Car Hire Spain

Spain is a fantastic place to go on holiday. That cannot be denied. At any time of year and throughout the country, it is a magical experience. From the sunny beaches on the Mediterranean, to the majestic Pyrenees Spain is a treasure trove of delights waiting to be discovered.

Whether you are going for just a few days, a week, or even longer exploring Spain is always a rewarding experience. It is true however that without car hire Spain would not be very accessible. There are a few alternatives to hiring a car, but in Spain this may not always being advisable.

Public transport in Spain is actually very good. Compared to countries such as the UK the trains and the buses are cheap, clean and reliable. It might seem that without the expense of car hire Spain could be gotten around quite easily. While this is true to an extent, there are some very good reasons why using car hire Spain becomes even better.

Firstly there is the freedom that comes from having access to a personal vehicle. It means that you can a holiday at your own pace, go where you want to go when you want to go there, with the added bonus of a CD player and air conditioning at your beck and call.

There is however one absolutely killer reason why with car hire Spain becomes a much more attractive holiday destination. That is that the roads in Spain are fantastic. During the 80s and 90s vast amounts of money was spent creating one of Europe's finest road networks. But it is not just the convenience of the roads that trying car hire Spain that is good. Some of the roads that you can drive are truly spectacular.

If you took the trouble to learn to drive you really owe it to yourself to try driving on some of Spain's spectacular roads. Twisting through high mountains and along scenic coastal routes you will realise that just getting from a to b is to miss the point.

  1. Driving in Catalonia is fantastic, i just drove Barcelona to Andorra (to snowboard), although a slow road, awesome views!
    One thing i think you missed, all the benefits you state are correct, but you forgot the road side cafe/restaurants/services...unlike the UK where you are charged a small fortune for a dodgy sausage roll/sandwich that was made several days ago, you have the treat of quality food at very good prices...the food in Spain is incredible...puts the uk with its wealth and resources to shame.
