Driving a hire car in Spain?
Things we think you should know before driving off in your hire car;
Speed limits in Spain:
Speed limits in the Spain are measured in KPH (Kilometers per Hour)
Make sure you check the road signs, as speeds restrictions can change. You will be responsible
for paying for any speeding ticket whilest driving a hire car.

Seat belts in hire cars in Spain:
All drivers and passengers renting a car in Spain must wear a seat belt. To sit in the front of a hire car, children under 12 years of age must be seated in an approved child seat.
Driving licence requirement in Spain;
EC format pink/green licences are accepted; old-style green or non-European licence
must be accompanied with an International Driving Permit.
Fuel in Spain;
The Government regulates fuel prices in Spain, so there is no need to shop around to
fill your hire car in Spain. Credit cards are accepted in most, but not all garages
in Spain. Regular leaded petrol (gasolina sin plomo) has an octane rating of 92; the
octane rating of super is 97. Diesel is called gas-oil. LPG is called gases licuados
Parking a hire car in Spain;
As in all unfamiliar countries the best advice is to check first before you incur a fine or worse!
Zona ORA's are quite common in city centres and require a ticket, purchased from a tobacconist, for parking between 30 and 90 minutes.
Zona Azul (blue zone) are also common and require a ticket from hotels, travel agents or town halls.
In some cities a blue line on the street indicates resident-only parking; in other cities, check for instructions on signs.
Don't leave anything valuable in your parked hire car. Parking garages are a safer alternative to the street, but check the prices before you enter.
On one-way streets, parking is allowed on even dates along the side with even addresses and on odd dates along the side with odd addresses;
in both cases, park in the direction of traffic flow. Parking is prohibited within 5 metres of intersections or
entrances to public buildings.
Trafic rules to be aware of while driving your hire car in Spain;
Generally, traffic on the right has priority. Normally where a minor road intersects a major road there's a sign reading Stop or Ceda el Paso (give way); if such a sign is not in place, the traffic on the major road still has priority.
All hire cars must turn on their headlights in tunnels. Motorcycles must have headlights on during the day and night. In built-up areas horns may be used only in cases of immediate and extreme danger. Alternatively flash the headlights of your rental car instead.
When overtaking or passing a vehicle you must use your indicators to let other motorists know your intentions. If a vehicle comes up behind you signalling that it wants to pass and if you see that the road ahead is clear, you must signal with your vehicle's right indicator to acknowledge the situation.
Under no circumstances drink and drive in your hire car in Spain.
On the outskirts of many towns are sensors which detect the speed of your rental car as you approach the town.
If you're going over the speed limit, a traffic light at the edge of the town is automatically
turned to red so that you must come to a stop before entering the town. Two red lights mean
Fines in your hire car;
If you are unfortunate enough to be fined for a motoring offence you will have to pay on the spot unless you can present a bail bond or a Spanish guarantor. Failure to pay will result
in the Spanish hire car being impounded and the driver detained. There's usually a discount of 20 percent
for immediate settlement. The police will issue a Boletin de Denuncia which specifies the
offence committed in your rented car and the amount of the fine. Check carefully that the fine
amount noted on the document matches the amount you paid. Follow the English instructions on
the back of the document if you want to dispute the charge within 15 days.
Tolls you may encounter whilest driving a hire car;
Tolls are payable on motorways, at toll booths on the motorway network :
