I have been trying to book an alsa bus on their site with a foreign credit card. Has anybody got to to work?? Their are a few old 2012 trip advisor posts saying it doesn't work. It accepts the data and then just spins and spins with no message saying that the payment has been accepted??

You can also try the GoEuro website or app. We've had no issues booking Renfe tickets through GoEuro with our credit card, and I believe they link to bus companies as well.

Less than a week ago I used my US credit card to purchase tickets. Several weeks ago got train tickets as well.

I don't see where you are from Simeon, but if it's the U.S., one card that is widely refused is American Express.

thanks for your replies. It was an Irish card I was using. Will try again this eve
might have been a glitch in their site

Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route. 2018 was Camino #14
I use Paypal for Alsa

I had no troubles by paying with my danish VISA. I bought it a couple of weeks ago and it worked perfectly fine... I don't know where the problem lies :/
