Finding the right flights from Madrid can be as simple as doing a search at Orbitz.com. The search engine at the Orbtiz.com site combs through current flight schedules to show comparative costs, as well as departure and arrival times, layovers and other issues that make certain flight options more attractive than others.

For travelers who wish to avoid parking, Orbitz.com can help find special offers on ground transportation to and from Madrid-Barajas Airport. It takes approximately 30 minutes to get there from downtown by car. A credentialed taxi service will charge anywhere from €25 to €30 for the ride, but oftentimes there are taxi drivers inside the terminals offering cheaper rides who do not have the same credentials as those who have signed a contract with the airport. Passengers can also opt for a €2 train ride or take the bus for a similar fee.
There's no need to leave the airport to find an excellent selection of restaurants, counter service diners or bars. Orbitz.com can offer travelers deals on food and air packages, though they might not be dining in-house. The convenience of dining at the airport while waiting for flights from Madrid may be worth the cost, but passengers should expect the cost to be relatively more expensive than similar restaurants found in the city center.
Searching for bargain flights to Tenerife can be challenging when navigating the numerous airlines' websites, but Orbitz.com makes it easy. It compares all rates simultaneously, so it saves you time and money. Tenerife is served by two airports, Tenerife North Airport which is located about 11 kilometers west of the capital, and Tenerife South Airport which is about 37 kilometers south of the capital. Both airports host numerous airlines, including Air Berlin, Condor, Ryanair, Luxair, Iberia, and many more.
Transportation to your hotel or destination from both airports includes public transportation, rental, and taxis. Taxis wait outside the terminals, and the rates are metered and begin at €3.05.

Car rentals are available at the airports from Avis, Cicar, Europcar, Auto Reisen, Gold Car, and Hertz. Their rates vary by company and type of vehicle you choose, but you can prearrange your rental on Orbitz.com so there are no unexpected fees when you arrive.
