You’ll find them all over the city so it’s a good idea to choose a budget car rental in Spain to make sightseeing a breeze for you.

Indulge your eyes with the beautiful azure waters off North-eastern Spain and head to the must see Spain coast of Costa Brava. This long stretch of coastline boasts some beautiful golden beaches, secretive coves tucked away and sparkling blue-green waters. It’s also fairly easy to get to so if you’re planning to get direct flights to Spain, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and sort out transport to get around.

Salamanca and Segovia
As well as the stunning coastal views, Spain also boasts some incredible historical sights too – and the dual heritage towns of Salamanca and Segovia show quite a different side of the country. Head across Spain by car to see the inspiring remains of ancient architecture here – built in the characteristic hues of sandstone.
You’ll find a towering Roman aqueduct, medieval taverns and churches, that are all fascinating to explore. There are plenty of hotels in Spain in this area and it’s worth spending a bit of time here, as Salamanca is especially thriving with cultural life. Explore the heritage sights by day – and enjoy the nightlife after dark!
Quite possibly the prettiest must see seaside town in Spain, Cudillero is a tiny village on the coast of Northern Spain. When traveling through Spin by car, this small village is easy to get to, and worthwhile spot to visit.
The village perfectly captures Spain’s vibrant, colorful and charming atmosphere, with beautiful turquoise waters filled with traditional fishing boats, as well as brightly colored buildings around the bay, with a picturesque backdrop of rolling green hills.
As might be expected from a traditional fishing village, you’ll find some exceptional sea food here. At the end of the day, enjoy a leisurely stroll to the cliff top to catch the sunset and a great view of the whole village.
