Alicante Car Hire

By Daniel Spinozas

Like most cities in Spain, Alicante faces a lot of difficulties when it comes to transport. Alicante car hire facilities are now more detailed and complete but are still not very easy to master. It is a lot more complex than it seems at the first encounter.

Tourists expect that a popular vacation spot would have all facilities available and easily acquired. However, this is not always possible. Unsuspecting tourists are not expecting problems in the simple facilities like hiring cars and accommodation when they visit a popular tourist city. This leads to many unpleasant experiences and sometimes even ruins the whole vacation.

Alicante too is, sadly, one of these exceptions and for this precise reason, many of the tourists who make ill researched choices before visiting Alicante end up relating harrowing stories, stains upon the picture that Alicante provides to the outside world. Alicante’s Achilles heel, though, is not a terrible gastronomy or inhospitable hosts, instead, it is the highly devolved transport system that Alicante has in place and that the entire region suffers from.

To hire a car in Alicante, visitors not only need to thoroughly research the car hire offerings in Alicante, they also need to make informed and careful choices based on intimate knowledge of the workings and the culture of Alicante. The first step to the process, however, is of course carefully researching the available choices. The easiest way to go about this is to ask your travel agent to do the dirty work for you, the more recommended method, of course, is to do the job yourself. Some good pointers about where to start from would be, obviously, the internet. You can look up the rents charged by most of the reputable Car Rentals this way and decide accordingly. Another option, also an easy way out, is to go the evergreen way of taking the bundle packages offered by hotels and airway services, which include car hire.

The next step, however, requires a little more effort and planning than the first one, and is as such a little more complicated than the first step. To make a wise Alicante Car Hire choice, it is imperative to know the seasons and tides that Alicante turns over the course of a year. For instance, because mid to late summer is always a season full of festivities in Alicante, it attracts many tourists and car hire prices are significantly higher than they what they are in other seasons. Therefore, it is always better to pre-hire a car several months earlier if you are going to be visiting Alicante during these seasons. Similarly, another consideration to make would be to consider the car hire rents charged by rentals over a period of time. For instance, many car rentals charge significantly more if you hire a car on a daily basis instead of if you hire one on a weekly basis.

The last, but not least, important step in ensuring a good vacation is to make sure your hired car meets you at the earliest. Most companies will hand over the car to you at the airport as soon as you arrive. However, it must be mentioned in order to avoid any misunderstandings. After you get the car, check it for any scratches or running problems before you sign anything. Make sure you have it written down if there are any damages. Many people have had to pay extra for scratches that were already there.
