Alicante Airport Car Hire
You may have read a lot of complaints about car hire in Spain in general or in Alicante Airport specifically, a lot of "too good to be true" prices being throw around.

There's no reason to be concerned about hiring at Alicante Airport as long as you read through the T&Cs of the rental, everything is detailed within here. There are a few common issues that we find people have trouble with when hiring at the airport which include:

Additional Charges: Often car hire companies in Spain will try hard sell you on additional charges, a common one is protecting your quite high excess, paying for additional drivers and some include an admin fee on top of your rental, but not all. We stress if you read the T&Cs you will be able to find a rental in Alicante at a fantastic price without being stung.

Upgrade: The language barrier also sometimes can complicate this, again car rental companies at the airport often try and upsell so they may offer you an upgrade, but make it sound more like "your in luck". Ensure that you are not paying for the upgrade before receiving the car.

Full To Full Fuel Policy: People can be a little prickly about this one, in Spain and well most other countries car hire works on a full to full policy, meaning that you get the car with a full tank and need to return it with a full tank. The only reason people get annoyed with this at Alicante Airport is the charges can be quite high for returning the car empty there.

It shouldn't be a problem though as there is a petrol station right near the airport itself, a Tangerina Galp on the A70 which is about 2km from the Airport and a Campsa Service Station in El Altet just off the N332 if your coming from the south. If that's not enough, there's a Galp station just opposite the new terminal, but it's on the other side of the motorway.
