Speaking Spanish when traveling

Studying Spanish, means the possibility of being able to communicate with more than 550 million persons people, since it’s the official language of 25 countries.


Learning a language to communicate with the native speakers is fun and useful. Whether you travel to Spain with friends for a few days or for business, there’s nothing better than saying a few words in Spanish.


We’ll provide you with some tips to use in your trips:

  • Greetings and farewells

To greet when you enter somewhere or meet someone would be «¡Hola!» and «¡Adiós!» if we want to say goodbye.


To greet in a more general way we can use: «¡Buenos días!”, «¡Buenas tardes!», «¡Buenas noches!»

  • Thanks and apologies

Spanish expressions that foreigners can use to thank and apologize are: «¡Muchas gracias!» and the answer would be: «De nada.»


To be polite when asking for anything, use the word «por favor» and, if you use when you need any kind of help, no one can tell you no.


When you need to pass by, but there’s someone who is in the middle of your way, or if you want that someone helps you and you don’t know how to make them pay attention to you,  «Perdón» is the keyword to solve any of these situations.

  • Useful expressions, verbs and words on the plane or airport

Let’s look at some travel vocabulary on the plane and useful Spanish phrases when traveling:


– «Facturar el equipaje» is checking in your baggage into the airplane.

– «Aterrizar» refers to the landing of the airplane in our destination.


At each airport, you’ll find an information panel announcing flights that are going to arrive or have already arrived and those that are going to leave soon: «Vuelos de salida/Vuelos de llegada».


«Tarjeta de embarque» is the boarding card you get to enter the plane.
