Renting a car in La Linea de la Concepcion is a great way to travel for those who like to travel in comfort.

How long is best to rent a car in La Linea
In Spain, it is best to rent a car for at least a week or two. There is so much to see in this country that you want to see everything at once. Drive along the beaches, visit nature parks, have a ride along the coast with great views, visit small scenic villages, walk amongst the old quarters of the big cities and much, much more.
But if you're not ready for such a long trip yet, take a car for a few days and visit only the top attractions. Even a short trip will be a memorable experience.
Which car to choose ↵
It all depends on your plans for the vacation and the number of travelling companions.
- An economy car will take you anywhere on flat terrain without any problems. So, if you are travelling alone or with your partner and want to save a lot of money, opt for a compact car.
- A mid-size car is suitable for 3-5 people.
- It makes sense to rent a crossover if you are planning a trip to the mountains. This car is most responsive and reliable on steep serpentines.
- A minivan is suitable for a group of friends planning a trip together. You just need to agree on what time to get up and where to go. If the group has different plans, it is better to take two smaller cars.
- A convertible is the ideal car for walks with beautiful sea views, sunset watching, and night drives under the stars!

Places to visit by a rental car
Located 19 km from La Linea de la Concepcion, the Zoo de Castellar, a petting zoo, offers the opportunity to see and even touch panthers, lions, lemurs, parrots, snakes, and other animals. You can also feed some animals by buying the food at the zoo.
About 20km away is a small but interesting town of Algeciras. A mix of Christian, Muslim, and African cultures. Few architectural monuments have survived, like an aqueduct built in the 18th century and a beautiful harbour. But there are plenty of restaurants with Moroccan food and a very beautiful beach.
If you like bathing in hydrogen sulphide springs, go to the Hedionda Roman Baths in Casares (35 km away). You will experience beautiful nature, a specific smell, and several natural healing baths. A family of aquatic turtles live nearby.
And you should not skip Ronda, which is 100 km away. It's a small town miraculously sitting on the edge of a steep cliff.
One of the most stunning locations is the 100 m deep gorge El Tajo de Ronda, spanned by the famous 18th century bridge Puente Nuevo. Full of Moorish architecture, this city looks like a living illustration for a book of Oriental Fairy Tales.
Málaga is 130 km away. The capital of Andalusia has a Roman theatre, the Historic Botanical Garden of La Concepcion, the Cathedral, and shopping malls.
Have a great trip!
