You need always to check with the Rent a Car agency beforehand to make sure you have the right IDs for driving in Spain. For Americans, agencies usually only require a valid passport (that means within the six month travel period allotted to Americans for travel in Europe) and a driver’s license. For Europeans your Drivers licence should be ok.

Be sure to Read the small print and sign off on the dents and scratches on the car you rent. Mark the faults, dents or scrarches beforehand on piece of paper that includes a small illustration of a car and show to the office before leaving the Barcelona Airport office.
Always lock your doors, and do not leave your suitcase, purse, camera bag, or anything else of value in plain sight in your parked rental car. If you are unsure about what the rules are or where you can park in Barcelona, the best bet is to put your ride in a garage and pay a bit more.
Tip for Americans: Most rental cars in Spain (and throughout Europe) are equipped with manual transmission, and most Spaniards know how to drive a stick shift car. Automatic cars are the exception, not the rule, and you may have to pay hundreds of euros more to rent one.
Don’t forget to fill the vehicle up (and with the right fuel!). Gas is self-service in Spain. You pay inside or at the pump with either a card or Euros.
The Barcelona El Prat Airport is located to the southwest of the Ciudad Condal (Barcelona), 6 meters above sea level, and between the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans and Sant Boi.
It is the second largest international airport in Spain, after the International Airport of Madrid-Barajas and is the first in Catalonia and the Mediterranean coast, being the tenth with the highest passenger traffic in Europe, according to data from the year 2015.
The Barcelona El Prat airport is represented by the IATA codes : BCN and ICAO: LEBL .
The airport’s infrastructures have three take-off and landing zones, thus obtaining 3 runways in service, two in parallel called 07L / 25R and 07R / 25L (inaugurated in 2004), and a crusade, runway 02/20.
It has two passenger terminals, terminal T1 and terminal T2. Recent modifications in the structure of the Barcelona airport have caused what were previously 3 different terminals: terminal A, terminal B and terminal C, are now united in one, terminal T2.
The route of the so-called Madrid-Barcelona corridor, or airlift, continues to be the route from Spain with the highest passenger traffic, even after the launch in February 2008 of the high-speed AVE train service.
