Seville airport to Granada

Hi -

Apologies if this is a duplicate question but wasn't able to find the answer to this. We land in Seville airport around 11am and are looking to go directly to Granada. Is this an easy drive? I looked at the train timetables and unfortunately the timing would require us to kill ~4 hours. I assume there may be bus options, but would it be much quicker to grab a rental car and just drive directly? My only concern is doing a lot drive while being tired coming in off a flight from the U.S.

Thank you in advance for your help.

There is a bus that leaves from Prado de San Sebastian bus station at 14.30 and arrives into Granada by 17.30 which to me at least makes more sense after a transatlantic flight.

If you land on time into Sevilla I'd grab a taxi and go to the Plaza de Armas bus station - there's also a noon bus that you could very likely make. It gets into Granada at 3pm. After a transatlantic flight I'd rather pay 25 euro or so for a taxi to get me to the bus station if It means not having to wait another 2.5 hours. If you're not able to land and get your luggage by 11:30 then it's probably a better bet to wait for the 14:30 bus - just note that at leaves from the Prado de San Sebastian bus station.

I wouldn't bother with renting a car especially since you don't need it within the cities and will be jetlagged.

Thank you both for your quick response! Sounds like one of the two bus options is the way to go. We are going to drive back from Granada to Seville through Ronda but based off this I'll likely rent the car in Granada and just take the bus there.

Thanks again!

I would also go by bus. Or by train, because going to Seville train station from the airport is even quicker (10 mins or so in a taxi)

you can also rent a car in Seville's airport if you want, you are in the good side of the city (north east) but you'll have to change from A4 to A92 highway, but it's an easy change. Then to Granada it's a 2h30min drive, good highway.

I would not rent a car for staying in Granada or Seville, as it becomes more of a hassle, very difficult parking and driving and you really don't need it as both are very walkable and with great public transport. You can also do a daytrip to Ronda from Seville by bus.

Thanks for the response. I think we will rent a car at the Seville airport and drive to Granada. Although we don't need it in Granada, our plan is to drive back to Seville through Ronda so the flexibility of the car will be nice. Picking up and dropping the car off in Seville seems to be cheaper than picking up in Granada, and we have free parking at our hotel in Granada.
