Pros: Staff took time to explain electric car. Easy drop off.
8.4 Excellent15 Aug 2019
Pros: Great car and great value for the money although expected fuel economy to be better on a hybridCons: Waited for over an hour to pick up our car in Barcelona while it was driven from another terminal across the street. It would help if a Via-T device was offered with the rental.
4.4 Okay11 Jul 2019
Pros: the guy who helped us rent the car was very nice and friendly, however we didnt the car was not automatic. the car was dirty and we were not told how everything work, like radio and stuff like that. also they charges an extra fee we didnt know about and of courser the fee the bank chargesCons: more information
6.4 Good24 Jun 2019
Pros: They charged me extra day without notifyingCons: ELIMINATE FRAUD
5.2 Okay20 Mar 2019
Cons: Two speeding tickets, they charged $45 apiece to look them up on the computer and sending me a bill for the tickets which I had to pay for one and the Local gov unit never billed me.
2.0 Mediocre4 Mar 2019
Pros: The Staff was not friendly was late for 30 minutes because he went to eat & tried to Fool me to get an expensive car without insurance instead of Smart that was initially of agreement. The only good guy was the parking Guy. Initially I had booked a 4 doors car, then a smart and then a BMWCons: They Could not be late root and good inform me before I go there that there is no car as the one agreed! Worst experience ever!

Return okCons: Still not clear on damage check as not any inspection at time
2.0 Mediocre9 May 2018
How is this not illegal?Cons: I reserved a car for $109. In Barcelona airport at 5 am sixt was the only car rental available, and they knew it. They told me my only option was to pay 180 because they didn’t have any economy cars left. I had no option and felt kinda depressed at how deceptive the world has become. How a giant corporation can take surcharge advantage

Pros: Unbeatable staff attitude. Make you feel you are the privileged customers they were waiting for.Cons: Gas tank was almost empty.
2.0 Mediocre31 Aug 2020
Pros: Nothing.Cons: The staff was extremely unhelpful and rude. Since the first moment they didn’t want to me involved with us. Even cancelled our reservation. We had a dog and luggage and were stranded in Barcelona. Luckily Sixt came to the rescue and our trip was happily resumed. Never reserving a car ever again with them.
4.4 Okay5 Aug 2020
Pros: El coche nos sirvió muy bien para lo que necesitábamos.Cons: Me gustaría no haber tenido que esperar tanto para recoger el coche en la oficina de Estación de Sants. Hubiese sido mejor que no hubiesen cometido el error de cobrarme un día de mas.
9.6 Excellent30 Aug 2019
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. I am rarely treated this way when renting a car. It is usually a dreadful experience.Cons: Seats were a bit dirty - but that happens when you are close to a beach I guess.
2.0 Mediocre4 Sep 2018
Poor experiencePros: Got to the rental office at 9.30, but given the line-ups it took over an hour to get service. Finally ended up cancelling the rental. Though the staff apologised for delay and made the cancellation easy.
10.0 Excellent3 Sep 2018
Up front and friendlyPros: I've been burned recently by "budget" rental companies who have dozens of hidden fees, bringing some amazing advertised price to an astronomical amount. Enterprise charged me the stated price, offered options for my car, and didn't get super pushy about extras. Nice people, great service.
4.8 Okay28 Jul 2018
OkPros: Easy access in central BCNCons: Car not cleaned
9.2 Excellent13 Jul 2018
I would recomendPros: Friendly and accurate support. I receive a brand new car in my class(with 40km only)Cons: It was difficult to return a car as all roads around were closed due to reconstruction. I would expect customer service to tell it upfront and explicitly say that I have to drive in against traffic.
2.0 Mediocre22 Aug 2017
Cons: I've never booked a car via your site or enterprise in Barcelona. What are you talking about!?

Pros: yesCons: all was good
10.0 Excellent10 Oct 2019
Cons: Great experience renting Avis through Kayak. Cheaper than direct, as was the insurance they suggested. Pick up/drop off at Barcelona airport was far less stressful than I imagined.
10.0 Excellent29 Sep 2019
Pros: Very easy drop-off.Cons: No problems at all.
4.8 Okay20 Sep 2019
Cons: Pickup customer service was deplorable. 2 hours with 4 people in front of us with a reservation.
7.2 Good29 Aug 2019
Cons: We had to wait in line for 1.5 hours to get our car. Totally unacceptable and an amazingly inefficient system. The staff spent more time trying to upsell people on insurance, better cars etc instead of managing the crowd.
4.4 Okay22 Aug 2019
Pros: NothingCons: It took 2 hours to pickup the car. There was only 4 people ahead of us in line. Super slow process to check in and get the car. The car they gave me didn’t seem to be in the luxury class I ordered. I will not rent here again.
5.2 Okay10 Aug 2019
Cons: Long line, car wasn’t clear. I found invoices and medicine from previous customer.
6.4 Good2 Jul 2019
Cons: At drop off i returned the car after hours. The next day i tried calling the C/Pallars office in Barcelona 10 times to confirm that they closed the contract. They would not answer. i called the main number give times, they wouldn't answer. Wtf Avis?!?
10.0 Excellent29 Jun 2019
Pros: Drop off was super easy!Cons: Wayward signs in the airport to find Avis rental area could have been better. Took us a while to figure it out.
2.0 Mediocre23 Jun 2019
Cons: There was no car available even though i reserves ahead of time. Went to Sixt instead and they set me up with a car without reservation. So that says everything.

Pros: pick up ok, drop off okCons: Spent two days trying to process a simple reservation extension and change of drop off location. Got shuffled from US Headquarters to Spanish reservation desk to local offices. Many calls, many attempts, and they could not figure it out. Promised to call back, nothing. At the end we did not manage.

Very poorly makred return point.Pros: Once inside everything went wellCons: Whoever put up the sign for return should be given a reality check. there was a sign but it was on a one way street and was facing the wrong direction. It could only been seen by driving by the entrance and then looking backwards to see it, not something that many people would do. We drove around the block (not easy to do) three times and until my wife got out and circled the block did she see the sign and direct me in. Place the sign so that you can see it while driving by.

Bad service experiencePros: The car was actually ok.Cons: I had to wait more than 60 min- to get the car and consequently missed my golf appointment. They did not tell me where to drop the car off. I went to the office but they directed me to the garage where i picked ud the car. They could have told that in advance. Then i HATE, HATE, HATE renting cars online and purchasing some assurance at the same time, but then at the counter I am being told that I have zero insurance and do I want to take that risk? I could potentially go banckrupt if anything happens with the car. Do you know how the locals drive.?? That is the biggest problem when one company is responsible for the sale and another for delivering the car. It is not servie it is pestering the customer. Stop doing it. Try to be rental companies and not insurance companies and change the f.... busines model. It is sick. !!!

PCons: However the GPS phone Device we rent, the car charger didn't charge at all. Dead on the way to our destination. Coast so much pain.

Cons: Price did not include any insurance.
4.8 Okay28 Aug 2019
Pros: I loved the car I just didn’t like dealing with the customer service team. They made me upgrade twice because they first two cars they gave me were to small after they insured me that my cello would fit in the smaller cars.Cons: PLEASE DO NOT UP CHARGE Me when you’ve insured me that the car I rented was present and big enough for my cello and passengers.
4.8 Okay4 Jun 2019
Pros: easy drop offCons: very long wait at the airport office! more than an hour with not even one seat!!! so why do we pay extra for the airport pickup??? we were with a handicapped person and baby and like us some 30 people more. the manager didnt even tried to apologize!!!
9.6 Excellent14 Mar 2019
Pros: Great location, loved the option of dropping in another city.Cons: Picking up the car was a little slow due to some software issues.
2.0 Mediocre14 Sep 2018
Will not use the service againPros: Free cancelationCons: I booked Automatic transmission but received booking email from the rental company that the car is manual. Lucky for me I picked up the difference in time and cancelled the booking. Not happy - inconsistent booking details with what is offered.
2.0 Mediocre3 Jul 2018
Cons: Hi, In the end, we did not rent a car from the company because at no point during the ordering process it was not said that the company require two credit cards for the purpose of renting. I only have one card and it's enough for me.
2.0 Mediocre22 Jun 2018
Car with more than 50,000 miles (71,000 KMs). A disaster!Cons: Car had more than 50,000 miles on it. Poor car conditions.
8.8 Excellent12 Jun 2018
Would like to have second family member driver included in pricePros: Car was good size, ran wellCons: The time consuming a, annoying up-selling. They try to put fear into you when you pick up the car so youbuy extra everything. It's why the line-up always moves so slowly
2.0 Mediocre11 Jun 2018
Not as advertisedPros: They had our reservation.Cons: The car was not as advertised! We wanted a van that can fit 8 people with luggage and the car advertised in the filter for 8 people did not come through. As we tried to contact Kayak in Spain to help resolve this matter we were redirected to Budget constantly, but it was not Budget’s fault they don’t have those Vans available as Kayak advertised. This made our experience a huge mess. Next time we will book directly with the car rental company because then they can rectify the situation vs going through a third party who did not help us t all.
8.0 Excellent12 May 2018
Pros: Simple to rent car and return.Cons: Very expensive cover (minimal).

2.0 Mediocre23 Sep 2018
Well, we never got a car.Pros: Absolutely nothing.Cons: I made this reservation with Alamo so that I could easily transport myself and three other bridesmaids to our best friend’s wedding. The day before the reservation I called Alamo to adjust the pickup time from 9am to 3pm. The Alamo customer service representative told me she made a note in the reservation and that the car would be ready for us at 3. When we arrived, the car was to be picked up from an enterprise location. The enterprise representative Informed us that Alamo had never adjusted the reservation, they had canceled the car, and that there weren’t any others available. So, myself and the wedding party were stranded with no car. I was then on the phone with Alamo who was incredibly unhelpful, they kept repeating that there were no other cars available. Luckily we were able to find a car at Avis, which saved the day. I will not be renting a car through Alamo again.

Pros: Reserved a mercedes class a and got a misearable opel. Dont understand why. 15 min of argue didnt help. Talking to a brick wall is better. Bas treatment at dropp off point.

Pros: The car was nice and clean.Cons: The employee in Hertz, Sants was very rude. Unable to explain properly the conditions. She explained the coverage for the car I reserved but then she told me I am having another car, because they don't have the one I booked, so the coverage was triple price, etc.It took one hour to give me the keys.

He said he would take down those notes however we were still charged for refueling and for the gas.

2.0 Mediocre20 Jul 2017
Complete headacheCons: I planned to rent a car to take a day drip to an area near Barcelona. The e-mail I received said that I could pick up the car at the Barcelona airport. I went to the airport, but there was no Economy Rent a Car at the airport. Note that I had to pay for the airport shuttle to get to the airport. Airport information had never heard of Economy Rent a Car. I did a Google search for Economy Rent a Car, and found a location off site near the airport. I again paid to transportation to this area. After walking around for approx 45 minutes, it was clear that Economy Rent a Car did not exist. I eventually found a location that does business with Economy. They looked up the reservation, but it had not yet processed. So, I wouldn´t be able to get a car for another 45 minutes, at least. Since this was only going to be a day trip and I had already spent almost 2 hours searching for the car, I cancelled the reservation. The experience caused me to waste a day in Barcelona. I am hesitant to use your service again, since you work with unreliable companies.

Fiat 500 around CataloniaPros: Staff was super helpful and quick to get me out the door and check back in. Car was spotless and smelled great. This Fiat drove smooth and handled the mountain roads very well. I had a wonderful 3 days driving around Catalonia.Cons: 1. I was advised to pay for insurance online when booking so I did. When I showed up they said I had to buy insurance or they would have to put a hold on my creditcard for the Max allowed. I think only 1 of the insurances should have been needed but it seems like that unclear system is in place to maximize profits. 2. Finding this place was very difficult. My booking was through Economy Car Rental. Everyone told me there was no such thing at the Barcelona airport. I finally figured out (from a shuttle bus driver) that it was probably AutoClick and off airport grounds. This type of info could have been so dam simple to relay to me in an email with the confirmation booking. A little map maybe showing me where pickup was as well as the name change. If it was in my email I sure did not find it.
2.0 Mediocre24 Feb 2017
Complete mess!Pros: Nothing. Shuttle never came to pick me up and I never got car. Tried to call many times, both local Barcelona number foe Autoclick car rental which was supposed to fulfill reservation, and US customer service for Economy. No one answered in Spain!Cons: Everything. Never got picked up and never to rental car. A complete mess and failure!

Bad bad badlyPros: NothingCons: Hard to find the company- under other name that doesn't show on the voucher or web The insurance wasn't fit to Spain so we pay more. We got mini car and we ordered economy. After two hours we finally find this place it still took more two hours to drive from there

When to book a car hire in Barcelona

Top tips for hiring a car in Barcelona

  • Looking to rent a car on your trip to Barcelona? The quickest and best way to see the capital of Spain’s Catalonia region is by car, rather than taking the city‘s complicated underground Metro. Barcelona is well connected with a good road network and highway that leads directly into the city, so you can access all the main attractions. In the very heart of the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona Cathedral has ample parking nearby, as does the Olympic Stadium, where there is plenty of free parking on the streets. Plus Telefonica tower, Botanic gardens, Palau Sant Jordi, and Fundacio Joan Miro are all in the area.
  • Barcelona has one main airport which is about 15 km outside of the city center. If you’re landing in Barcelona-El Prat Airport, you’ll find that the best car hire companies are based onsite at Terminal 1 on the ground floor near baggage claim, and at Terminal 2 at the main exit hall and near the customs offices. There are also some car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services to off-site locations.
  • It’s important to remember that, while you’re enjoying the cityscape from the comfort of your hire car, city center driving is pretty intense. The changeable roadway system is packed with one-way streets and narrow alleys, so take care when navigating and maybe invest in renting a GPS to aid your journey.
  • When you visit Barcelona‘s city center, make sure to avoid driving during the busy rush hours of 8 am to 9:30 am and the evening rush hour between pm and 8:30 pm. At these times of day you must also watch out for the many tourists and pedestrians spilling onto the roads, as well as the bikes and motorbikes that take up part of the roads. You should particularly avoid driving down the narrow one-way roads that are either side of the central Ramblas Boulevard, the city’s busiest street.
