  1. Can't find location?


Spain is the 3rd most popular tourist destination in the world and it’s not hard to see why. Whether you wish to explore historical sights and architecture, head to the football, go skiing, or simply get away from it all and chill by the beach, Spain has it all.

Why choose Economy Car Hire in Spain?

As a family run business our focus is on you, the customer. We are dedicated to providing the best customer service possible.

We work with both small, local suppliers and large, international firms to bring you a wide choice of vehicles. No matter what car you want for your Spanish holiday, you'll find it here at a fantastic price.

When it comes to fuel, all of the suppliers that we work with in Spain operate a fair fuel policy. This means you either collect the car full of fuel then return it full, or just return with the same amount provided upon collection. The bottom line is, if you're looking to hire a car in Spain, you can't go wrong with us.

What do I need to collect the car?

You will need a valid credit card in the name of the main driver to collect your vehicle. None of the car rental providers that we work with require a DVLA code either. Rest assured that you just need a valid driving licence, photocard or older-style paper licence upon collection. 

Spanish airports

We serve all the major airports in Spain as well a number of smaller airports and train stations throughout the country. We also operate from city centre locations and deliver to hotel accommodation in smaller towns and villages. Wherever you’re visiting, from Alicante to Zaragoza we can help make planning your holiday less stressful.

The Costas

Thanks to its location, one of the most popular locations for hiring a car is Alicante Airport. The Costa Blanca is where you’ll find the hugely popular resorts of Benidorm, Torrevieja, Altea, and Dénia. With numerous activities and water sports on offer, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied whilst you top up your tan and sample some sangria.

If you’re looking to escape to Andalusia’s Costa del Sol, Malaga Airport is your best bet and opens up an endless choice of resorts from which to explore the coastline.

If you head to Almeria Airport you’ll be greeted with beautiful beaches and fantastic national parks such as the Cabo de Gata-Níjar just a stone’s throw away.

Alternatively, fly to Murcia San Javier Airport to explore the beautiful Costa Calida. Here, the “largest swimming pool in the world”, the Mar Menor lagoon tempts many visitors with its warm, calm waters and plethora of holiday activities.

The Cities

If you’re looking to take in some of Madrid’s famous art galleries and museums before exploring the interior of Spain, we provide car hire here too.

Arriving at Barcelona Airport is perfect for a city break or for those who want to explore further afield. Soak up the sunshine along the Costa Brava or at some of the 4 miles of beaches at Barcelona itself.

We also serve Valencia Airport, from which you can uncover the delights of Spain’s third largest city and fantastic coastline.

The Rock

Gibraltar Airport is a popular entry destination. Home to the famous Rock of Gibraltar and its resident monkeys (technically Barbary macaques), the Rock has been a divisive issue for years but its Palladian architecture and typically British feel make it a fascinating place to visit.

Explore Spain

Spain is a fantastic holiday destination with fantastic weather, beautiful golden beaches, delicious cuisine, and a diverse selection of things to see and do for all ages and tastes. Because it’s such a large country, the cheapest way to explore is often by rental car. But which places should you be considering?

If you’re a fan of Flamenco, head to Jerez de la Frontera or Seville to really get in the fiesta mood by catching a show. An Andalusian folk dance, Flamenco is famous all over the world and has been declared one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Keen to hit the coast? Take a tour of Spain’s extensive coastline and visit some of its most famous resorts such as Torrevieja and Benidorm. But don’t forget some of the lesser visited locations. Be sure to explore the historic port of Cartagena, Cadiz or even San Sebastian on the north coast. Due to the distances between some of the most popular towns and cities, a hire car really is the perfect way to tour this area.

When it comes to local flavour, feast on tapas, get a dose of culture, and unearth some of the country’s most famous tourist attractions.  Barcelona and Madrid both have plenty to offer holidaymakers and football fans alike. Explore at your own pace and visit some fantastic sights such as the Nerja Caves and La Sagrada Familia before immersing yourself in Spanish culture with a visit to some of the famous festivals such as the Running of the Bulls at Pamplona in early July.
