Hiring a car from Santiago to Zafra or ???

Hey Ivar,
We will be flying into Santiago on August 18.
We'd like to begin walking a little north of Sevilla ... maybe Zafra?
We're hoping maybe it won't be quite so hot?

Anyway... it's inexpensive (about 44 Euros each) but a long bus ride and we wondered what it would cost to hire a car?

We also wondered if anyone else out there in Pilgrim land would be interested in sharing a car for that trip?
 
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).
Camino walkers love this gripping, intriguing, mystery with history novel.

Hi Annie, I know this is off the topic, but if you want to splurge on accommodation in Zafra we stayed at the Parador there. We stayed in a total of 6 Paradors through out Spain and this would have to be the best of them all - even better than the one at the Alhambra. Located in a fantastic old castle and just glorious. So if you want a last minute treat, check them out. Cheers, Jane

Thanks Jane. The one splurge I did on the Frances was in a Parador. I had walked the Meseta in the rain, was cold, sick, and weary and the alburgue was "completo." I dropped a bundle for a night of rest and privacy and it was worth every penny! That one night really refreshed me! So I know what you're saying!

I don't think we'll begin our Camino in the Parador, however, but thanks for the tip.
I"ll save that for 6 weeks into the trip when I'm weary and need some special care.

Even if you do not stay at the Parador in Zafra do have a drink and some tapas there. I have to agree with Janeh that it is one of the best with a really lovely courtyard. Again off topic but there are a number of paradors on the VdlP, we stayed at the one in Placencia just after it had opened.

I am not sure if you can drop of a hire car in Zafra but I suspect you can we have left cars in some very small towns over the years in Spain. You will probably have to use one large hire companies.

Buen Camino
William
