5 tips to make a road trip around Spain with your rental car | Cheap Malaga Car Hire
Travelling in a rental car can have many advantages, we know that. But we also understand that doing a road trip around Spain without the proper advice… It could be a fiasco!
That’s why we want to help you in this post so you can prepare the perfect trip of your dreams.
You ready to go?
Here is all you need for a road trip around Spain
We’ll start with something very basic but essential, take paper and pen.
1. Choose the right car for you
Not all car journeys around Spain are the same. Perhaps you need a bigger car if you plan to surf in Tarifa, or you want something smaller and more comfortable if you want to park in the streets of Barcelona.
A sports car or a ranchera? A van or a pick-up? A sedan or a convertible? It will always depend on several factors, such as the climate of the chosen route or the number of people who make the trip.
2. Don’t forget your favorite music
Because to make a road trip without music is better to stay at home, do not forget to make your lists of songs and if you are accompanied, better to reach an agreement with other travellers to avoid a musical war in full route.
We will soon make a post about some music you would enjoy while you drive. 😉
3. Plan a little bit of the route you’re going to take
The fun of a road trip around Spain is to get lost, but you have to keep in mind where you want to go.
In order to avoid unnecessary petrol costs that are not your own choice.
If you do not have any planned itineraries, it is very important to at least ask yourself relevant questions such as where and when I want to travel.
Consider the best time to visit a particular country. For example, if you want to visit the south of Spain in the middle of summer, we advise you not to spend too much time in the car, especially if the temperatures reach 40 degrees.
4. The more drivers, the better
Unless you’re going alone as a “lone ranger”, it’s a bad idea to have only one driver in the car. In fact, the ideal is for all travelers to drive so they can take turns and lighten the burden of driving and please be a good co-driver!
5. Choose travel companions you’re comfortable with
This is a very important point in a road trip, as you will spend a lot of time with the same people in the same space.
It is obvious that you have to choose companions with the same tastes and intentions and have discussed a general plan of the trip where everyone agrees.
In our experience, the best way to save money is to travel with 3 or 4 people, but to agree on 2 is sometimes too much, so it is best to agree before you start your trip!
We hope you enjoy your trip and that these tips for your road trip around Spain have been useful.
Sometimes the most obvious things are the most important, so it’s a good idea to get properly informed about the technical process your car may need.
Travel safe!! 😀
