Oh, Madrid – it’s been far too long.
How we’ve missed those long nights with tapas, vino and walks around this architectural gem of a city, and the long days shopping through the boutiques, mercados and wide avenues.
Now that travel is coming back, so too are ultra low fares. Right now, you can bag a trip to Madrid from a variety of US cities for under $300 round trip. That’s pretty incredible, considering going to someplace like Texas would cost you more right now.
Here’s how to fly to Madrid for under $300 round trip. On major airlines too!
Madrid Flight Deals
American, Delta, United and a bunch of airlines are offering super low fares to Madrid.
Spain remains open to vaccinated Americans and the process is all pretty easy. With smaller crowds than usual, iconic museums and restaurants are easier to access too. Here’s our unmissable GSTP guide to Madrid.
These tickets are “basic economy”, which means you won’t get to bring a bag or choose a seat before travel, but since they’re on major airlines, you still get the food and drinks you’d expect, as well as entertainment and miles for flying.
Dates You Can Travel
These deals start in October and minus a few blackouts around December holidays and April breaks, they’re available almost any day between now and May 2022.
Unlike many of the cheapest deals, these don’t have a minimum stay. This is a huge “win”, because it makes things like a long weekend in Madrid possible, rather than needing to stay an entire week.
How To Book These Flights
These flights can be booked directly with the airlines. In most cases, you can take your pick between a variety of major airlines. Under $300 to Europe is incredible, and it’s been almost two years since airlines started competing on price.
