Great deal, great serviceCheck-in was effortless (despite being a small airport and having a queue). I was offered an upgrade which I was smart enough to take. Car was like-new at 5,000km, even had GPS built in which was very useful!Renault has to workout some things about the media system - your phone can connect to Bluetooth but you won't hear anything unless you're in Media (not Nav or Radio) - including rings or voice navigation that come from the phone.

Hidden insurance costsDid not enjoy getting charged double to have appropriate insurance for the rental. Essentially doubled the promised price and left an extremely sour taste in my mouth for this "deal".

Top tips for hiring a car in Santander

  • Tailor your time in Santander exactly to your needs and preferences by renting a car and gaining maximum flexibility. Santander is nestled at the northern coast and invites visitors to explore not only the beautiful city, but also the surrounding beaches, villages, or a trip to the next bigger city, Bilbao, which is a 1-hour car ride away.
  • Seve Ballesteros-Santander Airport is a mere 4 miles from Santander center and hosts its own car hire center onsite, including companies like Hertz, Alamo, or Europcar. The easiest way to and from the airport to Santander is by car, so pick up your vehicle directly from there and be in the city in less than 15 minutes via the S-10.
  • Driving in and around Santander should be a pleasant experience mostly, as the road conditions are primarily great in Spain and there are only a few toll roads that are marked with a “P” after the “A”, which designates freeways (example AP-15) -- but they are not in Santander’s vicinity. In Santander it is also common to flash the headlights before passing on the freeway; this is not considered a sign of annoyance, but a form of communicating what they are about to do.
  • Despite the relaxed and laid-back atmosphere prevailing mostly on the roads in and around Santander, there are daily hours with increased traffic. In the mornings, it is usually between 7 and 9 am and in the evenings between 5 and 9 pm. As Santander is a highly frequented vacation destination, traffic also usually increases during the summer, especially around the beach areas.
  • Book your car hire in Santander at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Santander are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average
