Valencia (Spain)

Valencia is a city at the east coast of Spain, located on the Mediterranean Sea. The city is famous for its great historical center, a building with a massive architecture which has given Valencia the image as the "city of sciences and arts", as well as the birthplace of paella, the favorite food of the Spanish. Within the city is also La Lonja de la Seda, the ancient silk market, which was restored in Gothic style in the 1990s, as well as the Valencia Cathedral, which was converted into a Christian church, and whose tower offers a great view. The city's most famous festival is Fallas. It takes place every March and there are built huge buildings and statues out of paper pulp, and every night there are great fireworks. At the end of March, all accessories are burned in a large celebration. 90 km north of the city is the location of the hot springs, which are well worth a visit."

Car Rental

Things which affect the renting of the car:

  • Driver’s license: In the European Union / Schengen a driver's license from an EU country is sufficient, although for North Americans it is recommended to carry a separate international driving license, in addition to the American driving license.
  • Direction of traffic: In Europe the traffic is mainly right-handed. The exception is Great Britain, which is left-handed traffic.
  • Insurance: In Western Europe, all rental cars include some kind of insurance, so additional insurance policies are often unnecessary (unless you are going to Russia or Eastern Europe).
  • Driving abroad: You can drive a rental car almost everywhere within all countries of the European Union / Schengen territory without additional fees. Eastern European countries and Russia are the exceptions and you should always ask the car rental company in advance about the rules.
