hiring car outside GIB

Postby flyeogh » Sat Jan 28, 2017 11:53 am

Has anyone recently organised car hire in Spain for people arriving at Gibraltar Airport?

I've got friends arriving from Liverpool/Manchester and one option is to fly to Gib (flight times better than Malaga and much nearer Cadiz), cross the border and get a hire car. Is there a company that will meet them with a car just over the border? They are just 2 people with hand luggage staying for 4/5 days so nothing complex.

Any info gratefully received. :thumbup:

I think its Goldcar that is literally a 100 walk from the Spanish Boarder. It is no real distance to worry about.

Martin many thanks for that - looks just the ticket as Goldcar have an office there. My friends have a possible flight Manchester - Gib which is not too bad on timing and saves them a night in a hotel. Well unless they fancy seeing Gib and staying for a night on arrival. That way no need to travel in darkness. Not that Gib to Cadiz is too bad at night (1 hour 17 mins). :thumbup:

Most companies will meet you in la Linea with a hire car. Do not hire in Gib as getting in and out is a nightmare as you know.

Goldcar have a horrendous rep. Hard selling of insurance etc. Have a good search before deciding
