Top tips for renting a car in Costa Dorada

  • Costa Dorada car hire opens up a world of possibilities for your adventure. With a car, you can explore the region's stunning beaches, charming towns, and picturesque countryside at your own pace without relying on public transport schedules. Don't miss the opportunity to visit hidden gems, like the enchanting Siurana or the secluded coves of the Delta del Ebro Natural Park, which are best accessed by car.
  • It's possible to venture across borders, but you'll need to double-check with your car hire company to make sure they're okay with it. Keep in mind, though, that there are a few no-go borders. To make a smooth border crossing, arm yourself with the essentials: a valid passport, your driving licence, and the original vehicle registration document. When crossing from Costa Dorada to Andorra, it's important to note that you'll need to purchase a vignette, which is a road tax sticker.
  • The ideal type of vehicle to hire depends on the adventure you're seeking. To venture into the hilly regions nearby, like the stunning Serra de Montsant, an SUV or a 4-wheel drive would be an excellent choice. These rugged vehicles can handle rough terrain and elevate your experience amidst nature's wonders. On the other hand, if you plan to stick to the coastal areas or explore the flat landscapes of the region, a comfortable compact car or even a convertible might suit your needs perfectly.
  • In some areas of Costa Dorada, specifically in certain historic city centres or narrow streets, there may be restricted access or limited driving zones known as Zonas de Circulación Restringida (ZCR). These zones are intended to prioritise pedestrian areas and reduce traffic congestion. It's important to pay attention to signage and respect these restricted areas to avoid fines or penalties. Consider parking outside these zones and using alternative transportation methods.
  • Book your rental car in Costa Dorada at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Costa Dorada are around 108% more expensive than other car types, on average
