Will be starting my second Camino from Burgos at the end of August. I arrive not Madrid airport about 1:30pm on a Friday afternoon. Should I pre book my train ticket Burgos where I have a nights accommodation booked?

First one in 1977 by train. Many since then by foot. Next one ASAP.
Forget the train. There are several afternoon ALSA bus departures direct from Madrid-Barajas Airport to Burgos. Clean, comfortable, cheaper I'm sure, and probably just as fast as the train.

You can prebook the bus on either ALSA or Movelia.....

There is a free shuttle that runs between the terminals. Buy your bus ticket at the kiosk/desk inside the terminal, by the exit to the bus stops.

Easy peasy.

Last Sept., I took the free shuttle from T1 to T4, stood in line, and bought a bus ticket to Burgos from the desk kiosk. You board the bus outside the exit door. It was quite comfy and went directly to the Burgos bus station. I had a pleasant 2 night stay at the Burgos Hostal , which is over the bus station. So easy! This was my 3rd Camino & I wish I'd traveled like this prior. I recommend it.


For this breath, I am present.

I also recommend the bus from T1. There is a kiosk where you can purchase your tickets and then you wait outside. It’s very easy and the bus was comfortable and quick.
