FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be 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 a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
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 a delay. As a 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 is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Spain Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Spain

All you need to know about Car Rental in Spain

With its rich history, Spain is a fascinating large country in Southern Europe. Each area of this beautiful country offers visitors something completely different: Metropolitan cities, rustic towns, lively beaches, and quaint harbors are all appealing to visitors. From Bilbao on the northern coast to Cadiz in the south, there are wonderful sights to see and an exciting history to encounter. With around 195,000 square miles to explore, a rental car in Spain is the easiest way to get around. 

Great towns and cities to visit

Whatever region you plan to visit, book the best car hire in Spain to make the most of these incredible places:

  • Madrid is the capital city and is located in the center of the country. The Royal Palace, the Prado Art Museum, and the Plaza Mayor are the sights not to be missed.
  • Barcelona on the east coast is lively and packed with sights, such as Sagrada Familia Cathedral, Gaudi’s architecture, and the Gothic Quarter.
  • A stunning cathedral, the Alcazar, and a historical bullring draw visitors to Seville in the south of Spain.
  • Granada boasts the magnificent Alhambra, a palace built in a blended Medieval, Islamic, and Renaissance style.
  • San Sebastian, in the north, has great wine, the tastiest tapas, and atmospheric, narrow lanes.

Rent a car in Spain to tour the places you've always wanted to visit. 

*** 

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.

Try some delicious tapas!

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.

The best Spanish beaches

The Costas attract tourists from far and wide. There’s something for everyone, and they’re all easily accessible with cheap car hire in Spain. In the north, the Costa Brava has pine-tree backed sand and family-friendly beaches like Calella and Tossa del Mar. Costa Blanca offers more lively beaches, such as Benidorm, Punta Prima, and Alicante, where there are lots of restaurants and clubs. 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.

Spanish festivals throughout the year

Car hire in Spain can take you to the biggest and most famous festivals. La Tomatina takes place in the town of Buñol. Held at the end of August, participants throw ripe tomatoes at each other. The bull-running festival occurs in the winding streets of Pamplona during July. La Merce festival is Barcelona’s biggest event, which happens in September. The celebrations include fireworks, live music, and the Castellers, men standing on each other’s shoulders to make human towers. Use HAPPYCAR to get the cheapest car hire in Spain to take part in all the festivals.
