Re: online rail ticket procedure

Never had a problem as you describe in forty years. There is many a guide on the web, including that on seat61. A hugely comprehensive and up to date guide is on TripAdvisor.
My afterthought - did you buy your tickets from an agency or from RENFE?

Re: Which train station for Sevilla for arrival

Much the same as immediately above. Note - if you go for San Bernardo, you change at Santa Justa for the short journey to S.B.

Re: Possible train strike 18 December

Why were you unable to purchase? Is this at the station or on-line? Legislation dictates trains will run and for your day only two appear to be a problem on the website.

Re: DSLR camera and travel in Andalucia

To repeat mentioned above - muggers are muggers and extremely rarely do muggings happen in Spain compared to the U.S. and other parts of the western world. Pickpockets are a different animal.

Re: Buses from Faro to Huelva

'ALSA will only process Spanish credit cards online'.
Have you tried? I had no problem with my British Nationwide VISA card, or perhaps it was Amex, the last time used in April. Additionally there is PayPal.

Re: vacation to andalusie-advice dec 2015

You may want to visit all these places but you leave yourselves little time to see, do and appreciate with ten days. Sorry, but this is too many places and would be foolishly paced. I suggest you recognize the amount of time spent travelling, from door to door in unfamiliar surroundings and the litt...

Re: Martos buses

'It seems that Alsa buses depart hourly from Granada airport. ' - Unless you can show me some change in the last few days and not yet published on the schedules, certainly not so.

Re: Hotel Websites

booking.com is one of very few which has reviews from those who have certainly stayed at a premises and no others. i.e. and e.g. on most websites, anyone can slate somewhere or big it up if they have an agenda .

Re: Taxi Estapona

As a guide to taxi fare I work with €1.10 per km. in Spain. Therefore Malaga airport to Estepona about 80kms. x €1.10 plus airport surcharge which I cannot imagine is greater than €10. Double check all that follows. There is a bus direct with AVANZABUS.COM a couple of times a day, which I suggest wo...

Re: 3 ladies travelling first time

Without knowing what the three of you want to see in this huge area, whether 'home base' is intended to mean you will make day trips from this base and how you wish to travel to and from wherever, I could only say neither are conducive 'to see the south'.

Re: In and around Jaen for the day

'places of interest in the city' - at least -
The view from the Santa Catalina castillo over the city - you can drive up almost all the way.
The largest Arab bath house remains in Spain.
