Reaching Benidorm From Alicante, Spain
Alicante is one of the most desired destinations to visit in Spain. Traveling to Alicante during the summer months will prove to be the busiest time of the year to travel. As such, you will want to begin making your vacation plans. An early reservation will allow you to get the better rates on airfare and car hire.
Most travelers fly into the Alicante International Airport, one of Spain’s larger airports offering many discount flights into the region. A large selection of large and small carriers fly into this airport from around the world and serve travelers to not only Alicante but also the popular destinations of Benidorm, Denia and even Murcia. Again, you should book early to find the best rate and ensure availability especially during the summer months.
To find the best prices on flights to Alicante, you will have to do some research and the best place to start is online travel sites. Online sites allow you to compare fares from different carriers, but keep in mind that all discount airlines may not be listed on the travel websites. Though it may take extra time, contacting the company or airlines directly for information regarding flights and fares may save you quite a bit of money in the end.
As mentioned earlier, the summer season is the busiest travel time to the Costa Blanca. The longer you wait, the less money you will likely save as flights are booked quickly. The fewer seats remaining on the flight, the higher fare you will pay.
Another factor in the price of the fare is when you will travel. Traveling during the week is generally cheaper than weekend fares, specifically flights on Tuesday through Thursdays which are usually better fares. Be sure to book your return flight for midweek also.
Upon arriving in Alicante, you will need transportation to your final destination whether in Alicante itself or a surrounding city. There is a good public transportation available consisting of buses and trains which can provide travel to and from various towns. Public transportation may be sufficient if you plan to spend most of your time within the city limits or very nearby to Alicante’s neighboring areas. However, a car hire may be the better transportation choice if you plan to visit many areas on the Costa Blanca. Several care hire companies are available at the airport and in the city. You can either pick up your care at the airport or make arrangements with the car hire company for transportation to and from the airport.
