Booking a cheap car rental in Barcelona is not always easy. Comparing hire car prices is not always as transparent as it could be, specially because the rates offered by travel websites or brokers who offer cheap car hire in Spain do not always include additional charges like insurance cover, road assistance, a full tank of petrol, additional drivers or services like night handling at the airport or child seats.
People visiting Barcelona for a city break hardly ever book a rent a car, because the public transport in the city is excellent and a rental vehicle is not necessary to visit the Sagrada, the medieval Gothic buildings of the Gothic Quarter or the Ramblas in the old city centre. But if your final holiday destination is a popular seaside resort on the Costa Brava like Rosas, Lloret de Mar or Calella huge savings on transportation expenses can be achieved. There for it is worth wile to compare car hire prices in Barcelona against the costs of a taxi ride to your hotel or holiday apartment.
Other recommended places to visit in Catalunya are the medieval town of Tossa de Mar, the monastery of Montserrat, the nearby Pyrennees, or Girona with the second most important airport of Catalunya.
