IT´S COMMON FOR VISITORS to the Orihuela Costa to arrange car hire as part of their plans for summer holidays or during year-round short stays. In fact, one of the most commonly asked questions in the La Zenia community Facebook Group is “Where is the best place to hire a car?”.

Hiring a car allows visitors to make the most of the local area, leaving holidaymakers with extra time to explore the very best that Orihuela Costa has to offer without relying on public transport.

International visitors typically arrive via the areas two main airports: Alicante-Elche airport, or the Región de Murcia airport that opened in January 2019. Both airports offer a comprehensive suite of choices for renting a car.

Car rental options at Alicante airport include Centauro, Hertz-Firefly, Goldcar InterRent, Sixt, Record Go, Europcar, and Avis. These big brands have a sales office within the main terminal building.
