Hire a Car in Pontevedra with Rhino Car Hire

Welcome to Rhinocarire Pontevedra - Hiring a car in Pontevedra opens the door to an unforgettable Galician adventure. Nestled in the northwest of Spain, Pontevedra is a province rich with lush landscapes, historic towns, and breathtaking coastlines. With your own hire car, you have the freedom to explore the serene beauty of the Rías Baixas, renowned for their stunning beaches and world-class seafood. Drive through the verdant countryside dotted with vineyards, visit the ancient monasteries, and meander through the charming streets of Pontevedra's well-preserved old town. Car hire in Pontevedra is not just a convenience, it's your ticket to an immersive journey through the heart of Galicia.

Is Hiring a Car In Pontevedra Worth It? While Pontevedra's city center is best explored on foot due to its pedestrian-friendly design, hiring a car becomes invaluable if you plan on exploring the broader Rías Baixas region. The coastal towns, scenic spots, and vineyards of the region are best accessed with personal transport. Moreover, Galicia's undulating landscapes and sea views offer a memorable driving experience.

All of our rental cars are regularly serviced and checked but still have the assurance of 24 hour emergency cover if needed. You are not far from the border of Portugal and if you fancy taking in another country, we can supply a sat-nav system that will get you there and back without getting you lost. Please check your car rental terms and conditions re cross border travel.  Other optional extras include child car seats if travelling with a young family or roof racks if you have got just a little too much luggage! Just ask us when you book and we will ensure it is all sorted for you when you collect your rental car!

Pontevedra, located in the heart of the Rías Baixas in the Galicia region of Spain, is a charming and historic city known for its picturesque old town, narrow winding streets, and a plethora of squares lined with cafes. Its pedestrian-friendly environment has been applauded for urban sustainability. The city’s position near the coastline and estuaries provides it with a maritime charm and a wealth of seafood culinary delights.

  • Parking: Like many historic cities, Pontevedra's old town has limited parking. It's advisable to use parking lots on the outskirts and then explore the city center on foot.
  • Tolls: The AP-9, a major route in Galicia, is a toll road. Always have some cash or a credit card handy.

  • Pontevedra to Sanxenxo: Roughly 18 km (about 25 minutes) via the EP-9202, which takes you to one of the most popular beach towns in the region.
