Pensionistas+ALSA+reduced fares

If you are over 60 and want up to 40% reduced bus fares in Spain go to and find the 'Offers' section on their home page. You can sign up online for your free "BusPlus" card.

I've just found this today so I don't yet know if the card comes by post or as an online printoff.

Ah well - like Ryanair it's too good to be true. The response is initially by email, but there is no mention of a reduction in fares under 100 euros. Between 101 -200 you get a measly 5% off.

There is no mention of the "up to 40% " reduction anywhere.

It was interesting to contemplate, however. "Truth in advertising" is more of an oxymoron than ever, these days.
