Gibraltar Day Tour

Gibraltar Day Tour – how to book the best experience

Booking a good Gibraltar Day Tour is essential if you only spend a couple of hours in Gibraltar. Gibraltar Tourism consists of many tourist attractions, and missing out on the main attractions is easy. Official Rock Tours Gibraltar provide an excellent solution for visitors. However, Victory Tours Gibraltar also offers Gibraltar Sightseeing Tours for your visit to Gibraltar. All our Gibraltar Rock Tour prices are transparent, and booking is easy using our online booking site. 

Fortunately, we have made this article to assist you in better understanding how to utilise those precious minutes you may have in Gibraltar if you are only visiting the place from Spain or a Cruise Liner.  

Essential pre-planning for your Day Trip to Gibraltar

To ensure you have no issues getting into Gibraltar, you must ensure that you first have the relevant documentation required by the authorities. 

Make sure you all have the following:

If you are travelling into Gibraltar via car (private or hired), the best solution is to park your vehicle in Spain and cross walking into Gibraltar. This will allow you to avoid any vehicular queue into Gibraltar. 

Recommended Car Park:

Parking Santa Bárbara – this car park is next to the frontier between Spain and Gibraltar. It has security, and you can also pay electronically. Directions to the car park can be found here.

UK Nationals:

You can get emergency treatment in Gibraltar by presenting your British passport. However, as some emergency treatment may require you to be transferred to Spain, therefore, you should get a free UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) or European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving for your holiday. If you already have an EHIC it will still be valid as long as it remains in during your stay.

The GHIC or EHIC entitles you to medical treatment abroad that may become necessary during your trip. Any treatment provided is on the same terms as Spanish nationals. Therefore, an EHIC or GHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance and you should have both during your stay. Furthermore, you will not be covered for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment. 

Non-UK Nationals:

Due to the Brexit Saga, non-UK Nationals are advised to consider private Health Insurance for any travel into Gibraltar. 

Duty Pharmacy

If you require any minor medical assistance during your stay in Gibraltar, here you will find information about Pharmacies on Duty

Please note that Gibraltar is not part of the EU Common Customs Territory. Therefore, the amount of some goods (e.g. tobacco and alcohol) you can take into and out of Gibraltar is limited by law.

Please check the Gibraltar Customs website for more information on duty-free allowances when arriving in Gibraltar.

Those regularly entering or returning into Gibraltar (more than once per calendar month) are not entitled to duty-free imports.

If you travel to Spain from Gibraltar, you should declare any duty free goods to Spanish customs officers.

Those returning directly to the UK from Gibraltar are to read the information on bringing goods into the UK.
