Disaster
Pros: They were courteous when I picked up the car. Spoke English well. There was not much of a wait to get service
Cons: The GPS did not work well. The car would not start onthe last day of the trip and neither The Hertz office in Nice or in Spain would help. Allianz insurance would not help. The situation is still not resolved, I have spent 6 or more hours on the phone with only getting told "that I need to talk to a different Hertz office.

Terrible RIP OFF in Spain Bilbao
Pros: car was new
Cons: I booked a car for 6 passengers only to be told its not big enough for our luggage.I was given a bigger car that I had to pay for. Then I was told that the car I purchased didn't include any Insurance at all and that I was liable up to 25000 Euro. in all I had to pay approx. another $450 Euro for the car. I wont waste my time on the holiday complaining and reporting this abuse of vulnerable travellers(when they don't have another choice and cancellation is not allowed) but when I get back to Sydney I will be making formal complaints

Hidden charges
Pros: Good car, reasonable price
Cons: Hidden "surcharge" fee with tax on that as well of course. No idea what this is for. I pre-paid with kayak and returned the vehicle in good order and full of fuel. Maybe there's a good reaon for it but certainly isn't explained in the invoice I've been sent after returning home.

Top tips for renting a car in Bilbao

  • Excited for your trip to Bilbao? Why not make the most out of it by renting a car? With a car you can easily access many of the cool and interesting towns and sights that are just outside Bilbao. For instance, the coastal town of Lekeitio, which at 70 km (43 miles) away is just a one-hour drive from Bilbao and is perfect as a short excursion.
  • Looking to pick up a rental car after landing in Bilbao? If your flight lands at Bilbao Airport you will find the rental car counters in the main hall of the airport, as well as just across from the airport in the parking lot.
  • Spain has a strict policy of no cell phone use when driving so drivers visiting Bilbao should make sure to keep this in mind. This is important to note because Bilbao’s many one-way streets can be confusing to navigate for those new to the city and it is highly recommended that you use a GPS device to help you get around. For many, their cell phones are their GPS, so make sure to either have a device to make your cell phone hands-free or have a passenger take over phone duties when driving in Bilbao.
  • Bilbao, like many cities in Spain, has four separate rush hour periods -- from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The reason for these four rush hour periods is because of the famed Spanish siesta. Many drivers rush to and from work during these hours to get home to take their mid afternoon siesta.
  • Book your rental car in Bilbao at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Larger cars may also have some difficulty finding streetside parking spaces big enough for them in the downtown core.

What's the speed limit in Bilbao?

Fuel prices in Bilbao average about €1.25 ($1.42) per liter. In gallons that comes out to roughly €4.73 ($5.36) per gallon of gas. This is a fairly low price for Europe and is significantly lower than the average price of €5.87 ($6.68) per gallon in Frankfurt and the average price of 64.35 NOK ($7.49) per gallon in Oslo.

Where are the best places to park in Bilbao?

Drivers will find that parking spaces are amply available throughout Bilbao. In the downtown core the best parking options are often the parking garages and lots interspersed throughout the central business district. Outside of downtown, streetside parking should be easy to find and, at worst, you may have to park a block or two away from your destination.
