With regards to fuel, most of the companies we work with in Spain operate a fair fuel policy. This means you either collect the car full of fuel then return it full, or just return with the same amount provided upon collection. Hassle free and straightforward!
We serve all the major airports in Spain as well as a number of smaller airports and train stations throughout the country. We also operate from city centre locations and can deliver to hotel accommodation in smaller towns and villages. So whether you’re heading to Alicante or Zaragoza, we can help make planning your holiday less stressful.
Thanks to its location, one of the most popular locations for hiring a car is Alicante Airport. The Costa Blanca is home to the popular resorts of Benidorm, Torrevieja, Altea, and Dénia. With numerous activities and watersports on offer, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied whilst you top up your tan and sample some sangria.
If you’re looking to escape to Andalusia’s Costa del Sol, Malaga Airport is your best bet and opens up an endless choice of resorts from which to explore the coastline.
If you head to Almeria Airport, you’ll be greeted with beautiful beaches and fantastic national parks such as the Cabo de Gata-Níjar just a stone’s throw away.
Alternatively, fly to Murcia San Javier Airport to explore the beautiful Costa Calida. Here the “largest swimming pool in the world”, the Mar Menor lagoon, attracts many visitors with its warm, calm waters and plethora of holiday activities.
If you’re looking to take in some of Madrid’s famous art galleries and museums before exploring the interior of Spain, we provide car hire at the airport.
Arriving at Barcelona Airport is the perfect way to start a city break or for those who want to explore further afield. Soak up the sunshine along the Costa Brava or on some of the 4 miles of beaches at Barcelona itself.
We also serve Valencia Airport, from which you can uncover the delights of Spain’s third largest city and fantastic coastline.
Gibraltar Airport is a popular destination for many Brits. Home to the famous Rock of Gibraltar and its resident monkeys (technically Barbary macaques), the Rock has been a divisive issue for years but its Palladian architecture and typically British feel make it a fascinating place to visit.
Whatever you’re looking for, Spain is a magnificent holiday destination with wonderful weather, beautiful golden beaches, delicious cuisine, and a diverse selection of things to see and do for all ages and tastes. Because it’s such a large country, the cheapest way to explore is often by rental car.
If you’re a fan of Flamenco, head to Jerez de la Frontera or Seville to really get in the fiesta mood by catching a show. An Andalusian folk dance, Flamenco is famous all over the world and has been declared one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
Keen to hit the coast? Tour Spain’s extensive coastline and visit some of the most famous resorts such as Torrevieja and Benidorm. But don’t forget some of the lesser visited locations. Be sure to explore the historic naval port of Cartagena, Cadiz or even San Sebastian on the north coast. Due to the distances between some of the most popular towns and cities, a hire car really is the perfect way to tour this area.
When it comes to local flavour, feast on tapas, get a dose of culture, and unearth some of the country’s most famous tourist attractions. Barcelona and Madrid both have plenty to offer holidaymakers and football fans alike. Explore at your own pace and visit some fantastic sights such as the Nerja Caves and La Sagrada Familia before immersing yourself in Spanish culture with a visit to some of the famous festivals such as the Running of the Bulls at Pamplona in early July.
