TUI have both regular scheduled and charter flights from Scotland, both of which can either be year round or seasonal, so you'll need to think about where you're flying to, the holidays might only be available on certain dates to selected destinations.

Although they don't offer package holidays as such, you might be able to grab a bargain when booking holidays with Ryanair flights from Scotland, but do always be aware of the financial protection that's provided by your tour operator or travel agent, especially since the Coronavirus pandemic. We always recommend booking an ATOL or ABTA protected package.
Holiday Types From Scotland To Spain
The best type of holiday is the one you spend with your family. There's nothing like spending quality time with the kids but it's also important they have plenty to see and do, giving you a little break yourself. From multi-age children's clubs to easy access to a waterpark or splash park, you can ensure you and your family have the best time while you're in Spain. Self catering can be ideal if you're looking for a cheap holiday within your budget, and that still means cooking together too.
Villas with swimming pools give you the privacy and space you need with the family, whether it's a small family or a big one. Some tour operators from Scotland will even include a hire car within the price of your holiday so you've got even greater freedom to head out and explore the destination with the family, whether that's travelling to the local market to pick up some fresh Spanish produce, or heading to the nearest beach for a fun-filled day out.
A holiday doesn't have to involve chilling by the pool. City breaks can bring just as much joy, excitement and recovery as a beach holiday can. Simply being able to gawp at impressive architecture, iconic paintings, or relax with some Spanish tapas as you watch the world go by, can be just as relaxing. Try destinations like Madrid or Barcelona to start, before moving on to some of the country's hidden gems, like Bilbao, Seville or Santander.
