You need to check with the Cheap Cars for rent agency beforehand to make sure you have the proper drivers license for driving in Spain. For Americans, agencies usually only require a valid passport (that means within the six month travel period allotted to Americans for travel in Europe) and a driver’s license. For Europeans your Drivers licence should be ok.
Some Cheapo Car Rental companies will hit your wallet for gas, kilometers, insurance, and additional drivers. Be sure to read the contact. Check this company to check current prices from a huge variety of Rent a Car companies in Spain.
You have to Read the small print and sign off on the dents and scratches on the car you rent. Mark the faults, dents or scrarches beforehand on piece of paper that includes a small illustration of a car and show to the office before leaving the Bilbao Airport office.
Always lock your doors, and do not leave your suitcase, purse, camera bag, or anything else of value in plain sight in your parked rental car. If you are unsure about what the rules are or where you can park in Bilbao, the best bet is to put your ride in a garage and pay a bit more.
Tip for Americans: Most rental cars in Spain (and throughout Europe) are equipped with manual transmission, and most Spaniards know how to drive a stick shift car. Automatic cars are the exception, not the rule, and you may have to pay hundreds of euros more to rent one.
Don’t forget to fill the car up (and with the right fuel!). Gas is self-service in Spain. You pay inside or at the pump with either a credit card or Euros.
