  • More about Ibiza

Preparing some aspects of your trip beforehand offers advantages which will prevent unexpected events and, in short, will ensure a satisfactory holiday. Although we are aware that everyone travels in their own way, we offer some general advice that will help prevent unexpected, unpleasant events on your holiday.


Information about Ibiza

       If this is your first visit to Ibiza, we recommend you to find out something about it to be quite sure about what it offers, what you can see and, in short, what you are likely to find during your stay. Nowadays sources of information are almost infinite, especially on the Internet. We have prepared a section in which we compile information about Ibiza that we hope will be of interest. Once you are on the island, you can go to any of the many tourist information offices where you will be given advice during your stay.

Whenever you are travelling, it is always a good idea to tell somebody about your route, where you are going to be staying and how to contact you in case of necessity.


Travel documents

       If you are travelling to Ibiza from a country in the European Union, your national ID card will be sufficient. Check that it is still valid. People from other countries will need to travel with a passport.

We recommend you to make a note of information such as your passport number, your airline ticket identifier, the numbers of your travellers’ cheques (if relevant), your credit card number and bank account number (in case you need to transfer money) and keep it separately from your documentation. In the case of an emergency, this information will help you make a report, renew or cancel in the case of loss or theft. You could also make a note of all this information in an e-mail and send it to yourself so that you can access it from anywhere with Internet.


Long flights

       If your flight to Ibiza is going to be a long one, you should take into account some considerations for your safety. Factors such as the reduction of oxygen in the cabin or prolonged immobility can cause circulatory as well as respiratory problems. Although the possibility from suffering from this is minimal unless you are at risk, we recommend doing some exercise at frequent intervals to stimulate your circulation. It is also a good idea to wear loose, comfortable clothing. Try to avoid carbonated drinks. The typical ear problems during a flight can be avoided by chewing gum.

If your trip involves a change of time zone from your country of origin, you can try and prevent jetlag as much as possible by sleeping during the flight and drinking a large amount of liquid before and during the journey. There are also medications available to help reduce its effects.

As far as children are concerned, it is not recommended that they travel under the age of 7 days and great care should always be taken that they are correctly hydrated.

In the Links section, you can access the pages of the airline companies that fly to Ibiza.


Travelling by boat

An alternative to flying is to come to Ibiza by boat. At present, there are ferries to the island from Barcelona, Denia (Alicante) and Valencia. In theLinks section, you can access the pages of the shipping companies that offer this service.


Money

We recommend you to make a realistic budget for the money that you think you will need during your stay. As you know, the official currency in Ibiza is the euro, however it is not complicated to exchange any currency for euros once you are in Ibiza. Some shops will even allow you to exchange currency without charging a commission.


Luggage

To facilitate returning luggage in the case of loss by an airline company, we recommend identifying your luggage with a label indicating your name, address or means of contact.

Due to its situation in the Mediterranean, Ibiza has a relatively mild climate all year round. The island enjoys an average of 6 hours of sun a day in the winter and more than 10 in the summer. The average yearly humidity is around 70%.

If you intend to come to Ibiza in the summer, prepare thin clothes, short sleeve T-shirts, shorts, etc. In case the temperatures drop (particularly in May, September and October), we recommend you bring a jacket or jersey. Bring a raincoat with you just in case you are surprised by a rainy day. The average temperature in the summer is between 20 and 34°C maximum and between 15 and 19°C minimum

If, however, you are going to visit Ibiza in the winter, you will generally find a fairly mild, pleasant temperature. The sun usually shines at this time of the year, although the drop in temperatures is notable in comparison with the summer.  The average temperature during the winter is between 20 and 25°C maximum and 7 and 15°C minimum.

How to get around in Ibiza

Despite the fact that Ibiza is not very large (45 km long by 25 km wide) if you want to make the most of your stay, it is a good idea to rent a car to get around the island, as public transport will not take you to many of the interesting places that you will probably want to visit. In the links section, there are some car rental companies so that you can sort out a vehicle.
