Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Alicante Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Alicante Airport! Then drive to the city center to take in all the beautiful architecture in Old Town. While you’re there, visit museums like the Archeological Museum of Alicante, the Asegurada Museum of Modern Art, and the Gravina Museum of Fine Arts. Then drive your rental up Benacatil Mountain to the Santa Barbara Castle, built in the 9th century, and enjoy the fantastic views of Alicante and the bay.

But, Alicante is best known for its beautiful beaches. Postiguet Beach is the most famous and offers lots of fun things do. San Juan Beach, a bit farther from the center, is less built up and crowded. If you’re up for an adventure, park your rental at the port and catch a ferry to Tabarca Island. It’s a beautiful place, almost frozen in time. Enjoy the natural beauty but make sure to prepare before you go because there are no ATMs on the island!

Alicante is a great destination, but the surrounding region has even more to offer. So why not get a longer term car rental? You can go north to Barcelona, drive down the Mediterranean coast, or head inland to explore the Spanish countryside. You can even pick up your rental car at Alicante Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your vacation today!

Alicante Airport is also called Alicante-Elche Airport, Aeropuerto de Alicante-Elche, and El Altet.

Popular one-way rentals

Be very careful when picking up and dropping off vehicles. The car park is poorly lit and some drivers drive too fast without due care and attention.
