Vacation to watch Madrid play Barca
I am Ken from Austria. Last winter, I took a break from work and flew to Madrid to watch Real Madrid play Barcelona in the El Classico. I had a dilemma in choosing the best airline to Madrid until a colleague suggested the best airline that offered cheapest ticket to Madrid. I bought a ticket to Madrid online after the referral and buying the ticket online was cheaper compared to visiting the travel agents who sold their ticket more expensive. “When purchasing a ticket to Madrid, it is advisable to purchase your ticket weeks prior to your departure, ticket are cheaper during this period”, he added. I traveled using Austrian Airlines who apart from being cheaper, also offered a 10% off their ticket for any ticket bought within the festive period. The travel experience and staying in Madrid was awesome. Madrid residents are very hospitable and friendly people. I came back rejuvenated and I am on course to achieve my goals and I would recommend any one to take a vacation in Madrid. The city is beautiful and charming.
