- Stick to the speed limits, even when others around you do not. The police here are vigilant and strict. Foreigners will be issued an on-the-spot fine if caught, and failing to pay it could see your car immobilised. Spain is also one of the strictest countries in Europe when it comes to drink driving. So if you simply must have a sangria, leave the car behind.
- There are many toll roads in Spain. These are marked peage and can add significant costs to your trip. If you need to get somewhere in a jiffy, they are a good choice as they are generally free of jams. If you don’t want to fork out for the tolls, you can avoid them altogether with some careful forward planning.
- Don’t leave anything in the car if you don’t have to. Car break-ins are on the increase in Spain, particularly with rentals. Even paltry personal effects, such as cigarettes or loose change, can be enough to entice a thief to smash, grab and run.
