Flying to Spain in June is usually considered the best time to fly. However, you will find other deals are always available year round. August tends to be the warmest period in Spain so if you are looking for sun or warmer climates then look to fly around this time. October is the wettest if you need to factor this in to your plans.

When is the best time to book a flight to Spain?

The price you pay for your flight to Spain may vary depending on when you book. For the best chance of a lower fare, look to book 37 days in advance of your trip. Fares are likely to increase a fortnight or so before your departure date.

Where are the most popular flight destinations in Spain?

Barcelona, Madrid, Málaga, Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza are the most popular flight destinations in Spain.

Booking cheap flights to Spain will prompt one important question. How will you do everything you want to do in the time you have? Spain is an enchanting country, endlessly fascinating, with lots of colour and life and festival and fun. Where will you go? The Green North or the sun-baked south? Museum-packed Madrid or buzzing Barcelona? Spectacular Seville or grand Granada? The Balearics or the Canary Islands?

The Spanish approach life with passion. Nobody, with the exception perhaps of the Irish, parties like them. A leisurely siesta in the middle of the day sets them up for a late dinner (sitting down about 10pm) and then a night of bar hopping and dancing. Tapas, the appetizers served in bars, washed down by gutsy wines, provide the fuel for their night-time revelry.

Spain’s calendar of festivals is packed. The religious calendar – Christmas, the Epiphany (January 6), Semana Santa (Holy Week), and various saints’ days – provides a window on Spain’s heritage while festivals such as San Fermin (the running of the bulls), La Feria de Sevilla, and La Tomatina (the world’s biggest tomato fight) give the Spaniards – and their guests – the opportunity to get down and party.

Spain climate

Given Spain’s size and diverse geography, the climate varies greatly. In the north – Green Spain – the climate is Oceanic. Visitors can expect mild summers and warm winters and plenty of rain. In the centre, in Madrid for example, there is a Continental Mediterranean climate. The winters are cool and the summers are very hot. The Costas (including Barcelona, Spain’s “cool” capital) have a Mediterranean climate – sun year-round. The southeast (Murcia for example) is semi-arid. On the Canary Islands (off the northwest coast of Africa) the climate is subtropical.

When is the best time to fly to Spain?

There really is no bad time to visit Spain. It’s a four-season destination. 

Peak Season: 

The European summer (July and August) is high season. Spain is a popular destination with the British and the beach resorts will be very busy during their school holidays (mid-October, Christmas, mid-February, Easter, mid-May, and July and August). 

Off Season: 

Spain doesn’t really have a low season, but the weeks following the Epiphany (January 6) will be relatively quiet. 

Shoulder Season: 

April (following Easter), May, June and September are shoulder months. The weather will be good and there will be fewer tourists.

Getting around Spain

Several airlines offer cheap flights in Spain. These range from Iberia, the flag carrier, to Ryanair, the low-cost airline. Airlines face stiff competition from high-speed trains. The AVE high-speed trains are punctual and fairly cheap. The standard fare from Madrid to Barcelona is about $110 (approximately $168 AU) and the journey (660km) takes about two-and-a-half hours.

Renting a car is a good idea if you want to explore the more remote parts of Spain, but unnecessary if you are sticking close to the city or the beach. Public transport is excellent. In cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia there are metros, bus and tram services.
