I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the service I received during my recent car rental attempt at Barcelona Airport. Despite having a confirmed reservation and providing all required details, including my credit card from Kosovo, I was informed upon arrival that Budget does not accept credit cards from my region. This refusal caused significant inconvenience and additional expenses, as I had to secure a rental from another company, GoldCar, at four times the original cost. Furthermore, at no point during the reservation process was I informed of this regional restriction, which I find unacceptable.Reviewed 21 May 2024

We booked an electric car and the cable provided in the car didn't work at any of the charging stations, so we were the whole time more concerned about running out of electricity than enjoying the trip.Reviewed 29 Apr. 2024

1. there are not much time to drive in Barcelona in 3days. public transportation looks better for traveler. 2. inferior surface of front bumper scar which was charged 180 euros for me There is an unfair aspect of charging for scratches on the lower part of the vehicle. When the vehicle was first delivered, a 360-degree video was taken, but the lower structure of the vehicle bumper was not taken. When I was charged for the lower scratch of the front bumper, I felt a lot of unfairness.Reviewed 22 Feb. 2024

Top tips for renting a car from Budget in Barcelona

  • Among the cars available to you when you book Budget car rentals in Barcelona are compact vehicles, SUVs, and vans. Barcelona, Spain’s second-largest city, is prone to slow-moving traffic at several times over the course of the day. Thus, rent a compact car if you're planning to drive in the city center to make maneuvering through congestion easier. On the other hand, you may consider reserving an SUV if you need more space to keep your baggage or have youngsters accompanying you on the trip. Budget also provides vans with sufficient capacity for nine people if you're traveling as a group.
  • Renting a car from Budget car rentals in Barcelona places you on the path to fostering sustainable travel. The company has made commendable steps towards modernizing its stock by introducing thousands of electric and hybrid vehicles to its fleet. Nearly half of Budget’s cars have a U.S. EPA SmartWay certification, causing the firm to receive several rewards, including the Certificate Sustainable Tourism (CST) and C-Neutral Certificate awarded by FONAFIFO. Thus, when you hire a car with Budget, you will enjoy your trip while caring for the environment.

Further, Budget partners with numerous companies, including airlines, credit card providers, and hotels, so Fastbreak members can earn redeemable points.
