Long-term parking at Charlotte is the most affordable option, with rates of just $5 per day and free shuttle service to and from the terminals. The daily and daily north lots charge $7 per day, while the hourly lot charges a maximum of $17 per day. To ensure that all travellers have access to the pampering they deserve, the airport offers kerbside valet parking at $17 per day and business valet service at $10 per day. When you use the business valet, you'll have access to free shuttle service, automotive services while you're gone, and the ability to make reservations ahead of time. Although there are off-site parking lots in the area, they can't beat the rates offered by the airport.
Taxis are the most popular means of airport transportation. Although the airport has arrangements with three taxi companies—Crown Cab, City Cab and Yellow Cab—you are free to choose any local taxi service. Fares to the downtown area should be roughly $25.

Flights Barcelona mean access to the capital of Catalonia and its many attractions; from the stunning architecture of Gaudi to art galleries and museums. For a longer stay, outside the city there are beautiful sandy beaches and the picturesque Montserrat mountain range. One sight not be missed is the fabulous Sagrada Familia. Although unfinished, this cathedral is impressive and visitors can climb to the top for a good view of the inside of the cathedral and the carvings on the towers. Park Guell is another fine example of Gaudi's work but is best visited during the week in the summertime as it can become very crowded. The Fundacio Joan Miro houses the largest collection of the artist's work anywhere in the world. Only a small percentage of the works can be displayed at any one time but it is still a beautiful museum.
