Essential info

Key facts about Province of Barcelona holiday rentals

Before you reach holiday rentals in the province, there are a few key facts you may want to know to prepare properly. As part of the EU, Spain uses the euro, so you’ll have to exchange for some local cash. While tipping isn’t customary in most cases, fine-dining servers do appreciate tips for exceptional service. A few coins generally will suffice, but make sure you leave actual physical tender, as tips on a credit card may not make it to the server. You should also note that Spaniards are typically not all that adept at speaking English. While servers and younger people tend to understand enough to get by, it’s not uncommon to encounter taxi drivers and shop owners who know virtually no English, so try to learn a bit of Spanish before setting out. Additionally, keep in mind that drinking alcohol on the streets is forbidden. Even smoking is only allowed in designated areas.
