Buy Tickets Ahead of Time: One of the best ways that you can save time and often money is by purchasing tickets that you know for sure you will be using ahead of time and before your trip has even begun.

Carry Around a Map: If you do not have the luxury of a working data phone while in Barcelona, be sure to always carry around a map of the city, metro lines, bus lines and train lines to avoid getting lost or losing your way while trying to find something in particular!

Invest in a Transport Card: Whether you want to purchase the Barcelona Card or a Hola Card, both are able to save you loads of time and money during your stay in the city. Figure out which one suits your needs and preferences better and get online to purchase!

Know the Basic Phrases: Although many people throughout Barcelona speak English, it always helps when using a taxi, riding the metro and figuring your way to and from the airport to know the basics. 

Beware of Pickpockets: Whenever you are in any larger city, including Barcelona, you want to always be aware of your surroundings and although it most likely won’t happen, make sure you keep your bags, purses and wallets covered and out of reach for pick pocketers to grab while on public transportation.
