Hola! Before you go to Spain for your internship, you might be wondering what you need to know before you leave! You’ve come to the right place to get the best advice before you leave! 

Pack your suitcase and don’t forget your sun cream and books 

In winter, I strongly recommend that you bring warm clothes, gloves and your umbrella with temperatures averaging between 8°C and 15°C. As you can imagine, in summer, sun cream and a hat are a must with temperatures that can exceed 30°C. Don’t forget your book either, as Spanish life is very different from French life and “farniente” will be part of your daily routine. You will have time to relax at the beach or in the green spaces of this country! 

Transport in Spain 

If you choose to travel to a major Spanish city, you can easily get around by public transport, either by metro, train or bus. The metro can be used all night, but only in certain cities and on certain dates. I advise you to check the timetable in advance. You can also travel by taxi, but make sure you get into an authorised taxi with identification. When you get into the taxi, make sure that you can pay by card. Extra charges may apply, especially at night. You can also travel around the country by high-speed train or by plane, as Spain has airports in all its main cities. 

The advantages of the tourist pass and the tourist card

As you are planning to spend several days/weeks in Spain, I strongly recommend that you take out a tourist pass. The pass will allow you to travel without limits on the different means of public transport at a low price. Depending on what you want to do and discover once you’re there, you can opt for the tourist card which will give you discounts on transport but also access to certain places such as certain museums, shows, restaurants etc… Freedom and discovery are yours!
