Car and Van rental in Alicante
Situated on Spain's south-east coastline, Alicante forms part of the Costa Blanca (white coast). The regional capital city of the province of the same name, Alicante is a popular destination in itself and a convenient starting point for visitors exploring the area. In Alicante city centre, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car office is in the mainline (Renfe) train station, convenient for the seafront promenade, bus station and Puerta del Sol marina area. Driving is straightforward in Spain on the well-maintained main roads – so whether for business or leisure travel, car rental in Alicante with Enterprise means it easy to get around. Holiday visitors will find plenty of attractions and interesting places to explore, from theme parks and Blue Flag beaches to gardens with waterfalls and quiet villages.

Airport Car Hire
The main regional airport that serves Alicante is at Elche, just 11 kilometres from the centre on the N-332 main road or 14 kilometres via the A-70 motorway. Also known as El Altet, Elche International Airport has good bus links to the city centre, with air-conditioned services departing every 20 minutes. El Altet is the fifth busiest passenger airport in Spain and serves the Valencian Community and the Region of Murcia. As many as eight out of ten departures and arrivals at Alicante Airport are international, while frequent domestic destinations include Barcelona, Madrid and Palma de Mallorca. Not much further away is Valencia Airport, which has its own Enterprise branch.
Attractions in Alicante
Visitors to this provincial capital should not miss a visit to the sixteenth-century Santa Barbara castle, where the cannons at the top of the climb point out over spectacular views of the city and coastline. Alternatively, the historic centre is replete with tapas bars and coffee houses, cafeterias and restaurants offering international cuisine to enjoy on terrace seating. Just a short drive central Alicante, there is a choice of shopping malls, a provincial Roman archaeological museum and a port with boat trips along the coast.
Places to Visit Outside Alicante
To the north-east in the direction of Valencia, the popular seaside resort of Benidorm is within easy reach along the AP-7 motorway and N-332 towards Villajoyosa, Terra Mitica and the choice of Poniente and Levante beaches. With the benefit of vehicle rental, visitors can explore the northern Costa Blanca with ease, from the scenic walkway of the Sierra Gelada near El Albir to the palm-lined beach and impressive rock towering over Calpe. A day out at the emblematic theme park of Terra Mitica or an excursion to the castle and town of Guadalest are sure to offer something for all members of the family. Alternatively, the little-known delight of Carmen del Campillo Moorish tea house and gardens is half an hour's drive away.
Parking and Traffic Information in Alicante
Although space is usually at a premium in central Alicante, most hotels offer secure car-parking facilities and there are various underground car parks too. In town and city centre streets in the region, blue-painted parking spaces indicate that payment must be made in advance at the nearby parking meter. As one would expect, parking is usually much simpler outside the city centre and for trip planning purposes, local traffic is busiest on weekdays at around 9 am and around 1 pm just before lunch – and then later in the evening, around 7-8 pm.
