The roads are well maintained, however, heavy traffic can be an issue – try to avoid driving during rush hours (from 8 to 9:30a.m., 12:30 to 2:30p.m., 3:30 to 5p.m. and 6:30 to 8:30p.m.; the quietest period is usually between 3 and 5p.m.). “Peajes” or toll roads are usually quite expensive. Since this might not be the news you wanted to hear, but on the other hand, a car hire in Spain is simple and affordable. There are plenty of car hire agencies to choose from, such as Sixt, Europcar, Keddy and more. If you'll be hiring a vehicle, keep in mind that the maximum BAC level is 0.05% for drivers of private vehicles. There is a Zero Tolerance Law for novice drivers who have held a driver's licence less than two years and for young drivers under the age of 21.
