Gerona, also known as Girona among the Catalan population, is an impressive medieval city. The city's wealth during the Middle Ages has left many impressive Roman and Gothic buildings. The combination of these buildings and the city's location certainly make it worth a visit.
Gerona has about 77,000 inhabitants, which is nowhere near enough to make it one of Spain's 30 largest cities. However, Gerona is one of the larger cities in the north of the autonomous region of Catalonia.
Gerona is situated at about 36 kilometers of the Mediterranean. The Onyar river flows straight through elegant Gerona. To the north-west of the city are the outskirts of the Pyrenees, which are located at about 75 kilometers from Gerona.
Gerona is located in an agricultural area. Its economy depends to a large extent on the trade of the produce that is cultivated nearby. Some of the products that are traded in Gerona, among other places on its big market, are pigs and chickens.
Tourism also plays a major role in Gerona's economy. During the summer, many students and other tourists come to the city. Many people visit the city to enjoy its nightlife and old buildings.
Gerona's airport, Girona Aiport, is located 11 kilometers to the south of the city. It is used by low cost carriers like Ryanair, for tourists who are headed for Barcelona. As a result, the city is a cheap destination to reach.
If you do not have a rental car, you can use Gerona's public transport. Gerona has a train station, from which you can travel to, among other places, Barcelona and France. The Barcelona bus service provides transport from Gerona Airport to the city. The same bus line connects Gerona to Barcelona.
Traffic and Parking
Driving in Gerona is unlikely to pose any problems. Like in many cities, it may be a bit difficult to find a place to park your car in the city center, if you did not book a hotel that includes parking. In light of the city's size, it is simple to park your car nearby and proceed on foot.
There are hotels in every price range in Gerona. During the peak season (spring and summer) we certainly recommend booking advance.

Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).
