All water in Europe is safe to drink but the taste may not be what you are used to. Most sites in Spain use desalinated water which can still taste salty. Drinking water is available from special drinking taps around the site.
Bottled water is not usually expensive if bought in 10 litre containers or multipacks. It can be purchased in supermarkets.
Holiday prices are much lower outside the peak period. The weather can be just as good, the beaches less crowded and sites which are buzzing in high summer can be perfect for a quiet holiday in May, June or September.
During the off-peak season there are usually fewer activities and entertainments and site owners may not open all facilities. Swimming pools usually open early in the season, but this is at the site owner’s discretion.
Every tourist must pay a tourist tax on the day of departure. This is usually around €1 per adult, per day (€0.50 for 12-18 year olds, under 12s free).
These details were published in July 2014. The prices and conditions supersede all previous editions, and may be superseded by later editions.
