Traffic Information back to top

Having your own car rental in Barcelona will allow you the freedom to explore the Catalonian capital's rich urban center as well as the chance to take various day trips. Driving in Barcelona may take a little getting used to, as many automobiles share the road with motorbikes and scooters. We recommend becoming familiar with your surroundings or adding GPS when you pick up your car rental in Barcelona to ensure a comfortable driving experience.

The Autopista, or motorways, in Catalonia are some of the most well-maintained roads in Europe. In front of a numbered road sign there will be either an "A" or "E". In many cases, "A" roads are toll roads, also known as Peaje. It is important to keep some cash on you in case you come across one of these toll roads. In the Barcelona, there are plenty of parking garages where you can park your rental vehicle. There are also various parking zones, which are convenient for short-term use.

Sixt Tips back to top

Barcelona is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, so there are countless things to see and do. When you rent a car in Barcelona you can explore everywhere from the city center to the charming towns that lay outside of the urban areas. Starting in the Barri Gòtic, or Gothic Quarter, located in the old city center, is a great way to catch a glimpse of the Catalonian capital. Dating back to Roman and Medieval times, many of the buildings in this area are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is here where you will find some of the works of Antoni Gaudí, Spain's most famous architect. Park Guell, is a must as it is home to Gaudi's most famous pieces aside from Sagrada Familia and a gem of Barcelona. Located on top of Carmel Hill, Park Guell is a collection of Gaudi's sculptures and buildings, all of which complement the natural beauty of the surrounding gardens. In addition to exploring the old town, Barcelona is also famous for having some of the best city beaches in the world and diverse neighborhoods like Gracia and El Raval.
