How to travel on the cheap in Spain

The following was posted on, and is worth reposting.

Had a great holiday recently for a fraction of the normal price. There are plenty of ex pats now living in Spain who regularly let out their apartments and with flights being so cheap I saved a fortune. I found the apartment I stayed in, which was fantastic, at the following internet address:-

The Apartment cost me just 200 per week and there was four of us! The flights from the UK were just 300 given the flew out late at night. So it was a holiday for 4 people costing a total of 500.
Often the apartments you rent are somebodys home and as such they are really well looked after, especially as many of the people who own them are now retired. Of course you are expected to look after them and a small breakages deposit was required. In any event I got my deposit of 50 back straight away after the holiday.
We stayed in Benalmadena which was fantastic, it has a great beach, excellent marina and apartments themselves had a pool with water slides. Benalmadena is situated on the Costa del Sol and lies between Torremolinos and Fuengirola, approximately 15 minutes from Malaga airport which was ideally located for travelling further afield to places such as Granada and Seville. It is made up of three different areas, Benalmadena Costa, Arroyo de la Miel and Benalmadena Pueblo.

The complex was surrounded by sub-tropical gardens and apparantly had one of the largest private swimming pools in Europe. A poolside bar/restaurant is also available during the summer season.

I would also recommend for flights easyjet:-

I can honestly say that given the amount spent we had a great time and to be honest it put much more expensive holidays we have been on in the past to shame – I won’t be going back to a travel agent again!
