Rent a Car and Tour Barcelona in Fashion

Barcelona airport is close to the city of Barcelona, just 14 km away. The airport is located at a town known as El Prat del Llobregat. The airport is the second largest after the one in Madrid referred to as Aeropuerto de Barajas by the natives.

Advantages of touring Barcelona by car

There are a total of four companies that give travelers cheap car hire services, hence the car rental issue should not give you headaches. Perhaps car hire is the best travel option because;

  • With your own car, you will be at liberty to drive to the coast or inland to the mountains. There are public means of transport that can take you there obviously, but you are going to miss on the chance of stopping by the way and have an experience in the vineyards all along the way.
  • You plan your own schedule. No one will be hurrying you as you tour the best destinations in Barcelona.
  • It’s cheaper to rent a car because the rates remain constant compared to taxis that charge extra fees for any baggage you carry, or the time of the day. For instance, you pay extra fees at night.

There are restrictions when it comes to car rental. For instance, you must be 21 years or older to rent a car, and your license should be at least a year old. Seat belts along with child seats for young children are mandatory. Speed limits are 31mph/50kph in the city, 55mph/90kph on open roads and 74mph/120kph on highways.

Barcelona tourist destinations


Barcelona boasts of 4.2 km of sandy beaches just 10 minutes from the city. There are four main beach areas, and you can bask at any at your own convenience.

Barceloneta beach is the first of the four Barcelona beaches and tends to get quite busy in summer. This is because the weather is always ideal for different activities such as swimming, kite surfing and wind surfing. The other beaches include Icária beach, Mar Bella Beach,Sitges Beach. Sitges beach is outside the city of Barcelona, and you will be required to use a train. It’s a journey of about 30 minutes from Sants train station. To avoid the inconvenience of having to catch a train, consider hiring a car from a cheap car hire company.

Apart from beaches, there are countless other tourist destinations in Barcelona for instance;

Parc Güell

This is one of the most unique parks in the world. It has fanciful pavilions and an outstanding main staircase that were designed by Antoni Gaudi.
