Car Hire at Barcelona Airport

Car Hire

The five main car hire firms who offer good value for money are all located on the first floor of Terminal 1 and in Terminal 2 in modules B (next to arrivals area) and C (next to the baggage reclaim area).

The city of Barcelona is only a 12km drive from the airport and it is a very direct and well signposted route which is easy to manoeuvre with a newly acquired hire car which you are still a unfamiliar with. Always drive on the right hand side of the road and take extra care if you are exiting from service stations or restaurants on the opposite side of the road,.

it is also better to leave the rent a car behind if you are planning on having a drink as the law in Spain allows just 0.5 mg of alcohol which is toucher than the UK limit of 0.8. And if you are a new driver it is better not to drink at all with an even lower 0.1 mg limit.

Also make sure you belt up as seat belts are obligatory in the back and front of the car and if you have your family with you then under 12s cannot travel in the front unless strapped in using a restraint system. In the back of the car passengers who are less than 135cm tall must be strapped in with approved safety devices and restraints. You can order these extras when reserving your hire car.

There are many other Barcelona Airport rent a car companies situated on the outskirts of the airport, but again for easy access and speedy collection of your hire car the companies listed below will be able to provide you with a competitive quote.
