Transport and Airport transfers in Barcelona
Barcelona–El Prat Airport is situated 12 km southwest of Barcelona. The airport has two terminals, and serves primarily domestic, European and North African destinations. Around 35 million people make use of the airport each year. Our private transfer to the city centre takes 20 minutes.
Public taxis in Barcelona are black and yellow and taxi ranks can be found at various places in the city.
However, hailing a taxi in Barcelona is quite a battling adventure and if you get one, there is always the risk of ending up with a high rated fare due to detours or heavy traffic, especially if you are going to the suburbs or if the taxi driver takes you the long way around. Public transport is even worse.
If you do happen to hop in a public taxi for your transfers, our advice is to stick to licensed ones. If you get a single person fare, do not hesitate to say no if the taxi wants to pick people up on the way or if the taxi driver wants 'extra money for traffic', even if you agreed on a price before the trip.
Avoid queuing up at the airport and skip infernal traffic jams by travelling with us. Arrive at your destination safely and comfortably in one of our airport taxis or private shuttle buses.
