Refueling a rental car
If you plan to drive directly from Reus Airport with your own rental car, you will make a good decision if you choose a fully fueled rental car with a fair refueling policy, since there is no gas station at the airport and therefore you do not have to go directly in search of a gas station. The nearest EsclatOil gas station is located at "Carrer Argentina, 13" and another Estació de Servei Cepsa Cim del Camp is located at the "Autovia del Mediterrani", near the entrance to the A7 in the direction of Tarragona.
Although Reus is often used by most tourists only as a springboard for a city trip in Barcelona or a beach stay in Tarragona, the city has much more to offer than you might think at first glance. Just take your rental car on a short tour and look into the Gaudi Center, enjoy a coffee on the Plaza del Mercadal, take a look at the Pere Mata Institute, a former mental hospital or let the ceiling paintings in the magnificent Bofarull Palace take you back in time. If you would like to make some side trips in the surrounding area with your rental car or even start a round trip, then you will find some kilometer and driving time information below, which may help you in your travel planning.
