Hiring a car could be the best way to travel around the country and explore the beautiful Spanish sites off the beaten track.

Whilst looking for the best deal it is also important to consider your safety and for this reason we only reccommend you rent a car in Spain with a reputable company and always make sure you are insured.

Driving Laws in Spain

If you have never driven in Spain before it is important to be aware of the driving laws. British and Australian drivers be sure to get on the right hand side of the road and take extra care when driving in Spain.

Drivers should be even more careful than normal when driving during Spanish National Holidays, as this is when the largest number of road accidents occur in Spain.

Drink driving is obviously illegal and alcohol consumption limits are set at 0.5 mg of alcohol per millilitre of blood, which is a lot lower than many other countries. Speeding can result in on the spot fining so be sure to abide by all speed limits:

Motorways: 120 km/ hour
Open Road: 90-100 km/ hour
Town: 50 km/ hour.
