  • What Documentation do I need to Travel to Spain?
    Travelers from America, Canada, and the Schengen Area of Europe do not need to apply for a visa for Spain for a period of less than three months. However, all travelers need to own a valid passport, and Schengen laws require that passports are valid for six months from your date of entry. Travelers from other countries may need to apply for a visa beforehand - please see the Spanish Ministry of the Interior website for more detail."
  • Do I need Travel Insurance if Traveling to Spain?
    It’s important to have travel insurance in Spain, just like any other country, in case of medical accident or the possible loss of any valuable items such as cameras. Only private insurance is available in Spain, so it is recommended that you plan this in your home country before arriving.
  • Is it Dangerous for my Health to Visit Spain?
    There aren’t any particular risks for your health traveling to Spain that travelers need to be aware of. It’s good to have up-to-date vaccinations for tetanus and hepatitis, as these are potential issues anywhere in the world. Most health problems for tourists are a result of not planning correctly for the heat of summer, where it’s possible to get dangerously dehydrated or suffer from sunstroke.
  • How do you pay in Spain?
    The currency in Spain is the euro. It’s possible to change currencies at banks here, but most guides suggest that you utilise the local ATMs. These are plentiful in the more populated areas of Ibiza, and accept Mastercard, VISA, and most other major credit cards. However, it’s probably best to draw enough cash to spend before venturing into the more rural areas. It’s possible to pay directly with a credit card at some restaurants. Traveler’s cheques are still in use, but as queues at banks can be quite long it’s not the most convenient choice. If you take traveler’s cheques, make sure to keep them separate from your other financial assets in case your main credit cards are lost or stolen.
  • What are the Timezones in Spain?
    The timezone in Spain is Central Europe Time Zone. This is also represented as UTC+01:00, meaning that it is one hour ahead of the Universal Coordinated Time.
  • What Language is spoken in Spain?

  • What to Put in my Luggage when Traveling to Spain?
    If you’re traveling in summer, don’t forget sunscreen and a hat, as well as insect spray and good walking shoes if you intend to explore on foot. It’s a good idea to travel with an updated medical kit, including simple medications such as rehydration salts, painkillers, plasters and antibacterial gel in case of simple scratches. You can also ask your doctor to prescribe a broad-spectrum antibiotic in case of a sudden infection.
