Now let’s practice asking for a ticket to a specific destination from a teller. We’re going to use some phrases you can use on any type of transportation, so you don’t have to worry about the type of vehicle you are going to be using when using these phrases. There is one small detail to look out for in this practice.

In Spanish, when you’re asking for a one way ticket, you would say “pasaje”.

If you’re looking for a round trip ticket, you would say “ida y vuelta” -> “Going and coming”.

Repeat the following phrases in Spanish and in English, so you can get used to how to ask for different types of tickets. Repeat as many times as you need.

Let’s get started!  


Un boleto de ida y vuelta, por favor A round trip ticket, please.
Un pasaje para Oaxaca. A ticket to Oaxaca.
Un boleto de ida y vuelta para Medellín A round trip ticket for Medellin.
Un pasaje para Buenos Aires, por favor A ticket to Buenos Aires, please.
Un boleto de ida y vuelta a la Ciudad de México, por favor A round trip ticket to Mexico City, please.

We’ll see you in the next episode!
