that's enough summer, and when you do it holiday budget, the cost of accommodation, food and exits must add an element of no less importance: Transport, a cost that usually has a significant impact on family planning.
travel did the calculation how much it costs tickets to the main summer destination, Mar del Plata, into the train bus and plane; and also an average calculation to enter auto owned two routes: direct motorway 2 or routes 29 and 226.
Auto (from 4h 30s)
There are three main routes to reach Mardel in Buenos Aires: the most direct and usual is Route of the road 2; and alternatives are routes 36 and 11, closer to the coast and combination of routes 29 to Balcarce and from there 226.
Highway 2 is the most direct route: 415 km. How to get there by car to Mar del Plata will cost about $ 1,838 (Mauricio Nievas)
The Autopista of La Plata and then Highway 2 is 415 km and four taxes. The first highway is at the South Dock and Hudson, and each cost $ 25. On Highway 2, taxes are in Samborombón and Maipú, and each one has to pay $ 75. Thus, getting to Mardel by car requires a $ 200 tax plus diesel. If we calculate an average fuel consumption of 10 km per liter, it will be nearly 42 liters of diesel. At an average of $ 39 per liter of super, it would be $ 1,638 of fuel, which gives a total of $ 1,838 of naphtha and tolls (or $ 3,676 round-trip). If two people travel, they are $ 919 for each. For a typical family (four people), it is the cheapest car, though not so far away from the train: $ 459.5 each.
36 + 11 route variants have the same cost, although not a motorway, and several km: 486. So it's not advisable if you want to save money. The most economical option is 29 at Paraje Don Alberto, near Balcarce, and then route 226 to Mardel: this option has a single charge of $ 45 and 477 km of route. The total cost for a standard car would be $ 1905.30 ($ 952.65 each if there are two people, $ 476.32 if there are four).
Train (5h 30s)
From December 7 there will be a direct service that will bring together the Constitución with Mar del Plata in 5h30 (David Fernández)
Starting December 7, the Buenos Aires-Mar del Plata route will add a new direct service (no intermediate stops) that will last 5 hours 30 to unite Constitución with the Feliz terminal and costs $ 660 per square meter or $ 1,320 first, and $ 795 per square meter ($ 1,590 round trip) to Pullman. Of course, there is a 10% discount for those who buy their ticket through the web (www.webventas.sofse.gob.ar), paying with credit or debit cards; 40% discount for retirees and 50% for children under 12, while children under 3 years of age do not travel for free.
The new direct train will leave Buenos Aires every day at 6.22 and will travel from Mar del Plata at 13.14. Common trains with 12 intermediate stops will have the same rate, although it lasts between 6h15 and 6h30. They leave the Constitution from Monday to Saturday at 15.29 and Sunday at 15.20 and return daily to Mar del Plata until 1.01.
Bus (5h 15 & # 39;)
Suite bedding machines offer great comfort.
Prices vary between $ 1,280 and $ 2,320 round trip, by date, company and service. Standard rates are US $ 1,005 per executive bed and $ 1,160 in Suite Suite. But, depending on the date, promotions are made in Semicama at $ 640 (El Pulqui) or $ 665 (El Rápido).
Plan (50 & # 39;)
Return flights with $ 3,189 (Delfo Rodriguez)
It is the most expensive option and obviously the fastest. We are looking for tickets with departure date January 28 and we will return on February 6 and, interestingly, we find them cheaper in Aerolíneas Argentinas than in low cost Avianca, which is the other one flying from Buenos Aires: in Aerolíneas, return flights from Aeroparque to Astor Piazzolla Airport starting at $ 3,189.83 (although you have to hurry because there are few places at the lowest rate). In Avianca, also from Aeroparque, we did not find tickets for less than $ 5,730 Two way
