We are coming to Salou in June and would like recommendations for car hire from airport. I.e. Companies that don't rip you off and preferably take cash as have been caught out too many times when they take credit cards. Many thanks Mike

Hi Mike, I use to book and usually Goldcar rentals. They have been very good on the 3 occasions I've used them. Book the car you want , choose unlimited mileage and free cancellation. Keep checking the website lastvtear I booked our case at the same time as our holiday,  10 days hire was £252. I checked a few times over the weeks in the run up to the hol, the cost went diwn to £150, the wk before we were sue to arrive it was £38 quid for 10 days. You can cancel as often as you like and it doesnt cost a penny. Take the Collison waiver and it about €1100 deposit. You do get that back.  Best peice if advice I can give. Watch for speed cameras, speaking from experience! I was done for doing 53km/h in a 50 just as I left the airport. The hire company charged me €45 to give the police my details the I received a fine of €60, 7 months after I returned home. I had no idea id even broken the law. 

Enjoy your time and if you can head up into the mountains behind Salou the scenery is stunning

Thanks Kytkat, but Goldcars is one of the companies I definitely would not use. I am now getting bus from airport and getting car for a few days if we decide we want one.
