If you’ve been craving some authentic patatas bravas or a well-made tinto de verano, now may be a great time to plan a visit to Spain for the fall and first half of 2022, thanks to some very favorable ticket prices. Our friends at Thrifty Traveler let us know about some stellar flight deals on flights to Spain, beginning this September and lasting all the way until May 2022.

Take note, most fares are basic economy which includes free carry-on but no seat assignment. Delta and United Basic Economy fares booked with travel through Dec. 31, 2021, are eligible for free changes and cancelation for a voucher. Other Basic Economy fares no longer offer these benefits. Upgrade to Main Cabin fares to get free changes and cancelation for a voucher.

As of June 28, Spain has welcomed back American tourists — with no proof of vaccination or negative test results required. It’s no wonder Spain has been one of the top European countries to visit this summer.
