Best way from Madrid to Alicante or Murcia


I will be travelling to Spain from Australia June 2010. Our flight lands in Madrid and we than need to get from there to Alicante or Murcia. Is it best to hire a car or go by plane or train or bus? We really don't want to drive right away as we will probably be jet lagged.

Thanks for help you can offer

The train from Madrid to Alicante takes about 3.5 hrs - www.renfe.es - there's an English page where you can see the timetables. Otherwise it would be about 4/5 hrs drive or an hour by plane.

Ryanair fly 3 times a day from Madrid to Alicante, we have used this several times. We are flying from Madrid to Alicante next month and have paid 15 euros each, this includes taxes, bags and check-in fee. We also paid a similar price in June, this year. Only drawback is the 15kg hold baggage.

The prices vary depending on their offers.
