Car rental Alicante airport

Alicante Airport (ALC), situated 9 km southwest of Alicante on the east coast of Spain, is the sixth busiest airport in Spain, also the entrance gateway to Costa Blanca, one of the major tourist destinations in Spain. Alicante El Altet, the official name for the airport, is served by a number of airlines like: EasyJet, Ryanair, Air Berlin, Iberia, Spanair, Monarch, Germanwings, Aerlingus, Finnair, Thomsonfly, Cimber Sterling, Transavia.com and Jet2.com, with around 80% of all passenger flights being international. Handling more than nine million passengers per year, it is ranked as one of the 50 busiest airports in Europe. There are three Terminals. The grand new terminal is split into two areas, the processor where C Gates are located and the dock where the majority of B Gates stand. Flights within the Schengen countries use both areas while flights to non-Schengen countries only use the dock.

Transfer bus was waiting for us on the ground floor. In bay 29 as I remember. We had to wait a bit at the collection counter as there were three people before us. Returning the car was a simple matter. And we would happily rent from them in the future.

Book early for everything, particularly car hire, so you can choose the size of car you really need. Choose a company with the fuel policy you want. Don't over pack for the holiday, you never use everything you take! Get to the airport in plenty of time, there are often hold ups at check in or security. Do your homework on the area so you can really enjoy your holiday from the minute you land at your destination.

Check insurance costs as even if you have bought insurance though the booking agent, hire company will insist on theirs or a 1000 Euro deposit for any accidental damage

Alicante airport is nice enough although food and drink is very expensive. There are great road links if you are driving and once you are on the A7 its plain sailing. If you have young kids, go past the main shopping and eating areas towards the departure gates and you'll find a small play area. The seating area is quieter here also. If you are flying in the evening you can get a great view of the sunset over the med. All and all its not a bad place to spend some time and wasn't that busy that it became uncomfortable.

Alicante is a very underrated city and has lots of places to eat and lovely beaches and harbour. Calle San Francisco has huge mushrooms and slides for children to play around and makes the street interesting to walk down. Great for families or even those without. La Zenia Shopping Centre on the 35km south of Alicante is a great place for shopping and eating out. Easy to get to, straight down the N332.

Alicante is nice, but like any other big city parking can be difficult/expensive. liked the castle and the shopping malls, and the very affordable small amousement park right next to the sea in the city. We lived near alicante in a small town, and it was excellent in offseason, free parking, cheap food/drink, accomodation and with a car you can go to where ever in when ever. lots of castles etc near by.

We did not stay in Alicante so cannot comment on it. We stay in Los Alcazares in the Murcia area. A nice place to visit is Cartagena for history, scenery and shopping. To go for a Menu del dia, look where the Spanish people go, you will get an excellent lunch for a reasonable price and not be ripped off.

Alicante airport is a modern terminal but if you are travelling Aer Lingus, every departure gate except the one allocated to Aer Lingus has a seating area. Expect to stand for quite a while (when waiting for your plane to land in the first place).

Most people speak english, there are a lot of sightseeing locations, but quite a long distances between them. If you wan to drive faster, you should choose toll road as there are less traffic and higher speed limit (toll prices are not as big however). While alternative roads are jammed with traffic especially on evening.
