Getting to and around Madrid

You can reach Madrid by air from major european and international airports, by train from across Europe and if you plan to drive you can catch the ferry to the ports of Bilbao and Santander on the northern Spanish coast then head due south. The drive should take about four and a half hours.

From your cheap self catering holiday rental in Madrid, getting around is fast and reasonably priced - from hailing a taxi on the street to the frequent local bus and metro service, you can get where you want to go quickly and easily. A good tip would be to invest in a tourist pass if you plan on staying a while.

Visitor or tourist passes are available in 1, 3, 5 or 7 day increments and can considerably reduce your journey fares. However, if you do feel energetic, the city centre is fairly compact - walking is a great way to view the wonderful architecture up close and indulge in a cafe con leche or two as you explore this marvellous city.

The roads in the city are busy and if you are not used to driving on the right hand side of the road it could be difficult initially - the only month you can avoid the road crowds is in August when the Madrileños head to the coast for their summer holidays. However you plan to get there, and whatever you wish to do, there are perfect fully furnished and self catering accommodations in Madrid to suit all of your requirements.

When staying in the city for a longer period, you are able to visit some of the Spanish highlights by taking a day tour.
