Car Hire is another possible travel option. There are a number of car hire companies established at Girona Airport, either inside the terminal building or five minutes away by shuttle service in Vilobi D´Onyar.
Hiring a car can work out fairly cheap, especially for small groups. It will give you the freedom to enjoy Costa Brava and Barcelona in your own time, and is an excellent alternative as the public transport around the Costa Brava is fairly limited. The roads around the area are straight-forward and Girona airport has good road connections to Costa Brava, Girona centre and Barcelona.
There are various car rental companies operating at Girona airport and in Barcelona. Make sure you check with the company that it´s possible to leave the car at a different drop-off point if you´re only making a one way trip. The offices are generally open from 08.00-23.45, or longer. Make sure you check with each company for their exact opening times, as they can change depending on the time of year.
