Getting Around Benidorm on a Budget

Stretch your Benidorm holiday money a little further with these tips

Getting around Benidorm on a budget

On average, the cost of living in Benidorm is 88% lower than it is in London. Admittedly, the English capital does happen to be the most expensive UK city in which to live. Hopefully, though, this comparison gives you an idea of what you can expect from prices in Benidorm.

Before you make your trip, be sure to avail yourself of Holiday Extras' Benidorm airport transfers, our low-cost, fuss-free hotel-to-accommodation shuttle service.

On foot

The cheapest way to make your way around this resort city is by walking. Even if you have limited mobility, Benidorm's beaches are very accessible and its promenades are wide. The Blue Flag beaches of Poniente and Levante, for instance, are each within easy walking distance of the city centre. The expansive Parque Natural de la Serra Gelada is adjacent to the latter, while another green oasis, Parque de l'Aigüera, is just a short stroll away from the heart of the city.

On two wheels

An excellent way to see as much of Benidorm in particular and Alicante in general is on a bike. There are plenty of cycle hire outlets around the city, and daily rental prices represent good value for money, especially since you're provided with freedom to explore on your own terms.

On four or more wheels

Benidorm has an extensive bus network that will enable you to get around the city inexpensively. And if you fancy exploring other parts of the Costa Blanca, a season ticket is well worth considering. The options typically range between a 24-hour ticket and 30 days' unlimited travel.

Eating out

No matter how you choose to get around the city, you won't have to break the bank to enjoy yourself, especially since many restaurants offer set menus that are extremely affordable. Look out, too, for all-you-can-eat buffets, which can be enjoyed in many of Benidorm's Chinese restaurants, for instance.

A little light shopping

Benidorm hosts a number of markets throughout the week. You never know what bargains you might find and you can always try to haggle for an even better price.

Fancy a fiesta?

Spain loves putting on a show – and the good news is that many of the best are free. Festivals are very common in this part of the world, so there's every chance you'll get to experience one during your vacation. It'll be worth it if you do – there's nothing quite like the sights and sounds of an Iberian celebration.

Don't forget, our airport transfers, provide an inexpensive way to begin your next great holiday.
