A guide on how to design the perfect Madeira holiday

Want to book the perfect holiday to Madeira but don’t know where to start? Here is a simple guide on preparing the perfect Madeira holiday.

Find your flight

The first step of holiday planning is deciding when to go on holiday. Madeira is a good destination all year around. However, depending on the activities you want to take part in, you might have to consider seasonal changes in the climate.

Once you and your travel buddies have decided on the perfect moment to go on holiday, you can book your flights. It is advised to check accommodation availabilities in advance.

Find your accommodation

Depending on your preferred type of holiday, you can choose between various types of accommodation. We suggest you stay in a holiday house or apartment. This will mean you have more independence regarding when you eat and which activities you take part in.

However, if you would rather stay in a crowded hotel with average buffet food and hang out with a bunch of strangers, that’s fine too.

Rent a car

The best way to travel on Madeira is by car. Therefore, we suggest you rent a car. This will give you the freedom of going anywhere whenever. After you land, you can simply pick up your car at the airport and the drive off to wherever you are staying. As simple as that.

Plan your activities

Finally, based on personal preferences, you can choose what type of activity you would want to take part in. There are a wide range of things to do on the island. No matter whether you are looking for an adrenaline rush or would rather take a nice and relaxing walk, there is something for everyone.
