We have family who would like to visit us in calpe this year but one of the party has a fear of flying and i would like to find out if anyone knows of a company who operates a coach from London area to calpe or benidorm .

I have looked online and some operaters do come here but its usually a package with hotel we just want seats on the coach .

Any experience or advice would be much appreciated. 

Thanks

Try the Internet ' coach London to Alicante ' - quite  lot of choice , or Madrid and then train , no need for a package holiday at all 👍

I have used Flix bus from London to Alicante. It was cheap but very, very long and I took the option of returning by train  to Paris which was faster, more comfy and still not too expensive. Then I got Flix back to London.

The Flix bus stopped regularly on the way down, had to change at Paris and Barcelona. Unfortunately, the Barcelona to Alicante run was dreadful as the w.c. didn't work and no water on board.

Train can be cheap enough if you look for deals.

Hi 

My ex also refused to fly (to see her Dad in a village near Valencia)

We travelled by train instead. On the first occasion we took Eurostar to Paris, then a sleeper to Barcelona where we stayed for one day/night, and then got the train to Valencia.

The second time, we took Eurostar, then a train to Montpellier and stayed for a couple of nights before onwards to Valencia. On the way back we stopped at Perpignan instead of Montpellier.

The stops were purely to see a bit more of the world, but I think it was possible to do the whole trip in one day.

In your case, you could get a train from Valencia to Alicante, and then the tram to Calpe.

We found the trains comfortable and very good value. In planning the trips, I took careful note of precisely when the tickets went on sale which was always midnight on whatever day. I then logged in just before midnight and got the cheapest tickets, usually in first class.

Btw - this was over 20 years ago, some of the trains may be quicker these days!

Cheers

Steve
