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.

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.

Excellent service. Upgraded vehicle class when originally rented vehicle unavailable upon arrival. Took time to ensure we understood everything (traveling abroad) and when we experienced a tire blow-out a day or two into rental - completely replaced vehicle (we had full coverage).

The guys were helpful. At first I thought they were just trying to upsell me but I was wenting an electric vehicle and they were concerned I would have trouble finding charging stations based on where I was going. When I returned the car, Michael was very helpful and friendly. I would use them again if I ever needed to rent a car in Barcelona.
