How far in advance should I plan a Spain vacation?

Spain is one of Europe’s most popular destinations with warm weather, a relaxing and relaxed ambiance, as well as renowned food and wine. With the possibility of postponed trips from 2020 and increased demand from international travelers looking to visit in late 2021 and into 2022, accommodations and access to activities may be limited in some regions.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, we recommended travelers to Spain book their trip between 3-4 months in advance. If you prefer to travel during the high season, we now recommend booking your trip between 6-8 months in advance to account for the limited accommodations and activities. This timeframe can give you a better opportunity to secure your preferred accommodations, experience your chosen tours, and access the best guides.

Last-minute trip planning is possible, and your Zicasso travel specialist can ensure an exceptional vacation experience.

How do I plan my trip to Spain?

Any visit to a new country can introduce various questions, and travel after Covid-19 may have changed previously well-known answers.

“Do I have to wear a mask on the train?” “Is the Alhambra open?” “Will I be able to do a wine tour in the Rioja Valley or a tapas tour in San Sebastian?” “How will I travel from Madrid to Barcelona?” “Are the beaches open?” “Do I need a negative Covid-19 test before returning home, and how can I get one?” Working with a travel specialist means you can get answers to these questions and more before you book your trip. A travel specialist can also help handle any emergency that may arise during your trip — from a late flight to a change in tour time, as well as booking a restaurant reservation.

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.
