Location information for Madrid

The capital of Spain, and perhaps the most important city in the country's history, throngs with remnants of its imperial past. Madrid's architecture is a reminder of just how powerful this city once was and visitors are spoilt with abundant palaces, churches and cathedrals, all handily laid out on the city's grid-like road network. Madrid is particularly alive at night-time since it has the more bars and restaurants than any other city in Europe.

Madrid attractions

The largest palace in Europe, Palacio Real, dominates the centre of the city. Visitors can take a tour of the palace to view its extensive collection of historical weaponry. Directly opposite is the Almundena Cathedral, the site of many Spanish royal weddings. The Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol are vast squares where classical music concerts are often put on. The Golden Museum Triangle features three celebrated art museums which showcase paintings by some of the world's most renowned artists.

Madrid excursions

Visitors will be struck by just how many UNESCO World Heritage sites are close to Madrid. With car rental in Madrid, these sites are very accessible. Toledo is perhaps the most famous excursion since its medieval walled city is a UNESCO World Heritage site with many Jewish, Christian and Muslim influences. Other nearby heritage sites include Alcala de Henares, Aranjuez and Avila.

Best time to visit

Madrid can be stiflingly hot in the summer (June to August), making this an uncomfortable time to take in all the attractions. The spring and autumn months are far more moderate in temperature and a jumper will be enough to keep warm. Being a predominately Catholic country, Spain sees the run up to Christmas well celebrated, with many cultural events held in Madrid at this time.

Car rental in Madrid

Car hire in Madrid is found at the airport and in the city centre. Compare car hire online to find the best deal. A car is not necessary in the city itself since it has excellent public transport, but to reach the surrounding UNESCO World Heritage sites, a rental car is the most efficient mode of transport.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is HireCars.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by HireCars.co.uk? at this location
