Important information about Barcelona car rentals

When visiting sunny Barcelona, you’ll need a car to visit some of the beautiful beaches surrounding the city. Leave your Barcelona car rental parked while you explore the main tourist attractions downtown, like the Casa Batlló and the iconic Sagrada Familia Cathedral. The rental cars in Barcelona will also come in handy getting to the Park Güell to see the famous Gaudi buildings and sculptures, as well as the Barcelona skyline. Cheap car rentals in Barcelona can be found at any of the 50 or so car rental agencies across the city. The main avenue crosses the city center diagonally and is adequately named Avinguda Diagonal. On-street parking with parking meters have time restrictions and rates depending on the location. There are various parking garages around the city as well. You might find free parking for your car rental in Barcelona in the Montjüic area where there aren’t any parking meters.

Barcelona is difficult getting around town without public transportation, a bicycle, or a car. Some of the top attractions like the Casas Milà and Batlló and the Placa de Catalunya are at walking distance from one another, but the famous Parc Güell, for example, is up a steep hill and over twenty blocks away from other sights. The Montserrat Monastery is one of Spain’s top tourist attractions. It’s about a one-hour drive from the city center and definitely worth the trip. If you drive south down the coast, you’ll make it to Sitges in under an hour. It’s an upscale town on the beach. If you’re looking for picturesque Mediterranean beaches, go north to the beautiful Costa Brava. It’s a day trip you can make in under two hours. Car rental locations in Barcelona are scattered all over the city but mainly concentrated near the Sants Train Station. Barcelona is known for its traffic and congested roads downtown, so you’ll want to try avoiding driving during the peak hours. Parking is feasible depending on the neighborhood and there are parking garages scattered across the city as well.

In Spain they use the metric system. Remember this when reading speed limit signs and distances, as they will be indicated in kilometers. There are two official languages in Catalonia, therefore many of the signs will be in both Spanish and Catalan. In Spain, they do not have the "right on red" law so you will always have to wait for lights to turn green. They also tend to have traffic circles instead of intersections regulated by traffic lights. Remember to yield to the cars already circling in the traffic circle before entering, they have the right of way. If you’re on your way to the beach, bear in mind it’s illegal to drive with flip-flops or sandals in Spain. Barcelona is known for its nightlife, so please, leave your Barcelona car rental behind if you plan on drinking. Before picking up your car rental in Barcelona, check with the city’s department of motor vehicles in case any laws have been updated or changed.

For car rentals in Barcelona, there are certain rules concerning driving a rental car across a border. Some companies charge a supplemental fee to cross the Schengen zone, so it is best to check with the rental company before renting a car. It is also necessary to let the company know you are crossing a border before getting a cheap car rental in Barcelona, as some might not allow it. Not notifying the rental company before you take it across a border could violate your rental agreement and incur other fees. Be specific with border control agents on how long you intend to visit the country you are planning on going to. Drivers should always carry as many identification documents as possible in the event they are questioned when trying to enter a country or return to one. These documents include a driver’s license, passport, and all the Barcelona car rental paperwork, and it is especially important to show proof of car registration when crossing any border in a vehicle.

To get cheap car rentals in Barcelona using cash, there may be a few companies willing to do so, but you will pay extra fees and the general overall rental rate will be higher. Some companies might allow money orders or other forms of cash-type payments, but there will be large up-front deposits before you get an electric car rental or another car. Other companies may use Cash Deposit Identification (ID) Card system, but it’s recommended to check with the company before your trip. Be cautious of scams involving cash for rental cars and make certain you understand the agreement before signing any documents. To use a credit or debit card, please note that you must show a driver’s license and other identification, such as a passport, that shows the same name that is on the driver’s license. A hold is usually placed on the card while the economy car rental is leased, and for debit cards be aware that the hold is placed on your bank account.

For car rentals in Barcelona, some companies may require you to have an International Driver's Permit. These must be presented with a valid driver’s license. Also, note that an International Driver's Permit is not acceptable when presented without a driver’s license. At the very least, drivers must have a valid driver’s license and another form of identification like a passport. Other acceptable forms of identification include a plane ticket or vehicle insurance card. Also, the name must match on all documents. Drivers must be 18 years of age for car rentals in Barcelona. It is best to check with the rental company, but some agencies charge extra fees for drivers younger than 25.
