However, renting a car is an excellent solution whenever a local’s car breaks down and they need a fast means of movement. While in the U.S. you would normally pick up the phone or go online and get in touch with some emergency mechanics or to have them come over and fix the broken ignition or stuck lock, you can do something similar in Barcelona.
