As well as this advice, check out our travel advice for Spain
Every summer, Spain hosts a number of different festivals, such as BBK Live, Madrid Pride, Mad Cool and FIB. The vast majority of British tourists don’t have any problems at these events, but it’s best to be aware of a few things for when you go.
Before you go
- remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), but also take out travel insurance even if you’re only going for one night. It could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties. Make sure you carry the contact number and policy number with you and leave a copy of your policy with someone at home
- take 2 photocopies of your passport. Leave one at home and take the other with you
- tell family or friends where you’ll be staying
- fill in the last page of your passport with your emergency contacts
