Then it is a 5 hr. train ride to Castellon or Benicassim (that is on normal trains — the “super” high speed train does it in 3 hrs.).

One-way train fare from Barcelona on regular trains runs about $25 or so — and from Madrid this would jump to about $40 again on regular trains. Costs on the high-speed luxury trains will likely be about 50% higher.

How To Get To Benicassim by air rail or road trip

As some of you are regular festival go-ers, you will find it no problem to make it across Europe to a massive music event.

However, to us newbies i think i can personally say it is pretty intimidating but definitly exciting. We have all been to the usual festivals back in our home land… but Europe, that’s a different story.

Now, to the main point, how to get there. I have researched and researched and spoken to friends who went previous years. It seems the best way to get there is to fly to Valencia and get a train that goes straight to Benicassim which takes about an hour, perfect timing to get a few drinks down you i’d say. Other possible routes are flying to Reus (1hr 40mins away), Barcelona (2hrs 30mins away), Alicante (2hrs 50mins away) or Madrid (4hrs 40mins away).

If you are like my friends, they have decided to either create the event into some massive road trip across Europe or to go by train. We have found an InterRail Global Pass which allows us to travel where ever we want for either 22 days (€309) or 1 month (€399), these prices are based on the Youth Pass from the ages of 12- 26. There are other passes aswel, for a one country pass to Spain for 8 days it’s €149, also based on the Youth Pass of ages 12-26.

So there we go, when i find out anymore i’ll let ya’ll know!

How to get to the festival of dreams aka benicassim travel top tips

Hello Beni Fans!

If like myself, you are wistfully counting down the months to the greatest festival of all time and you have bought your ticket and are now wondering how to get there then please read on! Look out for the ‘Beni Bites’ for tips and hints!

The preferred method of travel is by plane. Although you can’t fly directly to Benicassim, the 3 most preffered destinations are Alicante, Valencia and Barcelona. Valencia is the closest. You can also fly to Madrid. Last year, me and some mates flew to Barcelona from Gatwick and stayed there for a few days as a pre-Beni warm up then got a train to Benicassim.

Beni Bite – book your flight as soon as you can. We just booked ours from Gatwick to Valencia and with all taxes etc it was just over £100. I know some mates who booked theirs from Bristol to Alicante for around the same price.

You can get a train to Beni from Valencia, Barcelona or Madrid quite easily or hire a car when you get there. If you haven’t been to Beni before then there is parking around the town and I have seen many people having a cheeky sleep with the air con on when it gets a bit warm!

Beni Bite – book your train ticket from one of the Spanish train sites in advance otherwise I can guarantee you won’t get a seat on the train. The train sites have tickets about 3 months in advance so when they come up, I shall update you all!

Beni Bite – we are having a few days holiday either side of Beni to prepare and recover. If you are planning on the whole Beni experience (camping from the Monday) then I would strongly suggest staying in a local Beni hotel on the Sunday night so you are ready to get to the campsite early. We got to the campsite about 11am and were all set up by 1pm. When we trotted down to the beach, people were in a 2 hour queue waiting to be pitched (you get shown where to pitch your tent) so the earlier the better! And it means one final decent night’s sleep before the carnage!

So that’s the flying and trains covered.

There is also the option of having a little roadtrip! I know a couple of people who have done this over the time frame of a couple of days and if you are brave enough then give it a go! Personally, I’d rather be in the confines of a comfy plane chatting up the stewards!

So there you go! I shall update you with where to book train tickets from the various airports as and when they are released!
