“When hiring a car, for example at an airport, who has the responsibility to ensure that the warning triangles and high visibility vests are in the car as required by Spanish law?”

It is the responsibility of the hire company, to check that the logbook and the vehicle´s equipment is ok before renting the car to a client.

Car hire with no hidden extras

So if you are stopped by the Guardia Civil, the owner will be responsible for an improperly equipped vehicle you have hired, unless the hire company can prove they gave you the car with all those things.

The fines related to insurance /ITV/ vehicle´s equipment / Logbook, are always for the owner who is responsible of his car.
