Peak season

Madrid is a go-to place for most of the year thanks to its warm weather. July and August are the busiest times and also the hardest for finding cheap flights to Madrid.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

A frequent, reliable and cheap option is to jump on the Expres Aeropuerto. It’s a bus which runs very regularly from the arrival Terminals at the airport for a low cost. However, it only makes 2 or 3 stops during its journey so you’ll have to then jump on the metro to get to your final destination. If you’re not carrying lots of luggage then this might not be a problem but if you have a couple of suitcases then this can be quite bothersome after your flights to Madrid.

A much easier method, although more expensive, is to get the metro directly from the airport to the centre of the city. Again you might need to transfer once or twice depending on where you are needing to end up but it’s a much faster and convenient way to travel. Lastly, you can get a taxi from outside of the airport although this will be a lot more money than the bus or metro. If you have a few friends travelling with you though then you can split the fare and make this more reasonable.
