Spanish in Spain

Cars and Driving

There are numerous, conveniently located, international car rental agencies in Spain. Most rental cars are equipped with standard transmission; however, for a significant increase in cost, one can rent a car with automatic transmission. One drives on the right-hand side of the road.

Pedestrians must cross at the crossing light, although many choose to simply cross whenever they see a clearing. Spainish drivers do not usually give pedestrians the right-of-way, so it is important to pay very close attention when crossing.
