The market for vacation rentals is booming in Spain, so there is a wide selection of accommodations to choose from – no matter the price range. A vacation rental is a great choice for those on a budget, especially large groups or families.
Here’s how to find your Spain vacation rental on a budget:
Use an accommodation comparison site: Take advantage of comparison sites that find the best deals for you. Avoid trawling through endless accommodation sites – save time, money, and effort when booking with Rentalo.
Visit in the off-peak season: If you want to keep costs low, consider visiting Spain during the off-peak season. Vacation rental prices are typically lower when there isn’t as much demand. The off-peak season runs from November to February. However, if you want a mix of sunshine and low prices, March to May are good times to visit.
Book in advance: If you’re visiting Spain on a budget, the best way to get a good deal is by booking in advance. Book at least 90 days in advance to find the best prices for Spain vacation rentals.
Consider the location: A lot of factors influence the price of a vacation rental, a primary one being location. The most popular places for vacation rentals (Barcelona, Madrid, Ibiza, and more) will be pricier than less visited destinations. Places like Cadiz, Murcia, La Coruna, and Las Palmas offer incredible food, history, architecture, and culture for a more affordable price.
Book a vacation rental with a kitchen: Most vacation rentals will come with a kitchen or kitchenette. If you want to save money on food by cooking at home, we recommend prioritizing finding a rental with a good kitchen that you’ll want to cook in. Having a place to prepare a picnic is handy when it comes to taking day trips, too.
Read reviews: Take time to read the reviews and ratings of past guests. Look out for phrases like ‘good value for money’ to spot a great deal.
Rentalo's pick of the best places to stay
There are vacation rentals located all across Spain. No matter your ideal destination, you’ll find an apartment, house, or villa to call your own for a few days. However, there are certain locations that are particularly popular for vacation rentals.
Popular vacation rental locations include:
Spain is beautifully diverse, with 17 regions to explore. From the sunny coastline of Andalusia to the wine haven of La Rioja, there’s so much to discover. There are few countries that tick as many boxes as Spain, where you can get lost in World Heritage Cities, try incredible cuisine, relax on sun-drenched beaches, experience multi-faceted cultures, and meander through world-class art galleries.
Spain is an eclectic mix of culture, history, and food. But where you stay will largely determine what kind of activities you do, whether that’s exploring a Spanish city’s winding cobblestone streets, relaxing by the Mediterranean Sea, or taking long walks through the rolling hills of the countryside. And when you stay in a Rentalo vacation rental, you’ll be well-positioned to explore the surrounding area easily. Our rentals are within easy reach of beaches, hiking trails, historical sights, and notable attractions – whether by foot or rental car.
For those days when you simply want to relax, unwind, and enjoy the vacation rental you’ve booked, here’s what you can do:
Try your hand at the local cuisine: One of the benefits of booking a vacation rental is having access to a kitchen. Spain has one of the world’s most delicious cuisines, characterized by hearty dishes packed with flavor. Treat your loved ones to a feast of home-cooked paella and tapas, complete with a jug of fruity sangria.
Relax and unwind: While Spain is full of beautiful things to see and exciting experiences, sometimes the best part of vacation is switching off. Make the most of the amenities at your vacation rental, whether that’s a terrace, an outdoor pool, a hot tub, or a yard.
Make the most of the amenities: Vacation rentals typically come with an array of amenities and sources of entertainment. You’ll likely find board games and card games – the perfect way to spend quality time with friends and family. Most rentals will also come equipped with a TV with streaming services for cozy movie nights in.
The Sagrada Família is a unique piece of architecture, designed by Antoni Gaudí. It’s a Roman Catholic Church like no other, drawing on modernism, Gothic, and Art Nouveau architectural elements. The church is famously still under construction and is the largest unfinished church in the world.
How to visit the Sagrada Família
Given its central location, getting to the Sagrada Família is simple. There’s a metro next to the church, and it’s also served by several bus lines. Any hop-on-hop-off tour will also go to the church. We recommend purchasing your entrance tickets in advance to avoid lines, especially on the weekend.
The Alhambra and Generalife Gardens
Explore the finest Islamic architecture in Europe with a visit to Granada’s Alhambra. Backed by the Sierra Nevada peaks, the setting is stunning. The fortified palace displays classic Moorish architecture, and the Generalife Gardens, which started being built in the 8th century, are beautiful to explore.
How to Visit the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens
There are multiple ways to get to the Alhambra. You can walk from the city center in around 20-to-30 minutes. However, this is an uphill walk, and there is a lot of walking to do when you get to the Alhambra. You can also park your rental car in the Alhambra parking lot – it costs 2.82 euros per hour. Alternatively, you can jump on a quick and cheap local bus. You can book tickets in advance or when you get there, but booking in advance is always best to avoid long lines. Top tip: entrance to the Alhambra is free on a Sunday.
The Royal Palace
Madrid’s Royal Palace holds the accolade of the largest palace in Europe. A vast estate of lush grounds and grandiose rooms that could easily take up a whole day.
How to visit the Royal Palace
The palace is spread across six floors and large grounds, so be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes during your visit. Getting to the Palace is easy – it’s located in the city center, within walking distance of most of Madrid’s attractions. You can get your tickets on the day, but the line might be long.
