BUT ... we do advise it as it is a 2 km walk to the nearest beach and to the bars and restaurants in Los Alcázares.
It will make life easier and allow you to get out and about to see the beautiful countryside of Murcia, and play those other courses.
It is also a 40 minute taxi drive from Murcia International Airport at Corvera and will cost around €70 to Roda
We are not affiliated with any of the companies listed.
Either ourselves or guests have used them and found them to offer good service.
At the Airport
There are several hire companies based in Murcia International airport including Gold Car and SolMar.
You can book direct with them on the internet but we have found it cheaper to go via one of the "brokers" listed below.
|We have used both of these companies ourselves:|| :|
|Recommended by guests:|
There are a number of hire companies based locally who will deliver to you in the apartment.
There are also a couple based in Los Alcazares.

Direct Rental versus Brokers
Ibercar and Al Andalus are both direct rental companies.
The rest are "brokers" and negotiate deals with all the actual rental companies and offer some great savings rather than going direct.
They offer competitive prices, but it is worth trying them all, including the direct rental companies, as one may have offers on and can be cheaper than the others.
Personal Car Hire Insurance
Most of the rental companies listed above now offer extra insurance for damaged wheels, which has been a major problem in Spain over the last few years as people are taking cars off-road. Also check out whether glass is covered.
It may also be worth purchasing your own insurance before setting off for Spain.
Check out these two companies: Insurance4CarHire or iCarInsurance
Collection & Drop Off
Cars can sometimes be collected at one airport and returned to another at no extra charge.
However, Hertz charge approximately €50 to do this.
