Travel to / from Valencia By Bus
The Bus Station
Valencia is very well linked to Europe and the rest of Spain by bus. However, getting information can be tricky. The bus services in Spain are not centralised like the national train network, and the market is divided between various bus companies who do not communicate with each other too well. Most of those companies also have braindead web designers who make pretty but totally unusable company sites.
If you are going from Valencia you are advised to just go to the bus station, since it is not too far, or call the phone numbers. Make sure you avoid the lunchtime between 14.00 and 17.00. ALSA, however, does have a good website with reservations and this company will serve most of Spanish destinations.
If you are travelling to Valencia (and not with ALSA) you should go to the local bus station or call the phone numbers. For the international trips, view our list of serving companies below and find their branch in your country.
As a matter of fact, ALSA can answer just about every need of yours, both national and international, they have a million destinations. We don't promote anyone, but they are the only ones who saved the searchers from torture by making a good online browsing experience and generally providing quality customer service. Until everyone else gets themselves in gear, we are happy to send everyone to the ALSA website. By shopping around you may save a few euros but you will then have to spend them on aspirin to get rid of the headache.
National Travel by Bus
For the companies serving Spanish destinations, the web presence is not too bad and you can find info in under 1000 clicks.
The City Council of Valencia also has a webpage with a list of destinations and the links to the bus companies which operate them, where you can check timetables and prices.
International Travel by Bus
Valencia also has plenty of bus links with Europe - Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, UK, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Czech Republic. Particularly well linked is France, with many destinations covered. Eastern Europe is also very available - Poland, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania. You could also easily catch a bus to Morocco.
However, this is where the websites get very bad and you need to follow the advice above.
