To rent a vehicle in Spain through Auto Europe you are required to be at least 21 year old and have your drivers’ license for a minimum of 1 year. When renting a vehicle in Spain it is also recommended to have an international driver's license. Drivers who are 21-24 years old may be required to pay a young driver surcharge of $11 CAD up to $21 CAD per day depending on the rental supplier.
Like many European countries, travelers from the United States and Canada can pickup a rental car in Spain and drive off the lot with nothing more for documentation, than a domestic driver's license in good standing from your home country. With that said, there are some legal discrepancies worth noting. While it's not technically a requirement to posses an international driver's license, if you are stopped by police without one, you may be fined.
When renting a vehicle in Barcelona most car categories have the ability to travel throughout Western Europe without any restrictions. Luxury vehicles, 4x4s, large vans and some automatics may have travel restrictions due to insurance regulations that have been placed on them.
