  • Air and rail touring holidays to Spain

     Air and rail touring holidays to Spain

    Enjoy a touring holiday where you travel to Spain by air then continue between destinations by train. This allows you to cover large distances quickly, taking advantage of high speed services and convenient rail connections to use your time efficiently. Having organised tailor-made holidays since 1989, we have a great wealth of experience in creating self-drive holidays and have put together a range of suggested itineraries that combine luxury hotels in popular destinations.
    Browse our suggested touring itineraries which can all be modified according to your requirements or call us so that we can create a bespoke touring holiday just for you. You have the freedom to choose where you would like to travel and how long you would like to stay in each place - please contact us for advice and ideas.
    Some of these suggested itineraries include the use of a hire-car, allowing you to take in the stunning Spanish landscapes from the comfort of your train seat then explore the destination at your leisure.

    Touring holiday information

    Spanish Expressions organises tailor-made touring holidays that allow you to discover the true flavour of Spain, staying in as many destinations as you like for as long as you like.
    Your touring holiday can be as simple or as complex as you wish – you can choose to follow one of the sample itineraries which we have created, you can modify one of these itineraries according to your requirements, or you can allow us to develop a whole new itinerary based on your preferences. We will use our expertise to create a bespoke touring holiday just for you, offering advice to ensure that everything runs smoothly. As we work with a large selection of hotels throughout Spain, you have the freedom to choose where you want to stay and how long for. We provide directions to each hotel that you are visiting during your touring holiday, as well as our own suggestions for sightseeing and local visits.

    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 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.

    Holidays by rail
    Rail travel to and within Spain is an increasingly popular option because it is a great way to see the countryside and to cover long distances in short times. You can travel all the way from the UK to Spain by taking the Eurostar to Paris, then continuing onwards by high-speed train via Catalonia or the Basque Country. It will be necessary to stay overnight in Barcelona or San Sebastian before travelling to your final destination, or you might choose to break your journey in Paris or another French town or city. High-speed AVE trains link Spain’s major cities, facilitating travel between regions.

    Holidays with a hire-car
    A hire-car is essential for many of our hotels with Spain, so is usually included in the price of your holiday. Some of our hotels offer transfers, but it may be more convenient to take a taxi in some city hotels. Hire-car is a very cost-effective and convenient means of getting from the airport to your hotel and back, and also allows you to explore the area during the course of your stay.
    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.

    Personal and professional service
    Spanish Expressions has been researched and created by our Spanish speaking professionals who know Spain and its culture extremely well. Your holiday booking will be created and looked after by our Spanish-speaking sales team. All aspects of your holiday are personalised, from the itinerary to your holiday confirmation and documentation which provides you with information that is relevant to you. From the point of initial contact with us, you will deal with the same sales consultant, who will handle all aspects of your booking and ticketing.
    We pride ourselves on our speed of response, accuracy of information, answering the brief you give us and providing you with the level of detail you demand. We approach your holiday in a way that offers you the arrangements you want, not to slot you in to pre-existing arrangements.

Your holiday is as individually fashioned and tailor-made as you want it to be.

    How we price your holiday
    All prices mentioned on our website and in our brochure are simply guides, as there are many variations that might affect the price including exchange rates, flight costs and special offers. To find out exact prices for the holiday that you are interested in, contact us for a tailor-made quotation.
    All our holiday arrangements have been designed to afford you maximum flexibility and freedom of choice. We include travel arrangements, whether it be flight, ferry or tunnel crossing or rail travel as well as many nights' hotel accommodation as you want, in as many different places.

    Our Price Guarantee
    We guarantee that once you have made a firm booking with a deposit payment, there will be no increases in the price of your holiday due to currency movements. If, for any reason, there have been changes in the price of the holiday you want, you will be advised at the time of booking.

    Full Financial Protection
    Full financial protection is offered when you book a holiday with us. Our air holidays are ATOL protected, and we are a member of the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Limited to protect non-flight packages. We are also members of ABTA and AITO (the Association of Independent Tour Operators), an organisation of some of Britain’s best specialist tour operators.

    Peace of mind
    Expressions Holidays offers you peace of mind from the moment you book until you come home. We make confirmed arrangements for you, with every element booked and nothing left to chance. In the unlikely event that you require assistance when you are abroad (unfortunately, unforeseen events can mean that sometimes clients have to return home), we are just a phone call away. We do not employ local representatives in Spain but all clients are issued with a 24-hour emergency contact number.
