Location information for Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of the historic and naturally beautiful Catalonia region. The area is not only known for its coastal beauty but also its historic importance. The city has many UNESCO World Heritage sites, and is surrounded by stunning national parks, monasteries and orchards. Self-driving is the best way to explore these attractions.

Transport

[transport]

The main air gateway is Barcelona El Prat Airport, located 25 minutes from the city centre. The city has a good and reliable bus and metro system. However, outside the city centre public transportation can be challenging. Car hire in Barcelona is probably the most convenient transportation option for those who want to explore most than just the city itself.

Car Hire Barcelona

There are plenty of options regarding car rental in Barcelona. Most major agencies have offices in the city centre, including Europcar, Sixt and Avis as well local firms. There are also rental offices available at the airport and train station. Self-driving is a popular option in Barcelona and booking ahead is a must to ensure availability.

Driving

Barcelona is well-connected to the Spanish road network. Three major motorways converge at the city, the E-90, AP-7 and AP-2. Roads are generally well-signposted and easy to navigate. Driving is a great way to explore other small towns and resorts along this part of the Spanish coast but during the peak summer months it is important to compare car hire rates and book early.

Things To See and Do

There are some amazing day trips that can be enjoyed from Barcelona. The stunning Montserrat monastery, nestled into the mountainside is a star attraction. Any art lover should not miss visiting Figueres, where the famous Dali Museum is located. To find the best beaches outside of Barcelona, head to Sitges south along the C-32 coastal road.

Best Time To Visit

Barcelona enjoys pleasant coastal weather almost all year around, with average temperatures of 20°C. The summer is the peak tourist season, when many Europeans head down to the Spanish coast. Temperatures during the summer range between 18°C and 28°C. The winter season is also pleasant, with temperatures hovering between 10°C and 15°C. September and October should be avoided, however, since this is the rainy season.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
