Pros: No surprises.Cons: In Europe, offices in downtown area close early during weekends and holidays. This could create problems because you just drop your car/keys in a parking lot and there is nobody to check your car.

easy as piePros: The attendant was extremely helpful and very accommodating. Would like Dollar to understand her valuable contribution.

Don't Ask for the Same Information Twice PleaseCons: The address given is the train station, but the actual location is across the street and a little down the road. They asked me for advance information by email to speed the rental process. I provided it, but then they asked for the same information again at the counter. Even so, the rental was pretty quick and easy.

Cons: When we arrived at 4 our car was booked from 12 for a week, they informed us that they had given away our car, and had no car available for us, This left us stranded at airport , they did not care, that we had no car for the week, it certainly spoiled our holiday, we could not get another car at airport, and we were staying in Viverio which is a two hour drive, i intent to put a claim into this company, their service was appalling, their service was appalling, they just said ( tough) we have no car , so go away, Never in all my years travelling have i ever been trear
10.0 Excellent3 Jul 2017
Pros: The staff was very helpful and considerate. The car was excellent, a better option than what I was expecting.Cons: The fact that the full insurance for the five days cost me as much as the car itself but I accepted this because I wanted to drive as relaxed as possible, considering it was my first driving experience on the roads of Spain.

Good experience with EuropcarPros: Great value by reserving online ahead of time rather than walking up to the gate. Very friendly and multi-lingual clerks for the most part!Cons: The GPS we paid to rent powered up it didnt' actually connect with any satellites, so we had to navigate ourselves. It cost us a few minutes along the way. I wish they had taken the time to verify it was actually working before sending us out with the faulty unit.
10.0 Excellent12 Oct 2016

3.6 Mediocre12 Jul 2018
Hidden charges B.S.Cons: My plane was late and I was picking up a car 3 hours after agreed time. To my surprise I was that Hertz only keeps your car - for which you paid for - for two hours after agreed time. Apparently somewhere there is a small print saying so. I was told that my car was already rented and it was the last one in my category, and I had two choices - either wait until someone returns a car in my category and the car gets clean and becomes available for me - which could take 3, 5, 8 hours or Gods knows how long. Or my second option was to pay for an upgrade. So, given the lousy choice I had to pay for an upgrade 20 Euros.
4.8 Okay19 Jun 2018
Rolling lemon.Pros: GPSCons: The car motor stopped every time the car stopped - every stop sign, every time the car stopped in line. The car also had very little power, so these types of stops were multiplied. When I complained about this situation, the agents tried to pretend that all cars in Spain are that way.
6.8 Good22 May 2018
InsurancePros: Car was nice clean efficientCons: They wanted to charge me 170 euro for insurance on a 2 day rental

Pros: Great vehicle. The Hertz representative that assisted me in Santiago was incredibly helpful with all of my questions.
8.4 Excellent4 Jul 2017
Great small car for driving in Spain. Buena coche por manejar en EspañPros: Very compact, great gas mileage. Muy chicita, cuesta menos por milla.Cons: Los sientos fueron incómodos. The seats were uncomfortable.
4.4 Okay24 Jul 2016
Not as advertised!Cons: I feel scammed by Hertz! The price at the airport was 75% more than kayak listed and confirmed by email despite declining additional features. When i returned the car there was no one to accept it despite intentionally returning it during their stated business hours. I used the key drop and receive an email adding an additional 168 eruos for "damages". I checked the car carefully before and after the rental and there was no new damage. This is the second time this has happened to me renting a car in europe through Kayak. I've rented a hundred different vehicles on four different continents over the years and I've only had a problem when I rent through Kayak in Europe.

Pros: Staff we’re very friendly and polite. Pick up and drop off W was very easy.Cons: They didn’t have the car we wanted so we ended up with a 9 seater van which wasn’t a problem for us but it wasn’t the easiest thing to drive!
6.0 Good6 Oct 2019
Pros: The car supplied was new and clean, also the class was higher then initially ordered for the same price.Cons: When I picked up a car I noticed that the price is 90 euro higher than the original order. It was told to me that its a "transfer fee" due to the fact that I was returning a car in different city. This fee was not specified in an initial online order that I made through Kayak. I had other choice but to pay it(looking for another rental for the same dame was not an option), buy left with a feeling of being scammed for 90 euro.

insurancePros: I liked that I was able to contract an insurance through the your web page, with Jefferson insurance company, and covered in Spain with ALLIANZ. and at a reasonable rate of $ 135 for 14 days of useCons: When I got to Santiago Budget informed me that with the insurance that I had, if I had an accident I would have to pay them for whatever damages and then I would have to be refunded my ALLIANZ. Obviously this was not an option, so I had to get the insurance that they provided which was far more expensive $ 415,85. I think this is very poor on behalf of budget, and the customer in your web page needs to be informed of this. We also filled the car in a gas station that was about 1 kilometer from the drop off before returning it, but was charged 21 euros for gas. Very strange.
2.0 Mediocre4 Jul 2018
unexpected chargesCons: "office location" and "one way" fee charges unexpected as I booked specifying clearly pickup and dropoff locations. Also, I was informed that CDW was 24 euros and total coverage 28 euros, so I took total. But later in the invoice I noticed that CDW was indeed 11 euros. That is, I was misinformed intentionally to sell me the more expensive option. Also, both, pickup (Pontevedra) and dropoff (Santiago) representatives were plain rude.
5.6 Okay5 May 2018
Not what we orderedPros: The guy at the counter was very friendly.Cons: We needed a van. We paid (through the nose) for a van. We got a wagon, albeit a nice one, that was not big enough for what we needed. We were still charged for the van.
2.0 Mediocre17 Jul 2017
Need a compensation from Katay.Pros: nothingCons: Kayak showed a van with 7 passenger with 3 bags rented with Budget. Actual reservation made by Kayak to Budget is a 5 passenger car + 3 bags or 7 passenger with no bag. Given that we were 7 passenger + bags we had no choice of renting a van with Europcar costing double the price of my reservation made 8 months in advance. Need a comensation.

Top tips for hiring a car in Santiago de Compostela

  • Visit one of the most breathtaking cathedrals and the Old Town of Santiago de Compostela, which is so beautiful it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city has a lot to offer, including the famous Camino de Santiago, and a hire car will give you maximum freedom to explore everything in your own time and pace. Also seize the opportunity to venture out into the Galician countryside and make the most out of your trip to Santiago de Compostela.
  • The best way to reach the city from Santiago de Compostela’s airport is by car, so picking up a hire directly from there is a good option. The hire car desks are located at the terminal and include agencies like Hertz, Sixt, or Europcar. The A-54 will get travelers to the city center in about 25 minutes.
  • Driving in Santiago de Compostela is generally a very pleasant and straightforward endeavor. Roads are well-maintained in most parts and signs indicate speed limits or convey other important information. Just remember that, in Spain, turning right at an intersection when the light is red is not permitted. If going into a roundabout, stay in the outer lane, even when taking the last exit. The inner lane is usually used for faster cars who want to pass other drivers.
  • Rush hour can also hit a quaint city as Santiago de Compostela, so try to avoid venturing out between 7-10 am and 6-9 pm, as these are the times when the roads in and around Santiago de Compostela are most congested. Finding a parking spot inside the city during peak times can also be a challenge, so also consider exploring the Old Town on foot and leaving the car parked a little bit outside of town.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Santiago de Compostela for £13 or less
  • Book your car hire in Santiago de Compostela at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Santiago de Compostela are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • On average a car hire in Santiago de Compostela costs £581 per month (£19 per day).

  • This is an old city with narrow lanes and limited parking opportunities inside the center. A compact car is definitely a wise choice, as it will allow you to whizz in and out of the city easier, maneuver tight corners, or squeeze into a small parking spot. Most cars in Spain are stick shifts, so, if you are not used to driving a manual car, be prepared to pay a little extra for an automatic one.

  • In Spain, speed limits are given in km/h but, as the speedometer will also be in km/h, it should be no problem. Generally, and unless indicated otherwise, 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed to drive in the city center. On single carriageway roads, 90 km/h (55 mph) can be driven and up to 120 km/h (75 mph) is allowed on highways.

  • For one liter, drivers usually have to pay around €1.40, which is about $6.36 per gallon. Petrolstations in the city often close around 10 pm and the payment is usually made after refilling the tank, either inside the station with cash or card, or at the machines outside next to the refuel station.

  • The closer you get to the center, the more expensive and difficult parking becomes. On-street parking is often metered, so check for signs and meters. The easiest way to ensure reliable parking is to opt for a hotel with it included, but there are also public parking lots like the Parking Municipal Santiago or Parking San Fernando, among others.
