Car and Van rental in Santander

Santander is the Spanish capital of Cantabria, a port city located on the northern coast of Spain. It is most famous internationally for being the birthplace of the famous Banco Santander, but there is much more to the city than just finance. Santander has a rich cultural history and a grand cathedral, alongside such landmarks as the Lighthouse of Cabo Mayor. More recent modernisation has made Santander one of Spain's first ever Smart Cities, with vital services run by sensors and computers. Whatever the reason for your visit, Enterprise Rent-A-Car will provide the transport you need to get around. With branches at either end of the city, we'll get you on the road as quickly as possible. Find us at Santander Train Station close to the bay (opposite Santander Cathedral) and at the main gate of the Aeropuerto de Santander to the south of the city, off the N-36 road.

Airport Car Hire

If you're arriving in Santander by plane, you'll probably be landing at the Aeropuerto de Santander, to the south of the main city. The airport primarily handles domestic flights within Spain, but it also provides transit to and from other major airports in the EU. It is a relatively busy airport, but not particularly large. If you need a rental car in a hurry after disembarking, Enterprise runs one branch (Santander Airport) located outside the main airport terminal. You can find us on the main N-636 road loop, off the S-10 road approaching the building.

Attractions in Santander

Santander is well known for its impressive beaches and lighthouse, alongside the religious and architectural heritage of the city. In particular, the Peninsula of Magdalena is famous as a beautiful natural landscape. If you want to spend some time at the seaside, the Playa Primera de El Sardinero is the best-regarded beach in the city. The cathedral, palace and grand casino of Santander are also famous tourist destinations if you're looking to do something indoors. The more modern parts of the city to the south also contain a decent range of retail and grocery outlets.

Places to Visit Outside Santander

The modestly-sized city of Santander is only a short distance by road from a number of other important Spanish cities and national parks. The market towns of Astillero, Sollares and Torrelavega are all nearby, and all contain pleasant walks, hotels and more opportunities to shop. If you're looking for outside activities, the nearby Naturaleza de Cabárceno Park contains incredible views and hiking trails across a reconditioned former mining landscape. Likewise, the northern Spanish coastline contains great vistas, walks and golf courses at key oceanic sites such as Dunas de Liencres.
