Petrol stations near Girona Airport

Depending on your car rental agreement, you may need to hand your car back with a full tank.

There’s a BP and a service station in the village of Vilobí d'Onyar, about seven minutes drive away from the airport. Come off the motorway at the exit for Girona Airport and turn left at the first roundabout instead of continuing towards the terminal. Turn right when you reach the T-junction and you’ll soon arrive in the village.

Driving around Girona Airport

The airport is just off the AP-7 (Autopista del Mediterráneo) motorway, which runs along Spain’s Mediterranean coast. You have to pay tolls to use it. Don’t worry if you haven’t got any Euro coins on you: the automatic toll booths all accept British credit and debit cards. On the AP-7 you will be given a ticket when you get onto the motorway. You put it in the machine and pay when you leave, so keep it somewhere safe during the journey.

Getting to your destination

Girona

Pretty as a picture and fiercely proud of its Catalan heritage, Girona is a pleasant little city peppered with trendy shops and delightful restaurants.

It takes just under 25 minutes to drive to Girona from the airport. The city council operate a number of free and paid car parks in the city centre. Pay and display parking is also available in Blue Zones (look out for blue lines on the kerb). There are also some privately operated multi-storeys, and plenty of hotels in Girona with car parks.

Barcelona

Catalonia’s lively capital never fails to impress. You don’t have to go far to find devotees waxing lyrical about the city’s tapas bars, Gaudi architecture, and buzzing atmosphere. Our local expert offers sage advice on the top ten things to do in Barcelona.

Many budget airlines use Girona Airport to offer cheap flights to Barcelona. It takes just over an hour to drive to the city from Girona Airport, and costs about €6.65 (about £4.75) in tolls. Pay and display parking is available in the city centre at a rate of €2.50 (about £1.80) per hour. Parking is often free during siesta (2pm-4pm). There are also lots of secure underground car parks, and many hotels in Barcelona offer car parking for guests.

Lloret de Mar

While it has all of the usual trappings of a Costa Brava tourist town, Lloret de Mar also has plenty to offer discerning travellers. Recently it’s become a bit of a darling with the travel blogger set, making it a destination to watch during 2015.

It takes about 25 minutes to drive to downtown Lloret de Mar from Girona Airport. It’s safer to park in the underground car parks rather than on the street. Not due to crime, but due to the over-zealous police force who will happily tow your car away if you accidentally park in the wrong place. You can expect to pay €2-4 (about £1.43-£2.86) per hour to park your car in a secure parking lot.
