KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in San Sebastian

  • Visitors to San Sebastian are highly advised to rent a car during their time there so they can take full advantage of what the city and country as a whole have to offer. There are many wonderful sights and towns to visit all within a short drive of the city such as up the coast from San Sebastian at just 50 kilometers (31 miles) away. And even closer there is Hondarribia, at just 23 kilometers (14 miles) away.
  • Travelers arriving at San Sebastian Airport will find that the hire car counters are located within the terminal’s Arrivals Hall. Simply follow the signs and you should have no trouble finding it.
  • One thing to keep in mind when driving in San Sebastian, and throughout Spain, is that it is prohibited to talk on the phone when driving unless the phone is hands-free. Additionally, it is also illegal to text and drive, even if you are stopped at a traffic light. So play it safe and leave any phone operating to your passengers, especially when it comes to navigating.
  • San Sebastian, while not featuring the most serious traffic during rush hour, does have a minor amount of congestion during the work week. In general, drivers can expect rush hour to start up at around 7:00 a.m. and to cool down by around 9:00 a.m., while in the afternoon it picks up at around 4:30 p.m. and finishes just around 7:00 p.m. Askatasunaren Hiribidea and Ategorrieta Hiribidea are two of the main roads that drivers will want to avoid during peak hours, as both often get quite congested.
  • Book your rental car in San Sebastian at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in San Sebastian are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in San Sebastian

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in San Sebastian?

    Due to the many narrow, winding streets in San Sebastian, smaller vehicles are highly recommended. Visitors renting a car in San Sebastian will find that a smaller car will make finding parking, in particular, a much easier task to accomplish. Additionally, small cars are the norm in Spain, so if you plan on visiting other cities in the country, a compact car will certainly be the best choice.

  • What’s the speed limit in San Sebastian?

    Roads in built-up and residential areas in San Sebastian generally have speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph), while outside of such areas the speed limit jumps up to 100 km/h (62 mph) for regular vehicles. On highways and motorways, on the other hand, the speed limit tops out at 120 km/h (74 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in San Sebastian?

    Parking in San Sebastian is not too difficult to find except in the historic centers of town. In those areas streetside parking is very scarce and difficult to find. The best option for drivers parking in those areas is to take advantage of one of the various parking garages nearby and then to go out on foot and use public transport from there. Residential areas outside of the town center do have plenty of streetside parking, though, so this is often is the main go-to option.

  • How much is the price of fuel in San Sebastian?

    The average price of fuel in San Sebastian is RM 31.55 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between RM 378 and RM 505, depending on the car size.

A city map in the car would have been helpful. Reception young lady was friendly and helpful. We have not seen final invoice to see whether gas has been credited back? Great little car, good gas mileage and performed well.

Pros:

The car was great and available for us at the airport.

Cons:

The counter was very slow. It took 45 minutes in the line with 2 customers. Checkin could have been a lot better. Also they told us we can fill up gas at airport station when we return the car. When we got there to return car- the gas station was closed.

Pros:

Nothing at all

Cons:

The service person at San Sebastian airport kept on breaking off while she was servicing me so she can attend to other guests who were waiting in line. She was curt. She was not respectful at all. She did not help me with directions at all. She gave me rental car that was far from satisfactory (Citroen).

We reserved one kind of car. They give us a wildly different kind of car and acted like we should just be happy with it. It really changed our vacation experience because we wanted a family car and they gave us a cargo van.
