Madrid Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Madrid is a fascinating city to visit. From its imperial architecture to the holy trinity of art museums (Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza), colorful neighborhoods, and one of the most famous football rivalries in the world, the city has something special for every visitor. But the other appeal of Madrid is that it is located in the heart of the country, so plenty of other interesting destinations are just a short drive away. With that in mind, here are three ideas  for day trips from Madrid:

  • Toledo. Located on the banks of the Tagus River, Toledo is known as the Imperial City and also the City of Three Cultures. Christians, Jews, and Muslims have ruled over the city at different times, all leaving their mark on its culture and character. From the Gothic Toledo Cathedral to the Synagogue of El Tránsito and Mosque of Cristo de la Luz, the city has plenty of religious landmarks, as well as other highlights like the El Greco Museum. Every building and sidestreet breathes history. Located about 75 km (46 miles) south of Madrid, Toledo can be reached in about one hour.
  • Ávila. Another noticeable historical destination, Ávila’s main claim to fame is its old town. Often called the best-preserved historic city center in all of Spain, it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Surrounded by impressive walls that are themselves one of the city’s main attractions, the old town is home to a number of landmarks, not least of which is the Cathedral of the Saviour that’s about 900 years old. Located about 110 km (68 miles) northwest of the capital, Ávila can be reached in 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  • Guadarrama National Park. Large and scenic, Guadarrama is the most noticeable nature preserve near Madrid. Named after the mountain range that stretches through the park, Guadarrama is characterized by its snowy peaks, woodlands, small highland lakes, and hiking and climbing opportunities. The area is also home to a lot of birds, not least of which are the Alpine chough and black vulture. Located 120 km (75 miles) northwest of the capital near the medieval city of Segovia, the national park can be reached in about 90 minutes.

Being unfamiliar with the vehicle and the complexity of configuring the vehicle defaults, the default settings were annoying. The NAV volumen setting was set to 0 (zero), and was blocking the Google Maps interactive voice instructions, and the strict (really annoying beeping) alert OUT-OF-LANE track setting should be adjusted by the car rental as they are familiar with the vehicle.

I used the car to visit Segovia, Avila, El Escorial and Toledo. These are all wonderful historic places but just a bit too far out of Madrid to do on a day trip, so travelling between them by car really provided me with a great holiday

As long as the Covid alarm lasts make sure the car rental company that provides the car is located at the airport. Otherwise, you might be faced with irregular shuttle service. I ended up paying an additional 20€ to the premises of OK Rental outside the airport
