Itinerary for Spain in October - November 2014

We are a group of 6 couples in our late 30's from India travelling to Spain. We are arriving at Madrid on 28th. October 2014 (9 am) and leaving from Madrid to India on 7th.November (10 am). We are interested in night life, partying, beach life, scenic driving and very little of the visiting popular monuments. We were thinking of doing 2 days Madrid, 2 Days Barcelona, 3-4 Days Ibiza and 2-3 days spare for another place (Malaga or Valencia or )in Spain or Paris (if possible). We want to travel economically and hence please suggest between taking rent a car / bus / train or mix of all. Please also suggest other things that we missed out on.

Please also recommend the temperature (max and min) during these days. Most importantly, we are all vegetarians (eat eggs). So also suggest places to stay at the above cities with kitchens so we can prepare our own food.

Also let us know if it is very costly to take car along with us in the ferry while travelling to Ibiza. Where should we put up in Ibiza - San Antonio or Ibiza Town. Will there be night life in Ibiza during those months or only Pacha Club will be open.

Six people and their stuff won't fit into the largest van you can rent with a non-commercial license.

Unlike many other nations and their islands, taking a rental car to any of the Spanish islands voids the contract and the insurance.

We will be taking 2 (7 seater) or 3 cars (4/5 seater) for travelling if travelling by car is economical and convenient.

Although you would enjoy some scenic drives, you have not listed any destinations that require a car. I would consider taking the train so that the party can continue (but not get "out of hand"). You can to bring your own picnic items onboard and even wine and beer. See http://www.raileurope-world.com/ for buying reserved train tickets from India, available 3 months ahead with a discount. Or you can buy them upon arrival in Madrid, at a train station or at the travel agency in the El Corte Ingles department store near Puerta del Sol.

The Tourist Information offices in each city can help you find the latest entertainment schedules. Restuarants and bars will be busy late into the night. www.cross-pollinate.com can help you find apartments in Barcelona or see www.tournights.com for both Barcelona and Madrid. The beach destinations are also likely to offer "self-catering apartments."
