Car hire in Madrid
Hiring a car in Madrid
The capital of Spain is a fantastic destination to explore with a hire car. It is known for its wide avenues, vast stretches of green spaces and incredible art galleries. Like many large cities, it is made up of a variety of neighbourhoods, each with their own charm and specific delights to discover. From the sweeping Plaza Mayor to the tiny, tucked away tapas restaurants, Madrid will draw you in.
Getting to the city centre from the airport can be easily achieved by driving on the M-14 and A-2. If departing from Terminal four, then the M-12 and M-13 should be used.
What you need to know
Hire cars can be arranged from Madrid Airport (MAD), the city centre or four train stations, including Atocha. The largest selection is available from the airport; with a dozen car hire companies operating out of the hub. The majority of these are rated excellent, very good and good.

Where to pick up your car
You can collect your hire car at terminals one and four at Madrid Airport, depending on which terminal you are arriving at. Some hire car companies that don’t have desks inside the airport offer complimentary shuttle bus services to ensure you can get your vehicle with minimum fuss and set off to check into your hotel without the need for a transfer.
Similarly, cars picked up from train stations can be found conveniently close by. With Atocha being such a landmark and connecting to many destinations in Europe, it is a good place to order a car from, as there are more than ten companies to choose from.
