Top tips for hiring a car in Spain

  • If you want to visit the more rural areas of Spain, your best option is to rent a car, as public transportation tends to be sparse in the countryside. The perks of renting a car in Spain include the outstanding views from coastal roads and highways. Outside of major towns and cities, the roads are clear and offer routes to natural wonders like the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range, which is an 82.1 km (51 mi) drive north of Madrid.
  • If you plan to take your rental car across the European border, you will need to check that your particular car is permitted. You must gain permission from your car hire company before you cross the Spanish border. If you rent a car from the Canary or Balearic Isles, you cannot take your rental car on a ferry.
  • When it comes to parking in Spain, you will find that many of the tourist attractions and cities will have plenty of pay-and-display parking, while parking tends to be free in the country or rural areas. Blue zones, indicated by blue markings on the street, mean that you can pay for the parking at the blue ticket machines for between 0,70 € ($0.79) and 1 € ($1.12) per hour. Parking is free on Sundays.
  • If you are traveling with children in a car, keep in mind that any child under 12 years old or under 1.35 m (4 ft, 6 in) tall must sit in a restraint system. Infants up to nine months old or below 10 kg (22 lbs.) must travel in a carry cot in the back seat, while children up to the age of 12 must sit in either a car seat or booster seat in the back of the car. If you do not bring your own child car seat, you may rent one from a car hre company for around 12 € ($13) a day.
