  1. So much could go wrong lol! The number of threads on Trip Advisor about car hire is huge, this could increase the number of people moaning about poor customer service and car problems and what about the insurance aspect? The mind boggles.

  2. Don’t worry, this is Spain. If it looks like it’s going to popular, then the vested interests will get it banned for competencia desleal – see Uber, BlaBlaCar etc.
