Car rental in Spain
Discover your own Spain in our car!Why to go to Spain? For photos on the background of numerous architectural monuments? For unusual souvenirs and exclusive jewelry? For jamon and sweet wine? Yes, for all these things as well.
But first of all people come here for energy produced by the land of Castile. They travel to feel the invisible force that once allowed the Spaniards to conquer half the world and throughout the centuries completely dominate the Atlantic.
Would you like to grasp this feeling? Then go on a trip round Spain by car.
Spain is a densely populated country with people who never stay in the same place. Therefore, there are a lot of airports here. The largest of them are in Alicante, Barcelona, Valencia, Girona, Madrid, Andalucia, and Mallorca.
There are rental stations in each of them, however, you can rent a car almost in all the cities in Spain. Everything depends on the route you choose. But, in any case, renting a car and collecting it in the most convenient place for you will not be a problem.
Routes and attractionsCommon sense suggests that it is better to start your car trip near the coast and move to the capital. On the Spanish beaches of the Mediterranean you can relax at any time of the year, but if you are in Spain between April and October, you should spend a few days at the seaside and in the sun. Your further plan will depend on where you are.
AlicanteIn Alicante, in addition to luxurious beaches for every taste, there are many architectural monuments worth of attention. The most famous are the Santa Barbara Castle on Mount Benacantil, and the Basilica of Santa Maria. Do not forget to drive along Explanada boulevard and buy ceramic souvenirs before leaving the city.
BarcelonaIn the capital of Catalonia, you can spend an unforgettable vacation, traveling between the beaches, the streets of the city and its surroundings. For architecture lovers we can suggest visiting such amazing places as the Cathedral of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, the Casa Batlló and the Casa Mila; for shopping you definitely need to visit a cheerful Boqueria market, where you can find everything you want.
By the way, the luxurious Calella resort is just an hour’s drive from here.
ZaragozaOn the way to Madrid, be sure to visit Zaragoza to admire the flamingos and go fishing in the Ebro river, see the frescoes of the Basilica of Nuestra Siniora del Pilar, and see the castle of Aljaferia – even if from the car window - one of the finest examples of the Moorish style.
Well, spend some time shopping, of course. In addition to world famous wines, you can buy good and cheap clothing, as well as high quality leather goods - shoes, bags, etc.
MalagaLa Malagueta beach meets all modern comfort and service requirements. If you want to experience something authentic, leave the city, and go in the eastern direction. You will enjoy one of the wild beaches in small bays for sure.
As for the city, everything depends on the taste. You can visit the Picasso Museum, or a museum of cars famous for its unique exhibits.
The distance between Malaga and Madrid is 530 km, and you should definitely visit Granada on your way. If you want to know what it means to live large, you should visit the Generalife gardens. And spend at least 15 minutes observing the red castle of the Alhambra. Otherwise, the visit will not count.
MadridThe capital of Spain is an entire life. Therefore you should stay here for at least three days in order to walk from the statue ‘the Bear and the Strawberry Tree’ to the monument to Don Quixote, to visit Triangulo del Arte - the "Golden Triangle of Art" with its magnificent museums, and walk along the Puerta del Sol, the main square of the country.
Then your route depends on your interests. Go to Preciados la Sal and Rastro if you want to buy antiques, to Salamanca for clothes, and to Barquillo for electronics. And wherever you are, the magic of Madrid architecture will accompany you.
The itinerary is extremely interesting, but certainly not the only one. Even on the islands - Ibiza or Mallorca – it’s not hard to find a road you will enjoy driving on. In general, you can travel in Spain for miles and miles, and each time you will fall in love with this wonderful and lovely country more and more.
