Arranging car hire when visiting Orihuela gives holidaymakers a much better sense of freedom during their stay. With its surrounding mountains and lakes and nearby beaches, there is much to explore in the Orihuela Municipality. A bit further afield are the lively cities of Torrevieja, Alicante and Benidorm. These are home to a great selection of water, theme and animal parks. Being coastal cities, they also offer visitors a multitude of water sports and activities. Another splendid area to visit to the south of Orihuela is the beautiful beaches of the Mar Menor Lagoon.
Airport Car Hire
Most visitors pre-book car hire to be collected upon arrival at their chosen airport. Alicante International Airport is the largest that services the Costa Blanca. Here there are several national and international car hire companies. These include Avis Budget, Hertz, Record Go, Europcar, Sixt, Goldcar Rental and Centauro. Those arriving at the smaller Murcia-San Javier Airport will find less choice. Car rental companies include Goldcar Rental, Firefly and Europcar. Most of these companies offer vehicles upon arrival although it's advisable to book in advance during summer.
Several local independent car hire companies will also arrange pick up and drop off at both airports. Orihuela Insider and many of our clients use the professional and efficient services of Coys Rent-A-Car. The company have been established in Torrevieja since 1992. They run a large fleet of vehicles to suit most individual's requirements. These include a full range of the latest Citroens as well as Opel Astras, Nissan Quashqais and several types of 5 and 7 seater vehicles.
Orihuela City Car Hire
Visitors that have not pre-booked a hire car for collection at the airport will find a small number of independent car rental agencies in Orihuela City. These include Rentagain Rentals on Av. Duque Tamames in the city centre, and Primoti just off the N-340 on the outskirts of the city. We always advise using a recommended and well established company when choosing the services of an independent car rental agent. Some may not be as open or even honest as the well known national and international companies. therefore it's imperative to check your vehicle and all your documentation thoroughly before signing any rental agreement or contract.
