Barcelona is one of the most popular car rental locations in Spain. You may find that one of the most convenient places to pick up a rental vehicle is car hire Barcelona Airport, airport code BCN.

Even in the city, car hire is advisable as it’s often a long walk between the sights. You could use the public transport system but it’s often overcrowded and slow.
