Hello everyone 

We bought a villa on La Marina Urb. last July but haven't managed to get back over for one reason or another, so we're slightly lacking in knowledge! Hopefully we'll be over at the end of February so any information will be gratefully appreciated  

Are there any local bus services, are they regular and reliable too ?

Are the local taxis easily accessible and also reasonably priced ?

Also is there a local car hire company /individual ? 

Thanks for any help

Adele

I've always found the bus service very hit & miss and very limited. Can't say about car hire as we drive over for the summer months. Enjoy your stay!

Bus service is only available in july and august where there is a bus line between Alicante and

Torrevieja. There is another bus line but I'm not sure if it is available the whole year. It is between Alicante and Cartagena. The bus stop is situated in La Marina village.

The taxi service is great if you like paying 15 euros to travel less than 3km an expensive trip never use them again.

Hi Adele66, there is a company called Lara cars at the top of the Urb, there prices don't seem to bad, but whatever you do avoid DoyouSpain and Dickmanns car rentals, unless you take out dickmanns insurance, they swipe your credit card and hold on to the money for ages, I am presently trying to get mine back with little success. Alternatively other than Lara cars e-mail wheels in Spain, and get a quote from them.
