TAXI - Hendaye to San Sebastian return

How long does this journey take each way and what would the cost be?

Would I need to allow extra time in the morning for traffic? My train home from Hendaye leaves at 9.45am

There are two routes from San Sebastian to Hendaye; first is the motorway route which takes about 15 minutes and there is never any traffic. Second is via the GI-636 which is usually about 20 minutes but there can be some traffic.

Which way you go depends on which way your taxi driver decides to take you. The motorway is obviously faster but there is a toll of €2.12 but no tolls on the GI-636 so the driver might prefer that route for profitability.

There is not usually any increase in traffic at any particular time of day.

There is also the option of trains every 1/2 hour or so for a couple of euros see the website ( It is not English, but easy to work out). http://www.euskotren.es/eu/ordutegiak

+1 for using the Euskotren, its terminal in Hendaye is only a few metres from the SNCF station.

Note that the system uses the Basque name of Donostia for San Sebastian (the main station is Donostia - Amara), and Hendaia for Hendaye.

The system is independently operated and does not have reservations, which is why it doesn't show up on international journey planners.
