Generally, the cheapest time to fly to Ibiza is between November and April. During the low season, some restaurants and clubs shut down, leaving visitors to experience the authentic local lifestyle. Flights are cheaper during these cooler winter months, while flight prices rise during the shoulder seasons and even more during the busy high season when all the parties take place.
The flight from London to Ibiza takes 2 hours and 20 minutes. British Airways provides several direct flights from London to Ibiza, so you can fly from London Heathrow (LHR), London Gatwick (LGW) or London City (LCY) to arrive in Ibiza (IBZ).
Ibiza’s airport lies just five miles from Ibiza Town and is connected to it by a regular bus service, which costs about €3.50 per journey. Buses run between the island’s major towns, such as San Antonio and Santa Eulalia. However, Ibiza’s small size means that taxis are relatively affordable even for longer distances across the island. Expect to pay only €15-30 for most journeys – but be warned, queues during the summer months can be quite long. Alternatively, hire a car to drive to your hotel and enjoy the island in your own time.
If you are travelling on a European Union passport then you currently do not need a visa to visit Ibiza. Ibiza is recognised as Spanish territory, and therefore travel restrictions are the same as they are on mainland Spain.
