Serving Spain’s second-largest city and the region of Catalonia, Barcelona Airport (also known as El Prat Airport situated 12km from Barcelona) is one of the most popular pick-up locations for people hiring cars to discover Northern Spain.
Not only is it conveniently situated 12km (7.5 miles) away from Barcelona’s city centre, it is also a great place for people to start visiting locations nearby the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada: such as Malgrat de Mar, Lloret de Mar, Sitges and Tarragona.
However with a myriad of car hire companies seeking to serve Barcelona Airport’s 35 million passengers, knowing who to hire from can be difficult. We aim to make the search and selection process as easy as possible so you know what you are getting.
Book through Rentalcars.com for exclusive prices and no credit card charges and amendment fees.
To bring you fantastic deals, we work with all the major car hire companies (like Hertz, Sixt and Avis), as well as local firms such as Goldcar and Centauro.
Getting the best deal isn’t all about price, we also know it’s about best value for money and overall experience. In one simple search you can compare car hire at Barcelona Airport and access customer reviews that provide you with honest and helpful advice. You can see company ratings and reviews by each car when you search on our site.
Some companies at Barcelona have off-airport locations where you wait for a shuttle to take you to their pick-up location. These companies often offer cheaper car hire prices but for more convenience we recommend choosing a company located on-airport.
When companies offer free additional drivers we will highlight this next to the car details, if this is not highlighted please don’t forget to check the price of adding drivers in the terms and conditions.
We understand people want to avoid hidden fuel-charges, that’s why we recommend hiring cars from companies offering a full-to-full fuel policy — as long as you refill the tank just before the end of your rental, you won’t pay any extra fuel fees when you drop the car off.
You will be spoiled for choice with the range of cars at Barcelona Airport. Cars include mini and economy vehicles (small and easy to park), intermediate cars (like an Audi A3), convertibles (great if you want to drive in style) and 7-seater people carriers (ideal for large groups needing plenty of luggage space).
