Car hire in the Costa Brava can make your holiday experience more interesting and enjoyable and can save you money. The availability of a car for the duration or part of your holiday can give you the choice of visiting some of the excellent beaches, medieval villages and attractions on the Costa Brava. Hiring a Car from Girona or Barcelona airport is a good way of saving on transfers to your hotel, apartment or villa. The cost can be the same as two taxis in either direction, with the benefit of a car for the duration of your holiday.
The choice of car hire at Girona Airport are Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Auriga Crown, Goldcar Europa, Sol Mar and Atesa. At Barcelona airport the choice is greater with most of the car rental companies operating there. The location of the car hire companies is either located at the airports or a short bus ride away, making picking up your car a trouble free experience.
Some things to consider to for your rental experience is to make sure the car you choose is big enough for all your cases!! Secondly to make the driving simpler, consider an automatic, however you will likely pay more for this option. Always check the car thoroughly before you set off and report all bumps or scratches to avoid any mix up on your return.
Some points to think about before you drive off in your rental car
1. Make sure you check the car over for any bumps and scratches and report any you find to the rental company, making sure they identify the prblems on the rental agreement
2. Be aware of the fuel policy before you arrive at the car hire desk. This will save you a good deal of stress and allow you to start your holiday in the right frame of mind. It is usual to be asked to pay for a full tank of petrol, which is usually at a high rate and it is unlikely that you will use all the petrol.
3. Make sure you understand the insurance and what you have and have not paid for. It is likely you will be asked to top up your insurance. Research before had to find out if this is necessary and if you can pay it (probably at a reduced rate) at the time of booking.
