FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

Free parking is possible just 20 minutes from the city center in Madrid (Sol). It is best to try the streets near the Principe Pio metro stop. There is also street parking available near the shopping mall called Calle de Mozart. Remember on weekday mornings, parking will most likely be full because of people parking to take the Metro. Evenings and weekends should be no problem to find parking in these locations.

General Information

The nightlife in Madrid is legendary. The city has more bars than any other city in the world. A popular night out would include grabbing a drink, eating tapas and wine followed by cocktails and clubs. Ernest Hemingway once said, ‘nobody goes to bed in Madrid until they have killed the night.’

Attractions

The golden triangle of art is made up of three museums, the Museo del Prado, the Museo Reina Sofía and the Thyssen-Bornemisza.

Prado is the national museum featuring 12th – early 19th century art. It is known for having the best collection of Spanish art. Paintings and sculptures are the primary mediums on which the museum focuses. Prado’s best-known work on display is Las Meninas by Velázquez. The building that is now the Prado was designed in 1785 and opened as Museo Del Prado in 1819.

Museo Reina Sofía is a national museum featuring 20th century modern art. The collections consist mainly of Spanish artists featuring such greats as Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. There are some international artist from the 20th century including Yves Klein, Max Ernst, Richard Serra, Damien Hirst, and Joseph Beuys.

Thyssen-Bornemisza got its start with art from the private collection of Heinrich, Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza de Kászon in 1920. The collection covers eight centuries of art, with highlights of the times instead of overall summary. For unique and funky clothing and accessories check out the Plaza de Cascorro.

El Rastro is the Sunday flea market dating back to the 17th century. The market at that time was dedicated to meat markets. It takes place weekly from 9 am – 3 pm Sundays. There are specific streets in the market that are dedicated to specific wares. For instance, Calle San Cayetano is also known as "calle de los Pintores" or 'street of the painters.' Here you can find paintings, drawings and art supplies.

Basílica de San Francisco El Grande is a Roman Catholic Basílica in the center of Madrid. It was built in 1760 and dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi. It was designed in a Neoclassic style. The Basílica has a round floor plan and is said to have the largest dome in Spain, over 100 feet in diameter.

Dining

Going out for tapas ‘ir a tapear’ is a popular tradition and a huge part of the culture. They are a great way to sample Spanish flavors. The tradition of tapas is to find the specialty of each bar and most commonly order a glass of sharp Basque white wine txacoli, cider from Asturias or sherry from Andalucía. Enjoy and repeat at the next bar down the street.

Excursions

With a car rental in Madrid, you can easily visit other Spanish cities including Barcelona, Alicante, and Malaga. With a renal car from HAPPYCAR, Spain is yours to explore and Madrid is waiting for you.
