Travel packages with great discounts are available for flights to Madrid, including discounts from major hotels and low-cost car rentals. Madrid Barajas Airport is about 8 miles Northeast of Madrid and the Madrid underground system (APM) transports customers to four different terminals. The luxurious Madrid airport is designed with the busy traveler in mind. The Madrid Barajas Airport has a high-tech business center, VIP lounges, top-notch restaurants, banking services and a variety of shopping facilities. It is a major European hub offering air flights to Central and South America. Travelers love the airport but say their signs are confusing and sometimes the checking agent ignores the one carryon bag per customer. Modern metro service makes it a breeze for travelers on Madrid flights to get around town or you can grab a taxi or a low cost car rental.
Spaniards and repeat tourists will tell you there's no such a thing as bad weather in Madrid. In the winter months temperatures may dip below freezing, but don't expect a blizzard or snow storm – instead expect cool days that are crystal clear. End of April and all of May be prepared to have some rain dumped on you and things start seriously warming up in July. A couple of weeks in August gets a little toasty and many head for the coasts to grab a sea breeze or hang out on the beaches for some rest and relaxation.
Public transportation makes your trip enjoyable - the metro system with 216 lines connecting to every street in Madrid is a great option and is also inexpensive. Taxi service is offered 24/7 and is less expensive in Madrid than in the rest of Europe. There's one cable car that gives you a different view of Madrid from the air, but it doesn't run year round. The tourist transportation card is unique, allowing the buyer unlimited transportation service but the area covered is somewhat restricted. For those who want to kick back and relax, bus tours are an excellent option. The short distance train is great for families - it stops at Warner Bothers Park, Madrid's amusement park and the zoo aquarium. Cheap car rentals are available by the day, week or month.
