In Spain you drive on the right and overtake on the left, the opposite of the UK system. On motorways, it’s advised that tourists drive in the right-hand lane - which is the slowest lane - unless you have experience of driving in Spain. Your car hire company should ensure you have the requisite reflective triangles and jackets for emergencies and everyone should wear seatbelts or use child restraints. You will need to have your passport in your possession at all times, as well as your driving licence.
As the rental desks are in the terminal building you’ll have access to all the amenities of the airport, including help desks, tourist information, ATMs and currency exchange. There are also small cafes and snack bars, as well as family toilet facilities and waiting areas.
