Alicante Airport

Airport Car Hire

Famous as one of the main beach hubs of the famous Costa Blanca (or ‘White Coast’) and the larger Valencian Community, Alicante attracts thousands of visitors each year. Home to some of the most picturesque seaside in all of Spain, Alicante is also home to ancient history, interesting culture, and delicious cuisine. Here’s the pick of the main attractions that you can easily reach from Alicante if you hire a car: 

  • Elche. The next-door neighbour of Alicante, Elche (or Elx, as it’s known in the local dialect) is used to getting fewer visitors because of its inland location. But if you take the 30 minute trip to this charming, slow-paced city, you’ll get a chance to marvel at the beautiful Elche palm gardens (the only ones in Europe), visit many high-quality archaeological museums, or visit the Banys Àrabs, the subterranean 12th-century baths now turned tourist attraction. 
  • Torrevieja. Of the many picturesque coastal towns that dot the Costa Blanca, Torrevieja might just be the most famous one. Its beautiful beaches are no secret, as well as its coastal cliffs and coves, many of which can be accessed by tourists. But the town is also home to the impressive Museum of the Sea and Salt and has a nature park made up of two saltwater lakes. Whether you choose to stay here or just visit on a short trip from Alicante, Torrevieja is definitely worth it. 
  • Serra Mariola Natural Park. Spain is home to many protected landscapes and the Province of Alicante is no exception. The Serra Mariola is perhaps best known for its stunning waterfalls but also offers great mountain paths for hiking and opportunities to experience the flora and fauna of this part of the country. The park, located near the picturesque town of Alcoy, is just an 80-minute drive northwest of Alicante. 
  • Biar. Although its population is just about 3,500, each year the town of Biar gets many times more tourists than that. Undoubtedly, the city’s main attraction is its impressive Arab castle, but other examples of interesting medieval architecture can be seen on every step of the way. Located inland in the mountains, Biar is just 50 km (31 miles) from Alicante.

Our Customers Reviews

Fiat Panda
5 July 2021
I think an easy guide to switch the language of the car would benefit the majority of your customers. My experience was the fuel gauge dropped from full to 1 less than full once we had entered the garage. Imagine my disappointment to be hit with a £/€58 charge. It only cost €40 to fill it up. That has left a bitter taste so I'm inclined to shop around when I return next month.
