Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Malaga, meet your tour manager at the airport, and board our coach for the transfer into the Andalusian hills to your hotel.

Day 2

On today's included excursion you'll journey to Seville, the home of flamenco and the magical setting for Bizet's Carmen. Wander the narrow streets of the atmospheric Old Quarter, relax in the beautiful Plaza de Espana with its fountains, and visit the famous Plaza de Toros bullring.The city's shops will be open for last-minute festive shopping should you need to find a final gift before you return to the hotel to begin your celebrations.

Day 3

Spend Christmas Day celebrating at your hotel, perhaps making use of the indoor swimming pool and spa (payable locally) before you sit down for a three-course Christmas lunch with drinks.

Day 4

Boxing Day's included visit takes us to Granada. Your first stop will be the spectacular Alhambra Palace, where you'll have time to marvel at the beautiful tiled mosaics, intricate towers and minarets, and world-renowned formal gardens. You'll then have the afternoon to explore the rest of the city, which sits beneath the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains.

Day 5

Relax on your final day at the hotel, or join our optional excursion to Cordoba, the former Roman and Moorish capital of Spain. Here you'll discover the breathtaking Mezquita, the vast Mosque into which the Christian cathedral has been incorporated, and which reflects Cordoba's position as the greatest Moorish city in Europe.Later, enjoy a last dinner at the hotel.

Day 6

Say goodbye to your hotel and your hosts, and transfer back to the airport to board your flight home. Back to top

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

European Christmas closing times

Shops in Europe will generally be closed from early afternoon on Christmas Eve until 27th December.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Alhambra excursion information

The Board of Trustees of the Alhambra and Generalife has changed its policy regarding entry tickets to the Alhambra and Gardens. This new policy has come into effect for all visits to the Alhambra as of 1st March 2020. Passengers will need to supply their passport details 10 weeks prior to their departure date in order to secure their ticket. Valid Photo ID must also be taken with you on the day. Please note that, due to the uneven ground and steps at the Alhambra Palace in Granada, this included excursion may not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties or for wheelchair users.

Travelling to Europe

Rules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though. Names - It is very important that all passenger names are exactly as per your passport although we do not require middle names. Passport - Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be: Less than 10 years old on the day you return home (please check the "date of issue") and valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home (please check the "expiry date"). These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay. Visa - If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total. European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS) - Commencing in 2023, all citizens of the United Kingdom will require a ETIAS electronic form completed prior to their arrival into the EU and Schengen member countries. The cost for this travel authorisation will be €7.00 per person with exceptions for under 18’s and over 70’s. The latest information and further details can be found at www.etias.com. Border Control - At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required. Healthcare Cover - You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information. You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
