Famed for its beaches, sun, sangria and inordinate number of UNESCO World Heritage sites, exotic Spain is the number one holiday destination for Brits. Its fiery fiestas and bubbly locals add to the appeal, while near to every town and beach is a worthwhile sight. Rates for car hire in Spain are among the cheapest in Europe.
Madrid and Barcelona are the main gateways, receiving both long- and short-haul flights with flag carriers and low-cost airlines alike. Malaga, Valencia, Alicante, Bilbao, Majorca and Tenerife also have major airports with car hire facilities. Most people fly here but the mainland is well connected to other parts of the continent by train and there is a good network of motorways.
Spain is large and getting about by car is definitely the best way to see it. The capital, Madrid, is linked to major cities such as Barcelona, Malaga and Toledo by motorway. Compare car hire with all the main suppliers, including Avis, Budget, Hertz and National and pre-book a vehicle. Pick up and drop off at the airport, in cities, and at beach resorts.
Spain's roads are generally good and on par with those in the UK, and while the main routes near cities are busy, there are miles of pleasant driving on account of the country's size. You can drive all the way along the Mediterranean coast and into the Picos de Europa, for example. Avoid city driving on account of confusing one-way streets, expensive parking and impatient local drivers.
There's a lot to see with car rental in Spain, wherever you're based. If you're in Madrid, Toledo is an easy drive south. There are nice beach resorts right across the Costa del Sol and within reach of Barcelona, while those based in Bilbao or San Sebastian can head over to France. Cordoba and Seville both have fantastic sights and are near to the famed Ronda Valley.
The main tourist season in Spain is May to September. It's hottest in the south (along the Costa del Sol) in July and August, along with in Madrid and the Canary Islands. This time is when Spain also sees its most tourists and driving requires more patience. Expect average temperatures in the high 20s (°C) in summer and even in the 20s during the Canaries winter.

If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
