BARCELONA CAR HIRE - CAR HIRE IN BARCELONA SPAIN

Barcelona Car HireBarcelona Car Hire - If you are planning to travel to the outskirts of Barcelona, or planning to explore other cities in Catalonia or Spain, renting a car is an option. You may find that this option gives you more liberty, as you will be able to create your own schedules.

If you are not planning to leave the city, public transportation will suit you perfectly. It is not recommended to drive around the city, due to the difficulty of finding parking spaces. There are some underground parking garages, but at times even these are not to many. Moreover, not all hotels have parking facilities.

Also, if you are planning to travel around Barcelona, you may want to find out the toll fares to and from the place that you are visiting. It may come in handy to know that of all the autonomous communities in Spain, Catalonia pays the hightest toll rates. Take this into consideration when planning to rent a car to travel, because it may be cheaper to use other means of transportation, like the train, bus or even a low-fare flight.

When renting a Car in Barcelona you must have a valid driver´s license at the moment. Be sure that your driver´s license is not expired! Normally, you will not have any problems renting a car no matter which country your driver´s license is from. Nonetheless, keep in mind that if you do not have an International Driver´s License or a License from a European Union country, you can not drive in Spain for over a period of two months.
