Top Tips

  • Driving while wearing headphones is banned in Spain, with the exception of hearing aids.
  • Driving in a tunnel while wearing sunglasses is forbidden.
  • One of Spain’s larger cities, Bilbao has a high volume of traffic. Therefore, try to avoid driving in the city centre during the rush hour.

Which companies offer best value in Bilbao?

If you are keen to avoid hidden fuel charges, we recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy. Plenty of suppliers in Bilbao offer cars with this policy, and as long as you drop off the car with a full tank, you won’t have to pay any refuelling costs. Don’t forget to look at the ratings and reviews next to each listing, so you can gain an understanding of which companies rank the best in terms of customer satisfaction and value for money.

Day trips from Bilbao

San Sebastian: One of Spain’s most attractive, charming and popular cities, San Sebastian can be reached in around 70 minutes by car from Bilbao. Known as the ‘Pearl of the North of Spain’, this coastal town has plenty to offer the many visitors who flock here. In terms of natural beauty, there are the surrounding mountains and magnificent sandy beaches. The city also boasts fabulous architecture, great restaurants and a wide selection of bars to choose from.

Pamplona: The capital of the Navarre province, Pamplona is best known for the Running of the Bulls — one of Spain’s (and Europe’s) most famous festivals. During this legendary event, held in conjunction with the Fiesta de San Fermín from 6th-14th of July, the bulls are led through the streets of the Old Quarter by runners.

However, there is much more to Pamplona than this legendary festival alone. The town boasts beautiful architecture, fascinating museums and a wide selection of tapas bars and restaurants offering the best of Spain’s culinary delights. This incredible destination can be reached in just under two hours when driving from Bilbao.

La Rioja: Situated less than a two-hour drive from Bilbao, the Rioja wine region borders Southern Navarra, Castilla y León and the Basque country. With stunning scenery, prehistoric archaeological findings, medieval towns and fine Riojan manor houses, there is much more to this idyllic location than wineries.
