Bus Service info sought from Oveida to Madrid

What buses go from Oveida (or Gijon) to Madrid on Sunday, June 5, leaving Asturias between 11:30 am and 1:30 p.m.?

We prefer the latest departure which will get us to Madrid by 6:45 so we can take a taxi to Madrid Barajas airport in time

to check in by 7:15 or 7:30 at the latest for our 9:15 flight from Madrid. What price are tickets per person for two seniors?

Is it cheaper if we buy online? Also, does the bus have room for two large suitcases plus two pieces of carry-on luggage?

As soon as we can get answers to these questions we will be happy to book a reservation.

Thank you,

ALSA is the carrier from Gijón & Oviedo to Madrid. Their coaches are comfy.

ALSA buses (they are coaches, not buses really) have a large luggage space below, so no problem with 2 large suitcases. You will have to tell the driver where you are going, as they put luggage in different places in the bottom according to where you are getting off.

Depending on the size of your hand luggage, they may let you take it on board, or may ask you to put it underneath as well. Be prepared and take your valuables and anything else you may need during the journey in a small bag to take on the bus in case.

You can book the tickets on the ALSA website, but whether you'll get a discount now I don't know, it may be too soon before the departure date. If you prefer to buy from the bus station, do so at least a few days before the date to ensure you get seats.

Also careful, the name is OviedO, not OviedA, you'll have trouble finding the timetables otherwise!
