There are certain requirements that every individual has to meet when it comes to car hire. You may be asking yourself what these requirements are.
People Aged Under 21
The first requirement is to be in the correct age group. Car rental is not available to people under the age of twenty-one and in some cases twenty-five. There is currently no maximum age requirement.
All people who want to hire a car also have to be in possession of a current valid drivers’ license which they must present to the agent on duty on arrival. They will also want to see your passport and take an imprint of the credit card used to make the reservation. This gives them protection in case you fail to return the car on time, deal with traffic fines or have damaged the vehicle.
If you return the car more than two hours later than the time stated on the rental agreement you may be charged for an extra day rental.
Many car rental companies with allow you to put a named driver onto the rental agreement completely free of charge, but they also have to meet the minimum age requirements and possess a valid driver’s license.
On the subject of age requirements, many car rental companies will quote you subject to your age, meaning substantial savings can be made if the eldest in your household makes the car rental booking.
On the subject of traffic fines, you can take care of them yourself by presenting the fine at the local town hall or let the car rental firm know at the drop off of your hire car. The car hire company will usually then quietly deal with the matter at no expense to you. Of course if you fail to do so you will pay the fine later but with a nice surcharge on top.
Car Hire Insurances
You might be asking yourself if you have to bring the current insurance documents that you own for your motor vehicle at home. You do not have to bring these as included in the price of your car rental is a minimum insurance package.
What is included in this car rental insurance?
You will have a third party insurance which doesn’t cover medical expenses or smaller items such as tyres, windows, or keys. You can cover yourself for €3 a day or for longer trips €50 for the year. Especially if you are travelling with small children a good travel insurance policy is vital which will cover everything medical.
Is petrol included in the price of my rental?
That varies from company to company and you will decide for yourself what best suits you as you shop around. It is always best to return the car in the same condition you hired it, because if you return your vehicle empty when it was handed over with a full tank, you will pay for the filling and a nice surcharge on top it for having failed to do so.
Nearest Petrol Stations to Airports
Apart from securing the best car rental deal the question of petrol is important especially if you have booked a cheap late night flight. After 10pm petrol stations are generally closed and reopen at six the following day. The last thing you will want is to rent an empty car travelling to Vera Playa from Murcia Airport with no way of refuelling to get there.
The nearest petrol stations to Murcia Airport are in the town of San Javier, itself six kilometres away, while from Almeria Airport it is just less than a kilometre away on the way to Vera Playa.
Families with children have to look out for the following. Can I book a car seat for my baby or child or should I bring my own? Is the boot big enough for all the luggage and stroller? Depending on the carrier you can find yourself being charged for a car seat so you can book one at the same time as you make your car hire booking. Should you wait until you arrive in Spain you may find that they have all been rented out especially during the peak tourist season. Car seat rental starts from as little as €2 a day.
Breakdowns and Theft
What happens if my car breaks down? All rental vehicles come with a twenty-four hour breakdown cover which gives you great peace of mind.
If your car is stolen you will also be covered as theft protection is also included in the price of your weekly car rental.
What happens if I need to cancel my holiday or find a cheaper quote elsewhere? The more reputable car hire companies will have no cancellation fees and you can always ask the car rental company to match the quote.
Optional extras which can be booked at the time of making your booking includes snow chains and ski racks should you wish to go skiing in the Sierra Nevada. A GPS comes as standard in the more luxurious car rental models and can also be booked at the same time as booking your car hire or can be rented in the U.K. as well. GPS rental in Spain starts from as little as €5 a day.
