Top tips for hiring a car in Galicia

  • When collecting your Galicia car hire, you may want to add some additional features to the vehicle to make it more comfortable. We recommend adding air conditioning to the vehicle, especially if you plan on visiting Galicia in summer, as it can get quite hot in the north of Spain. You may also want to add some easy access seats or ramps to help accessibility, and we recommend that you contact the car hire company directly to see what they have to offer. You could also add GPS to help you get around the local area without getting lost.
  • Most car hire companies are happy for you to collect the Galicia car hire in one place and drop it off in another, but you will have to specify where you are going to leave it off. Dropping off the car in a different location can be an efficient way to travel around Galicia, and we recommend it, especially if you plan on travelling without returning to the original point, but you may need to pay more if the destination is far away.
  • In general, the roads are good quality in Galicia. You can expect to find narrow roads in the towns and villages, with wider roads in the cities. The roads are well signposted, regularly showing speed limits and any other key information that you need while driving. If you plan on exploring outside the cities, then we recommend an SUV or 4x4 vehicle, so you can stay comfy, whereas if you want to zip around the city, a compact car is a great option that is easier to park.
  • Collecting your Galicia car hire in the airport or near the port can be a really easy way to continue your journey upon arrival in Galicia. You won’t have to wait for public transport, and you can start exploring Galicia within minutes of arriving. If you think that you are going to arrive later than originally planned, we recommend that you get in touch with the local hire company as soon as possible.
  • Book your car hire in Galicia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Galicia are around 35% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • Should I hire a car in Galicia?

    Hiring a car in Galicia is one of the best ways to explore this wonderful part of northern Spain. You are free to visit wherever you like by hiring a car, and you can make as many stops as you need on your way there. You won’t have to wait, restricted by the schedules of public transport as you set off on your adventure, and it can be more efficient, and maybe even cheaper, to split the cost of a hire car if you are travelling with a group of friends.

  • What is driving like in Galicia?

    In general, driving in Galicia is relatively easy compared to other countries. Of course, you will need to drive on the right-hand side of the road, and practise parking and manoeuvring the vehicle from the other side of the car. Galicia is well signposted, and you should follow the instructions on the signs, such as overtaking laws and speed limits, even if you see the locals ignoring these rules. Drivers in Spain may be a little more aggressive than those in the UK, but beeping your horn is not as common, and we recommend that you pay attention to lane-swapping vehicles, particularly on roundabouts.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Galicia?

    The legal driving age in Spain is 18, but most car hire companies in Galicia will require the named driver to be at least 21 to pick up the vehicle. Some car hire companies will even apply a young driver’s surcharge to any driver that is under 25. You will not need an International Driver’s Permit to drive a car unless your driving licence comes in a language with a different alphabet, such as Chinese or Arabic.
