No words can describe the feeling of a Contiki, and we got very lucky with the host we had. Ibiza and beyond is a must do for the party lovers.

When is the best time to visit Spain?

Generally speaking - late spring (April to May) or early autumn (September to October) is a good time to visit Spain - perfect weather, fewer people. But luckily, this stunning country has good weather year-round. So no matter when you choose to travel to Spain, you’re guaranteed to have a good time.

Do I need a visa to travel to Spain?

Your visa requirements can change according to your citizenship (and also according to the length and purpose of your visit). We always recommend that you check out our visa guide for more information.

What should I pack for a trip to Spain?

Your passport, of course! But some other essentials would be:

• Comfortable shoes: There’s gonna be a lot of walking around
Light jacket: It tends to get quite windy
Crossbody bags: To carry all your stuff when you’re admiring the Spanish streets

And the rest would depend on which season you’re arriving in Spain. Get loose, breathable clothes for summer, and multiple layers for winter.

What is the currency used in Spain?

The currency (that can buy you some sweet and crunchy churros) in Spain is Euro.

What is ATM access like in Spain?

Pretty good – especially in the top tourist hotpots.

How many days should I spend in Spain?

Usually around 10-15 days are enough to tick off all the Spanish highlights (that’s exactly how long our trips are, btw). And if you wanna catch just the main hotspots – Barcelona, Seville, and Madrid, about a week should be enough. But honestly, are any number of days enough? Those crunchy churros really keep you coming back for more...

Is it customary to tip in Spain?

Tips are common, but not mandatory. It's not as common to leave large tips, though. So, rounding up the bill works just fine.

Is tap water safe to drink in Spain?

Yep. Tap water is generally safe to drink in Spain. But you can always ask your Trip Manager if you’re doubtful.
