Top tips for hiring a car at Santiago de Compostela Airport

  • Although many people come to Santiago to walk and cycle the famous pilgrim’s route, car hires at Santiago de Compostela Airport (SCQ) are very popular. As well as being near Santiago itself, it is also on or near a series of major motorways that deliver you to some stunning destinations including A Coruña, Vigo and Ferrol. The landscape is incredibly varied in this part of northern Spain and offers lots of opportunity to get into nature and explore the mountains and valleys of this exciting location. To access the best of this part of Spain, a car is a great way to travel and saves so much more time and effort than if you were trying to use public transport.
  • There is one petrol station on the airport campus at Santiago and a number of others on the main approach road. If you plan to refuel your car before returning it then one of these will be ideal.
  • Returning your car to Santiago Airport is relatively easy. You’ll see signs for vehicle hire parking on approach to the airport. Follow these and find a parking bay. After you remove your personal belongings, simply return to the car hire desk and exchange paperwork and keys. Your car will receive a quick check by staff and you can depart.
  • Most of the car hire firms operate from 08:00 to 22:00, seven days a week. A number of them, such as Hertz, operate reduced hours on weekends and midweek. They finish on these days at 16:30. If you want to liaise with staff face-to-face you should arrange to collect or return your car during these hours. If you do arrive during out-of-hours there will be a drop-box for your keys.
  • Book your car hire at Santiago de Compostela Airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Santiago de Compostela Airport

  • Where are car hire companies situated at Santiago de Compostela (SCQ)?

    Car hires at Santiago de Compostela Airport (SCQ) are located in the main terminal. This is a modern single-terminal airport with all amenities grouped together. The car hire desks are in the Arrivals area just after Baggage Reclaim. Staff there will help you with your vehicle choice and advise on any aspects of the rental that you need. The collection point for your car is immediately outside in the car park and a short walk from the desks.

  • What road regulations do I need to know about when driving a hire car from Santiago?

    In Spain you drive on the right and overtake on the left, like many European countries. Tourists are advised to stick to the right-hand lane on motorways, which is the slower lane, unless they have experience of driving in Spain. Road conditions are good and motorways will be tolled. Rural roads are not as comfortable to drive but they offer their own attractions. Everyone needs to wear a seat-belt or be in a child seat and you should carry your passport and driving licence at all times.

  • What kind of amenities are offered at Santiago de Compostela’s rental car centre?

    Since Santiago de Compostela car hire facility is largely contained within the airport terminal you will have full access to all the facilities of the airport. These will include staff assistance, tourist information, toilets, and baby-changing areas, restaurants and cafes, as well as ATMs and currency exchange desks.

  • What type of documentation is required to rent a car at Santiago de Compostela Airport?

    Car hire at Santiago de Compostela Airport will require a full driving licence and a credit or debit card. You will be asked for your passport for secondary identification purposes and it’s useful to have your return flight details ready also. The minimum age for hiring a car in Spain is 21 and all drivers under the age of 25 will pay a young driver charge. Older drivers, over the age of 70, may also have this surcharge extended to them. There is no maximum age to hire a car but individual companies have their own rules around this. If you fall into this age bracket, it’s helpful to bring a GP's letter explaining that you are still able to drive.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Santiago de Compostela Airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Santiago de Compostela Airport to off-airport locations include Ace, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, DRIVALIA , Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Europcar, FLIZZR, and Goldcar Rental SP.

5.2 Fair

Oct 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

I liked that I was able to contract an insurance through the your web page, with Jefferson insurance company, and covered in Spain with ALLIANZ. and at a reasonable rate of $ 135 for 14 days of use

Cons:

When I got to Santiago Budget informed me that with the insurance that I had, if I had an accident I would have to pay them for whatever damages and then I would have to be refunded my ALLIANZ. Obviously this was not an option, so I had to get the insurance that they provided which was far more expensive $ 415,85. I think this is very poor on behalf of budget, and the customer in your web page needs to be informed of this. We also filled the car in a gas station that was about 1 kilometer from the drop off before returning it, but was charged 21 euros for gas. Very strange.

2.0 Poor

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

"office location" and "one way" fee charges unexpected as I booked specifying clearly pickup and dropoff locations. Also, I was informed that CDW was 24 euros and total coverage 28 euros, so I took total. But later in the invoice I noticed that CDW was indeed 11 euros. That is, I was misinformed intentionally to sell me the more expensive option. Also, both, pickup (Pontevedra) and dropoff (Santiago) representatives were plain rude.

Pros:

The guy at the counter was very friendly.

Cons:

We needed a van. We paid (through the nose) for a van. We got a wagon, albeit a nice one, that was not big enough for what we needed. We were still charged for the van.

2.0 Poor

Jul 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

nothing

Cons:

Kayak showed a van with 7 passenger with 3 bags rented with Budget. Actual reservation made by Kayak to Budget is a 5 passenger car + 3 bags or 7 passenger with no bag. Given that we were 7 passenger + bags we had no choice of renting a van with Europcar costing double the price of my reservation made 8 months in advance. Need a comensation.

Pros:

Great value by reserving online ahead of time rather than walking up to the gate. Very friendly and multi-lingual clerks for the most part!

Cons:

The GPS we paid to rent powered up it didnt' actually connect with any satellites, so we had to navigate ourselves. It cost us a few minutes along the way. I wish they had taken the time to verify it was actually working before sending us out with the faulty unit.
