I just got an email from Alsa (we are email friends now that I have bought several tickets online) and they announced a big sale of tickets. I wasn’t planning to buy myy ticket to the start of the Geira till I was sure that I was going to be able to walk it, but Santiago - Braga bus tickets are now 9€ as opposed to the normal 32 or so. So I went for it.

It’s called “Venta Flash” and you will get the sale prices on the regular website when you select the route, date and time.

BTW, I have successfully changed a bus reservation to a day earlier because of a change in flights. It was easy and painless. The Alsa website is really pretty great.

Thank you very much for this information! I went with it. Now it says I can't set up a password on the info because of "incorrect cell number." I guess I didn't put a prefix country code into it?

Laurie thanks for this information. Are you using the website only? Any thoughts on the app? Downloaded app to my cell and haven’t used it.

I got on the website but didn't see anything about a sale. :(
Annie, when you plug in the dates and itinerary you want, the sale price will come up. At least that’s what happened to me.

I’ve attached a screen shot. Good luck — I don’t know if all routes are covered but if it’s on sale you should see it at the point of selecting your bus.

Camino Frances (2015, 2017, 2019) and plans for 2021 (Sept, Oct)
I went to their website and punched in Pamplona to St Jean on Sept 16. It was showing the non-reduced price = 22 euros. More of a concern is that they are only showing the afternoon trip, leaving Pamplona at 14:30 and arriving in St Jean at 16:15. Our last two caminos, we caught a 10:00 am bus and arrived in St Jean at 11:30. Maybe the pilgrim volume does not yet justify a morning departure. I'll keep trying and if one is not available, we'll hire a taxi to take us to St Jean. Bob

I did as well, if you haven't already it's good to join Alsa Plus if like me you are over 60. I have the app and find it easy to use. The website speaks english to me the app not so much!

Thanks for this info!! I just jumped on the site--was already researching return travel options to get me back to Paris--and booked a 9 euro (plus "fees", 12.10 total) seat for Oct 30. Yes, it takes a few minutes to navigate through, and yes, at one point I did have to stop, reload the page, and start over again. But glad I'm now booked to bus to Madrid, and fly to Paris*, in time to catch my flight back to the U.S. Nov 1. *Easy Jet -- VERY reasonable.
