Explore Northern Spain

In Spain the freewheeling experience becomes more challenging with driving on the right hand side of the road. Don’t be put off, roads and autobahns are well surfaced and clearly signposted. Most major roads do have tolls so it is often cheaper and more scenic to stay on the secondary roads.

Driving north from Madrid through the plains and mountains of Castilla y León to the cool Atlantic Ocean in the Basque, you will find a countryside full of wonderful culture and amazing architecture, centuries old, and shiny modern. Arch back through Rioja and Aragon past walled towns, cathedrals and palaces.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a compact size car for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.
