Mini Guide to Santander Airport

Santander has been a key point of entry to Spain for decades, but most people arrived by ferry with their cars and then drove around northern Spain or headed south to the Costas. Nowadays those who do not want the long journey or the uncomfortable trip across the Bay of Biscay choose to fly with Ryanair to Santander Airport and hire a car when they arrive, fresh and ready to go. Often, you will save money by using this alternative means of getting around northern Spain. Once you get out of the airport, you will find it is only around ten minutes’ drive in a hire car to the city.
 
Many people choose to take their car on the ferry from Plymouth or Portsmouth to Santander, but it can be a lot cheaper to fly there and then collect a hire car for your stay in Cantabria. Not only will you have the reassurance of a car that’s less than two years old and which has been carefully maintained and cleaned prior to your collection but you also be able to get great rates on car hire at Santander Airport with us.

We will have checked all the available hire car prices at Santander Airport so we can ensure you won’t get a better deal on price or better value. We include a comprehensive package of insurance including collision damage waiver and roadside assistance in our price and even offer you the choice of optional sat-nav, roof bars or child booster seats. We think we have thought of everything, so it is now over to you to get your booking completed today. If you hire a car in Spain often, renting one at Santander Airport offers the same great service, availability, and affordability.
