Getting There in Algiers

Edit This

Algiers is the capital city, as well as being the largest city in Algeria. Algiers is flanked by the Mediterranean Sea, on the Northern tip of the African continent, and is centrally located within Algeria. If you are planning a trip to Algiers there are many ways in which to arrive/depart:

By Boat - many different ferry companies offers service to/from Algiers, one of the most popular is Ferries Algerie. There are several locations in which ferry services disembark to Algiers, from Naples, Italy, Palermo, Sicily, Marseilles and Nice, France, and the shortest would be from the Southern Spain mainland and the city of Alicante, Spain. These ferry services are usually cheap and can accommodate passengers and cars.

By Air - is probably the most efficient and convenient way to arrive in Algiers, located just over 10 miles southeast of the city. The Houari Boumedienne International Airport services over 15 airlines with international and domestic arrivals daily. Air Algerie is the most popular airline of Algeria.

By Train - located in the city center, Algiers Central Train Station services one daily train to Tunis, Tunisia via Constantine and Annaba. There is also one daily train from Algiers to Marrakech, Morocco. Make sure to check before travel that the Algerian/Moroccan border is open. Many lines operate within the country several times daily, you will want to check the timetable. Train travel is relatively inexpensive and standards are not bad.

By Car/Ground- Whether traveling by car, bus, or taxi crossing international borders into Algeria can be very daunting as security is very tight. Travel within Algiers is for the most part simple with all major highways leading to Algiers. Ground transportation seems to be a bit safer than train.
