Barcelona Car Rental with SIXT

When you book a Barcelona car rental with SIXT, our kind and knowledgeable customer service agents can help you to find the perfect vehicle that suits all your needs. We offer a selection of different models to fit different budgets. If you rent a car in Barcelona, you can pick up your vehicle from one of our several locations in the city, including Barcelona Sants Train Station and Barcelona Airport. While a convertible is a great choice for those that want to travel in style and soak up some of the Spanish sunshine, an economy car is a convenient option if you plan on mainly driving throughout the city center.

During your stay in Barcelona, consider visiting the famous La Sagrada Familia, an unfinished basilica that was designed by Gaudi. You can also go to the popular Picasso Museum, where you will be able to see a large collection of this artist’s work. If you’re hoping to explore somewhere outside of the city, consider going on a day trip, such as to the town of Girona that is about a 1.5-hour drive away. 

Summer in Barcelona

Barcelona is known for being hot during the summer months, so use the morning and evening hours to explore some of the city’s many outdoor attractions, like the colorful Park Güell that contains many of Gaudi's sculptures. You can also pay a visit to Montjuïc, a park that is on a hill overlooking the city, providing beautiful views of the surrounding region.

The car we booked wasnt available but we were offered an upgrade. Not exactly sure (yet) if we have been charged for that. Car was in new condition and handover before and after quick and easy.

I don’t speak Spanish, but thankfully, the agent behind the counter spoke perfect English. He was patient, kind, and incredibly helpful. My flight had been moved without any notice to a much earlier time, and I was so overwhelmed that I cried right there at the Sixt counter. The agent spoke gently, which really helped calm me down, and took care of every single step of the rental so I could just breathe. I liked Sixt before, but I love it now. One hundred stars to my hero at the Barcelona airport!

Jennifer M.

Cannot say enough. There is no reason to rent with any other company, as Sixt really is the best.

Clare G.
