    Frequently Asked Questions on Car Hire in Spain

    How Old Do You Need to be to Hire a Car in Spain?

    The minimum driving age in Spain is 18, however, most car hire companies impose a minimum driver age of 21. Driving must hold a full Australian driver’s licence and most car hire suppliers charge an additional fee for driver’s under 25 years of age to cover higher insurance premiums. A very popular option for drivers under 21 is to lease a vehicle on our Peugeot Lease Program. The minimum age to drive a Peugeot is 18 years with NO young drivers surcharge to pay. Most suppliers have no upper age limit providing you hold a full drivers licence.

    Do I Need an International Driving Permit in Spain?

    International Driving Permits are required in addition to a full, valid Australian driver’s licence. You must obtain the International Driving Permit before departure from Australia.

    Tips for Driving a Car Hire in Spain

    Car Hire Parking in Spain

    Parking rules in Spanish towns and cities are decided by the municipal authorities, and the system can vary between towns, neighbourhood and street. Pay & display parking operates in most cities. Parking is usually charged from 9 am to 2 pm and again from 4 pm to 9 pm during the week. Sundays and Public Car Hires SpainHolidays are usually free for parking.

    The closer to the city centre, you are likely to see signs stating Estacionamiento Prohibido, or an “E” with a diagonal line through it, which means parking in prohibited. In some streets, parking is permitted on one side of the road for the first half of the month (1st to 15th) and on the other side for the rest of the month.

    Driving Your Spain Car Hire Across Country Borders

    Border Crossings are simple thanks to tourism VISA waiver programmes and the evolution of the EU. Internal borders are fading and it is now very straightforward to drive throughout all of Western Europe with very little complications. There are restrictions in place on crossings borders by some suppliers and on some vehicle types, such as luxury cars. Check at the time of booking if your itinerary is permitted with the supplier and car type you would like to hire. Additionally, if you are planning to drive your car to Eastern Europe there may be restrictions and/or additional costs, and you must say at the time of booking and picking up the car from the supplier. The costs are usually to cover increased insurance premiums.
