There’s no movie like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which taps into the essence of Spain. We are taken on a fun trip with the three amigos exploring the food, music, dance and culture of Spain just as well. 

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara gave us major travel goals indeed! Who hasn’t dreamt of a fun and exciting trip to Spain with their best friends? (All thanks to Zoya Akhtar!) But unfortunately, not all of us are rich stock brokers or have successful family businesses since a trip to Spain from India can be really heavy on our pocket. Sometimes it all seems like an impossible dream to groove on those jolly Spanish beats with your gang. What to do then?

How much does a spain trip cost from India?

We have just the solution to manage your Spain trip cost from India on a budget! 

Airfares for a budget Spain trip cost

There are no direct flights from India to Spain. There’s usually atleast one stop in between. Spain is generally a year-round vacation spot for tourists but welcomes most travellers during summer months or around holidays like Easter, Christmas, the Tomatina festival, etc. 

So, visiting Spain would not be ideal during the holiday season if you are planning the trip on a budget. The Spain trip cost is the least during the months of late January, early February and fall months of October. Consider booking the tickets three months in advance for affordable prices.

Plan the trip during off-season

Planning trips during off-season has its own advantages. With lesser tourists and quieter places, one can explore a place more freely without any long queues and over-tourism. Spain trip cost from India can also be managed well during off-season due to affordable prices of travel as well as accommodation. The average cost of air tickets may range approximately from INR 25,000 during off-season to more than INR 50,000 during peak season.


The best way to stay in Spain on a tight budget is to go for hostels. There are many hostel options in Barcelona and Madrid one can look into. Apart from this, many mid-range hotels are also available which are not too harsh on the pocket. A hostel can cost around INR 2000-5000 while a mid-range hotel may vary between INR 6000-14000 per night.
