KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tarragona

  • There are several advantages of renting cheap car rentals in Tarragona. First, they offer visitors greater flexibility to explore the region. With Tarragona car rentals, you have the freedom to visit places off the beaten path, avoid overcrowded tourist areas, and customize your itinerary as you please. You can visit sites that are located outside the city with more ease. For example, the Roman Aqueduct, which is 10 km (6.2 miles) outside the city center, is more accessible by car. Additionally, the scenic Priorat wine country is only an hour's drive away.
  • Reus Airport (REU) is only six miles from Tarragona. The rental-car offices at Reus Airport are located near the airport's main entrance, which is only a short walk from the terminal building. Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN) is about 54 miles from Tarragona. The rental-car offices at BCN are located in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Some major rental companies have their own shuttle buses that transport people between the airport and their sites. Lleida-Alguaire Airport (ILD) is about 85 miles from Tarragona. The rental-car offices at ILD are located inside the terminal building, to the left of the entrance.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Tarragona, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. Drivers in Tarragona tend to be fairly relaxed and patient on the roads; however, it’s always best to drive defensively and be aware of your surroundings. It is not uncommon to see people jaywalking, so drivers should always stay alert and look out for pedestrians crossing the road unexpectedly. Bicycles are a common sight on the road, so drivers should always be mindful of bikers when changing lanes or making turns.
  • Rush hour in Tarragona is typically from 8 am to 10 am and from 5 pm to 7 pm. During these times, traffic can be heavy, and some of the main roads that are most affected include N-240, N-340, and the AP-7 motorway. There will likely be more tourists and traffic on the road in the summer months, especially on coastal roads. It’s also important to note that Tarragona receives a lot of rainfall in the fall and winter, which can make driving cheap car rentals in Tarragona more challenging. Drivers should take care on the roads during periods of heavy rain, especially in flooded areas.

  • Where are the best places to park in Tarragona?

    There are numerous places to park Tarragona car rentals, some free and others paid. We recommend that you plan to pay for parking in some parts of the city, especially in the downtown area. The cost of paid parking varies depending on the location and parking duration. On-street parking in the city center will cost around €1.50-2.00 ($1.70-$2.80) per hour, while parking in a parking garage might cost €1.50-3.50 ($1.70-$4.00) an hour.

These parking lots are well lit, they’re covered to protect you from the elements, and they have 24-hour security.

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 .
