Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Barcelona Airport! Then drive into the city and explore Barcelona neighborhoods like Ciutat Vella, Gràcia, and Eixample. Each of them offers so much to see and do. Park outside La Rambla and walk the full length of Barcelona’s most famous street. And check out Gaudi’s architectural creations—not just the impressive Sagrada Familia, but many other buildings throughout the city.

The local cuisine is varied and delicious, and make sure you visit local markets to buy fruits and vegetables grown in Catalonia. Check out one of the city’s countless festivals and celebrations. And when you get tired of all the hustle and bustle, drive your rental to the nearby Montserrat mountain range or the beautiful sandy beaches in Castelldefels.

Barcelona is stunning, but why not explore the rest of Spain too? With a longer term car rental you can see more of Catalonia, head west to the beautiful Basque region or travel down the coast to Valencia, Murcia, or as far as Andalusia. You can even pick up your rental car at Barcelona Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your Spanish adventure now!

Barcelona Airport is also called El Prat Airport and Aeroport de Barcelona–el Prat.
