Granada Airport Guide

Car Hire

Granada Airport, officially known as Federico Garcia Lorca Granada-Jaen Airport, is located in southern Spain. The airport is less than 10 miles west of the city of Granada and easily accessible by self-driving, with car hire at Granada Airport the most convenient transportation option. Alternatively, visitors can use the public bus system or taxi service to get to Granada, which is accessible via the GR-V-1121 road, which also provides direct access to Jaen and Antequera.

Who to Book With
Car hire suppliers are located right at the airport and visitors can choose from international firms, such as Avis and Europcar, and Spanish firm like Goldcar Rental. Rental desks are located on the ground floor of the terminal building and are not open 24 hours – most desks close by 23:00.

Need to Know Essentials
The following documents are necessary in order to pick up your rental vehicle:

- Your UK driver’s licence (both parts)
- Non-UK drivers need a valid EU driver’s licence or an international driver’s licence
- A credit card
- A form of photo ID; for example, a passport
- Booking confirmation

For more info read our FAQ's.

In Spain, drivers need to have with them the vehicle registration documents (for hired vehicles, the hire contract), their driver’s licence (and photo ID if the licence does not have a photograph) and insurance papers. Seatbelts are mandatory for all passengers. Children under the age of 12 may not sit in the front seat and children under three must use a child seat. Under Spanish law, all vehicles must have two warning triangles and reflective vests – the driver should check the hire vehicle to make sure these items are included. 24-hour petrol stations are limited to the major motorways and cities. Petrol stations outside the cities tend to close for lunch between 12:00 and 15:00.

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.

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.

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).
