Top tips for hiring a car in Catalonia

  • You can rent the car model of your choice to drive around the city from Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport. This airport is home to all the major Catalonia car rental companies, such as Enterprise, Avis, Budget, SIXT, and Hertz. You can reserve your rental car online and pick it up when you arrive to avoid waiting in lines and wasting more time at the airport. The offices of these car rentals are located in the main terminal of Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport.
  • Always inspect the condition of your rental car before setting out on your excursion, especially the brakes, wheels, and steering. This can help to reduce the number of incidents that may occur while driving a rented vehicle in Catalonia. When driving on Catalonia's major routes, such as the South-Northbound Highway, West-Eastbound Highway, and Southwest-Northeast bound Highway, please avoid allowing emotions to take over. Many bicyclists cross these roadways without looking for oncoming traffic. While another driver merges into a separate lane without informing the car behind him.
  • The kind of vehicle you rent will depend on how many passengers you plan to transport to the city. If you are going alone and transporting only two pieces of luggage, consider renting an economy car in Catalonia. If you're moving with friends or a family of five, consider renting a compact or an intermediate SUV. The best SUVs for off-road travel are the mid-size models. If you need to transport some of the heavy luggage from one place to another within Catalonia, consider using Pick-Up which has wide space at the back able to accommodate more than 5 pieces of luggage.
  • Don't allow a disability to prevent you from exploring Catalonia. In Catalonia, those with reduced mobility can rent a car without the assistance of a surrogate driver. Catalonia car rental firms provide vehicle types that provide these persons with appropriate adaptable equipment. These vehicles, for example, have spinner knobs, which aid in steering rotation, a panoramic mirror, a swivel seat, hand controls, and left-foot accelerator extensions. The adaptable equipment in the rental car makes people with limited mobility to travel with ease in Catalonia.
