Car Hire from Valencia Airport

Car Hire at Valencia Airport

This information is correct as of July 2015.

Valencia is a wonderful city to explore, and so are its surrounding areas. A rental car will make it more convenient for you to travel further from the city centre, especially if you plan on visiting historical sites and ancient ruins. To get the best deal possible, try to search and book for a rental car in advance so you won't have to worry about transportation upon arrival at Valencia Airport.

Where to hire a car at Valencia Airport

There are only a handful of car rental companies located at the airport. These are Europcar, Hertz, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and Avis, all of which are situated on Floor 0 of the Terminal. Operating hours for all car rental service desks at Valencia Airport are from 7:00 AM to 12:00 AM Mondays to Saturdays, and from 8:00 AM to 12:00 AM on Sundays. The pick-up area for car rentals is located in the main car park opposite the terminal.

What to expect when hiring a car from Valencia Airport

Valencia Airport is located in the municipalities of Manises and Quart de Poblet, adjacent to the Autovía A-3 highway, which links Valencia with Madrid. It is also near the Autovía A-7 coastal route to Barcelona. At the end of your trip, you will most likely need to return the rental vehicle at the airport, unless you have a different agreement with the car rental company. To do this, head west of Valencia on National road N-220; this connects the westbound A-3 and northbound V-30 from Valencia and leads right to Valencia Airport.

Driving around Valencia Airport

Valencia has motorways that are in excellent condition. The catch is it can get very congested during rush hour. Parking on the streets can be difficult to find; note that yellow markings mean no parking. Blue markings next to a meter indicate pay parking for a limited period of time. There are also several paid car parks in the centre.
