Top tips for renting a car in Costa del Sol

  • If you are planning to drive Costa del Sol car rentals with your kids in tow, it is important to understand the child safety laws. Children under the age of 12 must be sitting in the back of the vehicle in an appropriate car seat for their size. Seat belts must always be worn in the front and the back of the car. If you need a child car seat, you can request one from your chosen rental car company in advance to make sure there is one available when you arrive to pick up car rentals in Costa del Sol.
  • Crossing regional and international borders in Costa del Sol car rentals is pretty easy. As a member of the EU, there is no international border control between Spain and neighboring countries such as Portugal and France. However, you will need to inform your chosen car rental company that you plan to cross international borders, as you may need extra insurance or paperwork for this. Consider a one-way car rental if you plan to drop your vehicle off at a different branch from where you picked it up.
  • Speed limits in Costa del Sol tend to vary depending on your location and what type of road you are driving on. For example, on motorways the speed limit goes up to 120 km/h (75 mph), on dual carriageways 100 km/h (62 mph), 90 km/h (55 mph) on country roads, 50 km/h (30 mph) on roads outside the city center, and 30 km/h (18 mph) on urban roads.
  • It is important to note that Spain has a zero-tolerance policy for drinking and driving, unlike the USA. This means that your BAC must be 0.0%; otherwise, you could face heavy fines. One drink will put you over the legal limit, so be sure to choose a designated driver and do not drink and drive.

  • Should I rent a car in Costa del Sol?

    Renting a car in Costa del Sol comes with many advantages. The region is known for its beautiful beaches and stunning cities and towns bursting with diverse culture and attractions. There are also tons of scenic drives to make in the region, and this will only be possible with Costa del Sol car rentals. For example, you can explore the Montes Nature Park Malaga, drive the Sun and Avocado route, or drive one of the many wine routes. Car rentals in Costa del Sol give you the freedom and flexibility to explore the region on your own terms, something that would not be the case with public transportation. In addition, public transport in Spain can be unreliable and have delays, so having a car rental will help you avoid unforeseen issues.

  • What is driving like in Costa del Sol?

    Driving in Costa del Sol is pretty straightforward. The roads, especially the toll road AP7, are generally in good condition. As you will be close to the coast, you may encounter some unpaved roads near the beaches, so it may be a good idea to rent a car with all-wheel drive to better navigate sandy or gravelly roads. Spanish drivers can be chaotic in city centers and may not always indicate their intentions, so drive with a watchful eye and be prepared for other drivers to make sudden and unexpected movements.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Costa del Sol?

    The minimum age to rent a vehicle in Spain is 21 years old. However, some car rental companies do not rent to drivers under the age of 25. Some may rent to those under 25 but you may have to pay a young driver’s fee. To rent a car in Spain, you need a valid driver’s license and a passport. You will also need a credit or debit card in your name for payment.
