Car Rentals in Spain
If you are visiting Marbella and you want to get around, you will probably want to hire a car. There are of course many car rental companies in the Málaga region and it is extremely important to choose one that offers value for money and provides the support you need if you encounter problems.
We cannot recommend a specific car rental firm because we don´t know your individual requirements, but we can provide you with a few tips to help you choose the best car rental company for you.
The first thing to do is check the price comparison websites. Make sure the price you end up with covers all your needs – some firms will withhold information about add-ons until you go to pick up the car.
If you are dealing through a broker, try to find out the name of the provider. In some cases, but not all, it may be cheaper to deal directly with the company providing the car. Don´t rely on deals through the airline you are travelling with. These will, in most cases, be more expensive than booking direct with the car rental company.
Make sure you are comparing on a like for like basis. The cheapest deal may not provide everything you need and this could be a false economy. Make sure you understand the insurance cover you are being offered. It may turn out to be a problem if you think you are covered for something and you are not.
Make sure all your party are covered and check on who is able to drive the car. Pay particular attention to the amount of any excess you may be required to pay and the circumstances. If you require additional cover, it may be better to acquire this separately. If you require extras such as child seats, roof racks, etc., book these in advance so that they are included in the price.
Inspect the car´s bodywork before accepting the car. You won´t want to be held responsible for any damage to the car which is not your fault. If you have to return the car with a full tank of petrol, make sure you know where the nearest petrol station is.
We hope this is of help.
