Mainland Spain

For Formula 1 fans, why not start with a visit to the birthplace of Fernando Alonso and Pedro de la Rosa? The focus of holidays to Spain has traditionally been all about beaches, but foreign visitors are increasingly being drawn by the country’s rich cultural heritage and spectacular countryside. Head to Andalucía for a heady mix of guitars, flamenco, matadors and fiestas, or enjoy the vibrant and glamorous cities of Barcelona and Madrid.

Cheap holidays to Benidorm are always popular, thanks to the resort’s amazing beaches and fantastic cuisine.

The Canary Islands

Aside from the miles of dazzling black sandy beaches and lively nightlife, holidays in Tenerife cater to the chic and stylish too. Puerto de la Cruz has long been a popular destination for the rich and famous. The resort extends from the waterfront to a mixture of narrow, cobbled streets, elegant plazas and stylish boardwalks. In fact, Tenerife is home to many classy boutiques, terraced restaurants and traditional coffee shops.

The Balearic Islands

Stunning scenery, blissful beaches and captivating resorts – the Balearic Islands have a long history of attracting celebrities and those searching for beautiful landscapes or hedonistic holidays. With the rise of club culture in the 1980s and 1990s, cheap Ibiza holidays have proved to be very popular.  However, if you want your holiday to Ibiza to be more peaceful and relaxing then head north, where you will find resorts surrounded by lush greenery, woodland and olive groves.
