Tarragona Airport Guide

Car Hire

Located in northeast Spain, Reus Airport is the gateway into the coastal region of Spain. The airport is less than two miles from the city centre of Reus and just under five miles from the city of Tarragona. Many travellers use this airport as an alternative to Barcelona Airport, which is about 30 miles north along the coast. Car hire in Reus Airport is a convenient and easy option. Otherwise, visitors can use buses or taxis to get to Reus or Tarragona.

Who to Book With
Self-driving to explore the coastal areas of Spain is popular. Travellers can choose from leading international suppliers, such as Avis, Europcar, Goldcar Rental and Hertz. Car rental desks are conveniently located in the Arrivals area. Passengers should note that some of the operators are not open during the low winter season.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- UK drivers will need both parts of their driver’s licence
- Non-UK drivers will need either an EU licence or an International Driving Permit
- Passport or other photo ID
- A valid credit card, issued to the driver of the vehicle
- Booking number or confirmation

For more info read our FAQ's.

Drivers in Spain need to carry these documents: vehicle registration (or car hire documents), insurance papers and driver’s licence. All occupants must wear a seatbelt. Children under the age of 12 cannot sit in the front seat and children under three must use a child seat. All vehicles must have two warning triangles as well as reflective vests – make sure your hire car has these items in the boot. Petrol stations on motorways and in the cities are often open 24 hours, but many in rural areas close at night and during lunch time hours (12:00 to 15:00).

See our guide to Spain for more information on driving here.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
