Flying through Barcelona or Madrid from the UK may be less expensive than flying straight.

The cheapest method to travel to Algiers from the United States is through London (British Airways), Paris (Air France), or Frankfurt (Lufthansa).

More information about the Algiers airport may be found on the official website Aéroport d’Alger .

By train

The Algerian railway company is known as SNTF, and tickets may be purchased at train stations. Online booking does not seem to be available any more; schedules are subject to change; the best method to find out is to inquire at the railway station itself. The network is thick in the north. You can travel by rail from Tunisia to Algeria, but you will need to change trains at the border. Currently, all border crossings with Morocco are closed.

If possible, attempt to take one of the newer trains, which are more comfortable and climate-controlled.

By car

Libya has closed its land border with Algeria “temporarily.”
The most practical and safe route to enter Algeria by vehicle is via Tunisia. The Mauritanian and Malian borders are also unsafe, while the Moroccan border is blocked. It is important to note that if you wish to enter Algeria through Niger or the Tozeur border station in southern Tunisia, you must hire an official guide to accompany you over the Saharan roads; otherwise, authorities would not allow you to enter Algeria with your vehicle. If you wish to enter Algeria from the Tunisian border checkpoints in the north, there are no issues. The border with Morocco is still closed as of May 2012, although it is expected to reopen in July 2012.

By boat

Prices are typically more than flying, so if you can and don’t have a vehicle, take the aircraft. Algerie Ferries provides the majority of connections.
