Your journey starts here
Explore Madrid by road with Avis, alternating between cobbled lanes and modern boulevards. While culture vultures will admire the masterpieces of the Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums, others will get their fix junk shopping at the Rastro.
Rent a rowboat at the 350-acre Parque del Retiro and gather an appetite among its 15,000 trees, rose garden and art galleries – you’ll need one. Lengthy Madrid evenings begin with “tapeo”, where people trundle from one tapas bar to another before choosing a restaurant café to unwind from the day. Then perhaps a drink at an outdoor cafe … or a club.
Remember, you don’t have to drive full-circle: make the most of one way car hire across Spain.
Drive 30 miles north of Madrid and you’ll hit a colossal granite fortress, the Real Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial. The 16th century monastery houses a wealth of paintings and tapestries.
From Cercedilla, an hour’s drive northeast of the capital, graded walking trails lead up into the Guadarrama Mountains.
Elsewhere in Spain, discover the crazily cultural northern hubs of Barcelona and Bilbao while not forgetting the rocky, cliff-edged Costa Brava running up to the French border. Take in the Roman heritage of Segovia on your way to the sun-baked plains of Andalucía. Visit medieval gem Córdoba, then Seville – for Flamenco and yet more tapas – before gazing up at the snow-capped Sierra Nevada which peaks between Granada and Malaga.

“I want to hire a car that excites me. It must be nearby. I want no fuss, but every comfort. I want to feel noticed and be remembered. Above all, I want to drive the open road with a smile on my face.”
We understand. That’s why we try harder.
