Car Hire in Barcelona – El Prat Airport

Compare prices and save money on your car hire in Barcelona – El Prat Airport

Barcelona is Catalonia’s jewel and one of the most alluring cities in Spain. And rightly so, not only for its nightlife and its liveliness but for its numberless cultural activities too. Why then should not a tourist hire a car in Barcelona? The perfect arrival point is El Prat airport, located some ten kilometers away from Barcelona and where the best car hire agencies are active (namely, Europcar, Budget, Dollar, AVIS, Atesa, and Sixt.) On Gocarhire.co.uk you can compare every hire car offered by each agency. Our online price-comparison system allows you to choose the best car in your budget and reserve it at home. In this way you will avoid any useless queue at the Barcelona airport. Once you are at El Prat, it is enough to reach the agency’s desk with your driving license, credit card, and the reservation voucher that we sent you. In a few minutes you will be on the road to Barcelona!

What to do in Barcelona – El Prat Airport

Barcelona is a city of infinite landscapes – from urban to seaside. You just need to go to Barceloneta to feel the warm sand on your skin. Of course, you can dive in the sea too! Culture is also varied. In Barcelona you can find some of the most interesting museums in Spain. Do not miss the Picasso Museum and the Joan Mirò Foundation Museum. However, Barcelona is a kind of open-air museum itself. Just think about Casa Batlò and Casa Mila by Gaudi, two architectural masterpieces. By the way, if Gaudi’s work fascinates you, let us suggest visiting the enormous Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, where you can relax amidst the typical animal statues. Also, we suggest taking a walk on Barrio Gotico, the bohemien side of the city with libraries and bars. Here you can pass an unusual evening in the shades of the Cathedral’s pinnacles. If you are looking for perfumes and colours, set your alarm clock early in the morning and visit Boqueira Market, a big iron building that hosts stands of every kind. Here, girls in a traditional outfit will sell you fish, meat, or sweets. Once you are outside, take a walk in the Rambla, the best known street by tourists. Here you can go shopping and occasionally stop by and look at one of the many street artists.

Must-see

  • An unusual evening at Barrio Gotico

  • A walk in the Rambla, all the way to Columbus’ statue

  • Montserrat

Driving near Barcelona – El Prat Airport

With a hire car Barcelona offers a wealth of trips and excursions. You can choose how much and where to go to without having to worry about public transportation and tight schedules. With your hire car, for instance, you can skirt Costa Brava, just south of Barcelona. Here you can visit renowned sea venues like Lloret de mar and Tossa de Mar. The former is a fabulous entertainment site; the latter has crystalline sea and wonderful beaches. North of Barcelona you can see the Pyrenees Mountains. Its peaks reach over 3000 meters and then guarantee outstanding landscapes, especially from places like Montserrat or Vall de Núria. Montserrat, one hour away by A2 route, is part of a mountain range that appears suddenly while you drive. It is heralded by its symbolic Benedictine Monastery. A cable way will bring you to the top where the paths lead to caves and hermitage sites. In Montserrat you can enjoy some of the best views in Spain.
