    Where to pick up my car hire at Gerona Train Station

    Being not far from the historical centre of Gerona, is one of the reasons why many decide to rent a car at Gerona Train Station as opposed to the local airport. As a popular choice, customers will be able to find many of the most popular car rental suppliers around. From Hertz to dollar, Europcar and many more, booking with any of these suppliers is peace-of-mind and very competitive. Car rental desks can either be found in the railway terminal building or just outside the railway station, for example, at Calle de Barcelona.

    Make sure you have your identification, driving licence – with an International Driving Licence if required – car rental voucher and a credit card. The credit card must be in the main driver’s name and contain enough funds for a deposit to be held on it. Make sure you fully inspect the car, noting anything of concern on the pick-up slip, and taking video and photographic evidence. Upon returning the car, make sure it is reinspected by a member of staff and signed off as okay. Only then will your deposit be released back onto your credit card. This may take some time to process and show on your bank statement. Some suppliers may require more than one credit card. Deposit amount is noted on our voucher’s terms and conditions.
