Car Hire - Alicante Airport
The gateway to the glorious Costa Blanca is Alicante Airport, located 9 miles south of the city at El Altet. This is the 6th busiest airport on Mainland Spain and at peak times welcomes more than 26,000 visitors a day. Whilst this area is best known for buzzing resort of Benidorm, the area is awash with smaller villages and towns that are well worth exploring during your time here, and the best way to do this is to hire a car through One Stop Car Hire and collect it at the airport when you arrive.
The car rental desks are very easy to find at Alicante airport. Once you have passed through customs and collected your luggage they can be seen straight away, and are also well sign posted. All the top names in the car rental sector can be found here, and we deal with the best of them. Once you have collected your car and left the airport, turn right and you will find yourself on the main N-332 motorway which is the main route right along the Costa Blanca coast.
This, combined with a network of excellent roads, gives you the freedom to fully explore this stunning area of mainland Spain. Whether you are staying in Alicante, Benidorm, or one of the many picturesque resorts that pepper the coastline, you will find driving a pleasure. You can be at your base, get unpacked, and hit the road exploring while your hapless fellow travellers are still trundling along in their bus waiting to reach their hotels.
Pretty towns such as El Campello, Calpe, Moraira and many more are all at your disposal when you have a hire car. One thing to note is that Spain has more toll roads than most other European countries so its worthwhile checking out in advance if you are going to hit one of these road and can have change ready. There are less in this area than most other regions are in Spain but it always pays to be prepared.
Escaping the hustle and bustle of the main resorts to see the real Spain is a real joy. Picturesque coves, stunning villages and food to die for, it really doesn't get much better than this. This is the real Spain away from the crowds, and a hugely enriching experience for those who take the trouble to get out and about and see what is on offer.
If you are thinking about just getting a car when you arrive at Alicante you should seriously reconsider. This is an extremely busy airport and the cars get snapped up fast. By booking in advance not only can you relax in the knowledge that the car you need is awaiting your collection. If you need a family car why run the risk of only being able to get a small, city car by not planning in advance, and vice versa. We will not only guarantee that the choice you make will be the car you get but also that you will get the best deal.
