What kind of rental car should I get for Alicante?
Alicante has lots on offer. You could hang out for a week in this place and not run out of things to do. If you’d like to soak up as much as you can in this buzzing metropolis, a rental car is a must. Keep in mind that driving in the city often goes hand in hand with tight streets and even tighter parking spaces. Don’t worry though, because a small car like a compact can make this a lot easier to manage. If you’d like to get out of the city and check out the sandy shores that Alicante is well known for, you’ll probably prefer something with more cargo space. A full-size or mid-size SUV is a good choice.
