We go back in time to see the most legendary cars from ‘73 until today. From the DeLorean of Back to the Future, to James Bond’s Aston Martin. Would you join us?
45 years of travelling the world together
Everything has changed since 1973, except the desire to go and hit the road with you, to continue discovering places that can only be seen on the horizon of an adventurous spirit.
Live with us the passage of time, the moments we have shared together... since traveling went from being a minority activity to be a vital need, summer after summer, for everyone.
Benidorm, 1973: we started in Benidorm that summer with 6 Seat 600, and from there we expanded to the entire Mediterranean coast with the tourist boom. As time went on, there were more of us travelers wanting to go further. Going on vacation became something accessible to everyone.
The 90s, centauro.net and virtual traveling, discovering the world on the net and crossing borders with the click of a mouse. This adventure we had to live with you, and we embarked on building the first e-commerce of the sector in Spain, www.centauro.net, back in 1998.
International passport: from 2010 until today, Rome, Milan, Madeira, Lisbon, Faro, and Oporto already sound like Centauro destinations, and we promise to continue bringing you to your dream places every year.
By land and by air: we know that you like to reach our destinations by plane, but also by train. Since 2015 you can find us at the main AVE stations.
And along the way, we have changed the way we dress, talk, travel, enjoy music, the world, and its possibilities. How we have changed!
Let everything change, except the desire to travel the world together.
Many things have changed since 1973 until today, but we love to enjoy the summer even more. Do you know how people lives the summer in 1973?
Do you remember what it was like to travel by car? The whole family went crammed like sardines in a Seat 600, but... we were so happy. Long live the 70s and car trips!
We traveled back in time to the 70s to remember how we enjoyed the picnics of yesteryear, when we got lost with our car on little-traveled roads.
Can you imagine a road trip without your favorite music in the background? Nothing would have been the same without those songs that have been with us in the journeys of our lives... We have recovered from the past the summer songs from the 70s until today.
We go on a journey to the past from the beaches of 1973 until today, to see how the bikini has evolved throughout history. Would you join us?
This study, compiled from 1,300 interviews across Spain, aims to make a 'still picture' of how road trips have evolved since 1973 (when the company was born) until 2018; and collect relevant information about changes in the habits and customs of Spanish drivers.
Francisco Devesa - father of the current CEO, Erik Devesa-, started the Centauro Rent a Car business in 1973 with a small fleet of 6 yellow 'Seat 600' in the city of Benidorm.
