Spain has been one of the most popular places for Brits looking to escape the humdrum of life in the UK, whether it is just for a short-term holiday in one of the many new modern designed villas or something a bit more long-term. It also depends largely on the type of travel experience you want to have. While some are quicker, easier and more direct; others take long but are more about the journey involved.

To help you understand some of the options open to you if you are planning on taking a trip to Spain and just trying to understand your options, we will discuss the most popular in the following post.

By Plane

Obviously, nowadays the quickest and most direct way to get to Spain is by plane. Given that most of the big city airports up and down the UK have flights to and from Spain, it isn’t too hard finding an appropriate one from your location.

The earlier you book flights, the better the deal you are likely to get. You should also investigate comparing the flights offered by different airlines too, to find the best deal possible.

By Train

With the Euro Tunnel, you can travel by train to Spain. This does include a trip to France first, but if you are looking to make the journey part of your trip, then this is a nice way to do it. The problem with this is that you would have to travel to Cheriton in Folkestone, Kent.

By Boat

The UK has always had good connections with many places across the world and Spain is no exception. Again, this is not quite as quick or direct a way to get to Spain, but it is for some people a fun way to travel and can add to the excitement of your journey.


An economic and more independent way to get where you need to, and you can travel to Spain by driving there. Of all the options we have spoken about though, depending where you are in the country, this is perhaps the one method of transport that takes will take the longest. Unless, you are travelling from Folkestone or somewhere nearby and can access the Channel Tunnel easily. If you are a fan of driving and have an eco-friendly car it can be a great way to drive.

Spain is one of the most popular destinations for Brits with good reason. The temperature and weather in general, all the year round, is mild to hot. You are close to beaches and the lifestyle is more laidback than back here in the UK. There is always the fact that the cost of living is not as high. So, whether you are planning to visit Spain with a view to moving there for good or you are just looking to take a nice break in a warm climate, we are sure you can see that there are plenty of options to suit all preferences when it comes to travel there.
