renting a car in Lisbon and driving to Bilbao (Spain)

Is this possible? I realize there will be a huge drop-off fee but I don't even know if it's POSSIBLE to take a rental car across the borders.

Not interested in trains or buses, we like to be on our own schedules and wander where we want.

thanks for any advice!

It's possible, but you must check the terms and conditions with the car hire hire company as many will make additional charges to cover insurance in another country.

An one way rental (ie dropoff in Bilbao) would likely be extremely expensive. The rental company has to send someone to bring the car back.
