Car rental Barcelona

Hi there,

Would anyone happen to have any recommendations for good car rental companies that are of good quality and that you can get for a good price, ideally close to the airport?

1. Re: Car rental Barcelona

Lots of information on the forum about car rentals.

In summary - avoid the places that appear to be cheap because they will aggressively up-sell very expensive insurance when you collect the vehicle. It makes sense to have your own pre-purchased specialist rental car insurance because it's much cheaper than that pushed by the rental companies (if you only rent for a day then local might be a bit cheaper). Be aware that if you don't buy their insurance they will put a hold for a damage deposit on your credit card. This will be substantial. Book direct through one of the international companies (Avis, Sixt, Hertz, Europcar for example). Their initial prices will be higher but after extras there isn't much difference, plus they are more professional and, in my experience, less aggressive when upselling. Avoid full/empty fuel policies.

The international companies have offices in the airport.
