O summerand when making a holiday budget, housing, food and exits, we must add a no less important item: the transport, a cost that usually has a significant impact on family planning.
Trip did the calculation of how much will it cost the tickets to the main summer destination, Silver Sea, in train bus and airplane; and also an average calculation to enter car owned by two routes: Highway 2, direct, or routes 29 and 226.
Auto (from 4:30 p.m.)
There are three main routes to get to Mardel from Buenos Aires: the most direct and Highway 2; and the alternatives are broken 36 and 11, closer to the coast and the combination of routes 29 until near Balcarce and from there route 226.
Highway 2 is the most direct route: 415 km. Arriving by car to Mar del Plata will cost about US $ 1,838.00 (Mauricio Nievas)
By Motorway to La Plata and then Highway 2 are 415 km and four tolls. The first highway is in Dock Sud and Hudson, and each one costs $ 25. On Highway 2, the tolls are in Samborombón and Maipú, and in each you have to pay $ 75. So getting to Mardel by car will require $ 200 toll plus naphtha. If we calculate an average consumption of 10 km per liter, it will be almost 42 liters of naphtha. With 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 toll (or $ 3,676 round trip). If two people travel, they are $ 919 for each. For a typical family (four people), it is the cheapest transportation, although not so far from the train: $ 459.5 each.
The 36 + 11 variant routes have the same toll cost, although it is not a highway, and more km: 486. Therefore, it is not advisable if you want to save money. The most economical alternative is the 29 to Paraje Don Alberto, near Balcarce, and from there route 226 to Mardel: this option has a single toll of $ 45 and 477 km of route. The total cost of a standard car would be $ 1,905.30 ($ 952.65 each, if there are two people, $ 476.32 if there are four).
Train (from 5:30 p.m.)
From December 7, there will be a direct service that will join Constitución with Mar del Plata in 5h30 (David Fernandez)
From December 7, the Buenos Aires-Mar del Plata route will add a new direct service (without intermediate stops), which will take 5:30 am to join the Constitución with the Feliz terminal and cost US $ 660 per way, or $ 1,320 round trip, at First, and $ 795 per stretch ($ 1,590 round trip) in Pullman. Of course, there is a 10% discount for those who buy your ticket online (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 who do not occupy a seat travel for free.
The new direct train will leave Buenos Aires every day at 6.22 and depart from Mar del Plata at 13.14. Common trains with 12 intermediate stops will have the same rate, although they take between 6:15 and 6:30 am. They leave the Constitution from Monday to Saturday at 15.29 and on Sundays at 15.20, and return from Mar del Plata every day to 1.01.
Bus (5h 15 & # 39;)
The cars of the suite offer great comfort.
Prices vary between US $ 1,280 and US $ 2,320 round trip, depending on the date, company and service. Standard rates are $ 1,005 per Executive Bed and $ 1,160 in Bed Suite. But, according to the date, the promos are obtained in Semicama for $ 640 (El Pulqui) or $ 665 (El Rápido).
Airplane (50 – 39)
Airlines have round-trip tickets from $ 3,189 (Delfo Rodriguez)
It is the most expensive and obviously the fastest option. We look for tickets with departure date on January 28 and return on February 6 and, curiously, we find them cheaper than Aerolíneas Argentinas low cost Avianca, which is the other one that flies from Buenos Aires: in Aerolíneas, the round trip tickets from Aeroparque to Astor Piazzolla Airport from $ 3,189.83 (although you have to hurry because there are few places at the cheaper rate). At Avianca, however, also at Aeroparque, we do not find tickets for less than $ 5,730 round trip.
