I have heard from some people that they have had problems with booking on ALSA... some can do it and some have problems... not sure why...

Over at the Travel Center, Frank or Wiktoria can help you book a ticket. You can contact them at

Greetings from Santiago,

Thanks for answer. How can Frank or Viktoria can help me? Is there another way how to buy the ticket or how to go from Santiago to Porto?


Hi there,

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 have found Paypal the easiest way to purchase ALSA tickets from home.
For some reason, they don't want my USA credit card.

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. ...... my jury is out but it's innocent so far!
