Moving to Madrid is definitely a great choice. One of the most important decisions you have to make during this movement is deciding where and how you want to live.

The room price in a shared apartment in Madrid currently ranges from € 450 to € 900 per month, mostly depending on the area you want to live in and the style of the apartment.

We recommend that you start your search online before going to Madrid. This is because student accommodation in Madrid is basically in high demand at any time of the year. However, this is especially true from August to February as many international students or young professionals moving to Madrid rent their rooms online before arriving in the city. It results in most of the best offers being booked and received too early.

When searching online, it is recommended to rent a room through a trusted rental agent or secure housing on the Madrid search platform – they usually charge a commission for up to a month. Stay one step ahead for a list of popular rental agencies as well as secure housing search platforms offering student rooms and student apartments for rent in Madrid.

How to get Abono Transportation-Metro Card

Abono-Transportation card Madrid. Erasmus Madrid


These are the documents you need to get your transportation monthly card: Aplication form (

  • A standard passport sized photo (which you can get at the photo booths in most metro stations, Sol Metro)
  • EU ID, residence ID or passport (photo copy)

Once you have prepared these three things, you have two options to process your abono.


  • The first option is the easiest if you don’t speak the language–you can make an online request, you’ll be asked to upload all three required files. Once they process your request, your card will be sent to your address in less than 20 days.
  • The second option is a bit faster–make an appointment on the internet or by calling 012 (press 4; calling hours M-F from 8am to 10 pm). Then, choose a place, day and time. At the appointment you will hand in the three documents in person, and they will tell you in how many days you should return to pick up your Metro abono card (from 1-3 weeks).


In my opinion, the first option (online) is the best because you won’t have to waste your precious time waiting on line.


If you have any questions during the application process you can email (in Spanish or English) the customer attention service of the Consorcio de Transporte de Madrid:

Monthly pre-pay or Contract mobile phone cost 15€-50€, depending on use too much.

When an international student comes to Madrid, becomes ERASMUS, and as ERASMUS, needs a phone to keep in touch with friends both at home and in Madrid.

But, how can you do this if you don´t have a Spanish number? It´s quite easy if you know perfectly how. Lets see…


Sometimes it is hard to go to a phone shop and ask for prices, so here they are. Have a look and compare!


First you have to choose between “CONTRACT” or “PAYPHONE”. This is not quite easy both in economic and practical ways so let´s have a look on each one.


Contract Mobile Phone:


Supposes signing a contract with the company for at least 12 months. Can be cheaper than a payphone but we only recommend this way if you are staying for a full year here in Madrid. You should choose a “VOICE+DATA” fare; we suppose you actually own a smartphone.


To sign a contract with the operator you need to get the shop. Once there you must carry your PASSPORT and a CURRENT ACCOUNT Nº. BASED IN SPAIN. So if you want to get this way you should open an account at an Spanish bank.



Easier way of getting an Spanish number. Just get the shop and ask about fare. We recommend you a “VOICE+DATA” fare because we suppose you own a smartphone.


When the fare has been choosen you just need your ID CARD and some cash to pay for it. It is the best way and we recommend you to purchase this kind of line.



There are a lot of things going through your head when you move to a new country, one of those things is finding the best cellphone (mobile) deal out there.  Madrid is home to many cellphone providers, most of them you have never heard of, unless you have visited other places in Europe or South America. These providers are the first ones you will see and hear about, but they are not necessarily the best option for you.

Below you will find a list of the best and not so great cellphone companies in Madrid.

  1. Orange (Ok)


This company has really good deals for students, they also give away some pretty good phones when you sign up. You can get a prepaid plan and put in as much money as you want every week/month. Every week the company will deduct (if your phone has credit) three something euros and with that you get: 1gb data on your phone, free texting and some free minutes. No hidden fees and no need to sign a contract.


  1. Vodafone (not so good)


This company is huge and very well known, but not great with customers and their phone plans. They charge ridiculous rates, sometime you get an obscene bill for calls you never made and they do not have good deals (phone wise).


  1. Lebara (Good)


This is probably the best way to go. Lebara is very popular amongst foreign and national students. Not only do you get great phones when you sign up with them, but they have a plethora of amazing prepaid plans. The deals are very cheap and you get a great service…fast internet on your phone, free text and minutes every month.


  1. Movistar (Ok)

Like a same as Vodafone. These guys might just take the cake when it comes to lousy cell phone service. Laughable rates, that you never actually know where they come from, because they never send you a bill. If you get a pay as you go plan both the internet service and minutes are exceeded as soon as you get them.


Internet costs around 37€-53€ well-know companies Jazztell, Movistar, Orange etc. only one time paying instalitaion for internet 37-60€. Internet is already installed and costs are included in the monthly rent.

First of all, if you plan on staying in Spain for longer than six months, you will probably need a bank account. For foreigners in Spain, there are two types of bank accounts: resident and non-resident accounts. Banking and payments will be easier once you open a bank account in Spain, especially if you don’t have a ‘chip and pin’ debit or credit card.

Requirements for opening an account:

  • applicants must be aged 18 or over
  • photographic proof of identity (passport or National Identity Card from the country of origin for each of the applicants)
  • proof of occupation or status (employment contract/payslip, letter from accountant/lawyer, pension or disability payment confirmation, student card). This is an extra requirement introduced in 2007 by the Bank of Spain as a measure to combat money-laundering
  • residents also need to produce their Foreigner Identification Number and certificate (Número de Identificación de Extranjeros or NIE)
  • confirmation of address (utility bill, driving licence or council tax bill; proof of address must have been issued within the last 3 months)


Baking fees in the Madrid

Most banks charge an annual fee for administration of a current account (cuenta corriente). This is more or less EURO 15–30. There are often additional charges for credit (tarjeta de crédito) and debit cards (tarjeta de débito); additional account holders; savings accounts (cuenta de ahorros) and other items like cheque/check books. Expect to also pay a number of small fees, such as a charge of EUR 0.50–3 for withdrawals from other banks’ ATMs.

It is possible to avoid many of these fees by shopping around. A paycheque account (cuenta nómina) typically has lower charges but must be the account your salary is paid into. Special offers available at time of writing include free credit and debit cards with a no-fee salary account and no-fee online-only accounts with major institutions. Students, young people (30 or under) and those over 55 may also qualify for discounts.

Opening a Spanish bank account before you move

Many Spanish banks accept non-resident accounts, so it is possible to set up an account in advance of your move. It’s easiest to do this in person, though, as credit cards and cheque books typically can’t be sent internationally. Many banks have websites and phone services, and a few even offer these in English. Internet-only banks are typically only available for residents. A bank with a quick turn around can open an account and provide a card, cheque book and PIN (to collect from the branch) within a week.


Money Transfer to Abroad

Moving money from your account in Spain to an account elsewhere may result in a fee from both banks. Spanish banks usually charge fees of around 3€–15€ for outgoing payments, and may also charge for receiving funds. Find out your bank’s fixed rate (probably not published on their website) as it will normally be cheaper than a wire service for large amounts but likely more expensive than online systems (eg. PayPal) for small amounts. Banks will often refuse to send funds to certain countries, eg. USA. You might also see what rates private money transfer companies offer, although be sure to include any commissions in your cost calculations.

Spanish healthcare system is ranked among the best in the world. Here’s how to sign up to free state healthcare in Spain, or apply for health insurance. If you’re living and working in Spain you’ll likely have access to free state Spanish healthcare, paid partly by social security payments, which will be deducted from your wage.

Public and private healthcare in Spain

Spanish healthcare consists of both private and public healthcare, with some hospitals (Spanish name – centros de salud) offering both private and state healthcare services (asistencia sanitaria pública). You don’t need to have private health insurance to get medical treatment in Spain but it usually allows you to get faster treatment for non-emergency procedures.

Around 90% of Spaniards use the public healthcare system, with some 17% signed up to some sort of private healthcare scheme. In total, 98% of the population are insured for Spanish healthcare. However, healthcare expenditure has been decreasing in recent years and waiting times can be long. For example, the waiting time for operations in Spain has increased over the past few years, averaging 89 days in 2016.

An expat, you are entitled to free state healthcare if you are:

  • resident in Spain and work in employment or self-employment and pay social security contributions,
  • resident in Spain and receiving certain state benefits,
  • resident in Spain and recently divorced or separated from a partner registered with social security,
  • a child resident in Spain,
  • a pregnant woman who is resident in Spain,
  • under 26 and studying in Spain,
  • a state pensioner, or
  • staying temporarily in Spain and have an EHIC card (see below).

If you don’t have the right to state healthcare you have to organise private health cover. If you have been registered on the padrón at your town hall for a year, the Spanish government has a state insurance scheme  with a basic monthly fee. This is administered by the authorities in each autonomous region.

Pharmacies in Spain

Pharmacy opening hours

Pharmacies are usually open Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 2pm and 5pm to 9.30pm, and Saturdays 9.30am to 2pm. There’s usually a notice on the pharmacy window or door with details of the nearest 24-hour pharmacy (farmacia de guardia) – or you can find a list of pharmacies online.

All emergencies in Spain: Call 112 (no area code needed).

The responder will speak a number of languages, and it is also possible to fax or SMS the emergency number in case of disabilities. You can also visit the Urgencias (emergency) department of any hospital. You can always reach 112, even on a mobile phone without a Spanish SIM card.

Lost or stolen card: Credit card cancellations in Spain

Basically, here in Spain the ayuntamiento (town hall) uses the system of empadronamiento as a way of registering the number of inhabitants that live in a specific geographic area. People are expected to register their new address each time they move. The point of this Registation System is to be able to better distribute tax money and government funds based on population. But there are also many benefits to being registered and many legal processes require proof of registration (el certificado de empadronamiento).

It is important to point out that everyone can and should register regardless of their legal status in Spain. It’s confidential information only used to keep an accurate register—don’t be afraid!



  • It proves you’ve been living in Spain which can help you get your residency or immigration papers faster and easier.
  • You will need it to get a card for the healthcare system.
  • It is necessary to get married.
  • You’ll need it to get your driver’s license.
  • It is required to sign your children up for school.


Each region has a slightly different process, but in general they are quite similar. In Madrid the process is particularly easy.

Madrid is divided in 21 districts and each one has its own Junta (administrative office) but  it is actually the OAC (oficina de Atención al Ciudadano) that deals with this process. You can go to any OAC office to register (it doesn’t have to be the one in your district).

To make matters easier, the OAC offers the possibility to do many of the processes directly online. On the townhall’s website, Ayuntamiento de Madrid, you can make your appointment, download the form you will need to fill out, and later you can even download proof of registration (el volante de empadronamiento).

To register in Madrid you need to complete this form, which you can either download or ask for at any OAC office. (If downloading you just need to enter the postal code for your district). It will ask for your basic information (full name, ID document number, birth date, level of studies, and signature). Up to four family members can register on the same form.

In addition to the form you must present your original ID (which can be a passport, NIE, or DNI). For small children you should present the libro de familia. You will also need the original copy of your renter’s contract. You should bring photocopies of everything although they don’t always require them.



  • Request one at the website Munimadrid (Just click Pedir Cita Previa)
  • Go in person to any OAC office
  • Call 010 (or 915298210 if you are calling from outside of Madrid)

The best option is the website because you can see the locations of the different offices and choose a time slot that works for you. Depending on the neighborhood it may be more difficult to get a quick appointment.

Usually the time slots are scheduled at 10 minute intervals within their hours of operation (Monday to Thursday 9-5 and Fridays 9-2). Of course the best times to go are during Spanish lunch hours (between 3 and 5).

I found it very easy to register in my own district (Retiro). I made an appointment a few days prior, went ten minutes early and was helped right away. The woman took my documents, and before I knew it I had my Volante de Empadronamiento. It was my first (and hopefully not my last) experience with efficiency in Spain!



Always obtain an estimate ( presupuesto) of costs in advance, if possible in writing, and shop around and compare fees from a number of lawyers, as they can vary considerably. The estimate should detail exactly what the lawyer will do for his fees. If you consult a number of legal ‘experts’ about the same matter, you’re highly unlikely to receive exactly the same advice.

The Spanish legal system is excruciatingly slow (i.e. largely at a standstill) and there’s a backlog of hundreds of thousands of cases throughout Spain, which means that it takes years for many cases to come to court. Even local courts can take five years to hear a case, although delays are usually up to two years for minor offences and up to four years for serious offences. This means that you should do everything possible to avoid going to court by taking every conceivable precaution when doing business in Spain, i.e. obtaining expert legal advice in advance.

If things do go wrong it can take years to achieve satisfaction and in the case of fraud the chances are that those responsible will have gone bust or disappeared. Note that even when you have a foolproof case there’s no guarantee of winning and it may be better to write off a loss as experience. Local courts, judges and lawyers frequently abuse the system to their own ends and almost anyone with enough money or expertise can use the law to their own advantage. In recent years, public confidence in Spain’s legal system has been rocked by a succession of scandals.


If you’re buying property in Spain, investing in or starting a business, applying for a work permit or making a will, you should employ the services of an experienced Spanish lawyer ( abogado). You may be able to obtain a list of lawyers from your local embassy or consulate. Suggested lawyers’ fees are set by provincial professional bodies ( Ilustre Colegio de Abogados), although individual lawyers often set much higher fees. However, fees are usually lower than those charged by lawyers in northern European countries, with a simple consultation of less than half an hour costing from €50. When preparing contracts involving a sum of money, e.g. property or land purchase, fees are calculated as a percentage of the sum involved. ‘No win, no fee’ lawsuits are illegal in Spain.

Always try to engage a lawyer who speaks your mother tongue. In some areas, lawyers who speak English and other foreign languages are common and they’re used to dealing with foreigners and their particular problems. In cases where a lawyer is obligatory and your income is below double the Spanish minimum wage, you can apply for free legal assistance ( abogado de oficio). The college of lawyers appoints a lawyer to assist you, although they won’t take as much interest in your case as a private lawyer would. In cases involving sums over €900 the services of a barrister ( procurador) is required. If you don’t receive satisfactory service you can complain to the local professional college. Common complaints include long delays, poor communication, high fees and overcharging (particularly with regard to property transactions involving foreigners).


A gestor is an official agent licensed by the Spanish government as a middleman between you and the bureaucracy. This speaks volumes for the stifling and tortuous Spanish bureaucracy, which is so complicated and cumbersome that it’s necessary for citizens to employ a special official simply to do business with the government! It isn’t compulsory to employ a gestor, but without one you must usually speak fluent Spanish (or have an interpreter), possess boundless patience and stamina, and have unlimited time to deal with the mountains of red tape and obstacles that will confront you. However, if you have the time and can speak reasonable Spanish, you will find it extremely ‘educational’ to do your own paperwork.

A gestor’s services aren’t generally expensive and most people find it worthwhile employing one. They usually work in a gestoría, where a number of experts may be employed dealing with different matters, including employment and residence permits; establishing and registering a business; obtaining a driving licence, tourist plates or registering a car; social security and property contracts. A gestor can help you in your dealings with any government body or state-owned company. The quality of service provided by gestores varies considerably and they cannot always be relied upon to do a professional job (some have been known to take money and do absolutely nothing).


A notary ( notario) is a public official authorised by the government, who’s most commonly engaged in property transactions. He doesn’t deal with criminal cases or offer advice concerning criminal law. Notarios have a monopoly in the areas of transferring real property, testamentary (e.g. of wills) and matrimonial acts, which by law must be in the form of an authentic document, verified and stamped by a notario. In Spain, property conveyancing is strictly governed by Spanish law and can be performed only by a notario.

In respect to private law, a notario is responsible for administering and preparing documents relating to property sales and purchases, inheritance, wills, establishing limited companies, and buying and selling businesses. He also certifies the validity and safety of contracts and deeds. If you need irrefutable proof of delivery of a letter or other documents, they should be sent via a notario, as nobody can deny receiving a document delivered through his offices.

Property Administrators

A property administrator ( administrador de fincas) is a licensed professional who’s qualified to handle all matters connected with owning and managing property in Spain, particularly property in an urbanisation where there’s a community of owners. His duties include calling meetings, taking minutes, advising residents, collecting fees, paying taxes and paying bills.


Like French law, Spanish law derives from the Code Napoleón. The lowest court is the justice of the peace ( juez de la paz), dealing with simple matters such as property complaints between neighbours. Neither party need have legal counsel and simple cases are usually resolved at this level. Civil cases are decided by a juzgado/tribunal de primera instancia, where most cases start. The next highest court is a district court presided over by a district judge ( juez de distrito), where you need a lawyer. It handles more serious matters, e.g. unpaid debts for goods and services or failure to meet the conditions of a contract.

Criminal cases are held before a local tribunal de primera instancia e instrucción, followed in order of importance by an audiencia provincial, audiencia territorial, audiencia nacional, tribunal superior de justicia and the Supreme Court ( tribunal supremo) in Madrid. Trial by jury for criminal trials was reintroduced in 1996 after 57 years’ absence. A jury consists of nine people, seven of whom must agree to establish a guilty verdict. You have the right of appeal in all cases.


If you’re arrested you have the right to make a statement in the presence of your lawyer or one nominated by the police if you don’t have one, and the right to an interpreter. You also have the right to advise a member of your family or another person of your arrest or in the case of a foreigner to contact your consul. You can be held for up to 72 hours without charge, after which you must be charged and brought before a court or freed. You cannot be held longer without a judicial order. However, if you’re remanded in custody, you can be held for years while a case is being ‘investigated’.


If you have a complaint against someone, for example your neighbour for making too much noise or your local authority for not collecting your rubbish, and your appeals fall on deaf ears, you can make an official complaint ( denuncia) to the police. There are ombudsmen in most regions who handle certain complaints and queries, many with staff who speak English and other foreign languages. If you have a complaint concerning the way EU laws are interpreted or are being broken in Spain, you should complain to your European member of parliament. You can also bring a lawsuit against the Spanish state. However, you should expect to wait a long (long) time for your case to be heard.


At the end of 1999, the Spanish parliament approved a new version of the Law of Civil Judgement designed principally to speed up the courts and the legal process in Spain. Legal experts and lawyers’ representatives were generally opposed to the reforms because, although the reforms looked excellent on paper, they would come to nothing unless the government injected vast sums of money into the legal system. For example, for more employees and computers to modernise it and to allow the reforms to take place – it’s no good having a law that gives a debtor 20 days to appeal if you haven’t got the staff at the court to inform the debtor and carry out other essential duties. Needless to say, the reforms became law in 2001 without the extra investment!

Included is a ‘small claims’ system designed to assist the self-employed and small businesses to collect their debts. The creditor completes a form claiming his payment, which must be accompanied by some form of proof of the debt and lodges it with the court. The services of a solicitor or barrister aren’t required. The debtor then has around 20 days to pay or explain why he won’t be paying. If the 20 days pass without the debtor doing either, then the judge immediately proceeds to an embargo of the debtor’s goods and/or property. While many other aspects of the new law have yet to come to fruition because of lack of investment, the ‘small claims’ procedure has been very successful and claims are generally resolved quickly.

Never assume that the law in Spain is the same as in any other country, as this often isn’t the case and some Spanish laws are bizarre. Note that it’s illegal for anyone to be without some form of personal identification in Spain and you should carry your residence permit or passport at all times (you can be asked to produce it by a policeman). Certain legal advice and services may also be provided by your embassy or consulate in Spain, including, for example, an official witness of signatures (Commissioner for Oaths). A useful book for Spanish residents and property owners is You and the Law in Spain by David Searl (Santana).
