Barcelona to Geneva in €50 – Cheap & Best without Flight

You will find cheap flights easily in 50 Euros from Barcelona to Geneva through various booking websites. However, there are various time and costs added with these airfares which seem cheap at beginning but cost higher later. Some of the thing to consider are:-

  1. Baggage charges 25 – 35 Euros per baggage.
  2. Travel cost from city center to airport approx 10 Euros each way.
  3. Timings of these low cost airlines are either early morning or late night and that adds to discomfort and extra costs of Taxi from Airport to/ from city center.
  4. Long check-in  time generally associated with Flights.
  5. Admin charges of booking websites.

But, there is a way to travel from Barcelona to Geneva in the same price as that of low cost airlines i.e. €50 without the above mentioned hassles. Here, are my travel notes for making this connection in just 10 hours 30 minutes (with no night travel) from city center to city center.
