Why It's a Deal In a recent Kayak search, we found a multicity fare (New York City to Madrid, Madrid to Barcelona, Barcelona to New York City) in late March for $692 (Iberia). For $207 more than airfare alone, this package covers the airfare, plus six nights' accommodations and all taxes and fees.
More More than a hundred hotel options are available in each city, and some options include breakfast. Extend your stay at Mardrid's Ventas for an additional $52 per person per night or at Barcelona's Diagonal Port for an additional $40 per person per night, based on double occupancy. Add round-trip airport transfers for an extra $84 per person in Madrid or for an extra $68 per person in Barcelona, based on two travelers.
