Cheap flights to Madrid

From the regal steps of the Royal Palace to night-time flamenco dancing displays, Madrid is nothing short of magnificent. Spain’s capital city and a tourist’s delight, there is plenty to do and see in Madrid, regardless of the season, and without too many Euros being spilled. Top 10 sights include the Puerta del Sol – Madrid’s most central square and a short walk from Plaza Mayor. By far the most famous street in Madrid is La Gran Via, which is often showcased in films and the Spanish opera. The rooftops along the street are often lavishly decorated and sometimes feature large statues perching on the ledges. Universal Traveller can make your Madrid dreams come true with our cheap flights so you'll be cosying up to Madrid’s most cosmopolitan in no time.

Madrid’s Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas International Airport (MAD) is Spain’s biggest and busiest airplane hub. The airport is located in the region of Barajas, about 15 kilometres northeast of downtown Madrid, and is jointly named after the first Prime Minister of the country. To get from the airport to downtown, choose from either the Madrid Metro service or EMT bus service. The airport is also linked by high-speed rail to the train station of Madrid and offers an express bus service too. EMT also offers a night bus service for later arrivals and departures.

About Madrid

Madrid is the capital of Spain and is home to more than 6.5 million locals. Madrid is located on the Manzanares River and has a thriving economy and vibrant cultural scene – being a well-known gay friendly city and one of the most liberal places in Spain to just hang out and be yourself. Watch Real Madrid play at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium or take an open-topped bus tour around to see the sights. You can’t miss the Debod Temple, which is believed to date back to 2BC with dedication to the gods, Isis and Amon. You’ll find it near Plaza de Espana and close to the infamous rose garden, Rosaleda. Madrid is much more than just chocolate con churros, but would be amazing anyway if was only known for churros alone.

Eat at the world’s oldest restaurant and test out tapas before enjoying a walk in Retiro Park or buying something special at the Rastro weekly flea markets – find out all you need to know about travelling to Madrid here.
