Q: We arrive at the cruise terminal, and we will be spending one day in Barcelona then leaving via Barcelona Airport. We want to leave our suitcases in safe storage so that we can enjoy our last day in Barcelona before leaving Spain. Can you please give us advice and tell us if we need to book space in the left luggage centre to ensure that we have spaces? Thank you.
A: I recommend that you leave your luggage at Sants Estació (Barcelona Sants) Rail station left luggage department. You can then explore Barcelona and then return to Sants Estació to pick up your bags. You can then catch the train from Sants Estació directly to Barcelona airport.
Another option is that you leave your luggage at the left luggage near Plaça de Catalunya, right in the city centre of Barcelona. Before going to the airport you can return to Plaça de Catalunya, pick up your luggage and take the Aerobus, Barcelona airport express bus from Plaça de Catalunya.

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.
