From Janet Anscombe (the paperwork requirement is presumably different for a hire car but I would have thought the physical items would remain the same:

It is compulsory for drivers to carry the following in a car:  two warning triangles, one reflective vest, spare wheel plus tools to change it. As of 2015, it is no longer mandatory to carry spare light bulbs or a spare pair of glasses. In addition, drivers must have the following documentation with them (or compulsados – officially stamped or notarized copies): driving licence; ITV sticker and report; permiso de circulación (equivalent to the log book). It is not obligatory to carry the following documentation in the car, but it is advisable: impuesto de circulación (road tax paid to the ayuntamiento); insurance certificate and proof of payment; European Accident Form.

Just picked up a car from this lot last Friday.. Pleasant man delivered it on time..Did the paperwork quickly, then I inspected the car..Oh dear the two front tyres were, shall we say borderline and didn't match the rear tyres for tread, looks like it was a pick and mix job. Car, a Peugeot 208 wasn't high mileage. But I asked the question posed above ,  does it have the jackets and the triangles..Only to be told, with a straight face, that these were not legal requirements in Spain and therefore not supplied   :o..

  It was only when I got to Correlejo that I discovered it didn't have a rear windscreen wiper fitted👹.. Presumably they have the same approach to maintenance it seems...Ok some folk might be happy as long as they are cheap and drive off in anything in which case fine..I won't be using them again though..You get what you pay for   :'(

Just back from a week on the island, had a Renault Clio from Pluscar. Car was in good condition, price was cheap and customer service was good. Didn't know I needed any warning triangles or hi viz jacket and these weren't supplied wth the car. Will definitely use them again in future.

Yes both the jacket and the triangle are a requirement of Spanish Traffic law with the potential for an on the spot fine if you haven`t got them. I agree the customer service ( other than the obvious) was good and the clio`s seemed to be new. But I`m back to Cicar or Autoreisen in the future.

Picked up car on Friday. Airport car park is being worked on. Pluscar collection was from bays near the ticket machine & not the usual spot. Not sure if this is temporary.

I also experienced this about 2 weeks ago and the enoying thing is that they never informed me of a change to pick up point, I went to area 431 to find it was enclosed behind the barriers, I called to be told they were up at 867, trudged all the way up did the paperwork only to be told I had to go back to area 200 to collect the car, I refused and told them that as no one told me about the changes by email, they better bring the car to me, and they did, when I returned the car 8 days  later it was up to 867, and I could see loads of people trudging up the car par. BTW the car was a very brigh Orange Fiat Qubo, in excellent condition petrol engine but very economical

No mention of numbers in new confirmation email

An AUTOS PLUS CAR representative will be waiting at FUERTEVENTURA
Airport (in the public car park). Leaving the airport by the door opposite
the arrivals gate "A" or "B".  Pass the zebra crossing and by the
ramp or the stairs you can access to the public car park. Go to the exit area of the parking lot (next to the parking ticket payment area)

We will complete the paperwork (contract) and take payment from your
credit or debit card there.

Hi, can anyone enlighten me.  So once you have crossed the road from the arrivals hall, walked up the steps or taken the ramp walkway and gone across the zebra crossing to the car park, do you turn right or left?  Been told its space 867 by Plus Car but not sure which way to direct our friends arriving next week.  They arrive late ish and haven't been before so won't to try and guide them in.... so to speak  :-[
thanks for any help

If you come out of arrivals near the Taxi Rank, turn left and cross at the first crossing. When you have gone up the stairs/ramp and crossed onto the car park, turn left and the Ticket Office is just past the covered exit barriers.
I would assume they will be in the bays behind the Ticket Office but I'm not prepared to stand up in court and say that.   ;D

Now I am confused, last word I got from Plus Car was to collect car from bay 432, not had any update re alternative collection point !!

Don't really wont to be trudging around the airport car parks trying to find my hire car, might e mail them to see if the collection point has changed !!

Airport (in the public car park). Leaving the airport by the door opposite
the arrivals gate "A" or "B".  Pass the zebra crossing and by the
ramp or the stairs you can access to the public car park. We will meet right
at the parking space NUMBER 432 (Parking meeting point)

Sweet Cheeks, they are not very good at updating customers who like us have booked well in advance.  I've got bookings for Aug, Oct and Christmas and all of them tell us to go to space 432.  It's only after reading on the forum that they've changed pickup points, that we know and thankfully friends who are arriving for the first time next week will now know and will go to the right place instead of wandering around the car park scratching their heads.

I suppose the uncertainty is being caused by the works at the Airport, including it seems, the Car Park.
I would go and look behind the Arrivals end Ticket Office and then walk down to the Departures one if they are not there.
We are over on 13th July and that will be my cunning plan.  :D

They provide you with a phone number so call them when you arrive to get the correct place in the car park in case what you printed from the website is out of date.

Got to say that I was impressed with Plus cars, car was in perfect condition (Renault Clio), very clean inside and out, also very good value compared to previous company's I have used .... will use again.

The Clio is on my possibles list when it comes to buying a car over there.

I would be interested in how it drove, particularly acceleration/pulling power as they seem to use the 1.2 75 HP version.

TIA   :D

Got to say excellent car very nippy and fantastic drive, very good fuel consumption, plenty of boot space, got two decent size cases in the boot with no problem,  I have a new Megane here in the UK, might change again in the next couple of years would certainly a Clio next time.

Either there or at the harbour in Rosario.
