Enjoy Valencia renting your Smart Car right at the airport
If you already know Wiber, you’ll be aware that last spring we launched our Smart Car service. Turning one year old, this service has proved to be very useful as its feature to be an airport car pick-up, allowing you to skip stopping by the offices entirely, and doing all your paperwork on your smartphone. We send you an e-mail that tells you the parking spot number where your rental car is parked, and a link that you will use to open your car without a key. Once opened, this link will work as a geolocator for your car, meaning you will not forget where you parked (it happens way more than you can imagine!).
Another advantage for our Smart Car is that it works under the same conditions than our All Inclusive rate, meaning that you will be protected by our Top Cover insurance to have a fully relaxed holiday experience, as you will also won’t need to leave an excess fee or a deposit: all of your money will be available on your account, ready to use for anything you need.
The best thing is that you will be able to really squeeze the most out of your holidays, since you can drop-off your Smart Car straight at the airport at any time of the day or the night, whether it is inside or outside of our opening hours. We know that when you have an early flight, this is an amazing advantage, so you don’t have to rely on taxis or buses.
Valencia: way more than “Fallas”, “paella” and “horchata”
One of the most popular things about Valencia is the “paella valenciana” (a typical dish of rice and vegetables with meat or seafood), famous enough for Gordon Ramsay to create his own version of it, which most Valencians find controversial to say the least. And as dessert, you can try their horchata, a traditional cold, sweet beverage made from the “xufa” (tiger nut), that could remind you of almond or walnut milk.
And of course, the Fallas, although in 2020 have been delayed due to force majeure, are one of the Spanish festivities that bring more tourists to the country, especially since they were added to UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage list. These festivities are being prepared all year round: every “casal fallero” creates their own “falla”, an ironic representation of the current Spanish panorama, and since they cost a lot of money (sometimes even millions), they fund them with events at the casal. These are ephemeral art representations, as they are burnt on March 19th (Saint Joseph, Father’s Day in Spain too).
But Valencia has a lot more to offer: you can sunbathe on its wonderful beaches of Las Arenas and La Malvarrosa, take a walk around the city centre and enjoy the beautiful architecture of its Mercado Central or the Lonja de la Seda, as well as the famous City of Arts and Science by the renown Santiago Calatrava, or look at the interior of San Nicolás church, a tiny Sistine Chapel, Valencian style. If you are feeling energized, you can take the stairs up to the highest point of the Micalet, the cathedral’s bell tower, where you can enjoy an aerial view of Valencia’s city center. Or you can simply take a walk around its most iconic neighbourhood, el Carmen, and get lost in its sinuous streets and the graffiti and other street art that embellishes it, or sit on a local coffee shop of Plaza de la Virgen.
