Eurolines Barcelona from France – Review
We were aboard Eurolines Coach service from Montpellier, France to Barcelona, Spain on September 19th, 2014. This six hour journey on the lovely scenic highway was a lovely experience for both of us. We really appreciate the hassle free services provides by Eurolines, France from online booking of tickets to the time we got dropped at Barcelona Sants station. This journey was a proof of concept for cheapest way to travel from Paris to Barcelona, an original idea of Travel Jots.
Booking the Coach Tickets
We booked our coach tickets conveniently through the website of Eurolines France. I must say, it was a cake-walk and within a few clicks, our tickets were emailed to us. The website has been offered in six different languages for the ease of the customers. Almost five to six bus services are run by Eurolines on this leg in a day. We choosed the 12:30 bus and paid a modest 22 Euros for 340 Km long journey.
