CarHireExtra.co.uk compares the prices of well-known car hire companies in Spain, including the following location: Alicante Airport
Alicante Airport is one of the top-ten Spanish airports and mainly caters to tourists heading to the Costa Blanca. The most famous resort on the Costa Blanca is Benidorm. Since the 1960s, Benidorm has grown from a small fishing village to one of Spain's top tourist destinations.
The city of Alicante is just five miles to the north of the airport. However, most holidaymakers will bypass the city and continue northwards to Benidorm (37 miles) or Javea (70 miles). One of the quickest ways to get to these resorts is with car hire in Alicante Airport.
Many visitors arrive at Alicante Airport on an all-inclusive package tour. However, increasing numbers of visitors are choosing to get here more independently. This is due in no small part to the huge number of low-cost flights operated by Ryanair and easyJet. These two airlines even have their own dedicated terminal.
Guests who choose not to travel with car rental in Alicante Airport will find that public transport is also available. Public buses, operated by ALSA, go to Murcia and Benidorm, while other operators serve Alicante itself. Otherwise, passengers are limited to a more expensive taxi service.
Visitors will find that getting to the Costa Blanca with cheap car hire in Alicante Airport is easy. Resorts are located close to the AP-7 coastal highway. On the other hand, the airport is also close to the N-332; a short route to Torrevieja, to the south. Torrevieja is popular with foreign residents who have made their home on the Mediterranean coast. It's around 50 minutes from Alicante Airport.
