Location information for Spain

Spain is best explored by rental car. 121CarHire.com has over 160 pick-up locations in Spain. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Transport

[transport]

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.

Car Hire Spain

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.

Driving

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.

Things To See and Do

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.

Best Time To Visit

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.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. 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. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
