 The closest International Airport is Bilbao Airport, really accessible with lot of European cities, nice connections and you should find interesting prices, especially for end of September and October, since summer is gone and airliners put a lot of attractive prices to motivate tourism.

 

  • How to get to Vitoria.

You can choose some options depending on your budget, we can summarize them by the money you can spent.

 

  • Rent a car at the Airport.

You will find most of the Car Rental companies (Hertz, Avis, Sixt, Autoeurope, Alamo, Budget, Dollar, Europcar, Pepecar). The average price for a day is about 50-60€ and Vitoria is 90 Km south Bilbao, so it takes random 45-55 minutes so you will not have to worry about the km you will drive.

There are every 30 minutes buses from the Airport to Bilbao Bus station for 1,35€ ticket with city bus service (Bizkaibus) between 6:15 and 00:00 and from Bilbao to Vitoria Bus station (we recommend to take the short trip, which drives through the highway down to Vitoria direct with no stoppings),  takes aprox 45 minutes (La Unión. See timetable Bilbao-Vitoria-Bilbao)
