Car hires in Gerona: practical information

Where to rent a car in Gerona

Planning a trip to Gerona? Pick up a Gerona car hire from the airport when you arrive. It’s the best way to get around Spain’s Catalonia region and make day trips to surrounding places like Barcelona. From the airport, choose from Alamo Rent a Car, Atesa, Avis, Budget, Europecar, among others.

Gerona also has a selection of rental cars in the city centre but prices are bound to be cheaper at the airport when you disembark from your flights to Gerona. Be sure to compare deals between the two pick-up locations to find the best prices.

Driving in Gerona: parking and other tips

Gerona is a small Spanish city and traffic is generally good until you hit the main roads heading to Barcelona during the weekday rush hour. The city centre is easier to navigate on foot than in a car but driving in Gerona isn’t going to make you sweat during your Gerona holiday.

Overnight parking is best in either a car park or at your Gerona hotel. Some hotels may be able to offer a discounted rate at a nearby car park if they don’t have the capacity to accommodate guest vehicles on the premises. Best to ask before you book.
