Hire car touring in Alicante

  Car hire locations  

Alicante is the unofficial capital of the Costa Blanca, as millions of people pass through their way to holiday spots along the coast. Alicante is the Valencia region's second largest town.

It has done much to attract the waves of visitors who come there looking for the 'real' Spain. As its tourist income grows, Alicante will face the problem of how much tourism it can bear.

Alicante is not well supplied with public transport, but then again, it's so small you don't really need much apart from your own feet. To go further afield, rent a car.

How to make the most of rental car services in Spain

Alicante is one busy little place, millions of toruists a year pass through it, going from its airport to the holiday spots along the Costa Brava. Which is a bit sad, as Alicante itself has a lot to offer.

You are in a city with three thousand years of history behind it. The first settlements were centred around the slopes of mount Benacantil, occupied today by the castle of Santa Bárbara. Another settlement was located in the Benalúa area, where the Roman city of Lucentum was built, the predecessor of the city of Alicante today. Others villages from the same period have been located at the Albufereta and in the Serra Grossa. It was really in the 19th century when the town started to expand considerably. With the arrival of the railway in 1858, its linkage to the centre of the peninsula guaranteed its leading role as a port, giving it the cosmopolitan air of a maritime city. Today, Alicante is the second largest city in the Province of Valencia with a population of 261.255 (1991), a central location on the Costa Blanca, and now deriving much of its income from the tourist industry.

Minimum driving age is 18.

You can pick up a hire vehicle at a number of our locations on Costa del Sol. Conditions vary a little from place to place, but nothing too extraordinary. And if you'd like to ramble round a bit, perhaps a look first at our page, "Driving Regulations in Spain" would be a good start. Then Andalucia with its vineyards, famous horsemen and great scenery, awaits.
