Can I pick up and return in different locations? 
Yes, you can pick up and deliver the rental car at different locations in Spain, but at a fee. The cost depends on the distance, as the rental car often has to be transported back to pickup location.
Where at the airport can I pick up the rental car?
You pick up the car at the office of our partner on the current airport. In most Spanish airports, we use offices directly in arrivals hall in areas designated for rental cars. You’ll find details about your specific location in your booking confirmation
Why is the car located outside of the airport in some destination?
At some smaller airports you will not find the desk to the branch office inside the airport. The reason is limited space in the terminals, long queues and waiting. They have moved the office out of the airport, but it`s still in the airport area. In your booking confirmation you will find details of where you can pick up your car.
How many km or miles are included in the price? 
There are no restrictions on milage.

How old must I be to rent a car?
The minimum age of the driver is 21 years, and the maximum is 79 years. Note that drivers between 21 and 24 years are required to purchase an additional insurance.

During reservation of a rentacar you will be requested for the number of your flight. If you have it available enter it along with your personal details. This way we are able to see if your flight is delayed and we hold the car for you.

The insurance includes personal-, theft-, and third party insurance. The insurance does not cover damages to tires, undercarriage, windows, locks and interior. Maximum excess depend on the model of the car. Additional insurance without excess is available and can be selected among the extras offered while making your reservation. Note that without additional insurance, you might be required a deposit from your credit card. This is refunded when the car is returned free of damage.

The only additional cost is fuel. Our prices include taxes, VAT (IVA), airport supplement and insurance.
Fuel policy
You collect the rental car with the tank full, and it should be returned with the tank empty, as there are no refunds. For rental periods of 3 days or less, the amount will be refunded, as long as the vehicle returns with full tank (min 95%).

It`s important that the vehicle is returned on time. If the car is returned more than one hour to late you could be charged for an extra rental day.
