“Amazing prices for Madrid hiring”

“We changed our plans for our trip to Madrid according to the wonderful price of rent-a-car showed up. So, instead of staying only in Madrid, we are going to travel around the capital.”

Madrid Barajas Airport Guide

Who to Book With
Passengers that fly to Madrid Airport have a choice of five car hire companies. Desks here include those representing Avis, Europcar, Hertz, National Atesa and Sixt. Not all suppliers have an on-site presence, with some requiring hirers to access their depot via shuttle bus.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- Valid UK driver's licence
- Credit card that was used for completing the reservation
- Confirmation of ID via passport
- Confirmation of booking

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Driving around Spain's major cities can be a nerve-wracking experience and parking fines of up to £80 are common for offenders. Many cities have one-way routes and left turns can be a rarity. Drivers using Spain's highways must legally rest every two hours; fines are a constant threat to those that don't adhere to this law. The procedure at most filling stations is to fill the tank first and then pay after, although this varies from station to station.

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