car hire alicante to benidorm for 6

by senahel

flying into alicante 15/6 to 22/6 2010, thinking of hiring a car to get to benidorm.

the problem is there are 6 of us, 3 adults, 1 13yo, 1 12yo, 1 2yo.

will i get away with a standard size car 5 seats, as a people carrier is too expencive.

we will all fit in the car, would it be ok to use 1 seatbelt for the 12yo and 2yo.?

how strict are the laws? will be driving about 9 or 10pm
what are the odds or getting pulled?

thanks in advance

thanks for your answers,

i do not know the laws in spain, that was my reason for asking.
we will only have basic luggage as our appartment has all the
facilities, eg washing machine, dryer etc.

i guess a better option is to get 1 adult to go by bus.

thanks again.

There is bus service from the airport to Benidorm:

Be sure you fly to El Altet airport (ALC). San Javier airport, in Murcia, is called sometimes "Alicante Sur" although it is some 100 km from here.

I wouldn't hire a 5 seats car. First for your safety; second, traffic laws are now more restrictive and the pressure over the drivers has dramatically increased.

In spain there is two kind of vehicle. One is taxi, from 1-4 people and other oficial is call VTC, from 1-7 people.

I don't know if there is more expensive than a hire car, but with VTC-vehicle you will go with seater-baby, and they pick up you at the airport o resort. In this website you can contact with this vehicle:

More people don't know what it's VTC, it's very new, and there is oficial transport in Spain.

Travel Tips for Alicante

Cliff village

by snorril

Of the tours we took around the area I think I was most impressed with Guadalest. This is a village built on cliffs and there are some great views. But of course considering its location a short distance from Benidorm it’s pretty crowded.

Benidorm is the biggest...

by la_beba

Benidorm is the biggest holiday resort on the Costa Blanca. Nowadays the 6km of beach area along Benidorm's frontage attracts an average 180,000 people. It hasn't always been like that though. It was once a sleepy fishing village - before the holiday boom of the 70's. The area is now a mass of high rise hotels and apartments and a haunt of the package holiday.

Benidorm has a youthful and pulsating nightlife with many discos and nightclubs, endless bars and fine restaurants. Here you can party till dawn....Lots of different shows like 'Sticky Vicky's magic show', 'Sexy Barbara' or 'EL Toreador'.....
Check out my Benidorm Travelogue! for pics of 'El Toreador's show

In teh Hotel i have all...

by tucha

In teh Hotel i have all included, all the meals, therefore I nver tried any restaurant in Benidorm..but don't hurry: in Benidorm there are plenty of restaurants, opening late at night (some of they at open air, and with music), for all tastes..from Spanish food to chisnese and fast- food lika Macdonals and Burger King, and Pizza will have everything!!!!! In the Hotel Gran Bali, the food was buffet..and such a bufett!!! There´s plenty of food for all tastes.
Thre were much salads, bread, a hot selection of meats and fishes that changes from lunch to dinner , and from one day to another.
I eat so much during 10 days..the breakfast has so much to offer: eggs, cerals, diferent varieties of bread, saussages, bacon, cereals, cokies...even tortila (is one of typical food in Sapin - is like an ommolet but made with potatoes too) for the beguinig of the day.
Only a negative thing: for the dessert the fruits are very good, with a good variety but the the rest are very artifical..very bad ..
I stayed for 2 nigts in Hotel Torre Dourada, near Gran Hotel Bali and the food is better..and it's a 3 Star Hotel. The Gran Bali is 4 star. They even have in Torre Dourada typical food of the region like paella.

But if you have the oportunity to eat outside the Hotel, you can always tried some grilled fish.. we are in a seaside city.

You never get out of Benidorm without trying paella.

Paseo Explanada

by rebibi

This Avenue is great to stroll under the palm trees. Many Restaurants and stalls, selling souvenirs and a lot of different things, are along this Avenue.
One thing impressed me very much, something I have never seen in another city:
The community have many chairs at everybodys disposal but they should not be removed from the Avenue. It seems to work and we saw a lot of people using the chairs, sitting and talking togehter.
A good idea I think.

Art Exhibitions in the Diputación Palace

by gOdOtPm

The building is fairly new (built in 1931) and the architect who planned it (Juan Vidal Ramos) chose to do it in a generic way under Italian influence, very similar to the Palacio Borbónico in Madrid.

The Diputación building (reformed in 2006) occupies the whole block of the Avenida de la Estación (railway station avenue) and inside there are a very interesting art gallery where temporary exhibitions are shown and tons of offices for the local governors and workers.

The art exhibitions are open:
Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 14:00 h and from 18:00 to 21:00 h
Free entrance.
