Hire Car in Spain - Where do I start?!

Hey,

I think I'm going to Spain in a couple of weeks, the plans have come out of the blue. I'm going to and from Asturias Airport and I think I'd like a hire car if I can.

I'm 22, 4 years driving experience.

Where do I start looking for a car? Who do I use? I don't really want to paying over the odds for a car and would just be looking for a basic car.

All help appreciated - never hired a car or been to Spain before!

To start with go through Google (type in 'car hire Asturias'), and check Quidco to see if any of the deals you find are on there.

I expect though, that you will have problems with your age and with it being holiday season and short notice I expect that it is going to be very expensive

Sorry I can't be of more help, but good luck! :thumbsup:

auto europe have been the cheapest twice and also good rates as we have friends in Gibraltar who have also used them after we'd used them. And they are on quidco but I dont know if they have offices where youre going

Have you got breakdown cover...? Will come in handy if they include your hire car as we broke down in Portugal in our car......luckily we had cover, didn't pay much extra either

Not very competitive for me I'm afraid. Alot more expensive than lastminute.com. Thanks anyway though, some rep for you for your troubles. :)

Yes...with AutoAid. Doubt that covers Spain though.

Guys n gals...similar subject, just wondering if anyone has any advice re renting for just 2 or 3 days in Majorca (Alcudia area) in September. Is it significantly cheaper to hire from over here or (my preference to) play it by ear and hire when there? Anyone any experience of hiring in Majorca and touring the island?

Depends on companies availability.......get some gestimates from Holiday Auto's (use Quidco to get £10 cashback). Should cost you about £30. Always found it a b*mmer hanging around filling out car rental forms when abroad. I prefer booking in advance :)
