9.6 Excellent29 Oct 2016
Great rental in SpainThe car was clean, comfortable and just what we needed to get around in Spain.The price of insurance was too high, so we didn't purchase it. We just depended on our credit card insurance. We had to get a manual transmission which makes it much harder to drive than an automatic. But the prices of automatics are too high. This is common in Europe, but for those of us from the US we are used to getting automatics for less cost.

5.6 Okay12 Jul 2017
Pick up from airport and return was good, no delays. Car was clean and did the job for us.Like most of the rentals they tried to sell extra Insurance at top cost. We already had extra bought in uk and they still tried. We didn't buy any extra despite their saying our cover wasn't enough. It's time you and other sites sorted this out with the rental companies you offer. They also tried to intimidate us by having an existing body damage report and using it to say we were bound to get more marks and my insurance wouldn't cover it. It did!
4.4 Okay6 Dec 2016
We paid at the end 2,5 times what we expectedWe were charged additionnal fees which were not clearly advertised on your website. We had to choose in the end between an option of 106€ with insurance included, and us having to refil the car. Or pay 120€, not refil the tank (but the difference between the full tank and what we consumed not being deducted) and the deposit. We were told admin fee for refilling the car is aabout 50-60€, which is quite substantial for the service it is. And this was not clearly indicated. Also we were told that if not refilling the tank, the difference between the amount for the full tank, and what we consumed would not be deducted. Which I think is not fair. I'm ok to pay for what I consume, but not for something I don't. At the end we paid much more than advertise on your website, and even though "some potential additional fee" could be expected, there was no clear indication it would be of such amount. We choose the renting of this car company, because of it attractive price, but we think it was missleading. Next time we will most likely look directly on Sixt, AVis, Europcar websites, and not look on Kayak.com as the price indicated there is very much missleading. We are very disapointed at the end. I have boked in the past via Kayak.com and was never badly surprised like this.

Car hire excess insurance in Alicante

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Alicante car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Alicante.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Alicante car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Alicante

  • Alicante has a plethora of attractions and mesmerizing sights dotting the city, from the Castell de la Santa Bàrbara to the beautiful Old Town spreading to the harbor. Whether visiting the Costa Blanca, exploring all of the city’s attractions, or even venturing out into the countryside, with a hire car everything is easier since you get to decide when and where to go. You may even want to explore the city of Murcia, only a 1-hour drive away.
  • When you arrive at Alicante’s International Airport, head to the car hire agency desks in the arrivals hall at the terminal building. There, major companies like Goldcar, Europcar, and Sixt offer vehicles for all tastes. The quickest way into the city center is via the A-70, but the N-332 is a more scenic route along the coast.
  • In Alicante you can be fined for driving in flip-flops, high heels, or barefoot. It is recommended to wear proper foot attire while driving and probably even to opt for closed shoes when sitting behind the wheel -- you can always trade them for flip flops once arriving at the beach. Laws in Alicante are strictly enforced, so ensure you familiarize with them beforehand, as the police usually do not accept excuses (not even from tourists). The legal drinking limit is 0.05% and penalties are enforced when drivers are above that.
  • Around Alicante there are various toll roads, so be sure to bring cash with you and map out the routes in advance, so you know when and where to pay. Around Alicante, the AP7 is a toll road that can be avoided by taken the N-332, which is a bit slower but has no tolls. Traffic on the toll roads, however, is usually lighter; so, for a quicker ride, it could be worth investing the money.
