Getting to the Madrid, Spain from the RGV is currently priced as low as $667, just in time for Christmas! I have provided a sample fare from Google Flights for travel in December. You can see all the options I found here.
- Route: RGV (McAllen, Harlingen, Brownsville) – Madrid, Spain
- Airlines: American/Iberia, United
- Fare Type: Basic Economy
- Dates: 12/12/2019 – 12/24/2019
- Prices: $667 – $683
- Need Passport?: Yes (US and Mexican Passports enter without visa restrictions)
- Need Visa?: No
The cheapest and most reasonable option is to fly from McAllen to Madrid on American Airlines. The way to get the $667 fare is to buy the ticket through Iberia’s website (iberia.com). Just put the departure airport as McAllen (MFE) and Madrid (MAD), and the dates 12/12 to 12/24. Flying American will get you back to the Valley on the 24th, just in time to spend Christmas with the family.
Check out my post here on using Google Flights to see what dates work best for you. For about ~$80 to $100 more, you can shorten the trip to just one week, coming out to $718.
This is a Basic Economy transatlantic fare, which means there are restrictions on how many bags you can take, selecting seats, and making changes. Here is American’s Basic Economy restrictions and United’s Basic Economy restrictions.
There is so much to do in Madrid, from the amazing eateries all over the city, to historic landmarks like the Royal Palace, the beautiful cathedral across from the palace, and the Museo Nacional del Prado.
Also take time to look around at the unique colors and architecture of this very historic city!
