** By plane:
-From Madrid there are two daily flights to San Sebastian.
-From Barcelona there is one daily. The airport is situated in Hondarribia/Fuenterrabia. From the airport you can take a bus or taxi to reach Donostia. Airport phone number: 943.668.500.

** By train:
-From Madrid RENFE (Spanish train company) goes to San Sebastian, or even to Irun/French border.
-There are also trains from Barcelona. I would recommend you, if you take a train from Madrid or Barcelona, to take a night one (about 6 hours from Madrid, and 7 from Barcelona).
-From Paris you can take TGV (Great Speed Train, belongs to SNCF, French train company) up to Hendaia/Hendaye and combine it, in its last 20 km, with Eusko Trenbideak company's train that link Hendaia with Donostia (both train stations are one in front of the other in Hendaye).
-From Bilbao or Pamplona is much recommended to take a bus to reach San Sebastian.

** By bus:
-Well linked to Spanish major cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Pamplona, Valencia, Alicante, Salamanca, etc. Take 'Continental' Company to go from Madrid, 'La Roncalesa' from Pamplona, 'Pesa' from Bilbao.
-It is also linked with London (Euro Lines company, 22 hours including the time for the Dover-Calais ferry), an inexpensive way to go to San Sebastian.

** By car:
-From Madrid take A-1 motorway, via Burgos and Vitoria-Gasteiz; alternatives to this road: take toll road (AP-1) between Burgos and Miranda de Ebro, and take another toll road from Vitoria upto to Durango (direction Bilbo/Bilbao). About 5 hours.
-From Barcelona take A-2 upto Zaragoza, then go to Pamplona. Even it is a good road, the alternative is to take toll road. About 6 hours.
-From Bilbao take A-8 toll road to reach San Sebastian in one hour, or take the national road (2 or 3 hours, depending on the traffic). If you are not in a hurry I can suggest you to take the national road to visit different towns and villages in the Basque coast (Orio, Zarautz, Zumaia, Getaria, Mutriku, Ondarroa, Lekeitio, Gernika, etc).
-From Pamplona take A-15 and A-1 to reach San Sebastian. It is just 45 minutes-1 hour.
-From Paris take A-10 toll road till the border (via Orleans, Tours, Poitiers, Bordeaux) and A-8 toll road from the border to San Sebastian. Not paying alternatives are N-10 in France and N-I once crossing the border.
Excellent information about Spanish roads is in the web by DGT (Direccion General de Trfico, Spanish Traffic Deparment) at www.dgt.es
