Children under 4 years must always be accompanied by adults. Unaccompanied children under 4 will not be admitted in any service.
From 4 years old, transportation of unaccompanied minors is admitted in regular transport services for general use under the conditions set out below:
ALSA recommends its travelers and assumes responsibility for the carriage of unaccompanied minors when performed in class services (Supra+ or Premium) since these services have support staff that can monitor the trip is developing normally until destination (babysitter service).
In other services, children aged between 4 and 12 years may only travel unaccompanied if the parent or guardian issue the authorization for the minor to travel alone (always under the responsibility of the parent or guardian) and in accordance with the following specifications:
- During travel, the minor, along with the ticket must carry the authorization document signed by parents or guardians and stamped by ALSA.
- Authorization Document, which can be found at any ALSA point of sale, must be completed and signed by parents or guardians in duplicate before the trip, giving both copies at a point of sale ALSA, for sealing. These documents are not valid without the corresponding seal of ALSA.
There are two types of authorizations:
- Child's punctual transport permit when the parent/guardian authorizes the transport of children in a concrete and timely service.This document is valid only for this service.
- Child's temporary transport permit, in the case of minors traveling alone frequently.This authorization document will have a temporary validity of maximum one year, for a specific origin-destination.
Minors on international routes:
On international routes, children under the age of 16 must always be accompanied by a legally authorised adult, whilst those aged 16 to 18 years need a passport and police authorisation to travel.
