Hi, just last Wednesday I booked a bus ticket on Alsa from Madrid to Astorga. Their site seemed very slow through the day, but I had no problem with the booking or using my credit card later in the evening.
However, trying to print off their reply confirmation was puzzling---- after 4 tries, it still came out almost too faint to read. (I used a New ink cartridge and printed several other things beautifully.)
I'm finally packed! I leave home on Monday evening and arrive in Madrid Tues.morning.
Good luck on your journey. :arrow:
