Madrid car rental service
If you want to use a car renting service for your stay in Madrid I will give you some clues to find out the better, more convenient and cheapest car rental service.
There are several site that will give you the opportunity to compare prices, car models and extra services as insurance, gps, infant seats, car transmission (stick shift, automatic) or even type of engine (gasoline, gas oil or electric), etc.
The site that I recommend you are:
Both site work with major international brands like, Europcar, Avis, Hertz or Budget.
My personal advice is to take a look at all the clauses because sometimes the cheapest options have also specific clauses that you will find out when you pick up your car and you didn’t notice. I give you some clues like, do you have limited miles per day, you are the only person that can drives or you can designate a second driver, do you have a franchise in case of accident, glass breaking are cover, robbery, etc.
Be aware also that sometimes if you pay by credit card, the credit car insurance covers the location.
Once you have your car, I recommended you download two apps:
- Parclick: It is hard to park in Madrid center and sometimes even if you find a place you have time limitations or residents parking spaces. This app will show you the parking’s near you or close to the location you are hitting on. Another interesting thing is that you can reserve for a day and a range of hours so you are sure that you have a space.
- Waze: Maybe you already know it, Waze it’s a GPS app that will guide you thought Madrid. Is always up to date and take in considerations live traffic information. I personally use it even when I take a taxi. The only condition is that you have to have the data option activate in your smartphone. You will also have information about POI (points of interest) like gas stations, train stations, museums, parks, etc. I didn’t mentioned but this app covers all Europe, not only Madrid or Spain.
