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

There's no reason to be worried, as long as you are clued up with the T&Cs and avoid being sold any extras then you don't have anything to worry about, here are a few of the common complaints around car hire in Spain so you can avoid them:

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. This is only usually the case with smaller Spanish rental companies such as Goldcar or Centauro.

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.

This shouldn't be a problem however as within the grounds of the airport there are two Respol service station with one that servers terminal 1,2 & 3 and the other that servers terminal 4 so you're always covered, these are also open for 24 hours a day, you can't miss them!
