As your plane descends into the Barcelona Airport you will be shown a sprawling metropolis which showcases the industriousness and aesthetic sensibilities of Mediterranean peoples. Barcelona is a busy and beautiful coastal city, one that should be thoroughly investigated during your stay.

The best way to see any city is to hire a car for the duration of your visit. The airport in Barcelona has five companies offering car hire service conveniently located within its terminals (B and C). While driving in a foreign land may present frustrations, it also creates a sense of control and a freedom to explore a give city and its surrounding terrain. Cars hired to serve your family throughout your stay can also save you money, over using taxi service. This is particularly true if family members have different tastes or ideas of what an ideal vacation would entail.

When you rely on public transit, or sightseeing tours, you are at the mercy of someone else’s schedule. Didn’t you take a vacation to get away from that? Throughout your life at work you are held to deadlines and time tables, your vacation should free you from that. A car hire service will give you the ability during your stay in Barcelona to be your own master, to answer to nothing other than the whim of the moment. You can see the exhibits and attractions that interest you and choose to linger for as long or short a period of time as you desire. Don’t allow your Barcelona experience to be the same as everyone else’s, use a hired car and customize you trip. Take ownership over your vacation.
