PORTLAND, Maine, Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Auto Europe, one of the industry's first global car rental service companies, reveals its predictions for the top 3 road trip destinations in Spain for 2017. These predictions made by Auto Europe's seasoned reservations team are based on advanced bookings made for 2017 in combination with a review of car rental rates in Spain along with global travel data.
The capital city and surrounding region of Extremadura are the perfect destination for history buffs as well as off-the-beaten-path travelers. Extremadura's relative obscurity makes it a perfect destination to immerse oneself in the culture of the area without having to fight crowds. The dramatic landscape of the region translates to an unforgettable European road trip destination.
#2. San Sebastian
The stunning seaside paradise is the hidden gem of Basque Country. Coming off its designation of Europe's Capital of Culture in 2016, the city's popularity among North American travelers is beginning to sky rocket as more and more travelers discover the rich culinary traditions, pristine beaches, and many hiking trails.
Travelers to this vibrant city can expect a diverse mix of history, art, nightlife and nature when visiting this Andalusian port city. Malaga's popularity as a car rental pickup destination grew considerably in 2016 among Canadian travelers, a trend that's expected to continue in early 2017.
"North American travelers are embracing the idea of off-the-beaten path travel and are electing to discover areas farther outside the well-known Spanish destinations such as Madrid & Barcelona," states Scott Braun, Auto Europe's Chief Marketing Officer. "Each of these cities and their surrounding regions offer unforgettable settings to Drive to Discover."
