Tips for renting a car in Spain

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Spain including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 24 May 2024.
  • From the mountains of the Northern Pyrenees to the coastlines of Andalusia, Spain presentstravellerss with a diverse variety of experiences. To truly appreciate everything Spain has to offer, renting a car is an optimal choice. Not only does it give you the freedom to explore Spain's rich tapestry at their own pace, but it also provides the flexibility to extend adventures beyond Spanish borders. For those considering this opportunity to explore by car, it's a straightforward process. Simply ensure you discuss potential international travels with the rental agency in advance. While some agencies might have specific terms or require additional insurance for cross-border excursions, these are usually easy to navigate. Also, keep in mind that certain fees, such as cross-border charges, might need direct in-person payment at the agency. With these minor preparations, you can start your journey through Spain’s rich history and breathtaking landscapes.
  • Driving in Spain requires adherence to specific rules and regulations for a safe trip around the country. For starters, you have to drive your vehicle on the right-hand side of the road. Roundabouts, frequently found across Spain, dictate that vehicles already in the circle have the right of way. Spain maintains a strict blood alcohol limit of 0.05%, emphasizing the importance of sober driving. Additionally, using a mobile phone without a hands-free system while driving is against the law, reflecting Spain's proactive approach to curbing distracted driving.
  • Travelers intending to drive around Spain should be prepared for a diverse range of road conditions. In historic cities like Seville or Granada, narrow and sometimes cobbled streets are common, requiring careful navigation. On the other hand, Spain boasts well-maintained highways, particularly the "autovías" (free highways) and "autopistas" (toll highways), which connect major cities and regions, offering smooth and efficient travel. While signage is generally clear, having a reliable GPS or navigation app with offline maps can be invaluable, especially in less urban areas. Rural roads, particularly in regions like Andalusia or Costa Brava, can be winding and vary in quality, so drivers should remain attentive.
