Buy Tot Montserrat or Trans Montserrat Pass?

What is the difference between TOT Montserrat and Trans Montserrat passes? Which one is the best pass for going to Montserrat from Barcelona?

Most Helpful Answer

Trans Montserrat is surely a better pass than TOT Montserrat

I personally prefer Trans Montserrat pass over the TOT Montserrat. Both are very good with almost equal benefits on all counts; but for me Trans Montserrat wins for 3 reasons that I describe below.

1. Trans Montserrat is much cheaper

You will save almost 18 € when you buy the Trans Montserrat pass. It costs 31.80 € compared to the Tot Montserrat pass which costs 49.95 €. What you give up is some benefits which I also tell you about next.

2. Trans Montserrat is more flexible

The Trans Montserrat pass does not include Museum entry and the self service Catalan lunch. These are the 2 benefits of TOT Montserrat pass that you will give up.

But you save 18 €. With that money you can decide for yourself if you want to buy a separate Montserrat museum entry (for 7€). And you can also decide what to eat and how much to spend, instead of the designated lunch.

I have seen that most visitors will end up spending much less than the saved 18€ this way.

3. Every other benefit is common to both passes

TOT and Trans Montserrat both have the same exact benefits for transportation; both also include entry to the audiovisual exhibit.

These passes make it convenient to visit Montserrat, one of the most popular excursions from Barcelona.
