  • Rail holidays within Spain

    Rail holidays within Spain

    Train travel within Spain is an excellent way of using your holiday time efficiently, allowing you to visit places of interest in different regions by covering large distances in short amounts of time. Take advantage of flights from regional airports to reach Spain quickly, then travel between destinations by high-speed rail service. This enables you to witness stunning scenery from the comfort of your seat, then you can choose to hire a car once you reach your destination if you wish to explore further.
    We have put together a number of suggested itineraries that include flights to Spain plus train travel, such as a multi-centre holiday in Madrid and Andalucia's main cities and a tour based around Spanish art and architecture. A luxurious alternative is a rail holiday on board Al Andalus luxury train, a unique hotel on wheels which offers routes throughout Spain and includes all meals and excursions. We also have some touring holiday suggestions that include flights to and from Spain, some train travel and a hire car to enable you to explore at leisure.

    You may also choose to travel all the way from the UK by rail, perhaps stopping in France along the way. Click her to find out more about rail holidays to Spain.

     An Expressions rail holiday is tailor-made according to your requirements and can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. From a single-centre stay in a destination that is reached by train to a touring holiday that visits multiple locations, we cater for your wishes.

    Holidays by air
    Most of our suggested touring itineraries are based on scheduled flights with British Airways, although we have used low cost airlines such as Easyjet where more convenient. British Airways operates a number of flight routes to mainland Spain and the Spanish islands, but none go to northern Spain so it is necessary to fly direct with a low-cost airline or to take a connecting flight within Spain. Low –cost airlines operate a large number of flights from regional airports in the UK to destinations throughout Spain. There are also flights within Spain making it easy to combine north and south without driving or spending all day travelling.

    Train travel within Spain
    AVE trains run between major Spanish cities and are widely considered to be amongst the very best in the world. High-speed lines enable these trains to cover vast distances in staggeringly quick times, while reliability is excellent. There are three classes on board, with meals provided in First and Super First class. Passengers must pass through a basis security check before boarding.
    Our hotels
    Each of the hotels that are featured by Spanish Expressions has been personally selected to offer exceptionally high standards of comfort, service and cuisine. Most of the hotels we feature are four or five star, although we have also chosen some small, charming hotels that haven’t been officially categorised. In this programme you will find our hand-picked selection of characterful boutique gems, exclusive seaside resorts, modern hotels and rustic properties in a rural setting, some located on large countryside estates. We also feature a number of the renowned Parador hotels, a collection of state-run properties which occupy historic buildings such as former monasteries, mediaeval fortresses and hilltop castles.

    Holidays with a hire-car
    We can include a hire-car as this offers a very cost-effective and convenient means of exploring the area in which you are staying. We work with Avis as they offer a variety of cars at a good range of offices throughout Spain, and have negotiated a number of benefits for you such as theft protection being included and no one-way drop off charge for most car types. It is possible to upgrade your hire-car if required – we include a basic hire-car which is adequate for just two people, a short break or if you don’t intend to do much driving, but you might want to up-grade to something larger and more powerful.
