Saturday traffic: Catalonia to SDQ.

We booked Catalonia GD for a very beginning of October. Going back on Saturday, October 6. I was wondering if Saturdays traffics are very heavy? What time shell we leave the resort if our plain is departing at at 8 o'clock in the evening? I am very aware that it is impossible to predict traffic, yet any suggestions/tips/advices will be appreciated.

Usually is not busy unles something like a big accident happens and blocks the motorway you should be there in a bit more than an hour.

Check how long before the departure you have to be at the airport, we usually go with the minimum 2 hours. As bigbite says it takes an hour and half to get there, but a half an hour cushion is always good. This is the minimum, some people like to be at the airport earlier then that.

Happy travel

Thank you bigbite & thank you Denise.

I would like to spend more time by the sea (ocean). I'd love to leave "last minute" to go to the airport, yet I would hate to sit in the car and worry if I'll "make" my flight. So, I think it would be reasonable to leave resort around 4:30, which gives me enough time to get to the airport (assuming no or short traffic) and 1,5-2 hours at the airport.

Thank you all again.

Inella.

I think you should all right, but bear in mind that flying to US requires extra checks so give yourself an extra half an hour.
