Flights can be very cheap if you are flexible about your travelling day and book in advance. We have no fixed 'turnaround' day for the apartments. For example, an Easyjet flight on the Gatwick/Almeria route can cost as little as £17.99 one way excluding taxes.

ALMERIA AIRPORT is a short 40-50 minute drive from the apartments along the E15 dual carriageway.

MURCIA AIRPORT (San Javier) is a transformed journey since the opening of a toll road from Cartegena right into Vera Playa. This costs E11,50, payable at Cartegena, but the journey is now possible in less than 1 hour. You can still use the old dual carriageway up round Murcia City and then the E15 into Vera, but this takes just over 2 hours.
