You have to be 25 to hire cars here I think and have a years driving experience. If the age is any lower it will be 21 with a years driving experience, but I suspect it is 25 as that is the age of becoming a fully fledged adult here :S

Don't know anything about motos though. It may be possible! You could always hire a bike ;)

hi
thanks
yer i'v tried a few places and they have all said 21.
but on google it says sometimes they will hire to under 21s they just add a charge on
but no luck yet.
but id really like to hire a moped instead but can't seem to find anywhere close to alicante to hire them from
anyone any ideas?
thanks

Re: car / moped rental / hire HELP!!

No sorry I haven't. You are right there may e some places that let you if you have a years experience and are under 21 for an extra charge. I take it you have tried eurocar?

I don't know much about moped hiring, if there is such a thing I think they are likely to be small local companies. Maybe that goes for renting cars to under 21's too.

Try putting in google: Alquiler motos Alicant or Alicante.

Moto is moped in Spanish.
Alquiler: to rent

Travel Tips for Alicante

Botellón Rules

by gOdOtPm

A «botellón» (read it like bottah-john) is a massive street party where most of people go to drink and to find some friends. Life cost in Alicante is quite high in comparison to other towns nearby as Murcia or Albacete and, moreover, we are not used to go into crazy discos where poor music ruin our conversations. Most of people in Alicante enjoy wonderful weather living outdoors. They save a lot of money and make new friends joining a botellón. Pubs and local authorities are against this kind of parties since they lose a lot of money that otherwise would contribute to taxes. A 33 cl beer usualy costs 3 euros in a pub. One liter costs 2 euros in a 24/7. Sometimes whiskies and other expensive drinks are manipulated in pubs. Whatcha gonna do? Join the botellón! Don't let business kill a way of life!

What do you need to join a botellón? You just need to bring something to drink with you (alcoholic or non alcoholic beverages), some ice cubes (sold in gas stations and 24/7 stores), a couple of friends and a little piece of conversation. Is botellón legal? Well no. Tickets for "botellonning" out of controlled areas are close to 150 euros. So, you should be careful where you do your party. There are very few areas in town where police tolerate botellón. Be proper and please don't leave any any garbage behind you.

To reach the «oficial» Botellón spot you must follow Alfonso X el Sabio (the avenue passing by the Mercado Central) in the opposite direction to Plaza de los Luceros. It's located in the skirts of the castle and if you don't know the city too much, just follow anyone carrying drinks in plastic bags. Fridays and saturdays, from 11pm on.

Alicante's international...

by Sergioalc

Alicante's international airport is well connected with foreign countryes, specially with the UK (there are many flights from London and other British cities). If not, you can fly to Madrid, Barcelona or another Spanish airport to reach Alicante's one. By train is also possible (www.renfe.es) to arrive in Alicante and finally (why not!) by boat. Many cruise ships arrives to the harbour. It's possible to arrive by car baut is a long trip through the highway (from France or even from Portugal across many spanish regions).······· PHOTO: this is the ancient castle of 'Santa Barbara', in the 'Benacantil' Hill. From some pesrspectives, for many peope is possible to see an arabian's face. as i said before, in this castle Christians fought against Muslims when the Peninsule was invaded several centuries ago by Arabians.

A fun way to get on the castle of Santa Barbar

by little_mouse

This is a very nice and cosy way up which will lead you through a little mountainous sreets. I was walking in the evening, it was so peaceful and empty - i could hear the sound of my own steps crashing into the walls. Tiny streets with collourful houses and flowers pots on the road - few moments it seemed like i am going to the dead end and will step inside someones house. But dont worry - it will take you all the way up to the castle. I would recomend you to go through this experience instead taking a lift to the caste - it was a wonderful experience :-) !

Co-cathedral of Saint Nicholas of Bari

by DanielF

Alicante has not been an episcopal seat for a long time. This is the reason why the city does not boast an impressive cathedral. The seat of the bishop used to be in nearby Orihuela, but when the city grew in importance and size, the bishop moved to Alicante and the church of Saint Nicholas of Bari was consecrated as co-cathedral.

This is a Renaissance temple with early Barroque elements that is located at the end of Llauradors Street.
