Car Rental at Girona Train Station are Close on Sunday?

My friend and I are meeting friends in Cadaques on Sunday. We need a car.

We'll travel by train from Madrid to Girona City, and rent a car at Girona train station. But I can't find a car rental at Girona station that's open on Sunday. I'm guessing there's gotta be a car rental available on Sunday at the train station. Is there? Are there?

I've searched this forum and I can't find some answer or current ones.

Thank you.

You will be extremely lucky to find a car rental office open on a Sunday outside an airport.

Nearest station from Madrid to Cadaques is Figueres. There is a high speed AVE service as well to Figueres Vilafant.

You can take a taxi from Fiqueres or bus from Figueres bus station. Journey is about one hour.

I have seen Europcar office open on a Sunday at Girona train station. I know they only man it for scheduled pick ups and drop offs though. Office is empty if nothing pre booked, the same as for out of hours rentals in an evening on weekdays.

I suspect cost will be higher than if you could drop off at airport. I suggest you compare prices on their website and then judge convenience v cost.

Hola Darren, and thanks to everyone. Europcar is a car rental company? Not just a broker? Aside from Europcar are there other car rental companies open on Sunday in another location perhaps?

Yes, Europcar are a very large car rental company, who also own National and Alamo.

You could try Avis but they always seemed to be shut on a Sunday at the station.

If you are happy to go to Girona Airport then you will have a pick from at least a dozen operators, all of which are open on a Sunday.

The airport is about 12 km outside the city so you are looking at taxi or bus to get there from Girona station, the bus station is next to the train station.
