how can I buy a ALSA ticket from abroad? I would like to go from Santiago to Oporto by bus in July. I tried to buy ticket (http://www.alsa.es), but i could not finish the payment. There is any possibility how to buy it from abroad?
Peaceable Projects Inc. is a U.S.-based non-profit group that brings the vast resources of the wide world together with the ongoing needs of the people who live, work, and travel on the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail network in Spain.
My advice is to just sort out a bus or train ticket when you arrive in Santiago. That gives you more flexibility when you leave and not a deadline for arriving. Two of my travelling companions sorted out a bus ticket to Lisbon without too much trouble. June/July will of course be busier but I would have thought that the public transport should be functioning ok even then.... but I might be wrong. Good luck!
Additionally, I would like to say thanks to Ivar for a help. Finally, I bought ALSA ticket from abroad. The problem with buying tickets was easily resolved. Generaly, you can not buy ticket month or earlier before!!
I was just going to comment on ALSA when I saw this. I am a VERY frequent traveller with ALSA. I live in Spain, do not drive and there is no sensible RENFE route. Their services are usually excellent. Their old website is a nightmare.
BUT today they launched an updated site and SO FAR it does look a big improvement with international routes (seemingly!) fully integrated.
