If you want to see everything Barcelona has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from National. Don't waste your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own ride, you can go anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to Spain more enjoyable with a National car rental.
With all there is to do in and around Barcelona, you'll want to explore more than your hotel room while on your stay. Whether you have to check out that well-reviewed chophouse across town or see some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own car to take in as much as possible while on your trip. Wherever you drive to in Barcelona, if you want to get the most out of your visit, having your vehicle is a must.
Founded by 24 independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National provides everything luxury to economy, allowing you to pick the best automobile for your next getaway.
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
National's minimum age to rent a car in Barcelona is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Barcelona. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Barcelona getaway can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National in Spain. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Barcelona definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Barcelona.
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different National. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Barcelona, having your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Spain, you can go wherever you like, without trying to signal for a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next family vacation, book your National Barcelona rent-a-car and visit all the must-see sights at your own pace. Reserve through CarRentals.com and speed along the road in Barcelona, Spain.
