Hi Lesley,

I use Firefly or Interrent at Alicante and San Javier. Interrent are the budget arm of Europcar and have limited availability. Competitive prices, no queues and not rip-off merchants.

Don't use Dickmanns!

I always book via DoYouSpain. Hassle free and very responsive customer support.

There is also free cancellation on some bookings so you can cancel and rebook if prices drop.

Yes, I do. It is cheaper than taking the insurance from the hire company but may not be as cheap as taking an annual excess protection insurance from another company. It all boils down to how often you are out and how many days you will hire a car for.

Example of an annual policy from Confused.com car hire excess insurance at around £40 per annum

You can of course not take excess insurance at all, but you are basically gambling that you won't have any damage. Excess can be €1,000 or more and some car hire companies can have sharp practices and try to charge you for damage that was already there that you didn't notice.
