    Driving in Spain

    There is no other to explore the vibrant and culturally rich country of Spain than in a car hire booked with Auto Europe. Spain boasts a well-maintained system of roads making it easy to travel from vibrant city to charming villages as well as travelling along the breathtaking coastline. Visit the lively beaches of Costa Del Sol and Majorca, or listen to the unforgettable sounds of flamenco in Seville, wonder at the stunning architecture in Barcelona and Toledo.

    Car Hires in SpainFrom Barcelona to Santiago to Valenica, having a car hire makes viewing Spain easy. Make time to stop off at the Tower of Hercules a lighthouse which has been standing, and functioning, since 98 - 117AD. The structure is 55 metres tall and offers a stunning view of the North Atlantic coastline of Spain.

    Spain has many national parks, stop off at the Picos de Europa or the Parque de la Naturaleza de Cabarceno to get back in touch with nature. Visit the regions that are located in these parks and view Spain in a way that only the locals do, all while in the comfort of your own vehicle hire.

    Country Essentials

    With the driver sitting on the left-hand side of the vehicle, the Spanish drive on the right-hand side of the road, which is the opposite of how you normally drive in New Zealand. Since it is different from what you might be used to we advise you take some time to get used to driving on a different side of the road and familiarise yourself with the vehicle and controls before driving off. The speed limit in Spain varies. On motorways, the speed limit is 120km/hr and in built-up areas it is usually 50km/hr

    A popular option with our New Zealand clients is to travel with children. Children need to be over the age of 12 years and over 1.35m before they can travel without a car seat. We are happy to provide you with a child seat, which will be available with your vehicle hire on arrival or feel free to take your own. In addition to a full, valid New Zealand's driver's licence an International Driving Permits is required to drive in Spain. For additional information on driving in Spain, we encourage our clients to refer to our specialised Spain Driving Information page.

    Standard Inclusions

    Auto Europe includes the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection in Spanish car hire prices. The CDW and theft protection reduce the liability and excess of the driver to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in the price of your car hire. Excess Refund Insurance can be purchased from Auto Europe when you make your booking. This insurance refunds your excess costs up to $5000 should any damage occur to the vehicles over the duration of your auto hire.

    Licence Requirements

    The minimum driving age in Spain is 18, however, most car hire companies impose a minimum driver age of 21. The driver must hold a full New Zealand driver's licence and there is an additional fee for drivers' under 25 years of age with most car hire suppliers, this is to cover higher insurance premiums. Most suppliers have strong no upper age limit providing you hold a full drivers licence.

    Tolls and Freeways

    There are two types of motorways in the Spanish motorway network, these are 'autopistas' and 'autovias'. Autovias are not toll roads and Autopistas are, these are easily recognised as they are ladled with an A. Please watch out when driving because the autopistas can have quite high tolls compared to other European motorway networks. If desired, you can avoid most of the toll roads, as only about one-fifth of the motorways are tolled.

    Border Crossings

    With internal borders fading it is now very straightforward to drive through all of Western Europe with very little complications. Border crossings are simple thanks to tourism VISA waiver programmes and the evolution of the EU. Some suppliers and vehicle types, such as luxury cars, have restrictions in place when it comes to crossing borders. Always make sure to check your itinerary at the time of booking to make sure border crossing is permitted with the supplier and car type you would like to hire. Please note if you are planning to drive your car to Eastern Europe there may be restrictions and/or additional costs, and you must say at the time of booking and picking up the car from the supplier. The costs are usually to cover increased insurance premiums.
