Top tips for hiring a car in Costa Blanca

  • Having a car in Costa Blanca offers the flexibility to explore the region at your own pace. Unlike public transportation's limited schedules, a car allows you to come and go as you please. You can easily visit stunning coastal towns like Altea or Javea, which are not as accessible by bus or train. Additionally, you can venture into the scenic countryside and discover hidden gems like Guadalest or the Algar Waterfalls. Enjoy the freedom to go wherever your heart desires with Costa Blanca car hire.
  • When considering border crossings with a hired car in Costa Blanca, it's important to be aware of certain costs and documentation requirements. While Costa Blanca is in Spain, part of the Schengen Area, neighbouring countries like France and Portugal can be easily accessed without additional border fees.
