There are many car rental services in Barcelona. Renting a car in the city can be a great way to avoid the tourists trap and explore the less visited jewels the city has to offer. With this service, you can come and go as you like rather than waste your time in train stations and bus terminals. It is better to pre-book in renting a car online since this is the most economic and less hassle option.

Driving safety

barcelona-renting-a-car-2If it is your first time to explore Barcelona and drive in the city, you should have knowledge of the driving laws in the country. Australian and British drivers must get on the right side of the road. Also, you should take special care during national holidays. These are the times when the most road accidents happen in the city since many more people hit the roads.

Drunk diving and speeding

So watch your speed as over speeding can result in immediately payable fines. Here are the speed limits in Spain: 90-100 km/hour for open roads, 120 km/hour for motorways, and 50 km/hour for town roads.
