Top tips for renting a car in Basque Country

  • Travelers who want to rent a car in Basque Country should consider using the Bilbao Airport (BIO), which is highly rated for car rental. This airport features various vehicle rental firms where you may rent a car at reasonable pricing and with excellent maintenance. Car rental companies such as Hertz, Alamo, Thrifty, Enterprise, and Budget can provide you with your car keys. These car rental agencies have offices on Level O of the main terminal, beside the parking park.
  • Before embarking on your adventure, always inspect the condition of your rental car, particularly the brakes, wheels, and steering. This can limit the number of unexpected incidents that may occur while driving a rental car in Basque Country. Please avoid letting emotions take over when driving on Basque Country roads, including the Belle Epoque Route, Medieval Trade Route, Salt Route, and Wine Route. Many pedestrians and bicyclists cross these streets without first checking for incoming vehicles.
  • The number of passengers and luggage you intend to transport inside the city will determine the sort of rental car that is most suitable for you. Consider using Economy if you are traveling alone with two bags. If you are traveling with five people and three pieces of luggage, an intermediate SUV is the best option to rent. If you are traveling with five persons and five pieces of luggage, you should select Luxury car rentals.
  • You will have difficulty driving car rentals in Basque Country during major events or festival seasons, such as Tamborrada at the beginning of the year and San Fermin and Fetes de Bayonne in July of every year. These celebrations cause the closure of city center roads and significant traffic flow in the city, which may cause delays in your car rental destination. If you want to travel between 7 am and 10 am or 3 pm and 6 pm, expect difficulties and significant traffic delays because these are Basque Country's rush hours. When driving on Basque Country's local roads, be prepared for difficulties due to various potholes, which may cause delays to your destination.
