Car hires in Murcia: practical information

Where to rent a car in Murcia

Murcia may be inland, but it's not far from the seaside either! It has somehow managed to avoid the mass-tourism that nearby Almeria and Valencia get, making it a great off-track destination for city and sun. If you've already booked flights then all you still need to do is find a cheap car rental in Murcia. The most convenient place to pick up a car hire in Murcia is at the airport. There are several companies represented there including AurigaCrown, Centauro, Europcar and Goldcar Spain.

In Murcia, you'll also find plenty of options. Hertz, Europcar, Atesa, Amounal and others are location along the main streets, Av de Juan Carlos I and Av de Don Juan de Borbón. Always compare car hire prices in Murcia before booking because it may be better price-wise to pick up your car in town rather than at the airport.

Driving in Murcia: parking and other tips

Parking in Murcia isn't much of a problem. There are 25+ car parks in the city centre, all charging around the same rates. You can expect to pay €22/day or €1.80/hour. If you want to be close to the action and not waste your time searching for on-street parking, it's best to head to the parking lot near City Hall. Then you'll be close to both the commercial and historic centres of Murcia.

When you're not taking day trips out of Murcia, make sure that you can park your rental car at your hotel as not all hotels offer free parking to their guests so it's worth enquiring before you book your holiday in Murcia.

Road trips from Murcia: what to do, what to see

Costa Calida

Murcia to the Costa Calida

With the Costa Calida just 25 miles away, it's worth the extra drive to Mar Menor where you can let yourself steep all day in the shallow waters. Mar Menor is Europe's largest saltwater lagoon! To reach the sand bar, you have to go around towards the south, near Cartagena which will tack on another 25+ miles to the distance but it's worth it if you want to see the whole 250km of the "Warm Coast".

Alicante

Murcia to Alicante

Just about the same distance, 50 miles, is Alicante. This buzzing seaside city has tons to offer, especially if you're looking for a good place to work on your tan. Spend the day at the beach, surfing or swimming and at night head into the old town to get a bite of some fresh seafood and then a party. This university town has loads of energy, can you keep up?

Almeria

Murcia to Almeria

In the other direction, make some time in your trip to visit Almeria. If you're keen on something a bit off the usual track, then check out Cabo de Gata, a small national park with some incredible and secluded rocky beaches. Every summer there is an all night party in San José, not to be missed. Drive along the coastal towns, stopping especially in San José. There are many small coves where you can spread yourself out without any onlookers. This place is a favourite.
