Car rental and other expenses in Spain
Spain is a country of summer. The Spaniards themselves say that the sun shines here six days a week. Not surprisingly, it is among the top most popular tourist destinations. In order to plan your vacation or business trip here, it will not be superfluous to familiarize yourself with the pricing policy of the tourist mecca. We have learned for you the approximate prices for the main expense items in Madrid.
Of course, the bulk of the cost - is the payment of housing. For a room for two in a normal hostel, you will give about 28 Euro, and for a similar suite in a 4-star hotel - 78. Prices for decent rooms in a good hotel start from 150 Euro.
Another option is to rent an apartment. It will cost you an average of 64 EUR per day or 580 per month. Do not forget that this does not include utility payments and payment for using the Internet.
Eating in Spain can be varied and very tasty - the cuisine of this country is one of the richest in seafood. Developed tourist infrastructure offers guests a menu of the capital, ranging from a burger at McDonalds, and ending with oysters in a chic restaurant. Be sure to try the white Spanish wine paella and buy a good jamon on the market. The average check in a regular restaurant starts from 20 Euros per person, in a diner - from 9. A cup of coffee with milk costs around 1.7 EUR, which, as experienced tourists rightly say, is a penny in comparison with other European capitals.
When buying products, try not to go to online stores, but to the markets and local shops - there will always be the most delicious and fresh delicacies. As for the prices: water of 0.5 l costs 0.45 EUR, a bottle of wine - 3.75, jamon from 20, and cheese - from 8.
The next cost item for visitors to the Kingdom is transportation. You can travel by public transport, but it is not very convenient or rent a car for 1 day or for a week. Of course, those who rent a car - there are several huge advantages of renting from being able to move freely in the city and its surroundings, without being attached to transport, to being able to see and catch much more. And of course you should not forget about the banal comfort and travel in a hot climate with air conditioning. If you decide to rent a car, do it immediately upon arrival in Atocha or arrival in Barajas - so you will save time on the transfer to the apartment or hotel.
The cost of renting a car per day or per week depends on many factors, including the place of supply and the brand of car. For example, renting a BMW 4 Convertible cabrio with a supply to Atochu will cost 67.75 Euros per day or 474.24 Euros for 7 days, and the Opel Corsa is 2.5 times cheaper. But at the same time a cabrio with a rental in Atocha is luxury prestige.
