A Coruna Airport, less than five miles from the namesake capital city of its namesake state, serves one of Spain's northwestern-most regions. Local buses which depart from the airport every half hour and taxis are this airport's only direct public transportation options, but the nearest rail station, San Cristóbal, lies close-by in the city of A Coruna. However, car rental in A Coruna Airport is the simplest way to explore this scenic area of northwest Spain, just 30 miles from Santiago de Compostela.
Who to Book With
Avis, Europcar, National Atesa and Hertz are all represented at the car rental desks near the A Coruña Airport exit, within the Arrivals lobby.
Need to Know Essentials
These documents need to be presented at vehicle collection:
- A driver’s licence which has been valid for at least a year
- Proof that the motorist is at least 21 years of age
- A valid passport for drivers from outside of Spain
The city and state of A Coruna generally have relaxed and easy driving conditions, but even this relatively sparsely populated region of Spain contains its fair share of reckless drivers. Driving is on the right in Spain and motorists must turn on their right turn signal lights when approached by vehicles attempting to pass. All autopistas signed with the letter ‘A’ are toll roads. The smaller ‘N’ roads vary dramatically in quality, from streets leading directly to people's driveways to fully-fledged motorways. Autopistas and major cities are the easiest places to find fuel stations which are open 24 hours.
Apart from taxis and car hire, local buses which travel across the city and state of A Coruna are the only direct transportation between A Coruna and its surrounding region. The main A Coruna bus station and San Cristóbal railway station are located close to each other in the centre of A Coruna.
San Cristóbal is the nearest rail station to A Coruna Airport. After taking a bus, taxi or rented vehicle along the five miles between the airport and San Cristóbal railway station, passengers can then board RENFE trains to other Spanish cities, including Santiago de Compostela for about £6 per one-way ticket or Madrid for under £45 per one-way ticket.
Local taxi companies like Radiotaxi and Tele Taxi operate on four different fare rates depending on driving distance and time of day. Weekend and holiday taxi fares are more expensive. Extra supplements are charged for cats, dogs and extra baggage.
