KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Tarragona

  • When it comes to car hire in Tarragona there are many advantages of renting a car in this small but inviting city. Getting around the city, you can reach plenty of places of interest in a short space of time, and not have to rely on city bus schedules to get you to where you need to go. With a rental car you can choose when to leave and arrive in your own time, whether it’s in the centre or on the outskirts of the city. Check out The Ferreres Aqueduct, which is easy to get to by car, and around 5 km from Tarragona’s city beaches.
  • If you’re thinking of checking out the car hire in Tarragona, then renting your car at Reus Airport is a decent idea, as the deals from here are competitive and there are great range of cars that you can choose from. We recommend booking your car ahead of your arrival through KAYAK, that way you’ll come across the best deals, and paying online tends to give you the best price available. At Reus Airport, you can access the car rental desks on the ground floor of the Arrivals Terminal.
  • For the drivers who opt for Tarragona car hire, it’s important that you know the local driving laws as well as potential parking and vehicle restrictions in the city. There are three different coloured parking zones in Tarragona: blue, green, and orange. These zones contain very affordable parking spaces, with slightly differing rates. While public car parks are available throughout the city to access, with free parking areas being located on the outside areas of the city centre. Tarragona’s streets can be quite narrow in places and the speed limit is 30 km/h on urban roads, so be mindful when driving.
  • In Tarragona, typically it can get congested in the city centre during the morning and afternoon rush hours, so it’s worth keeping this in mind and trying to avoid driving at these times. The most affected roads in the city tend to be the Rambla Nova and the Rambla Vella streets, main streets that run through the centre of Tarragona. The N-240 motorway heading into the city can also get busy as it’s the main thoroughfare into the centre from the north.
  • Book your rental car in Tarragona at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Tarragona?

    When visiting Tarragona and looking to rent a car to get around during your holiday, we recommend renting a small compact vehicle that get you to the places you need to go easily and safely. Tarragona is well-known for its narrow streets and one-way systems that are much easier to manage when driving a smaller vehicle. Difficult turns, as well as fitting into tight parking spaces, will be much more straightforward in a compact car, especially when it can be a little difficult to find ample street parking space in the city centre.

  • What’s the speed limit in Tarragona?

    Once you’ve got hold of your vehicle, you’ll want to get going and cruise around Tarragona visiting all sorts of places but remember it’s important to keep to the local speed limits, driving safely and avoiding any potential problems. So, respect the speed limits of 30 km/h on urban roads with one-way in each direction, and 50 km/h for urban roads with two lanes going in the same direction.

  • Where are the best places to park in Tarragona?

    When it comes to car hire in Tarragona it’s well advised that once you’ve driven into the city, you already know where the best places to park are situated. The city is full of paid parking areas, as well as free parking areas outside of the centre, so it depends if you don’t mind paying when you’re visiting the more central areas. The green, blue, and orange parking zones for street parking have very cheap costs, ranging from 1.50 € a day to 4 € for 2 hours. You can also find plenty of car parks with the blue ‘P’ sign that charge only 4.50 € a day.

Only dislike is that they were trying all the time to sell us un upgrade. They probably didnt have the small car the we ve booked. At the end my husband chose to upgrade for $40 +. But i think that if they didn't have the car we booked for only one day... we didn't need much of what we booked. (a medium size car) they should have gave us the next car available for no extra cost. They souldnt have pushed that much for a luxury big car.

When I booked on line I was given a quote of 120 when I got there I ended up paying 207 as I had booked through the Uk I was charged more . Then when I went to drop the car back it was closed with no warning and I was met with a horrible employee who was t working but just happen to be in the office with his girlfriend ! He was rude and unhelpful and was cross with us for taking up his time .
