternative is to spend a night in Biarritz and leave in the morning?.
If it’s not possible to go with express Bourricot then I’d recommend you get accommodation in either Biarritz and follow up fresh in the AM., or book accommodation at Bayonne ., which is where you will be catching the train up to SJPdP.
I’ve stayed at the small hotel there just a minute or two across from the railway station.

You’ll really do it this time.
Enjoy your journey.

What?!? I will be in Biarritz for the same time on a Sunday and I just check that the last train is around 4pm! After that no trains. The worst thing is that I have already booked my hostel in Saint Jean Pied-de-port for the same night because I didn't even think about checking the trains...

Hi Frank! I'll be in Saint Biarritz on Sunday 20th May. As soon as I read the post I booked a seat with Express Bourricot. Try to email them, they probably have seats left. Even if you share with just 3 other people price is ok, around 20 Euros.

Another option is to spend the night in Bayonne snd then take the train to SJPP the next day (12:00 noon to 1:00pm for about 10 euros). It helps to overcome some of the jet lag so that you can start hiking fresh the nect day.

I like many others have used Express Bouricott, first class service. When I pre booked the ones scheduled around my flight arrival was already full. So they arranged for another to arrive 45 minutes later. As stated they keep taking the bookings to bring the price down. Very reliable.

If Express Bouricott is full (get your reservation now, they don't do walk ups), then when you fly in to BIQ go to the main entry at the Biarritz airport, look around for fellow pilgrims (backpacks, patches, shells, excited expressions, etc) and ask if anyone would like to share a taxi to SJPdP, or if they have space to share a ride with you.

Just an FYI... if transfer is by Express Bouricott, it is by reservation only. They don't do walk-ups. EB fills seats on a first come, first served. They do fill their shuttles.

If not EB...Then never mind. :)

Hi

We are group of 3 people arriving to Biarritz airport 5th May 2018 at 17:45, last train leaves 18:12 to SJPDP, so as its unlikely that we will make it. We are planning on taking taxi from the airport to SJPDP. My question is, is there taxis at the airport that we can just take or should we make some reservation in advance? And any ideas of the cost? SJPDP being bit over fifty kilometers away, I was thinking that the cost would be around 50-75€?

Thanks !

I contacted expressbourricot and inquired if there where others going at that evening and the pricing. Unfortunatly we really can't stay the night at Bayonne as we have all ready booked our accomodation in SJPDP and Roncesvalles. But from what i have heard, it might have been worth spending a day there :)

And if someone still has any information about the Taxis we are open to options.

Express Bouricott is reservation only, and fills their seats on a first come first served basis. The seats will be filled on virtually all the shuttles. If you want to make a reservation, better do it ASAP before they no longer have seats available.

Highly recommended by most! I have used them twice. No problems. Book in advance. Cost is fixed and divided by no. of passengers. Can be as low as €12 pp They try hard to fill the minibus.
Used this service on 01 April. Due to our flight arrival time we had to wait for pick up but wasn’t a big deal - highly recommend

Two of us have already reserved an Express Bourricout shuttle for:

If you would like to share our same shuttle, your cost would be no more than 28 euros or as low as 19 euros if we are able to completely fill the shuttle. You pay cash after the drive.
To reserve your seat, send an email to contact@expressbourricot.com with the following information:

Flight Arrival Time:

The shuttle service monitors your flight arrival time, so they know exactly when you land. You must book in advance via e-mail at contact@expressbourricot.com. When you reserve they will send you a PDF that clearly explains the service, or you may view the PDF at this link:

Booking transport with Express Bouricott to SJPP 22 May today, we arrive at 16.55 any fellow pilgrims want to share ? the more passengers the cheaper it becomes.
No worries, your shuttle will likely be full. EB automatically fills the seats as reservations come in. The biggest problem can be if one delays the booking of a reservation till a week or so before needing the transport, and then finding that there are no more seats available. :)

Hello all

We arrive in Biarritz on 24 September 18 at 1000A for our second Camino. I have reserved a van for eight with Express Bourricot for transportation to SJPP. So far there are only two passengers. The more the merrier and also less expensive. Email Express Bourricot at contact@expressbourricot.com to make a reservation. If you arrive later in the morning, I have no problem waiting.

Buen Camino

Hi Frank! I'll be in Saint Biarritz on Sunday 20th May. As soon as I read the post I booked a seat with Express Bourricot. Try to email them, they probably have seats left. Even if you share with just 3 other people price is ok, around 20 Euros.
I get into Biarritz a day after you on the evening of the 21st. I already booked a hostel in Bairritz. Let me know how it is getting to st. Jean. I have had trouble trying to book a trial for the following morning on the website.

Hi Eamonn, My friend and I arrive around the same time from Dublin and we would be interested in sharing the cost of transport to St Jean. What cost are we looking at? Thanks, Andrew
Hi Andrew, thanks for your message. I am also on Dublin flight. It is 120 euro for the transfer, There is currently 3 of us possibly four, so if you and your friend also came it would be either 24 euro each for you or 20. Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi all

Me and my brother are arriving into Biarritz at 21:30 pm from London Gatwick on 7th September 2018. We would much rather get to SJPP on this day rather then spend the night in Bayonne. Also the first train on Saturday is 07:40am so we may be quite late leaving SJPP to start the walk on Saturday because we need to get our stick and stamp etc. if anyone is arriving at this date and time we would be happy to split the taxi cost with you to SJPP.

thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Harrison

Welcome to the Forum, Harrison :).

Another option is Express Bouricott. They run a mini bus / van shuttle where they take reservations on a first come - first served basis. The cost is split by the number of passengers (a full shuttle means 19 euro per person). EB does all of the seat filling for you :). They run a terrific service.

Cause we still have about 3 months we have not booked anywhere to stay in SJPP yet , we might wait and see if we can get there that late . Worst case scenario we stay the night in Bayonne and get the train Saturday morning . do you think it’s ok to start the walk at about 11:00 am ?

Hi,

I have a very last minute plan to try to walk some of the Camino Frances starting from SJPP.

Planning to arrive in Bayonne around 5pm Sunday 20th May 2017.

Wondering whether anyone else is starting at a similar time and would like to share taxi from Bayonne to SJPP and/or to start the walk together from SJPP on Monday 21st May - last minute jitters and I think some companionship to start might be helpful!!

Only looking at taxi option as it seems there are no trains between Bayonne and SJPP currently - please can anyone confirm?

Many thanks.

I'm arriving MAY 20 but ~10pm, so I will spend the night at a hotel near the airport.

I'm taking a shuttle to St. Jean for 21 euros on MAY 21
LINK: https://www.expressbourricot.com/

I plan on starting my walk on MAY 22...

Cheers,
Hi,

Many thanks for the helpful replies. I am coming via Paris on the train and should arrive at Bayonne at 16:47. My preference would be to leave Bayonne that same day if I can manage to get transport to SJPP. If not then I will try to find a hotel in Bayonne just for the night to catch the first train the following morning. Thank you for the link to the shuttle, I wasn't aware of that - zero planning, all rather last minute!

Are you able to suggest a simple, local hotel in the area, ideally near to the train station - just in case I can't arrange transport for the 20th.

Buon camino!

TimetoWalk, I'm on the 17h30 Express Bourricot shuttle from Biarritz airport on the 20th, so I know there is one. Good luck!

JJinWI, I'm planning on starting my walk on the 22nd too.

Hope to see you both on the trail. If you see my backpack with a California patch, say hello!

See you then... (I used to live in Marina del Rey... long ago...)

FYI... my pack will have an "Unbound" logo on the back. It's a charity I'm trying to raise money... getting friends, family, former students... to donate per mile.

Have a safe flight over...

Me??, I'm taking a crazy route. Chicago... Iceland... London... Biarritz. Crazy, but I paid $300 for the flight!!!!

Hi!
I just send email to make a reservation for that same day! Let's see how that goes..
My flight should arrive to Biarritz at 15:35.
Two more nights! I'm getting terrified!

..okay so EB was full for that day! My plan was great but didn't work. :)

Insterested in sharing a taxi (Express Bourricot) on June 2 from Biarritz airport direct to St Jean Pied de Port? Flight lands at 12:15 but flexible with time. There are 2 of us. It looks like there is a train strike that day.
