Biarritz to Hendaye to Donostia


I know that similar questions have been posted here before, so sorry to repeat.

We will be arriving from Paris into Biarritz in April at 17.50. It looks like it's not too far from the airport to the train station. Any ideas of taxi cost? I have been able to find the train timetable for Biarritz to Hendaye, but like everyone else on this forum the timetable from Hendaye to Donostia is not so easy to understand. Does anyone know how late the trains run from Hendaye to Donostia as we don't really want to get stuck there for the night. Also how long should it take us once we get off the train in Hendaye to get to the station for the Euskotren.

Many thanks

Whilst your questions are similar, they are actually unique so it is a pleasure to answer them.

I have a spreadsheet of taxi costs in the Biarritz area from speaking to my clients. From Biarritz airport to Gare La Négresse will probably cost €12 for up to 4 people (assuming you don't have large luggage). Alternatively Line C from http://www.chronoplus.eu should still be running at that time and will cost €1 per person.

The Euskotren website is only showing winter timetables at the moment and it doesn't say when it expires. Last train is currently at 22:33 but on the Spring/Summer timetable there will be more and later trains. A pdf of the times can be seen here: euskotren.es/sites/…29.pdf

From leaving the train at Hendaye to the Euskotren station should be no more than 5 minutes.

Some additional information for you: when the train arrives in San Sebastian it will be at Amara station which is here: http://goo.gl/maps/ZGuGV

The Euskotren trains run every 30 minutes. Take a look at the item across to the right under ´Top Questions´' where there is more detail about that part of the trip.

It will essential to have some Euro coins for the ticket machine, as the human ticket office at the Euskotren station is not always staffed.

The Euskotren station is just across the parking lot from the train station in Hendaye. Just look to your right as you exit the station.
