2. Re: Car Hire

Beware the trend in Spain (an possibly elsewhere) to charge you for a full tank out assuming you'll bring it back empty; which usually means an effective extra charge of 30-40 euros unless you're driving great distances. Full-full is much better.

For that reason, we always use carhire3000.com, a UK-based broker who show fuelling policy on the 1st page of results so you can make an informed choice. In 20+ hires in Spain and Italy, we've found them cheap and reliable, and they often use spare capacity with mainstream renters like AVIS. Avoid rental companies' own overpriced excess insurance by arranging one=trip or annual cover with people like insurance4carhire.com so you don't get stung by the 500-1k Euro cost of a dent, glass or tyre damage
