Zaragoza is a city in the northeast of Spain, located at the source of Ebro River. The city's climate is Mediterranean-continental, so in winter the temperature is often only a few degrees Celsius, while it can reach 40 C in summer. The cold northeast wind, that blows often in the area, can make warm autumn days cold and even bring temperatures up to -15 C in the winter. The area's most famous attractions are the Roman Catholic church "Senora de Pilar" and the Moorish-fashioned palace "Palacio de la Aljaferia". The city also has numerous museums and other churches as well as the largest river aquarium of Europe."

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.
