Hertz in Valencia

Valencia, a beautiful Mediterranean port city on Spain’s famous Orange Blossom Coast, is a joy to explore by rental car. To rent a car in Valencia is easy, as Hertz rental branches are located right across the city.

Valencia is packed with fabulous attractions such as the medieval Llotja de la Seda, a 15th century merchants’ palace, and Valencia Cathedral, which is one of the finest in Spain. At the other extreme, the magnificent City of Arts and Sciences is a celebration of modern technology, and there’s plenty of parking at these and other popular venues.

Driving and Parking in Valencia

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Valencia. If you are from outside the European Union you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Valencia, take a look at our page about renting a car in Spain.

If you choose to rent a car in Valencia, there are plenty of free parking spaces in the north and east of the Turia River Garden. However, in many of the central areas you’ll have to pay at a meter, although the cost is relatively low when compared with other cities like London.

In the Old Town you have a choice of on-street parking spaces but you’ll not be allowed to stay for more than 2 hours at a stretch. The rate is currently €1 per hour or €1.6 for 2 hours. Parking is free between 8.00pm and 9.00am, and it is possible to carry over a few minutes if you did not use up your full quota on a previous occasion.

Driving in and around Valencia

Key routes

There are several main routes running through Valencia and connecting up various parts of the city along with outlying areas. The routes from the centre tend to run out from squares like the Plaza del Tossal, making navigation relatively easy by car.

Calle Quart runs from east to west through the Old Town and cathedral area, bisecting the central Plaza del Tossai.

Calle Guillen de Castro runs in a north-south direction past the Ethnology Museum.

Calle del Pintor Lopez, to the east of the central area, runs along the south bank of the river and is convenient for accessing the nearby cathedral.

Major Highways

Calle del Guadalaviar offers a scenic drive along the river’s north bank and passes right in front of the Museo de Bellas Artes in the eastern area, at the northern end of the Puente de la Trinidad. Bear a few things in mind of a more general nature when using the roads in Spain, in Valencia or elsewhere:

• There’s a strict approach to driving under the influence of any amount of alcohol here, so avoid it completely.
• You must wear your seat belts in both front and back where they are fitted.
• The maximum speed limit in Spain is 120kph on both ‘autovias’ and motorways. Traffic police carry out regular spot checks, so don’t be tempted to overdo things.
• Carry your full driver documentation at all times in case you’re pulled over for a routine check.
• Signage on roads varies considerably in quality and you’re well advised to carry around with you a large-scale map of the area you’re travelling around, or ensure your vehicle is fitted with an up-to-date satellite navigation system
• ‘E’ roads are free of charge to travel on, but most of Spain’s motorways include tolled sections, so check on possible alternate routes before travelling.
