Subsidised holidays in Spain

A gift from the Spanish Government

No matter how stunning the scenery, if you see it on a day-to-day basis you sometimes need a change. That's why we've been helping pensioners in Spain access Imserso the subsidised holiday programme.

What is Imserso?

Imserso is the holiday scheme for pensioners sponsored by the Spanish Government. During the off-peak season, from October to June, cheaper holidays are made available to resident pensioners in Spain, whatever their nationality.

There are many different destinations available from mainland Spain to the Balearics, Canary Islands and Portugal. Your holiday can be from 8, 10 or 15 days long and includes full board at three and four star hotels. There are also 5 day cultural tours and rural tourism holidays available.

Who is eligible?

The programme is open to anyone who is a resident of Spain and:

You can take a companion too - they don't have to be a pensioner.

What does each holiday include?

* except for the cultural and scenic tours

How much will it cost?

Here are some examples of holidays offered in 2012/2013:

8 days Andalucía 198€ per person
8 days Portugal 208€ per person
10 days Canary Islands 379€ per person
15 days Andalucía 358€ per person
5 days Cultural tour 235€ per person

An Imserso holiday is often cheaper than staying at home!

How can I apply?

All you have to do is complete an application form which includes the following information about you and your companion:

You will then receive an acceptance letter to say that you're eligible and giving you your key number. With this you can go to a participating travel agent and book your holiday or you can book on line.

Then it just remains to enjoy your holiday!

How does Ábaco help?

Open days ‘Life’s A Beach’.

We invited clients and other eligible residents to come to our ‘Life’s A Beach’ open-days and find out more about Imserso.  The two events were a huge success with over 600 people attending altogether.


Accompanying our clients to the travel agent.

Clients and non-clients have benefited from our help. However, our clients have received extra assistance as we’ve even accompanied them to the travel agent to help with the final stage of booking the holiday.


Seminars in clubs, societies and associations.

We felt that Imserso holidays were such a wonderful opportunity that we just wanted to tell everyone about them.

So we have been advertising, running open days and attending clubs, societies and associations in order to give everyone the good news.
