Spain is a fascinating country; it boasts many beautiful cities and towns that you must visit in order to truly know the diversity of the culture and geography, the best way to get around this destination is by car. Most of the Spain road network is composed by new motorways and the most important ones are: the Mediterranean coastal road from the French border to Alicante, and the one linking the Cantabrian region with Cataluña. If you have your own car it will be a great experience but if you don’t, you can hire one.
Spain has many car rentals companies to choose from, particularly around coastal areas; the best option for you may depend on the costs. We recommend some car rental companies:
If you’re interested in hiring a car, it’ll be necessary you have your passport and a full driving license. Before renting a car, it’s important to consider the best type of vehicle for you carefully before thinking of the cheapest one. Regardless of the fact that you need a mini economical car or a 4x4 or a luxury model, you must be sure that it counts with air conditioning because of the hot Spanish summer months, child seats, seatbelts, and other equipment you’ll need during your visit to Spain.

Spain by Taxi
All major cities in Spain feature taxi services but this is, maybe, the most expensive way to get around although these are more convenient and quicker than other means of transportation; most drivers in Spain do not speak foreign languages so it’ll be useful to have the addresses of your destinations written in Spanish if you don’t count with an interpreter.
