MADRID – Now that everything is getting more expensive and you are confronted with price increases everywhere, it is important not to spend unnecessarily too much on your holiday. It can save a lot of money if you choose a cheap(er) holiday destination. 

Because you are often also tied to holiday periods, in which everyone goes on a trip, it is often difficult to get the best prices available. Especially in August, when accommodation prices logically rise in proportion to the increase in demand.

According to the travel website Holidu, the average for a holiday home in Spain is 180 euros per night. However, the prices vary considerably per region and which period you choose. Moreover, it usually makes a lot of difference whether you choose a location directly by the sea or one in the interior. 

This ranking of the cheapest holiday homes in Spain may help you make a slightly more economical choice. 

The Canary Islands and Extremadura 

In 2022, the Canary Islands and Extremadura will be at the top of the list of destinations with the cheapest rental accommodation. The price per night is €117 and €119 respectively. They are both regions with numerous nature reserves, beautiful coasts and in the case of Extremadura many places where you can swim in natural waters, such as lakes and rivers. They are ideal destinations for families looking for affordable holidays.

If you are a beach lover, but can’t find good deals on airfare to the Canary archipelago, then you have other options below the average price close to several coasts of the Spanish mainland. A night on the coast of Almería costs about €138; on the coast of Galicia, €140; on the Costa Cálida (Murcia) €145 and the Costa Verde (Asturias) €155. 

If you don’t necessarily have to sit on the beach, you’re in luck. Because in addition to Extremadura, there are many other cheap destinations in the interior such as Castilla y León (€124), La Rioja (€127), Castilla la Mancha (€131), Navarra (€131) or Aragon (€136), among others.
