Car hire without problems - to Covadonga

by nomad7890 Online Now Apr 19, 2011 at 9:58 AM

I have been researching transportation from Oviedo to Covadonga. alsa.es has buses but we would have to stay there longer than we want to spend there - so am looking at renting a car. I rented a car via Hertz in Malaga before, but am looking into other companies. This is what we need:

- no hassles - I would like to pay all possible insurances so if I hit something I don't have any out of pocket expenses. I know, this is not optimal but I prefer it that way.

- pick up and return at reasonable hours. There's a Hertz and Avis right by the train station/bus station in Oviedo ... I am leaning in that direction except for the expen$e, but pick up is 9:30 am, so we will need to pick up late the date before. Anyone open earlier/later? The airport location is too far.

- need around 300 KM - we will only have the car for the 71 km. from Oviedo to the Covadonga sanctuary.

-no surprises - sometimes I'd rather pay more than have any car mileage or other surprise from a smaller rental.

I saw the other recommendations in this forum and did not care for the companies mentioned.

Any stable car companies or other suggestions? We just need the car for one day. I may just be renting from Avis and getting it over with - but if there is a better opiton I would welcome hearing about it. Thanks.

    You said you saw other car companies recommended on this forum and didn't care for the companies that were recommended. That makes it a bit difficult to recommend a company since we don't know which ones you don't like nor why.

    We have used the following and have had very good luck and I have no problem recommending them. Prices vary wildly so check prices and take the least expensive.

    http://www.autoeurope.com
    http://www.kemwel.com/
    and many many years ago http://www.sixt.com

    These are all reliable companies with good reputations.

    I hope you find what you want.

    Looks like these companies rent as long as it is for more than one day - web site is not accepting one day reservation.
