Spain is one of the most popular countries among domestic tourists. Sun, sea, cheap fruit and beautiful views are the perfect combination for a good holiday. More and more people prefer not to use the services of travel agencies, but to travel around the country on their own, and it is very convenient to do this with a rented car.

Step 1

Moving around the country in a rental car is a good solution for those who do not like to sit in one place, but want to have time to see as many interesting places as possible during their vacation. Naturally, to rent a car, you need to have a certain set of documents and money.

Step 2

To rent a car in Spain, you will need to present an international driving license, be over 21 years old and have 1-2 years of driving experience. The average cost of a rental car with a navigator will be 70-100 euros per day from such international companies as Europcar, Hertz, Avis. However, if you try, you can find options for 30 euros, for example, in the Spanish car rental company Gold Car.

Step 3

Insurance is usually included in the rental price. By the way, rental on weekends is usually cheaper. You can save money by booking your favorite car via the Internet. Please plan so that the car has to be returned on weekdays, otherwise there will be an additional premium to the price. Do not forget that the prices, if you rent a car at the airport, are always higher than in cities.

Step 4

As for the traffic regulations in Spain, it must be remembered that speed cameras are installed on almost all roads in the country. The speed limit when driving in the city is 50 kilometers per hour, outside the city - 90, and on the motorway - up to 120 kilometers per hour. Seat belts are required, as are child safety seats. It is forbidden to talk on a cell phone without using special devices. If it so happened that you still broke the rules, get ready for substantial fines, for example, a call on a mobile phone will cost 90 euros. Small fines can be paid on the spot, especially since it costs half the price.

Step 5

Like any major city in the world, Spanish metropolitan areas experience problems with parking spaces, especially during the height of the work week. Nevertheless, motorists have underground parking lots, parking zones (marked in blue), as well as a system that makes it possible to buy a parking ticket at a kiosk within 30-90 minutes. Remember that a yellow stripe on the sidewalk means that you cannot park there.
