Car rental in Spain

Jump to last reply

We will be spending a week in Costa Del Sol at end of May. It looks like from reading the forum that it is recommended to rent a car so that we can move around more easily. We will be flying into Malaga. My question is is it better to rent at the airport or somewhere local and do the rentals include unlimited mileage. Should we rent online prior to arriving there or can it be done upon arrival, which is better. Also, can we use our car insurance in US or are we required to get European car insurance? Has anyone had a bad experience renting a car in Spain?

Thanks for any suggestions or recommendations.
