Getting around Festival Village

These Salou apartments are in the ideal location if you are wanting to get around and explore the Costa Dorada, the Festival Village is located on a fantastic public bus route with easy access to all cities and towns. However sometimes the best way to experience a country is to take to the roads and do your own exploring. You make your own timetable and visit all these places in the Costa Dorada and Catalunya area, which you couldn’t normally reach.

If you want a taste of adventure, but don’t want to spend too much time looking for the right car and the best places to go, then in reception you can be given advise on the best sizes of car for you party or for the type of journey you are planning. The hotel staff in the Festival Village has a fountain of information so you can also use their knowledge of the area to advice on the best places to visit.

To hire a car in Spain you need to be 21 years old or above and hold a current European licence or a British licence.
Driving tips and information: Drive on the right, overtake on the left. Yield right of way to all traffic coming from the right. Spanish drivers tend to use their horn during daytime or lights at night when passing other vehicles.
Note: On the motorways in Catalonia the word for exit is Sortida, while in the rest of Spain is Salida.
The maximum speed limit is 120 km/h (75 mph) on motorways, 100 km/h (62 mph) or 90 km/h (56 mph) on other roads and 50 km/h in towns and built up areas.

The best part of been all inclusive is that you do not have to worry about those extra pennies for food and drink as we have all that for you, so you can spend you extra cash on making the most of your holiday here in the Costa Dorada.
