    This is a simplified map of the area. You can easily locate the Alicante Airport, the railway station and all the different locations where you can hire a car. This is a very useful map: it identifies the main car hire companies in each location, in the airport or nearby, as well as the nearest petrol station.

    Most arrivals to the province of Alicante are made through the Alicante Airport and the AVE-RENFE railway station of Alicante. Alicante airport is one of the most important airports in Spain specially because it's very well connected to many European cities. Due to tourist influx, the most important car hire companies are located in and around the airport. As a result, there is fierce rivalry between them which is very good news for you since it means lower prices!

    Whether you arrive by plane or train, the fastest option is to hire a car in the airport or railway station. But it would also be interesting for you to hire a car in another city close to it or even to hire it in one office and drop it of in another. You can compare the different options and choose the best one for you with this super guide.

    Rent the same car, the same day, from the same company and the price varies depending on the location from which you rent it. Even in the same province.

    You can see an example of these prices changes in this chart. How do we do it? We look for the same car and the same period of time, and we compare those results with the airport prices.

    So, hiring a Ford Fiesta (or similar) costs 62 € in Goldcar in the airport of Alicante, and the same car would be 48€ more expensive in Denia. On the other hand, hiring a car similar to a Fiat 500 is 49 € cheaper in Benidorm than in the airport with Europcar.
