Almeria Airport Guide

Car Hire

Consistently basking in the lovely Mediterranean sunshine, Almeria Airport is situated a mere 5.6 miles from Almeria city centre, making it one of the more convenient airports in the region. Arriving passengers can maximise convenience by taking advantage of car hire, which allows for a quick drive to great beaches such as Las Salinas (25 minutes) as well as to the fantastic Natural Park of Cabo de Gata Nijar (35 minutes). Alternatively, bus service to central Almeria is available year round via Route 20 (Airport-Centre) and taxis are available 24 hours.

Who to Book With
Car hire brands operating at Almeria Airport include well-known firms Europcar, Avis and Hertz, in addition to local provider Goldcar Rental. Rental counters can be easily located in the Arrivals area of this single-terminal facility.

Need to Know Essentials
Those planning to hire a car at Almeria Airport need to bring the following documentation:

- A valid driver’s license (a UK licence is acceptable)
- Booking information
- The credit card used to reserve your vehicle

For more info read our FAQ's.

Road rules and safety laws in Spain are similar to those elsewhere in Western Europe. Front and rear seatbelts are compulsory, speed limits are strictly enforced and fines are issued on the spot. Driving on the right can be stressful for British drivers, although Almeria’s uncrowded roads make driving here less stressful than in other regional destinations such as Barcelona, Malaga and Valencia. Be prepared for a number of roundabouts between the airport and the city centre on the Autovia de Aeropuerto (AL-12).

See our guide to Spain for more information on driving here.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
