I want to hire a car in Santiago Airport and drive to Ponferrada and leave the car there with same hire company, and walk back to Santiago. Is it possible? don't want to use buses. Will a hire company allow that, extra charge for them delivering it back to Santiago no problem, if you know what I mean.
 
Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

MickMac,
You might check what companies rent cars in SdC and email them your question.
Good luck and however/whenever you go Buen Camino.

Around 140 Euro. Put your dates up on the forum and you could well get car share buddies, even if its a small detour to say Sarria. Would offset a lot of the cost for you

I looked on Kayak and just plugged a day in September and it came back as 65US for a Toyota Aygo and for 4 more you could get an Opel Corsa from Alamo Rent A Car. Pick up at the Santiago Airport but for some reason you pick it up at Enterprise and drop it off at Enterprise too.

Looks like a good price. Looks like it could be slightly cheaper to rent from a Santiago city location (e.g. Enterprise) but the convenience of picking up at the airport may be worth it.
Taxi would cost around 280 Euros.
