Sol-Mar is a Spanish car hire company, mainly operating at Spanish airports. It has offices at Girona airport and Barcelona airport, but doesn´t have any in Barcelona centre.

Sol Mar is a smaller Spanish car hire company, and most of their offices are found at Spanish airports. The prices are very reasonable and they have a wide range of vehicles on offer, from automatics to convertibles. Their airport office is a little further from the airport than the other car hire companies, but they offer a shuttle service from the airport to their office. It´s worth checking their prices as they can offer very reasonable rates, especially since they are open 24 hours, 7 days a week (with advance booking).

Comments about Sol-Mar

No signs at airport for Solmar pick up
19 Sep 2016 Paul
I have just used Solmar for a weeks car hire from Barcelona airport. There are no signs for Solmar pick up point at the airport and I had to ask a car rental company across the road what to do. Wasted an hour and was about to get a taxi when the shuttle bus turned up. Office is understaffed and it took me 40 minutes to be processed. Fortunetately no problems with the car during my holiday. It is clear to me that Solmar are a low cost rental company but this means that location and service are not as good as the mainstream companies.

I have just come back from Barcelona. We arrived at approx 22.00 and waited where i was told too, an hour later we were still stoodd there. Another hire company took us to the solmar base just off the airport to find them just closing, they said they were waiting for us, not a chance. Car was all dinted, and made funny noises. Then when dropping the car off it had to be full, which it was, and when inspecting it, they said it needed more and sent us off back to a garage to put more in. Luckily we were there in plenty of time! Would not rent from them again!
Solmar rip-off

I strongly discourage anyone considering to rent from Solmar in Barcelona to reconsider. Risk is you will not only be disappointed - you will also be tricked into changes in the contract that is not in your favour. It doesn't matter what type of car you paid for - they will trick you into accepting a small car without compensation. And there is nowhere to complain, impossible to contact by phone or email. It is a rip-off.
Never a problem at Gerona

I've been using Solmar at Gerona airport for nearly 7 years and would not think of changing. Always get a new clean car. Staff at Gerona Airport are always very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended by a frequent traveller to Spain.

Very poor experience Old car (over 60000 km), broken luggage shelf didn't close and air conditioning didn't work. Scam on deposit. This is charged to ones credit card. On return it is refunded. However If your card is in another currency n each occasion one has to pay currency conversion charges which added up to a lot as the excess was 600 euro. All other companies I have used just keep a credit card reserve but don't charge for it unless needed.
