Are you landing at Reus Airport (REU) and would like to explore Reus and Costa Dorada with your own hired car? Then you make a very good decision if you book your hired car early at one of the three car hire agencies at the airport. Compare all hired car offers of the car hire companies at Reus Airport with Driveboo.com before you start your holiday or business trip, maybe even benefit from an early booking discount and, if desired, book useful accessories such as a navigation system or a child seat at the same time.

Book a hired car for the summer
Do you want to spend the summer in Reus in Spain? We think this is an excellent idea. Summers in Reus are hot and humid. However, that shouldn't stop you from exploring the city on your own. Hire a car and drive to the most popular sights in Reus. Stroll through the alleys, have lunch in one of the cafes and visit one of the museums on rainy days. There is always something to see in Reus in the summer. With a hired car you are always mobile and independent.
Unfortunately, so far only three car hire companies have set up shop at Reus Airport (REU) where you can hire a car, so it is of great advantage if you have reserved a hired car well in advance of your trip. You can hire a car at the airport from the following car hire companies:
Refuelling a hired car
If you plan to drive directly from Reus Airport with your own hired car, you will make a good decision if you choose a fully fueled hired car with a fair refuelling policy, since there is no gas station at the airport and therefore you do not have to go directly in search of a gas station. The nearest EsclatOil gas station is located at "Carrer Argentina, 13" and another Estació de Servei Cepsa Cim del Camp is located at the "Autovia del Mediterrani", near the entrance to the A7 in the direction of Tarragona.
Although Reus is often used by most tourists only as a springboard for a city trip in Barcelona or a beach stay in Tarragona, the city has much more to offer than you might think at first glance. Just take your hired car on a short tour and look into the Gaudi Center, enjoy a coffee on the Plaza del Mercadal, take a look at the Pere Mata Institute, a former mental hospital or let the ceiling paintings in the magnificent Bofarull Palace take you back in time. If you would like to make some side trips in the surrounding area with your hired car or even start a round trip, then you will find some kilometre and driving time information below, which may help you in your travel planning.
