Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Alicante Airport! Then drive to the city center to take in all the beautiful architecture in Old Town. While you’re there, visit museums like the Archeological Museum of Alicante, the Asegurada Museum of Modern Art, and the Gravina Museum of Fine Arts. Then drive your rental up Benacatil Mountain to the Santa Barbara Castle, built in the 9th century, and enjoy the fantastic views of Alicante and the bay.

But, Alicante is best known for its beautiful beaches. Postiguet Beach is the most famous and offers lots of fun things do. San Juan Beach, a bit farther from the center, is less built up and crowded. If you’re up for an adventure, park your rental at the port and catch a ferry to Tabarca Island. It’s a beautiful place, almost frozen in time. Enjoy the natural beauty but make sure to prepare before you go because there are no ATMs on the island!

Alicante is a great destination, but the surrounding region has even more to offer. So why not get a longer term car rental? You can go north to Barcelona, drive down the Mediterranean coast, or head inland to explore the Spanish countryside. You can even pick up your rental car at Alicante Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your vacation today!

Alicante Airport is also called Alicante-Elche Airport, Aeropuerto de Alicante-Elche, and El Altet.
