Travelling from Biarritz airport to Salies de Bearn

Does anyone have any experience of making travel arrangements without a car from Biarritz to Salies de Bearn near Orthez? Thought we could hire a car but becasue of age and lack of credit card not looking possible. Any ideas would be gratefully received

Thanks LML

You can get as far as Orthez by train. Find times on http://www.voyages-sncf.com

You will need to get from Biarritz Airport to Gare La Négresse (or Bayonne Gare) first though so use http://www.chronoplus.eu to find your bus.

Then there is another bus from Orthez to Salies de Béarn though you don't say when you are coming so here is the bus page from the tourist office website: www.salies-de-bearn.fr/fr-transports.html

That all went wrong! Try again.

I am not far from there as I write. (It's been very misty and damp today!)

Here is the current bus timetable from Orthez to Salies de Béarn

www.transports64.fr/Interurbains?lang=fr

Go to horaires and find route 809. Three buses on weekdays, one on Saturdays and none at all on Sundays and Holidays.

Note that this bus route also stops at Puyoo, which is the station before Orthez coming from Bayonne. Some trains don't stop at Puyoo however, but check both just in case times are suitable. No sense in backtracking if not needed.

I'd recommend heading for Bayonne station. The airport is the same distance as from Biarritz and most of the trains to Puyoo start from Bayonne anyway.

And I have found another bus. This one runs from Dax (even more useful) via Puyoo to Salies de Béarn.

Rather irregular but is timed to connect with certain trains.
