An important detail! Please note that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on the car rental point.

Be careful on the road. Fines in Spain are quite high.

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to Barcelona, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Barcelona. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Toll roads in Spain

There are several toll roads in Barcelona. It is convenient and inexpensive to use them. Pay by cash or card.

To ensure your rental is the most comfortable, we always recommend a full insurance policy. You may do this either on our website or directly at the rental company office.

Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises.  Example:

Speed limitations

All the rumours that travelling across Barcelona by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.

What documents will be required for car receipt?

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE NOTE

At the rental company office, you may be required to provide an international driving licence.

Prices for petrol/diesel in Barcelona

Petrol stations are located on the outskirts of Barcelona, so it is better not to go to the city centre with the empty tank. You are allowed to transport fuel in a canister in the city, so you may, for your own calmness, buy and fill a 10-litre container with the right kind of petrol or diesel.
Approximate prices for fuel:


Cancellation and modification of order

You may book a car in advance; and if your plans change, you will be free to cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the rental time. This is the standard contract condition.

In the case of cancellation within the next 24 hours, you will be charged a fee of 50 EUR.

Compensation for cancellation on the day of booking is not provided; in this case, you will be charged the full amount for the entire rental time.

To cancel the order, use the special form on the website.


Age restrictions for car rental in Barcelona

If you are a driver aged 25 to 65, consider yourself lucky. As a rule, it is this renter's age that establishes the strongest trust at a provider's office and is will result in your being charged at basic rates. Drivers under 25 and over 65 are often forced to pay an extra charge, whether there is an increasing factor and to what extent, you may find out on our website in the Age Restrictions section.

Extra charge for car return in other city

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

How to get an additional discount in Barcelona

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Available payment options

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.

Deposit and credit card information

If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

May I visit other countries in a rented car?

Yes, it is possible, but not in all cases. You may find border crossing conditions in the Border Crossing section of the booking terms. To do this, click on the "price details" button.

Do I have to pay additional local fees?

When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.

However, you may choose options that are not included in the basic rental package, for example, a child seat or additional ski equipment storage. You will find out their price in advance and will be able to pay on website, at the rental company office.

This is the best resource for search cars to rent worldwide because it gives big discounts and this is great!

For a long time I searched for the best car aggregator, which would give maximum number of options only from reliable providers. I liked this site the most. Many times I found offers that weren't shown by other resources. Kudos!
