Picking up your rental car upon arrival
Immediately after leaving the security checkpoint door in the arrivals area, turn right. There, in the public area of the arrivals level, you will find the counters of most of the car rental companies.
Counters and offices of all major car rental companies in the arrival area of Alicante Airport
All major car rental companies have their counters here (Hertz (Advantage Rent a Car), Goldcar, National Atesa, Centauro, Europcar, Record Rent A Car, Sixt, Auriga Crown Car Hire, Solmar Rent-A-Car , Avis ).
If your car rental company does not have counters here, follow the instructions on your booking. ( Smaller cheap car rentals e.g. Dickmann, have "mobile office vans" parked in the old parking area and carry out the processing there). Details of their exact location should be found on your car hire booking confirmation.
Pick up your rental car
After picking up the car keys at the car rental counter, go to the parking garage of the airport. The parking building is located opposite the terminal building at Alicante airport.
You can either take the elevator or escalator in the terminal building to level 1 and from there walk through the pedestrian tunnel to the parking garage.
You go down two levels to level -2 (the "bus" level) and cross the street to the parking garage.
