Rent a car

Most major car rental agencies operate out of Santander including Hertz, Avis, and Europcar (affiliated with Alamo in the US). Cars may be rented with a valid License from your native country and a credit card. Whenever possible it is a good idea to reserve your car ahead of time and confirm the availability of the car you are requesting. This is particularly true if you wish to rent a vehicle with an automatic transmission, a luxury car or a van.

The trip from Santander to Garabandal should take under one hour. While the roads in Spain have been much improved in recent years it should be noted that much of this drive is on very narrow, winding mountain roads that demand caution and driving skill.
