I am starting the Camino Portuguese in early March and expect to arrive in Santiago de Compostela approximately 20 March. What is the best way to travel from SDC to Bilbao?

I have walked the Camino Francis 7 times, twice in 2017 and 2018. (2019)
The drive sounds great. Does anyone know what you need to rent a car in Spain? We have an American drivers license and a passport. I suppose you would have to purchase their insurance.

Planning to start the Camino Frances from St Jean at the end of May (2020).

If you're from outside the EU you will also need an international driver's permit. When I hire a car I always take the full insurance from the hire company. This means you are covered for all eventualities with no deductible and they won't hold a big deposit on your card.

I found a good priced airfare from Vigo to Bilbao. Took a short train ride from SDC to Vigo. Check fares from A Coruna too.

Plenty of low cost flights, but watch the extra charges for checked baggage, to print tickets, etc. I’m walking the Portuguese and the reverse on the Ingles in late May, then flying to Bilbao from A Coruña for 19€!
