The summer has already begun a few days ago with a general rise in temperatures. Many of us are already looking forward to going down to the beach and enjoying the sea, although some have already done so. Especially the people who already live here.

There are only a few days left for people to be able to travel again and we are starting to make tousands of plans on how to spend the best summer of our lives. The ideal picture is lying on the beach, enjoying the sun, sand and sea water. Meanwhile the coastal towns are preparing as best they can for our arrival.

The Valencian Community is one of the most important sun and beach tourist destinations in the world. Tourists come to these beaches from all over the world, mainly by plane. The most important gateways are Alicante and Valencia airports.

How to get to these beaches?

If we arrive by plane the most comfortable way is to rent a car at Alicante Airport or Valencia Airport.

If we are already here, Victoria Rent a Car in Calpe offers us a large fleet of vehicles of all types. From the smallest ones, to luxury car rental in Calpe and the whole Marina Alta.

In case we cannot go to any of their offices, always ask for the car rental delivery at the hotel, villa or apartment where we are staying. This is a service with no extra cost for the client.

At the same time there is a large fleet scooter rental in Calpe with delivery to the customer’s home.
