Good to know when you’re visiting Spain

One-Way Car Hire

It is often possible to leave the car in a different city or even another country, use the booking tool to see availability, this is not possible between the islands.  

Under-25 Car Hire

In Spain the minimum age to hire a car is only 18 years old! We have excellent economy class cars for younger drivers available, but there is a charge for drivers under 23.  

Payment Methods

If you hire a car with us in Spain any major credit can be used, including American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard and Visa.  

Licence Requirements

UK licences are accepted as normal, while Non-EU driver licences are accepted if you have a valid visa, if you have been in Europe more than 6 moths you must have an EU licence (besides Switzerland). 

Driving Tips

In Spain you must drive on the right-hand lane and speaking on mobiles while driving is strictly forbidden, cars will flash their headlights to indicate they will overtake you.  


In Spain you can pay tolls with cash or credit card, generally when you enter one toll you will receive a ticket to pay at the next toll.  

Best places to visit in Spain

  • Madrid: Soak up the culture of the Prado and Reina Sofia museums in Atocha before taking a stroll in the relaxing Retiro park. Take your SIXT car a bit further afield to the mountains of Manzanares El Real where you can be amongst nature in a historic town. 
  • Palma de Mallorca: Gaze in amazement at the architectural feat of its cathedral. Enjoy some time at the beautiful beach in the hip district of Portixol before driving to the historic town of Sóller in the mountains.  
  • Seville: With architecture that will blow your mind, including the delightful Plaza de España in Parque de Maria Luisa. Get a different perspective and hire a kayak out along the Guadalquivir river, before enjoying a spot of Flamenco in the evening

Benjamin was very friendly, patient and helpful. He was able to accommodate us last minute without a prior booking. I booked a car with Enterprise but I was denied a rental because I didn’t have an international driver’s license (the website did not specify that I needed to have one). Sixt recommends to have international driver’s license but doesn’t not require it to rent a car. Their car was clean and very comfortable. The return process took only a few minutes. Overall, I had a great experience with the company and would recommend using it.

Aidan G.
