The details on this page were accurate when this post was last updated (see time-stamps above). Prices and availability can and will change, given enough time. This page contains links to companies that may compensate this site when you click on their link and purchase travel from their website.
Delta and SkyTeam partners have round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) or San Antonio (SAT) to Madrid (MAD) or starting at $423 with a connection. Flights December to March. No Holidays. 7-day minimum stay required.
Note: We’re also seeing Barcelona (BCN) on sale, but the routes have either multiple connections or long layover times, so we won’t be covering it on this blog. It may be easier to just book a flight into Madrid (MAD) and then buy a separate ticket onward.
- Example Dates: (Priceline / Travelocity) Dec 03 – Dec 10 / Blackout: Dec 11 – Jan 7 / Jan 14 – Jan 21 / Jan 21 – Jan 28 / Feb 04 – Feb 11 / Feb 11 – Feb 18 / Feb 18 – Feb 25 / Mar 04 – Mar 11 / Other dates: Try Saturday flights.
- Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on BookingBuddy to see if any other airline or website is offering a better deal. Airlines tend to match or offer competitive fares when competitors go on sale.
- If you want to see other deals that are still bookable you should check out the “Bookable Deals” page on our site. It filters out deals that have expired, or have low availability.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Travelocity, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancellation” next to the button to purchase the ticket.
Most airlines offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
