What to expect when hiring a car from Seville Airport
Seville Airport is seven kilometres from the city centre of Seville in Spain. To return to the airport from the city, take the Avenide de Kansas City. This connects to the A4 motorway. Head towards the direction of Madrid, then take Exit 533. There should be ample signs for 'aeropuerto' to help you make sure you're on track. You might have an agreement with the car rental company for you to return the vehicle with the same level of fuel as when you got it. If this is a case, the petrol station nearest the airport is about four kilometres away; it is located on the A-4 highway, on the northbound side from Seville at exit 536.
Driving around Seville Airport
Drivers must be at least 21 years of age to be able to drive legally in Spain, although some car rental companies charge supplements for those under the age of 25. Present a valid passport and a valid international insurance policy, the latter of which can be bought at the time of rental.
Be warned that driving in the city centre of Seville is best restricted to getting out and going into the centre. It would be wise to acquire a map and plan your route before even leaving your hotel to minimise mistakes in driving directions. Parking can also be difficult.
