Spain Car Hire

Spain, famous for its Bull Fighting, Flamenco, Tapas, Paella and Rioja - the list is endless, as are the number of places to hire a car in Spain.

Road in SpainWith the fourth largest motorway network by length of any country in the world, getting around Spain is easy. Roads with two lanes or more in each direction are called Autovias and Autopistas and they connect most of the major cities around the country. Although the official speed limit is 120 kph (75 mph), cars often travel much faster and there has been a recent increase in the number of speed cameras to try and reduce speeding. Most motorways in Spain now charge a toll and this can be expensive, for example Malaga to Gibraltar will cost a driver €13.95 to use Autopista 7. Generally road surfaces are good on motorways and around major towns and cities although some road surfaces in rural areas and especially in north and southwest Spain can be poor and in some cases dangerous.
