Default Ship a car to Spain.

Anyone any experience of shipping cars from ME to Spain just for the summer?

I know it can be done as have seen many Dubai and Saudi plated cars around Marbella.

Fed up driving crap hire cars, just come back after Easter hols using a new BMW 1 series, tiny and boring, "but it's a BMW" said the rental man!

bearing in mind its likely to cost around €3,000 for a round trip, why dont you just hire a nice car?

Thanks Admon, that's the kind of info I am looking for.

Car rental firms all offer Mercs and Beemers but are all the lowest specced possible, hence my crappy 1 series BMW!

The family spend most of the summer break in Spain so I thought it might have been worth it to ship a car out there ahead of time.

what about getting someone to take a car from UK (ok its rhd), or even buy an older spanish model to keep at your apartment/villa, if you are over there regularly - spending €2000 a year on hire could warrant buying instead.
