Barcelona International Airport Car Hire

The beautiful city of Barcelona is a haven of art and culture. From the Picasso Museum to the Parc Güell and the Sagrada Familia, there’s no shortage of attractions, cultural excitement, and historical highlights to be visited in the Catalan capital.

Barcelona-El Prat Airport, Spain’s second largest and second busiest airport, serves Barcelona as well as the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Sant Boi, and Viladecans. The airport may also be known as Josep Tarradellas Airport, after the former Catalonian President, or simply El Prat Airport. 

How do I book Barcelona Car Hire?

Once you know your flight details into Barcelona, it’s easy to get started searching for the best car hire options available.

Just create your search in the bar at the top of the page - input your travel dates and select ‘search’. hoppa will pull all the options from our network of transport providers and show you a selection of vehicle types to suit your needs.

It is recommended that you book your car hire online and in advance. While it is possible that you’ll be able to hire a car without pre-booking, your options will likely be limited and your rates will be much higher.

What things should I consider when selecting my Barcelona Car Hire?

Party size and amount of luggage are important factors in choosing a rental vehicle. If you’re travelling alone with few bags, you can opt for a smaller vehicle, but travelling with your entire family or other large group, and all of their things, you’ll need a bigger one.

Also important to consider is the fuel policy. A ‘full to full’ policy is most common, meaning that you receive the car with a full tank and are expected to return it with a full tank. However, other policies may be available and you will need to consider which best suits your needs.

Finally, airport pickup and drop-off is very convenient, but it isn’t cheap. Take your collection and return points into consideration, and decide whether the cash or the convenience takes top priority for you.
