Best Time to Visit Spain

The best time to visit Spain is from May to June and again in September. July is Spain’s hottest month of the year, especially in the southern region of Andalucia.

Each season offers something unique to experience, depending on your goals during your Spain trip. In winter, hotel rates and restaurant prices drop. The best months to visit the region of Andalucia, such as cities like Seville and Granada, are May and September due to the warm summer temperatures and vibrant lifestyles that take place during these months.

Modes of Transportation in Spain

When traveling between big cities, the best way to see Spain is by high-speed train. The trains that service Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville are comfortable, fast, reliable, and accessible. Driving in Spain is a good idea when exploring more of the countryside and small villages of northern Spain, southern Spain, and if traveling between San Sebastian and Barcelona.

Domestic flights are possible and convenient when traveling long distances or off the mainland peninsula to islands such as Ibiza and Mallorca. Ferries are also available, but flights often have similar fares and take less time.

Car Rental

Renting a car in Spain is unnecessary due to the efficient and quick trains. Driving between big cities brings with it more complications, such as traffic, parking, unfamiliar or narrow roads, or the crowds and closed streets of a possible holiday. Driving is easy and enjoyable when along the coast or between small, remote towns of southern and northern Spain. Public transportation, such as trains, does not offer great access to the countryside and villages across the country, making a car-hire one of the best methods for traveling to secluded areas independently. Zicasso travel specialists will always include private transfers to and from the airport or between destinations for your best stress-free Spain tour, which circumvents possible taxi service charges, toll roads, or miscommunications.

What to Consider When Traveling Through Spain

Travel considerations during your Spain tour include safety, ease of logistics, and accessibility. The following information offers our recommendations on what to consider:

Is Spain Safe for Travel?

Spain is very safe. During your Spain tour, you will find the people and country safe, welcoming, and eager to share their culture. As anywhere, pickpocketing can be a concern, especially in larger tourist destinations like Barcelona. Healthwise, there are no concerns regarding the general safety of eating and drinking throughout Spain.

Which airports should I be looking at?

For most travelers, the most convenient airport is Madrid. The second most accessible airport to fly in or out of in Spain is Barcelona’s El Prat Josep Tarradellas Airport (BCN). The top active airports in mainland Spain are:

  • Madrid (MAD)
  • Barcelona (BCN)
  • Malaga (AGP)

Can Zicasso help me with flights?

By employing the same personalized service you can expect from planning a trip with Zicasso, our competitive flight pricing, 24x7 service and support, and complimentary consultation of routing versus pricing with an expert flight specialist make finding the perfect flight for your trip effortless.

Does Zicasso assist with travel insurance?

You’ve booked your dream vacation, now protect it with travel insurance. A wide range of factors can leave your vacation in limbo.
