Easiest. Car rental. EverPros: I'm an Australian travelling in Spain and I'd never even heard of Kayak before I Googled "car rental Spain". Within 15 minutes I'd compared the results, selected Kayak's option and had booked a car to pick up in San Sebastian later that week. For $11 a day! Cheapest, easiest, least painful car rental experience I've ever had, and that includes all the times I've hired cars in my own country. I even ended up getting more of a discount because I returned the car four hours earlier than originally planned.Cons: Driving in Spain. OMG, they're crazy over here!

Pros: Easy pick up and drop off. Great service.Cons: Maybe include a map of the area, including highways leading out of town. I overheard 2 people, plus myself, asking for directions before getting into the car.

10.0 Excellent11 Jul 2016
Kayak misleadPros: Kayak showed an image of the van I was renting, which was a 9 passenger van. However, upon arrival all Sixt had to offer was a small van that could not accommodate six people. We had to spend twice the money and rent another car so we could all fit. We had to pay twice the gas and tolls.

Top tips for hiring a car in San Sebastian

  • Visitors to San Sebastian are highly advised to rent a car during their time there so they can take full advantage of what the city and country as a whole have to offer. There are many wonderful sights and towns to visit all within a short drive of the city such as up the coast from San Sebastian at just 50 kilometers (31 miles) away. And even closer there is Hondarribia, at just 23 kilometers (14 miles) away.
  • Travelers arriving at San Sebastian Airport will find that the hire car counters are located within the terminal’s Arrivals Hall. Simply follow the signs and you should have no trouble finding it.
  • One thing to keep in mind when driving in San Sebastian, and throughout Spain, is that it is prohibited to talk on the phone when driving unless the phone is hands-free. Additionally, it is also illegal to text and drive, even if you are stopped at a traffic light. So play it safe and leave any phone operating to your passengers, especially when it comes to navigating.
  • San Sebastian, while not featuring the most serious traffic during rush hour, does have a minor amount of congestion during the work week. In general, drivers can expect rush hour to start up at around 7:00 a.m. and to cool down by around 9:00 a.m., while in the afternoon it picks up at around 4:30 p.m. and finishes just around 7:00 p.m. Askatasunaren Hiribidea and Ategorrieta Hiribidea are two of the main roads that drivers will want to avoid during peak hours, as both often get quite congested.
  • Book your rental car in San Sebastian at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in San Sebastian

  • The average price of fuel in San Sebastian is $8.49 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between $102 and $136, depending on the car size.

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • Due to the many narrow, winding streets in San Sebastian, smaller vehicles are highly recommended. Visitors renting a car in San Sebastian will find that a smaller car will make finding parking, in particular, a much easier task to accomplish. Additionally, small cars are the norm in Spain, so if you plan on visiting other cities in the country, a compact car will certainly be the best choice.

  • Roads in built-up and residential areas in San Sebastian generally have speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph), while outside of such areas the speed limit jumps up to 100 km/h (62 mph) for regular vehicles. On highways and motorways, on the other hand, the speed limit tops out at 120 km/h (74 mph).

  • Petrol costs on average €1.35 ($1.56) per liter in San Sebastian, which comes out to roughly to €5.11 ($5.90) per gallon.

  • Parking in San Sebastian is not too difficult to find except in the historic centers of town. In those areas streetside parking is very scarce and difficult to find. The best option for drivers parking in those areas is to take advantage of one of the various parking garages nearby and then to go out on foot and use public transport from there. Residential areas outside of the town center do have plenty of streetside parking, though, so this is often is the main go-to option.
