I was turned away at pickup because I didn’t have the International Driver’s License for a US driver’s license. I have never needed this from other rental agencies. It should be up to the driver to take the risk of not having the IDL. Ended up getting a much nicer car for a similar price from Europcar…

I disclosed my age when booking the car via Kayak and they let me check out with the young drivers charge. When I went to pick up the car I was told I was too young. Getting my money back was a huge pain (both Kayak and Hertz were telling me the other party was responsible for the refund process). I ended up renting a car from another company and had a much better experience plus it was the same price for a nicer car.

Mercedes van Rental - Barcelona Apr 7-21That the van had seats and could drive.Everything else. Poorly maintained vehicle. Horrible brakes. Almost no tread on the tires so we ended up sliding around even when there was just a little bit of moisture on the road. It's a diesel so supposedly it requires AdBlue which I've never heard of and then had to refill. Low oil which I didn't bother to refill. Scratches and dents all over the vehicle.. Very poor car. I'm not sure what Mercedes was thinking when they created this vehicle and why Budget doesn't do more to take care of their vehicles.

We rented a car online that said it would seat seven and hold four bags. The car was so small that it could only hold four passengers and four bags. When we told the car rental place that this was not what we rented, they told us it would cost us $5,000 to get a bigger car. As a result, I had to send two of my kids on a bus to the hotel and back to the airport because they couldn't fit in the car.

The car had some minor damages on the doors. It did not affect the experience but it is always better to drive a car that is not damaged and that looks new
2.0 Mediocre9 Feb 2022
At first I didn’t get the car I booked but a different model, which in my opinion it’s a cheaper model, moreover the lady at the pickup desk was trying to convince me that this model is better than the one I booked and offered me other cars similar to the one I booked but with an extra charge which for sure was unacceptable for me, I was in rush so I had to accept what I got. I paid extra to drop off the car at an another place than the pickup location but unfortunately there were no one to collect the car from us at the drop off location so I had to call the office, and after waiting more than 10 minutes so they will answer I was given other number which didn’t answer after trying for 10 min, at the end I found a local number for Sixt which provided me to park the car about 500 meters from the airport(the chosen drop off location by me) and throw the key to a box, because there office at this location is temporary closed, a waste of time about 50min which almost led us to loose our flight, the lady at the pickup point didn’t gave me these instructions for the drop off process. Therefore I’m not satisfied with the service and for sure I’m going to recommend a refund.

Drop-off location in San Sebastian is in an underground car-park. We saw no signage until we had found and entered the car-park. Inside the car-park, signage is poor. The only realistic option for the drop-off is via a key-drop box. This was not made clear to me at any time prior to our arrival. Perhaps there was someone in the above-ground office but I do not know. The car itself was flawless and perfect for our needs.

At the check-in I was informed that as the rental was done via a USA based agency and that I was using an EU based credit card and drivers licence , that I was Absolutely OBLIGED to take their full insurance... otherwise the rental would not be honored. This despite I already have a good policy with both my own car and via my gold credit card. The insurance was more than the rental. I feel lied to by Kayak , Europcar, and whatever middle-man you sub-contracted via.

I have had better experiencesFriendliness of staff.There are two terminals at BCN and I had reserved at #1, but picked up at #2. They told me they didn't have any small cars like I wanted. I could have gone back to terminal #1 and gotten the original car, buty ended up with a much larger and more expensive car. They should coordinate between the two terminals. They didn't inspect the exterior of the car when I picked up, but did when i returned it. This could have been a problem though it wasn't.

Hired a 4x4, got a 2wd. Absolutely shocked.I specifically hired a 4x4 as I was heading to the mountains to ski. I received a jeep Suv that appears to be a 4x4, but was in fact only 2wd. It was also on cheap aftermarket tyres. The vehicle was utterly incapable and could not even make it up an icy road to the accommodation, and later got stuck in a hotel car park. The pick up was delayed by an hour while i waited around too. I am awaiting a compete refund for this booking.Being given a 2wd when I specifically ordered a 4x4

Pick up and drop off were both efficient and the staff friendly. The car, however, was almost out of gas and did not drive well. It surged while driving non the highway and also the engine would randomly surge while stopped at a traffic light. It was so bad that I debated whether to trade in the car for another once I reached my destination. Would not recommend their cars based on the quality of the vehicle and being provided a car in which I had to fill the gas tank in before I could begin my journey.

Worst rent a car everOn the spot, when added insurance price was 2.2x more than initially communicated Car given was not the one reserved,but Hyundai that had some strange features that caused flat battery and left us without the car for half a day ( of course when most needed) Emergency service from Hertz that was the actual provider behind the Dollar, acted very slowly and fairly unprofessionally. End result was waiting for 3 hours in the garage for them to come with cables and start the engine. At that time they gave us instructions that should be initially communicated.

One thing OK doesn’t mention is how they manipulate you into purchasing their insurance… A normal rental car company puts a €200-£300 hold on your credit card for incidentals. OK puts a €1500 hold UNLESS you purchase €49.95 insurance (which doesn’t cover much) then the hold drops back down to €100. I’ve rented 100’s of cars and have never heard of something like this and was really disgusted with the policy.

Upon Arriving at airport we waited almost an hour for shuttle to return. Another couple had been waiting long before us, and they decided to catch a cab. We were about to do the same, but shuttle showed up. Staff was great, helpful and the vehicle was new, so super happy about that. Upon dropping off vehicle, the staff member insisted had had gone way over on the mileage, and how big of a deal it was going to be: Upon the realization he was wrong, by almost 700km, he was apologetic. Was still frustrating. Had a long wait for shuttle back to airport as well. Overall though, good experience.

Goldcar runs a scam with KayakPickup was in Barcelona Airport. The price per day that you book via Kayak does not include a bonus fee (for me it was an airport tax + 25 euros = 28 euros) for rentals. Additionally, I returned and a difficult-to-see dent in the side of the car was blamed on me. It was so small and difficult to see that I cannot say whether it was there when I rented the car. I am now in legal proceedings with them over the issue.

Complete headacheI planned to rent a car to take a day drip to an area near Barcelona. The e-mail I received said that I could pick up the car at the Barcelona airport. I went to the airport, but there was no Economy Rent a Car at the airport. Note that I had to pay for the airport shuttle to get to the airport. Airport information had never heard of Economy Rent a Car. I did a Google search for Economy Rent a Car, and found a location off site near the airport. I again paid to transportation to this area. After walking around for approx 45 minutes, it was clear that Economy Rent a Car did not exist. I eventually found a location that does business with Economy. They looked up the reservation, but it had not yet processed. So, I wouldn´t be able to get a car for another 45 minutes, at least. Since this was only going to be a day trip and I had already spent almost 2 hours searching for the car, I cancelled the reservation. The experience caused me to waste a day in Barcelona. I am hesitant to use your service again, since you work with unreliable companies.

Fiat 500 around CataloniaStaff was super helpful and quick to get me out the door and check back in. Car was spotless and smelled great. This Fiat drove smooth and handled the mountain roads very well. I had a wonderful 3 days driving around Catalonia.1. I was advised to pay for insurance online when booking so I did. When I showed up they said I had to buy insurance or they would have to put a hold on my creditcard for the Max allowed. I think only 1 of the insurances should have been needed but it seems like that unclear system is in place to maximize profits. 2. Finding this place was very difficult. My booking was through Economy Car Rental. Everyone told me there was no such thing at the Barcelona airport. I finally figured out (from a shuttle bus driver) that it was probably AutoClick and off airport grounds. This type of info could have been so dam simple to relay to me in an email with the confirmation booking. A little map maybe showing me where pickup was as well as the name change. If it was in my email I sure did not find it.

Their was a sign but no one there to help. Than we were told by OK car rental that no one would be there and no one new what to expect... waited another 1/2 hr and no one showed up. I called the US main office and was told that someone should be there to take care of us. No one showed up so I rented car with OK car rental at the Barcelona airport as we had deadlines where we needed to go..... HORRIBLE experience with ACE at the offsite car rental at the BCN El Prat de Llobregat international airport...

no intl licenseRental form never said I needed an Int'l license. Was refused rental in Barcelona. No problems renting elsewhere in Europe with stateside license.

booked With ACE all insurance included. Upon Arrival Goldcar Barcelona, tells us, that they do not accept the terms and conditions negotiated by ACE and that ACE has no cars and that we have to accept their conditions otherwise there is no car. I have had an exchange with priceline on this issue - to no avail. It is for me not acceptable that I'm not aware that the subcontractor of ACE (in this case Goldcar) does not accept the conditions of ACE. Goldcar has been condemned for this business practice in Italy, but not yet in Spain. ACE should stop working with Goldcar or make it clearer to the customer, that the contract via internet will not be honoured upon arrival and that more costs are to be expected.

Top tips for renting a car at Barcelona-El Prat Airport

  • Barcelona-El Prat Airport car hire is a good idea for those travellers who are not staying directly in the city centre, as some surrounding areas are not serviced by the metro system. Or for travellers looking to explore the country at your own pace, then booking car hire at Barcelona-El Prat Airport should be your first activity on arrival.
  • Car rental is much cheaper in Spain than in many other parts of the world, which is great news for us travellers. Keep in mind though to always be sure to read all the terms and conditions of your booking before you confirm to avoid any hidden costs.
  • Remember to confirm your pickup and drop-off times with the rental company on completion of your booking. And be sure to allow yourself at least an hour and 30min from the time you land to your pickup time. Most people underestimate how long it takes to get from your flight through passport control, collect your luggage and arrive at the car rental desk. When you are dropping your car off allow yourself at least two hours before your drop-off time; driving in a new area can be confusing and you might get lost, or not be familiar with the amount of traffic for that time. Late drop-off penalties are often charged for car hire at Barcelona-El Prat Airport so leave yourself plenty of extra time for anything that might come up.
  • When collecting your vehicle at Barcelona-El Prat Airport you must have valid original proof of identification, your driver’s licence and a credit card for your security deposit. Be sure to go through the basic insurance coverage and ask any questions you are unsure of to be confident you know what you are covered for and what you are not. If you are unhappy with your coverage, the representative will be able to offer you a breakdown of what additional coverage is available, however, it is not a fun activity to be doing after a long flight. We recommend having a look at the KAYAK website beforehand and making a pre-booking which will also allow you to custom your coverage before arrival.
