Location information for Zaragoza

Introduction

Zaragoza is the capital of the Spanish province of the same name and one of the country's oldest cities. Tourists often overlook the city, but this is completely undeserved. Zaragoza has an impressive historical center and many cultural events are organized every year.

Population

The city has over 700,000 inhabitants.

Location

Zaragoza is not only the province's capital, but also the capital of the autonomous community of Aragon, one of the former kingdoms of Spain. This region is located in the northeast of the country, west of Catalonia. Zaragoza is built on the Ebro River. The surroundings are diverse, ranging from desert-like (Los Monegros) to densely forested hills.

Economy

The University of Zaragoza is one of the oldest and most prominent universities of Spain. Technology plays an important role in local economy (south of Zaragoza lies the Parque Technológico), as does logistics. The latter because of the city's central location between Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia. The city's airport is the fourth-largest on the Iberian Peninsula for freight traffic. There are also a large Opel factory, a factory for household appliances and a factory for the production of trains. The Spanish air force has a base nearby and the city houses the Academia General Militar.

Airports

Zaragoza Airport is situated 16 kilometers west of the city center. Besides the Spanish airline Iberia, budget airline Ryanair carries out many flights to Zaragoza. The airport is easily reachable by rental car from the city's beltway. The way to the airport is already clearly signposted from the center.

Public Transport

The city has an extensive network of city buses, exploited by Transportes Urbanos de Zaragoza (TUZSA). During weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) there are also night buses. Zaragoza is developing a streetcar network. At the moment, there's one line: the north-south line between Valdespartera and Parque Goya. Two lines are expected to be added in 2015 or 2016: between Las Fuentes and Delicias, and between La Jota and Torrero. Zaragoza lies on the AVE high-speed train line. The Spanish capital Madrid can be reached in 1.5 hours by train; to Barcelona it takes 15 minutes longer.

Traffic and Parking

Zaragoza is a busy city and in the center free parking places in the street are hard to find. It's no problem though, as there are many parking garages (mostly underground) in and around the center, where you can safely (and coolly) park your rental car. There are also excellent road connections with the rest of Spain: from the beltway, freeways run north, east, south and west.

Hotels

It's best to visit Zaragoza in the spring or fall, at least if you want to avoid the hottest time of the year. In June and July it gets really hot in the city. On the other hand it then gets really entertaining in the center in the evening and until deep in the night. August isn't a good month either, as most locals then go on holiday and over half the bars, restaurants and many smaller hotels are closed. Zaragoza has an enormous choice of accommodations, to suit everybody's purse and scattered around the city. Because of the large choice, you don't have to book your room in advance, unless you want to stay at a specific hotel or if you want to visit Zaragoza during the El Pilar Festival (October).

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
