Alas, an International driver's permit is now a European Union regulation for all non-EU drivers.

AAA-US says, sorry, only issued with US driver's license.

Spanish car rental agencies confirmed the requirement.

As an old retired marketing director, my favorite answer was the automated rely from a rental agency, "Thank you for your inquiry...etc. We are very busy at the moment and will respond within 10 to 15 days."

One may obtain an IDP from Zihua through a combination of internet and mail. but it takes more time than I have. My flight departs next Tuesday. My bad. I should have researched this earlier.

The La Rioja wine festival will just have to struggle along without me. Sigh...
