Renting a Car in Barcelona

Written by Laura

Many times, people end up needing a car for various responsibilities, such as driving to work, but many don’t want to end up paying for the maintenance it takes to have a car. Insurance, repairs and replacement of parts are just some of the costs to consider. However, a rental car saves you all these costs, and more and more people are participating in the rental car boom and enjoying using a car without the weight of ownership costs. Today in this article from ShBarcelona, we will be talking about rental cars in Barcelona, a way to use a car with less stress.

There are many advantages to renting a car that can be beneficial to people’s different situations and needs. The process of renting vehicles is deeply rooted between companies and individual owners, since you can rent cars for employees or rent certain types of vans and trucks for professional performance. In addition, renting has fiscal advantages for these collectives, allowing them a large discount off the rental price, making renting a very attractive option. On the other hand, many individuals are also starting to value this alternative manner of using a car.

Having a rental car also means that you don’t have to worry about repairs, inspections and maintenance of the vehicle during the rental period. This is a great advantage, as it means a lot of saved money, especially with high range or luxury cars that you may rent. In addition, the renter is also relieved of all the insurance and fees related to the vehicle’s maintenance, another great economic plus that saves you money once you are charged. Lastly, we want to highlight how renting a car allows you to change your car model more frequently, and gives you access to more efficient and modern models, something many people are beginning to value more than the advantage of having their own car.

In Barcelona there are various car rental companies, and the following are options we want to especially highlight. Sixt is a car rental company that offers different types of rentals and has branches all throughout the state, with the Barcelona branch located at Rambla Cataluña 74. On the website of Lease Plan, a company specializing in car rentals in Spain and other countries, you can calculate the cost of renting that fits your needs and budget and and view the car options that meet your qualifications. It can be interesting to add up these costs of renting and compare them with the costs of having and maintaining your own car, and then seeing which one will realistically work better for you. Lastly, there is Renting de Coches, a website that allows you to choose the make and model that you prefer and apply for a rental online from the comfort of your home. If you prefer, you can also buy a car on their website, either second-hand or brand new with 0 km logged, or sell your own car.

Do you have a rental car? How do you compare it to owning a vehicle of your own?
