What tips are there for hiring a car in Barcelona?

  • Barcelona has plenty of underground parking lots, and numerous metered parking zones have been introduced. Parking is not allowed in spaces with yellow stripes.
  • Mopeds and motorbikes are a very popular mode of transport in Barcelona. This means that you should be extra cautious when driving through the city centre.
  • The speed limits in Barcelona are 50 km/h on main roads in the city centre, 100 km/h on clearways, and 120 km/h on motorways.

Which companies offer best value in Barcelona?

You will find great deals from international car hire companies (like Hertz, Alamo, Sixt), as well as national firms such as Centauro and Goldcar. You can see ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing, so you can find out which companies people had the best rental experience with. If you’re keen to avoid hidden fuel charges, book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (as you won’t pay any extra fuel fees if you drop the car off with a full tank).

Where can I drive to near Barcelona?

PortAventura: A great day out for the whole family, PortAventura is a huge theme park in the resort of Salou (a 90-minute drive from Barcelona). The park has five themed areas based around historic civilisations (such as Polynesia and the Far West), and is home to Shambhala — a roller coaster with the longest drop in Europe. PortAventura also has a water park if you want to spend some time cooling off from the Spanish heat.

Girona: The beautiful city of Girona is also just a 90-minute drive from Barcelona, so why not see two Catalonian cities during your visit? Brimming with medieval architecture, you can explore the walled ‘Old Quarter’ and see the Roman remains at the Força Vella fortress. Girona also has plenty of fantastic restaurants, shops and museums for you to enjoy.

Montserrat Mountain: The multi-peaked mountain of Montserrat can be reached in an hour from Barcelona; so escape the city and take in the spectacular landscapes. The mountain is also the site of Santa Maria de Montserrat — a Benedictine abbey accessible by road.
