Please advise me the best way of travek from Bilbao to Bordeaux.
What option is faster and cheaper, rent a car or train?
Thanks in advance!
Neither becasue with renting car you have large one way drop off becasue you have a Spanish car going to France. I think that there must be a bus that can take you between these cities. Have you studied eurolines.fr/fr/…
The train from Blbao to Hendaye is an option but a very slow one. Look up times here: http://www.euskotren.es
Then at Hendaye you would need to change onto the French SNCF service. Get times here: www.voyages-sncf.com
As Cadiz has said, hiring a car is expensive when you leave a hire car in another country. You could potentially drive from Bilbao to Hondarribia (or Irun) which just the other side of the border from Hendaye. Then leave your Spanish hire car there and walk across the border and hire a French car in Hendaye.
