in Mexico, Spain or South America. So stay tuned
and don’t forget to click the link below to check out our free online Spanish classes. Let’s take a look at some phrases for traveling. When we travel to a foreign country
where we need to speak Spanish the first thing we need to learn
is how to say hello. Let’s start with a few greetings. Let’s learn, “good morning”
“buenos días”. This works whenever you wake up early early in the morning all the way to noon. Now, at 12:00 PM
we can start saying, “Good afternoon” which is “buenas tardes”. We can keep going saying, “Buenas tardes” all the way until like 6:00 PM maybe start saying
“Good evening” or “good night” which is the same in Spanish, “Buenas noches”. This phrase works
if you’re arriving to a restaurant or arriving to a party. You want to say, “Oh, hello, good evening”. “Buenas noches. Hola, buenas noches”. Whenever you’re leaving you can also say “Buenas noches, adiós. Buenas noches”. Now, let’s add a little bit more to this phrase. “Hola, buenos días. ¿Cómo está?” which means
“Hello, good morning. How are you?” “Hola, buenos días. ¿Cómo está?” If you have a question it’s nice to say the following phrase “Excuse me, I have a question”. “Disculpe, tengo una pregunta”. The word “disculpe”
means “Excuse me” or “I’m sorry”. You can use it if you bump into someone or “Oh, you dropped something” you can say, “Disculpe”.
“Excuse me” or, “Oh, sorry. Whoops”. You can also say, “Perdón”. Perdón means, “I’m sorry”. It doesn’t work to ask for someone’s attention like, “Excuse me, I have a question”. You wouldn’t say, “Perdón, tengo una pregunta”. That would be apologizing
because you have a question. So, “perdón” if you bump into someone if you drop something.
“Perdón”. “I’m sorry”. If everything is going great in your trip
and you want to say, “Thank you” you can say, “Muchas gracias”. “Lots of thanks”. In México you can also say
“Muchísimas gracias”, even more thanks. If you would like to tell
a person to have a nice day you would say, “Que tenga un buen día”. If you hear this phrase for you you would say, “Oh, likewise”.
You can say, “Igualmente”. Now, when arriving to your hotel you might want to check
on your reservation or ask for a room so you will go to the lobby and say, “Buenas tardes.
Tengo una reservación” which means, “Good afternoon.
I have a reservation”. Of course, you can change “buenas tardes” for “buenos días”, “buenas noches”. If you’re unsure or if oh, is it noon? Is it not? You can just say, “Buen día” “Good day” or “Hola”, “Hello”. If you don’t have a reservation maybe you’re calling to the hotel
to make one or you’re arriving to the lobby “I’m looking for a room. I need to book a room” you can say the following phrase “I would like to make a reservation”. “Me gustaría hacer una reservación”. Remember the word, “Excuse me”, “Disculpe”. We can now say
“Excuse me, I need help with my luggage”. “Disculpe, necesito ayuda con mi equipaje”. If you need something
at the hotel, maybe more towels you can say, “Necesito más toallas, por favor”. “I need more towels, please”. If you’re ever in trouble and you are
not sure how to say something in Spanish you want to ask the other person if they speak English
or they speak French or your language you can say, “Disculpe, ¿habla inglés?” If you want to ask a person
to repeat something in Spanish you can say, “Perdón, ¿puede repetirlo?” This is, “I’m sorry, can you repeat it?” “Perdón, ¿puede repetirlo?” We can also add to this phrase
“Oh, I’m sorry, can you repeat it slowly?” “Perdón, ¿puede repetirlo más despacio?” To ask, “Where is the bathroom?” we can say in Spanish, “¿Dónde está el baño?” If you need to know where is the pool you can say, “¿Dónde está la piscina?” “Piscina” is known as pool
in Spain, in South America in Mexico, but in Mexico
they also use another word for pool “alberca”. “¿Dónde está la alberca?” If you ever need an ATM, where is the ATM you can say it this way “¿Dónde está el cajero automático?” and if you ever need to exchange money currency exchange place, you would ask “¿Dónde está la casa de cambio?” We can also say
“Disculpe, ¿hay una casa de cambio?” This is, “Excuse me
is there a currency exchange place?” If you need to buy something
and you’re wondering what the price is you can ask, “How much does it cost?”
“¿Cuánto cuesta?” Now, if you’re in a restaurant with your family with your friends, you need to order you would say this phrase
“Joven, estamos listos para ordenar”. This is when you’re talking to a male waiter “Young man, we are ready to order”. If you’re speaking to a waitress then you would say, “Señorita” which is, “Young lady”, or just “lady”. “Señorita, ya estamos listos para ordenar”. “We are ready to order”. For the phrase
“I would like to order a salad, please” you would say, “Me gustaría ordenar
una ensalada, por favor”. To say the phrase, “Can you bring me
some chicken with rice without spicy pepper?” it’s going to be
“¿Me puede traer pollo con arroz sin chile?” If you don’t eat pepper
this is important to know in Mexico “Sin chile, por favor”. If you would like to order
more water for your whole table you would say, “¿Nos trae más agua, por favor?” “Would you bring us more water, please?” If you need the check you would say “¿Me trae la cuenta, por favor?” “Would you bring me the check, please?” Let’s talk about when we are getting around, we’re taking a taxi or an Uber or a Lyft, you can tell your ride
“We are going to the California Hotel, please”. You can say in Spanish
“Vamos al Hotel California, por favor”. If you need to go somewhere
you’re looking for a taxi, you’re planning to walk, you could ask the front desk, “How do I get here?” and show them here. “¿Cómo llego aquí?”. “How do I get here?” If you need a taxi “Necesito un taxi”.
If you’re looking for the bus stop or “Where can I get in a bus?”
“¿Dónde puedo tomar el autobús?” Notice “tomar” can mean to take, to drink to take literally something from the table. You’re not taking a bus
you’re getting in the bus but that’s how it translates to Spanish. “¿Dónde puedo tomar el autobús?” “Where can I get in the bus or take the bus? A word for “bus” in Mexico is “camión” but the most common one, “autobús”. For the phrase “I need help” which you might need, of course
you can say, “Necesito ayuda”. Which of these Spanish travel phrases will you use the most during your trip? Leave a comment and let us know. If you enjoyed this video
