Portugal and Spain

Our popular Portugal and Spain combination holidays are back for 2023!  Enjoy the best of both worlds while vacationing in the golden picturesque region of the Algarve, Portugal and sunny Costa del Sol, Spain.  Whether this is your first visit to these regions of the Mediterranean or you have enjoyed their pleasures in the past, there is always something new to discover!  Learn more about these fabulous vacations here.

Portugal- The Algarve

Portugal’s Algarve province, with its magnetic Moorish appeal, has become a Mecca for snowbirds looking to escape the harsh realities of winter. It’s also one of Europe’s most picturesque and friendly holiday destinations, and is what most of us envision the Mediterranean to be: whitewashed villages cascading into the sea, gorgeous sandy beaches, cobblestoned streets lined with outdoor cafes, and vibrant markets full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Join us on one of our long-stay vacations this winter to experience the best Portugal has to offer!

Portugal- The Algarve 3 Week Stay at the Jupiter

In addition to our long-stay vacations, Travac is also offering fabulous 3 week stays in the Algarve this winter at the highly rated Jupiter Hotel.  This worry-free vacation includes return flights and airport transfers, accommodation, and two meals per day.  Join us to discover the best of the Algarve’s mild climate and cultural diversity- learn more here!

Spain- Costa del Sol

Travac is pleased to be offering exceptional new packages to the Costa del Sol region of Spain for 2023 that include perfectly located deluxe accommodations in Benalmádena and the services of a local guide while at your destination.  The unique and warm culture that defines this region alongside its remarkable landscapes, fascinating history, sunny beaches, and fabulous coastal villages make Costa del Sol an ideal winter getaway.  Learn more about our packages here!

New Covid-19 regulations effective April 2022

All travellers  (including our drivers and tour directors) must be fully vaccinated at least 2 weeks prior to departure date and must show and carry proof of vaccination and photo ID while on tour.

Presently all travellers and tour directors must wear a three-layer mask while on our private motorcoaches  (we do not regulate common carriers – we adhere to the local laws). Even if masking rules change, we strongly suggest for your own safety to continue to wear a mask onboard our private coaches, or in any crowded area.

If a traveller shows symptoms of Covid, the Travac Tours Director has the right to request a rapid negative test before resuming the tour.

It is each traveller’s individual responsibility to download the “ArriveCan App” or use the online system for your return into Canada. This must be shown to the Travac Tours Director before departure back to Canada.

These rules can change at any time, Travac office staff or your Travac Tours Director will keep you informed.

Travac follows Covid protocols by provincial, federal and/or country guidelines set by the destination you are travelling to. If these guidelines are not followed, you will not be able to participate in our tours. No refund or credit will be offered by Travac Tours.

It is also important to note that the motorcoaches are disinfected every day after use.

Travac strongly recommends travellers purchase cancellation/interruption and out of province medical insurance.
