Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Barcelona Hertz rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my vehicle in Barcelona?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Barcelona?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Barcelona is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Hertz's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Barcelona?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Barcelona. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Barcelona getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Spain?
In Spain you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Barcelona. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Barcelona definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Barcelona.
Does Barcelona Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Hertz. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
