What are car hire brokers and low-cost rental firms?

Car-hire brokers are just ike travel agents, only specialising in car hir. They are intermediaries who find and negotiate the cheapest rates possible with the car-hire companies that actually provide the rental cars.
    For example, if you choose a car from Holiday Autos the vehicle you pick up may well actually be sourced from  Avis,  Budget ,  Europcar  , or some other well-known name... only at the special rate not available to people booking directly. You may even pick your car up at the Avis or Europcar desk. And the others work in the same way.
        There are also other local low-cost operators, working as selected locations in Spain. For these, you may pick your car up directly at the airport; alternatively, you may have to phone a local number once you reach the airport, and someone will come and pick you up to drive you to the car-hire park a short distance away from the airport.

 To book your hire car in Spain...

      Choose where you want to pick up your car from the drop-down list in the search box above.
     Select your dates  and the clas of car you want (mini, economy, compact, limousine etc)
     ► Specify driver age and preferred currency, and hit search.

     NB:  low-cost car hire operators may allow for pick up and drop-off at different locations within Spain if this is what you are looking for.
     Do not use this box if you want to pick up a rental car in Spain and return it in another country. Use one of the big international operators.such as Hertz or Europcar.

Car hire in Spain : important information :

To hire a car in Spain you must be at least 21 years old, though some car hire operators may have a higher minimum age.  You must hold a valid drivers license from your country of origin.
You will need to show this license when picking up your vehicle.
Drivers from other European Union countries and some other countries do not need an International driving licence.  However they may need to show a passport or national identity card.

About-Spain.net is not a car hire company, nor a broker, and is not party to any car-rental transaction that you may make.
From this page, you will be directed to a third-party site, Holiday-Autos, a UK-based broker working with reputable car-hire operators and throughout Spain and worldwide.  Travellers are reminded that it is unusual for car hire companies to guarantee a specific model of car; in virtually all cases, advanced bookings will guarantee a particular  type of car (compact, economy, SUV, etc.), but not a specific model. This is true even with the largest operators, except when specific  terms of the vehicle rental contract allow the hirer to specify a particular make of vehicle and/or  model.
