Insure your holiday to Spain

As far as holiday destinations go, you can hardly get any better than Spain. In fact, Spain is one of the most popular holiday locations in the world.

According to UK Government statistics, Spain is visited by just under 12 million Brits every year. But why do so many people flock to Spain?

Well, the main reason is probably the weather. Spain has a dry, warm climate, meaning there are plenty of opportunities for sunbathing and relaxing by the side of the pool.

By itself, that’s enough to bring in millions of Brits a year but that’s certainly not all Spain has going for it.

For one thing, holidays in Spain are relatively cheap. Not just the flights and accommodation, but with goods like groceries and toiletries. The Post Office discovered that a typical basket of goods in Spain costs around £36, whereas a similar basket from Egypt would set you back by around £80.

A trip to Spain can also save you money when it comes to insuring your holiday. Travel insurance for trips to Spain can be picked up from under £6 for single trip cover and just £29 for annual cover.

Another big draw for tourists is Spanish cuisine. From omelette to tapas, Spanish food is very tasty and quite healthy too, with a wide range of fresh ingredients. Due to the country’s maritime roots, seafood plays a very large part in Spanish food, particularly in dishes like paella.

And then, of course, there are the Spanish people, who are warm, friendly and welcoming to visitors. The Spanish are a vibrant and expressive people with a rich cultural history.

If you’re into culture and history, Spain has plenty for you to see. The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is a spectacular building, designed by American architect Frank Gehry. Inside the museum, you can find a huge range of works by Spanish and international artists.

Seville Cathedral, for which building began in the 15th century, is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world and is sure to take your breath away. It also serves as the burial site of Christopher Columbus, the explorer who helped to pioneer European colonisation of the Americas.
