Spain’s a country that captures the heart of anyone who visits. Madrid and Barcelona are energetic cities that are packed with plenty to do; the Costa del Sol is renowned for its beautiful Mediterranean beaches, while the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa are among the best mountain ranges on the continent. Alternatively, you can explore the Moorish towns of the south, or go on a cultural pilgrimage to Bilbao.
Food and wine are national obsessions in Spain and many of the country’s best recipes have been handed down through the generations. Side streets in the cities are often packed with ornate tapas bars and Michelin-starred restaurants, where you can try the freshest fish and latest Mediterranean dishes. Don’t worry about being too full after lunch, either; you can treat yourself to a siesta like a local.
Spanish is the country’s national language, but many people in Spain also speak variants of Catalan, Galician and Basque. Like many other countries on the continent, Spain’s currency is the euro. It’s easily accessible and tradable, so you can exchange your money before you travel or when you arrive.
No matter where you’re heading in Spain, it's important that you get travel insurance to help protect you against risks you may encounter. We offer different levels of cover, so you can choose an insurance type to suit your needs. If you’re taking a family holiday to Majorca, for example, then you may find that our Family travel insurance is best suited to your needs. But if you’re planning to visit Ibiza with friends, then our Group policy may be better.
