It is difficult to imagine a modern journey without a personal car. However, traveling by private car to Spain or any other country chosen for recreation is a difficult adventure. You'll have to spend a lot of time on route selection, idle in customs queues and moving along endless routes. Also, this idea is expensive - European fuel prices differ significantly from domestic ones, besides, there will be several times to stay overnight. The same high-speed autobahns are not free. It is much more profitable to fly by plane, reserving apartments and transport for the entire rest period.
Carchering is an old and common system practiced practically all over the world. For several years of existence, some rules and limitations have been worked out. In Spain, this type of provision of transport is not too different from similar in other regions, but still has its own characteristics. In advance it is necessary to prepare not only a debit bank card for settlement in shops, restaurants or hotels, but also a credit card, without which registration is almost impossible. Also pay attention to age and driving experience. So a motorist should be at least 21 years old and have at least two years of active management experience. It is desirable to acquire international standard rights. When concluding an agreement with a tenant, they may not be useful, but it is better to have them if there is a need to communicate with local law enforcement officials. For the same and the passport.
Spain is primarily a serious tourist center, this directly affects the level of service. There is a misconception that renting is expensive and landlords only provide luxury cars.

For small tours it will be enough to rent a Fiat 500.
A small fuel consumption allows you to overcome the distances between resort towns without much expense. Given the cost of fuel at gas stations, the Fiat 500 is the most profitable. The average price tag is 29-35 euros per day.
A bit more expensive will be the familiar to all and no less popular MINI. At a price of 40-50 euros (depending on the day of the week) you can get a small and at the same time comfortable car with a large trunk. Its power is more than enough for high-speed autobahns.
