Tip: Cash is king in Spain. Don’t expect to be able to pay for food, drinks, or taxis by card – most smaller establishments only accept cash. If you only spend a small amount in a place, such as a few euros for a drink, it’s frowned upon to use a large bill to pay, so make sure you have a ready supply of smaller notes in your wallet. Of course, when it comes to rental cars in Spain, credit cards are welcome at HAPPYCAR.
Tapas is a small snack eaten alongside a drink of coffee, beer, or wine. Traditionally served after work and before dinner, they are casual dishes that you must experience while in Spain. A Pincho is a ‘taste’ and is usually a bowl of salty olives or fried potatoes. Tapas can be items such as croquettes, shrimp (gambas), octopus, roasted peppers, or oily fish. Order three or four and try the specialties of the region. These snacks will keep you going until the main meal at 9 or 10 o’clock when Spaniards sit down for their dinner. Low-cost car hire in Spain helps you get from one part of town to the other, so you can sample local tapas in more than one café.

If you're flying into the south, pick up cheap car rentals at Málaga Airport AGP and be on the sand in Marbella in around 35 minutes. Tarifa Beach along the Costa de la Luz has a casual vibe and is ideal for windsurfing.
