KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Salou

  • When you get a car hire in Salou you will be gaining more flexibility for your onward journey. Choosing a Salou car hire provides more convenience that if you opted for an alternative mode of transport, such as a train or bus. This is because you can create your own schedule rather than relying on the bus or train timetable. For instance, if you wanted to drive to the nearby town of Cambrils it would take about 20 minutes. Whereas if you were completing the same journey via public transport it would take just over 1 hour.
  • Reus Airport (REU) has a range of car hire companies that you can pick from, such as SIXT, Europcar and Hertz, so it will be easy for you to find a vehicle of your choosing. For example, if you are getting a car hire in Salou with SIXT then this agency offers a Meet and Greet Service. You will meet the staff at the entrance to the public parking, which you can reach via the pedestrian crosswalk after the arrivals exit. Alternatively, if you’re hiring a car with Europcar you can get a free shuttle from outside Arrivals to the car hire office.
  • When you get a car hire in Salou you will find that the centre of the town is extremely busy in the summer months with tourists and beachgoers. They will be crossing the road at locations that aren’t official pedestrian crossings, so you should drive with caution. There are also lots of holidaymakers on skateboards, bicycles and roller skates on the roads, so be sure to check your mirrors before making a turn.
  • When you get your Salou car hire you will realise that the resort town can become extremely busy with traffic, especially during the summer. This can make it hard to drive in a new car in unfamiliar surroundings. The roads are particularly busy during rush hour, which tends to be between 7AM to 9AM and 7PM to 10PM. If possible, you should avoid driving your vehicle during the busiest times. An example of a road that gets particularly busy is C-31B, which goes around the periphery of the resort, so try and find an alternative route where you can.
  • Book your car hire in Salou at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
