Northern Spain - Discover Iberia’s Hidden Gem with Rhino Car Hire

Often overlooked by sun seekers heading to the south of the country, Northern Spain is often nearly deserted or populated with French or Spanish tourists who are among the few to recognise the attractions of the region. Car hire Bilbao can take you to the delights of the city which include the futuristic Guggenheim Museum, or further afield to Guernica, whose terrible suffering in the Spanish Civil War was immortalised by Picasso, the seaside city of San Sebastian or the tranquil alpine air of the Pyrenees.

Many British tourists take the ferry to Santander or Bilbao or fly in and use hire car hire Bilbao Airport before heading south, fearful of poor weather from the Bay of Biscay even in the summer months. In doing so, they miss so much of the region where the weather is often ideal for days on the beach or for exploring the ancient cities. Visiting any of the towns and cities in the region is easy when using car hire Spain and with quiet roads, even the distant cities such as Santiago de Compostela are within reach.

Phil Partridge, Marketing Manager at Rhino Car Hire comments, "One of the most beautiful coastal cities in the world, San Sebastian is virtually ignored by British tourists. The sea and beach reach up to the ancient city walls and you can swim within metres of its UNESCO Heritage Sites. All this is easily accessed by hiring a car in Bilbao, from the ferry port or Airport. With prices starting from £62 for a week’s rental, that's under £9 per day and low cost flights with several operators, there’s never been a better time to visit.

A large amount of our rentals are from French and Spanish families spending their holidays where the Spanish royal family have holiday homes but we are gradually seeing a rise in bookings from British tourists who are looking to try something different from the usual resorts in the South"

So, could 2012 be the year when Northern Spain finally gets the attention it deserves?
