  • Self-drive touring holidays in Spain

    Self-drive touring holidays in Spain

    Discover the varied scenery and culture of Spain in the comfort of your own car, having travelled to the north of the country by ferry. It is also possible to cross the English Channel by ferry or Eurotunnel then travel south through France, stopping off along your way in as many destinations as you like. 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 self-drive 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. While it is most convenient to visit the northern regions with your own car, it is also possible to venture further south. 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.
    All the hotels that we feature in mainland Spain can be reached by car from the UK, so if you are looking for a self-drive holiday where you are based in one location then click here to find out more about the full range of destinations that we offer.

    Spanish Expressions organises tailor-made self-drive 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 self-drive 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 ferry
    It is possible to travel by ferry to northern Spain with your own car. Brittany Ferries offers weekly ferries from Plymouth to Santander (journey time around 20 hours), twice weekly ferries from Portsmouth to Bilbao (journey time around 24 hours) and twice weekly ferries from Portsmouth to Santander (journey time around 24 hours). LD Lines offers weekly ferries from Poole to Santander (journey time around 26 hours) and Poole to Gijon (journey time around 25 hours).
    It is also possible to travel by ferry or Eurotunnel to northern France, then to drive southwards towards your final destination in Spain. We offer a great range of hotels throughout France, many of which are ideal as overnight stops en route to Spain.

    Spanish Expressions is a tailor-made destination specialist holiday programme, created by Expressions Holidays with 30 years’ experience as an independent, specialist tour operator, selling hotel holidays of quality. We pride ourselves on interpreting your demands and requirements to provide you with the holiday that you want, ensuring a successful match between client and holiday.

    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. This might mean juggling dates, securing the last available room at a hotel or tailoring a complex itinerary involving numerous components. 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.
