First trip to Spain: car rental and driving experience???

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning our Spain trip in July. Our tentative itinerary below.

Basically we want to know whether renting a car in cities Majorca, Granada and Sevilla a good option or the public transportation is good enough? We basically found out that Majorca seeing around in own transportation is better option, suggestions? Also we want to drive from Granada to Sevilla so was thinking to keep the car for seeing around in those cities as well. Suggestions?

1. From LA, flying to Madrid and taking a flight to Barcelona and spend next 2 days. Will see around in public transport.

2. Taking a flight to Majorca and spend a day. We were thinking to rent a car here. Is renting a good idea. Not sure of the public transportation options. How easy to drive around and finding parking? If we rent we would return before taking flight to Granada.

3. Then flying to to Granada pick up rental car. Same question about this city? Is using public transportation/taxis better option. If we rent how about the parking and driving?

4. Want to drive to Sevilla with rental car and keep the car with ourselves for seeing around in the city.

5. Take the train from Sevilla to Madrid and spend 1.5 days with public transports and taxis.

appreciate your time and helping out.
