Important information about Barcelona car hire

We recommend looking very carefully at the border crossing policy of the Barcelona car hire company you are booking your vehicle through because the boarding crossing authorisation of your hire vehicle is determined by the car type; certain models of vehicles are able to cross into certain areas, while others are not. The different countries are split into three zones, and only particular car brands are acceptable in the particular zones. If you cross a border in a brand of car that is not authorised for that zone, you might be in discord with your insurance coverage policy, making it invalid.

You are able to use all internationally recognised debit or credit cards when booking car hire in Barcelona for many types of hire cars, especially for cheap car rentals in Barcelona. These brands of internationally recognised cards include Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, Diners Club or JCB cards. Prepaid cards or cash payments are not recognised as acceptable methods of payment, even for cheap car hire in Barcelona. The funds to cover the total costs of the security deposit plus the entire hire car reservation (including any added extras, such as a GPS device or young driver charge) must be available on the card you use to secure your hire car booking. The driver of the car must be present when collecting the car and must be able to prove their identity with their passport, which must match the name on the credit card produced for payment.

While driving in your car hire in Barcelona, you must be aware of the pedestrian zones allocated all around the city; in these areas, the speed limit is 30 km/h to ensure the safety of pedestrians. Pedestrians always have the right of way on the streets of Barcelona, and you will be adhering to right-hand driving rules. In the city, the speed limit is generally 50 km/h; outside the city and on motorways, the speed limit varies between 90 km/h and 120 km/h. Speed limits are indicated by the road signs, so keep an eye out for these. Eating or the use of mobile phones while operating your hire car is prohibited, and there’s very strict drinking and driving laws. The legal alcohol limit when operating a vehicle is 0.05%, and traffic officers are entitled to breathalyse any persons suspected of consuming alcohol and attempting to drive. All children under the age of 12 years old are not allowed to be seated in the front seat of the car, and if your child is under 135 cm tall, they need to be strapped into a child seat.

If you are an international driver, you will need to be 18 years or older to book car hire in Barcelona. A young driver charge will apply to drivers between the ages of 18 and 25 years. This age restriction can also change depending on the car type. Regardless of your age, all international drivers need to have held a valid driver’s licence for at least one year and be able to produce an authorised copy of the document when receiving the car hire vehicle. Driver’s licences that are printed in non-Roman alphabets, such as Japanese, Arabic or Cyrillic, will need to be accompanied by an international driver’s permit, as well as an authorised English translation of the document, issued by the official government department that deals with roads and traffic issues in your homeland.
