Car Hire

Stunning San Sebastian, in the Spanish Basque Country, has endless charm and is a hip place to visit all year round, but it is especially wonderful in summer-when its Playa de la Concha holds its own against any European city beach.

There’s also a lively old town, a commercial and shopping area, and a grid of late nineteenth century buildings making up the Centro Romántico. Meanwhile, the district of Gros, to the east of the River Urumea, has a relaxed feel and there’s another great beach here that’s a hit with surfers. See the whole city from the top of Monte Igueldo to the west of town.More about San Sebastian Airport

What to do in San Sebastian

With the small San Sebastian Airport only serving domestic flights, getting to the city can be a bit tricky, but hiring a car can make it much easier. Flying in to Bilbao and driving your Thrifty hire car to San Sebastian is the easiest route, and with a hire car for the rest of your stay you really can make more of your trip. If you're visiting for the film festival, the car means you can drive around to the varying cinemas, and take a break from the buzz on the beach.

Located on the Bay of Biscay, having a car means you can visit as many of the beautiful beaches as you like, and can choose a quieter one away from all the crowds. You can also make the most of San Sebastian's close proximity to France, and take a trip over the border in your hire car.
