Do you have a recommendation on what car agency you use to rent a car in Spain for someone who has a license from the US?


Hi US license holders! What car agency you use to rent a car in Spain? If so, which agency did you use? EUROPCAR wouldn’t rent me a vehicle because I didn’t show them an “international license”. I might be mistaken, but I thought just the US a license was enough.


These are the answers of some Facebook group members:

“I’ve never had an issue with my US license. I think we’ve used Europcar. Sixt is decent too.”


“I’ve used Centauro to rent a car a few times with no issues. You gotta check their locations to see if you have any of them near”

“Must be the Europcar branch you used, as I’ve rented from them numerous times and had no problem without an international license. In addition, I’ve rented from Centauro Car, Goldcar, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty. All with my basic US (Maryland) license.”

“Technically you need the international driver’s license if you are stopped by the police but usually the rental agencies do not ask for it.”
