Distances and routes

Barcelona's Airport, better known as El Prat, takes its name from the small town in which it is situated. El Prat de Llobregat is located about 15 kilometers from the Catalan capital, facilitating fairly quick transfers.  For example, the average journey time by car to reach the Plaça de Catalunya is about 20/25 minutes.  If, on the other hand, you choose to travel on the Aerobús: the journey time would double! If you travel on the Aerobús you would save money when travelling on your own as the cost is €5.90 per person.  However, if you are travelling with other people, a taxi undoubtedly becomes the most convenient mode of transport.

Travel Tips

Despite the fact that the majority of taxi drivers in Barcelona are reliable, there is always the risk of finding a driver who will "round up" the charges and take advantage of the fact that a tourist has little or no knowledge of the different areas or distances in the city. In order to avoid the possibility of encountering a dishonest driver, all you have to do is book on-line a Barcelona Airport Taxi a fixed price. A small amount will be payable with a credit card and the rest will be payable in cash to the driver.  This means you won't have to worry about drivers who take advantage of their passengers on the fares and you also won't have any problems communicating with the driver about where you want to go.  In fact, your driver will know your intended destination already and there won't be any difficulties if you don't speak Spanish. In Barcelona it is quite common to find a range of different street names: Calle (or Carrer in Catalan), Avenida (Avinguda in Catalan), Rambla, Ronda, and Passatge are just a few examples. Just think, in the city you'll find the Carrer de Sant Pau, Ronda de Sant Pau, and Passatge de Sant Pau ... and these are all different streets! Because of this, and for a variety of other reasons, you should think about the convenience of not having to try and explain your required destination to someone - in another language!  In addition to all this, travelling by taxi means you will be able to reach the center of the city with a shorter journey time compared to using the public buses, which tend to stop quite frequently and never seem to have a stop that's close to where you are staying. 

How the private taxi service works

A driver will be waiting for you in the Arrivals Hall at Barcelona's El Prat Airport with a sign showing your name. You won't have to look for the driver - he will be looking out for you!  In addition to this, if you book a Barcelona Airport Taxi, your driver will wait for you even if your flight is delayed and he will be checking your flight's arrival time to ensure he has the up to date information on your flight.  Once you have loaded your luggage into the car, you won't even need to tell him where you are going because he will already know where to take you and will always choose the quickest route in order to get you there.  You will be travelling in comfort with a professional, experienced driver.  Your journey on board a private taxi will be at a fixed price which will contribute towards making your airport transfers as pleasant as possible.
