ibiza-2Visiting Madrid is an incredible cultural experience but if you want to taste the party scene, you need to get to Ibiza . The famous party island is not a cheap destination though but with careful planning at least you can save on transport and accommodation, allowing for more money to spend in the clubs.

Direct flight

Both Madrid and Ibiza are served by airports. During the summer there are plenty of low-cost carriers serving the island (and numerous charter flights available, as well).The flight takes 1h 10 min.

Several budget airlines that fly to Ibiza start from Madrid, although airlines fly more frequently from Barcelona to Ibiza. The following carriers offer direct flights between Madrid and Ibiza: EasyJet, Air Europa, Vueling Airlines and Iberia.

EasyJet offers daily flights between the two cities but it’s important be flexible on dates and check the prices often. For example, if you book your RT ticket one month in advance, expect to pay at least €67.47 per person. On the other hand, booking two months in advance means you’ll be paying more (from €92.97 per person, RT).

As for the regular carriers, prices start at €117 per person, RT (on Air Europa) if you book a month in advance and up to €133 per person RT if you book two months in advance.

Contrary to popular belief, this route (Madrid to Ibiza) doesn’t get cheaper if you book in advance, especially when we are talking about July and August (peak season).
