What’s the cheapest month to fly to Madrid?

Is Madrid cheap to visit?

You can make your trip to Madrid fit any budget. Seek out local tapas bars where you can enjoy cheap drinks and indulge in small plates for reasonable prices. Many of Madrid’s world-class sights are free to visit, so take advantage of the sunny weather and explore the city by foot. Plenty of the free activities are in the heart of the city. Try Campo del Moro, a garden that sits just beneath the Palacio Real and Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida, a chapel where you can admire Francisco de Goya’s work in its original setting.

Is it easy to get around Madrid?

We fly to Madrid-Barajas Airport, which is located just under 30 minutes outside of the city centre. From there you can use the metro service to access the historic city centre area, or you can catch a taxi from just outside the terminal building to the busy business district if you’re travelling for work. If you’re looking to travel further afield during your stay, you can also arrange a car hire once you arrive at the airport.

You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what Madrid has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

Why visit Madrid?

Apart from having a hoard of excellent art collections, Madrid is full of mouth-watering eateries and enormous parks, and its home to Europe’s largest palace – the Palacio Real. You can take part in Spain’s famed tapas-hopping tradition, where you visit one tapas bar after the other, sampling a selection of delicious small plates alongside a glass of wine, cana – a small beer – or a vermouth. After you’ve had your fill, you can join the locals as they dance the night away.
