Barcelona Taxi Information

Barcelona Taxi Information

 

Taxi service information

 

The Barcelona taxi service operates with city fare rates for services within the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona.

 

The intercity fare, which is authorised by the Catalan Regional Government, is applied to routes outside of this geographic area.

 

The service always runs with a taximeter, which must be positioned in a visible place in the vehicle. The driver must always switch it on at the beginning of a route, and stop the meter at the end.

 

If the passenger has luggage, the driver shall help him/her to load and unload it from the trunk of the car.

 

Children under the age of 12 must be seated in the back seat of the car and supervised so that they do not distract the driver.

 

Eating, drinking and smoking are not permitted during the ride, even if the driver and passenger agree otherwise.

 

If you would like for the taxi to wait for you after the first route, the driver may ask you to pay for the route covered thus far, in addition to the price of a half hour’s wait time if in the city area and that of another hour if outside of the city, as a guarantee. If you have not returned by the end of such period, he/she may terminate the service.

 

The taxi is required to admit blind passengers accompanied by seeing eye dogs (Law of the Parliament of Catalonia 10/1993).

 

IMPORTANT

  • The city fares for the taxi service are printed on a sticker located in the rear window of the taxi
  • The taximeter shows the amount to pay. Ask always for receipt.
  • Change for payment the taxi up to: 20€

 

How to catch a cab?

 

In Barcelona and the municipalities of the metropolitan area, the most common ways to catch a cab in the street is to go to one of the taxi network stops which all of the municipalities have, or to use a hand signal to hail a cab when an empty one is approaching.

 

• At the stops, the customer must take the first vehicle in the order of departure at the stop. Circulating taxi drivers cannot pick up passengers within a 50-metre radius of a stop.

 

• The most suitable places to hail a cab in the street are the corners. Users must bear in mind that the taxi driver cannot make abrupt manoeuvres or stop the car in places that represent a hazard for traffic circulation.

 

• Passengers may also catch a cab at any of the stops in the shopping centres, service areas, or passenger stations in the metropolitan area.

In the event that several parties request the same taxi at the same time, the driver of the vehicle shall adhere to the following order of priorities:

 

• First he/she shall attend to those who are on the side of the road corresponding to the direction in which he/she is driving.

 

• He/she shall give priority to the physically disabled, elderly people, those who are ill, pregnant women or people travelling with young children. If none of these criteria can be applied to the case, he/she shall opt for the eldest person.

 

• Service may not be denied to anyone unless the person requesting a ride displays an obvious state of drunkenness or narcotic intoxication, or because the condition of the user or his/her luggage could leads to significant foreseeable damage to the vehicle.

 

• The taxi driver may at his/her own discretion admit pets accompanying the individuals requesting the service.

The taxi driver shall never deny transport to seeing eye dogs accompanying the blind, and shall never refuse to load wheelchairs.

 

 

How to request a cab by phone?

 

The telephone is another effective means of calling a cab. You may request a taxi by calling one of the 20 taxi radio dispatch centres that operate in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona.

 

Many of these centres have a fleet management system that allows them to send a taxi to the place requested by the user. The assigned taxi number is communicated by telephone call or SMS message.

 

The taxi will arrive to the requested place with the taximeter running, although the amount will not exceed the minimum fare.

 

 

Fares and methods of payment

 

The provision of the taxi service is subject to annually applied city fares. The authorised fares and supplements are required for all licence holders, drivers and users of the service.

 

The applicable city fares for the taxi service in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona are printed on a sticker located in the rear window of the vehicles.

 

 

Please remember that:

The T-1 is applied at night on regular weekdays between 20:00 pm and 8:00 am, and 24 hours a day on Saturdays and holidays, throughout the entire metropolitan area.

The T-2 is applied during the day (from 8:00 am to 20:00 pm) on regular weekdays throughout the entire metropolitan area.

took a licensed cab from the barcelona airport to my hotel. having searched around before the tate should be about 30-35 (night rate), but the driver charged me 60, he has added 20+€ as supplement!!!!!!!! but as my 2 babies were very tired and hungry at that time I did not argue but relutantly paid. The interesting driver "kindly" gave me his number and asked to call him for further trip because his cab was big but do we look that stupid? The beautiful city is ruined by the dishonest taxi drivers.

Took a taxi today from Airport to the hotel. The taximeter showed 24 Euro. The taxi driver charged 30 Euro with all type of excuses including a tax, which he could not explain. After reading all these comments about taxis in Barcelona, I find a pitty that visitor are having such negative impresions. Why is there no control?

Honest driver but it took awhile to find him
- Brazilia
(11 Oct 2013 - 09:30)
I was told by my host it would be a 30euro cab ride from the airport to the pedestrian part of the Gotic where I was staying. The first cab in the airport line said 55 euro - I declined. Second cab said no, he would not waste his time going into the area and would drop me outside with my bags. I declined again. The airport taxi lady was becoming frustrated and took me aside and said to wait. She talked with a number of cabbies - after about 10 minutes she directed me to a cabbie who said yes 35euro to my door. The fare was 31 euro on the meter (after the legal standard surcharge was added at the end of the ride) and he used his personal cell phone to call my host when we could not find the proper door. I tried to tip him up to 35 euro but he refused - I insisted and he smiled.
I do not trust the majority of drivers, but they are not all bad. Just be sure to show the address to the driver and get a quote before getting into the car.

I would just like to say that taxis are NOT the same all over the world.
Taxis are the same all over the world.

(31 Aug 2013 - 09:00)
In Sweden one fare could cost from 10$US, to 100$US ! Yes, its a scam. But people will be people. Considering that there is over 4 million people in Barcelona and the number of complaints on this site, I think its still safe to grab a Cab here.
Personally I would print out a copy of the prices for Taxis in Barcelona.
Then take a photo of the taxameter when we arrive, BEFORE the driver can "adjust" the meter. And DONT get out of the Cab until you all agree. Then the driver cant drive of with your luggage. If NOT, then call the police by # 112 and dont get out of the cab until you get your bags or the police arrive !
Beware if you have to catch a ride/flight or so, then you are at the "mercy" of the driver. You can of course take a photo of the driver / his ID and so forth and later complain IF you have witnesses - but is it worth the hassle ?
Barcelona is like most big towns. Enjoy the sights and forget the "small stuff".
OR, go to Wietnam ;-)

Got taxi yesterday 29 aug 2013 .. From airport term 2 to our hotel . Meter showed 25 euro and the driver then added 4 euro and then unbelievably added another 20 euro ... As our bags were in the cab and he couldn't speak much English I reluctantly paid. When we got in the hotel the guy at reception was so disgusted he gave us an upgrade ... Thank you hotel andante but please be aware of the scammers ( and this was an official airport taxi)

We have just come back from Barcelona and have used quite a few cabs who were in the main honest and reliable however my wife and daughters did use one who was fairly foul he did not take them to the destination they asked for and was rude and bad tempered. We also had an interesting experience getting a cab from our hotel to the airport the meter read 19.80 I said to the driver I would give him 25 including what I thought was a fair tip and was given 15 euros change from a 50 euro note making the fare 35 euros. Before we went to Barcelona I was warned about pickpockets I did not realise they were all driving taxis.

This happened today. Took taxi from in front of Famillia Sagrada to go to Corte ingles on Avenue Diagnol. The fare was 8 Euros or so. I gave a ten and when about to leave taximeter read 15! I then gave a 50 and he returned 35, 10 of which was mine. Having woken at 4 am did not realize until a few minutes later but then he had rushed off. 9 euro ride ended up a 25 euro ride. Beware of this scam and the taxi drivers in front of touristic places. It is a pitty scammers tarnish the reputation of Barcelona as a safe and hones city.

Its a bit unfair to label Barcelona as a dump because of their taxi drivers. Having said that, from my own point of view and the views of everyone I've spoken to, or whose experiences I have read, it it pretty clear to me that Barcelona taxi drivers are not to be trusted.

To the driver who didnt return my camcorder can I just say, I hope and pray that some day you lose your cherished and unreplaceable photographs and videos

ALWAYS get a price before embarking on your journey. From La Rambla we were charged 17.5 Euro rather than the 9.5 Euro on the meter to the train station.

When I disputed the suplements I was told it was a 7.5euro supplement. I had no time to argue as I had a train to catch.

Barcelona is a dirty sh$t hole full of scammers. it was refreshing on arriving at Girona to meet a honest taxi driver. Dont belive the hype Barcelona is a dump!

Just got back from barcelona where a Taxi from Airport, read 21 euros on the metre but female driver took 38 euros out of the 40 euros i gave her and said it was airport rate. I refused to leave cab and asked her to ring the police and she gave me my money back. A bit of a Scamming city but still great. Tip Avoid large busy restaurants in popular places,you might as well be eating in a back street cafe back home.Choose your eateries Wisely.

Taxi #3618 will OVERCHARGE you!
- jessi
(12 Oct 2012 - 09:00)
On october 9, 2013, we unfortunately got into taxi #3618 at the airport and asked to be taken to the harbor. He told us the fare would be 32e, but once we arrived he told us 38e (the meter read 24e). He refused to give us our two bags until we paid the extra money. He also refused to drop us off at the front of the hotel - probably because he did not want the hotel doorman to find out he was overcharging customers. DRIVER #3618 IS DISHONEST AND SHOULD HAVE HIS LICENSE TAKEN AWAY!!

Gross over charge of taxi service & speeding
- Mr A P Smith
(8 Sep 2012 - 10:15)
Our hotel, 1898 0n La Rambla 1098, phoned for a taxi to take us to Franco rail station. It arrived and our cases were put in the boot. The driver drove at speeds which put my wife and I in fear of our lives. We were aware how far it was to the station and how much approxamately it would cost as we had come from the station to the hotel. The taxi went all round the houses and not a direct route. This was not the first time this had happened on the day as we had used two other taxis which had obviously taken a longer route to get more money. When we arrives at the station the meter show 10e and was then adjusted to read 17.5e.We complained and after a very heated argument he reduced it to 10e. If we had had our bags out of the boot at this point I would have called the police but i was affraid he would go off with the bags. It is a pity that drivers rip off non Spanish speaking tourists( probally not all drivers I must say) In short I will not be going back to that place and do not suppose that any thing will be done but I will be talking to the hotel, british consulate and spanish authorities.

Similar experience to others - fare from airport to Place Espanya on meter was E12.65. Went to pay and was asked for E29.65. Refused, but was told this was taxes, bags, etc. Said, OK, but not E17 worth and again refused. Driver said he would call the police and I agreed. Police arrived in about 4 minutes. Listened to my side and his, and then asked another cab driver. Turns out the minimum fare from the airport is E20. This didn't explain the discrepancy, but the airport tax is E3.10, E1 per bag, and E2 for something else. Made E20.75, which I paid. Police seemed to know he was lying, but he had cancelled the meter by the time they arrived and they advised me to accept that there had been a misunderstanding. I was told by a friend who has lived in Barcelona for years to immediately call the police about anything suspicious with taxi drivers

We lost our digital camera last night in the taxi from the W hotel to the Melon District Hotel around 02:00. My girlfriend put the camera in the back of the passenger seat and forgot about it.

The camera is not that expensive, but the pictures on it are. We will pay €50,- for the camera if it is found, we are in Barcelona for a couple of more days!

Please contact: 0031624637271 or robbinvanrooij@live.nl.

Thanks in advance!

J'ai 15 ans et j'ai oublié mon appareil photo dans un taxi à Barcelone le mercredi 18 juillet 2012 vers 17h00, après un trajet avec ma famille de La Sagrada Familia à la Place de la Catalunya.
Je n'ai pas relevé le numéro du taxi car je m'en suis aperçu après.
L'appareil photo numérique est un PENTAX gris métal qui était dans son étui noir avec écrit dessus PENTAX en gris.

J'offre un récompense de 30 euros. Ecrire à jpgagne@sfr.fr ou tel : 06 19 99 72 78

Taxi fare

Before you get into a Taxi always ask the price of the journey. How much will it cost to...? Once the price has been negociated, the Taxi driver cannot change it. Always check the metre switched on and adjusted when you get in.
Tourist are always a target. Be alert and stay safe!
scammed with fare

Taxi cab #2377 do not take. He is a total scammer. My husband and I had a ride from the port to the airport. 2 bags and 1 backpack that we handled. After much research the ride should have cost 35e but instead he charged us 45e, 6:30am, no traffic. When I called him on it he tried to tell me of the extra fees. I told him I was aware of the bagagge fee, port fee, and airport fee that adds to $9.20. The meter read 2.25 and 23.65 so he added 20e of fees. short of having a shouting match at the airport we paid it. What a way to have your vaction end. Do no get in a cab until you are very clear with the driver what it is going to cost.

I lost my photo camera CANON 550D in the taxi. We took the taxi from TRAMVIA-BLAU, TIBIDABO around 3:40 pm. going to Av. DIAGONAL, L'Illia shopping mall. The taxi driver seems so nice to us & take us to the quickies way possible. I do hope he's a kindhearted man too to report our missing camera. The camera is not the most important thing to get back but our pictures taken on our trip to Asia & many pictures as well on our holiday here in Barcelona. Thank you Mr. Driver if you happened to report it.

Hey sorry about the phone ...
I lost my phone, which was in my jacket pocket, that same day in a taxi headed to the Moll D'Adssat to embark on a cruise. The dispatcher tracked down the cab driver who informed the cruise line director that he found my jacket, I assume he discovered my phone in there and decided to let the dispatcher know he never found my phone but the cruise director never indicated my phone was missing. She told them my "gray jacket" was missing

Scammed by taxi drivers in Barcelona yesterday 28/06/2012
- upset
(29 Jun 2012 - 11:15)
yesterday I arrived Barcelona with my family( husband & 2 kids), we got in a taxi from the airport and when we arrived our hotel the meter read €22 but through some magical handling of it the meter showed €42 after the driver was done with it. I was left wondering what had gone on but where I'm from(Nigeria) you are conditioned to think that every other part of the world is honest but from what I have experienced that is totally untrue because I have never been scammed in my life except for my experiences abroad, a similar thing happened to us in Amsterdam. The authorities have to do something about this

There should be an advisory issued to warn against scam taxi drivers in Bracelona. I recently came back from Bracelona where I was scammed twice (out of three taxi rides). The taxi drivers are giving the city a bad reputation.

Taxi driver scam Nov 4, 2011 Barcelona
- K. Shuler
(11 Nov 2011 - 12:30)
From Celebrity (Barcelona Port) to Melia International Hotel on Sarria, a taxi driver charged us 25 Euros. The meter read 11.70 Euros-said the extra charge was for luggage. Stupidly we paid but memorized Taxi#10182 and license 4700FRC. We reported the incident to the hotel desk. We found out the correct charge - 14 Euros - from another couple who made the same trip.
Scam Driver

Taxi driver scammed us in Barcelona. Took taxi from hotel to a restaurant about 15 minutes away. Two blocks before the restaurant when the meter said 11 euros, he fiddled with the meter dials and on arrival at the restaurant, turned the meter off and told us the fare was 20 euros. We did not want to have a fight in the middle of the street so we paid but asked for a receipt. The driver wrote his name on the receipt-Gregorio Eino Gueraero. The return to the hotel was 12.50 euros. We reported this to the hotel in case they can track this scam artist down.

Lost and found service
- Estelle
(14 May 2011 - 11:30)
Better not to forget anything in a taxi on Friday night! As there is no way you can contact anyone before Monday... Either the receipts should indicate the taxi company (which they don't, only the plate number. This means you have to call tens and tens of companies to try and locate your taxi), or the lost and found service should be open during the weekend as well...

El taxi es el mejor transporte publico-privado que tiene la ciudad es rápido , seguro y responsable .

Que supone un coste cero para la administración local y la mayor fuente de recaudación para la misma .
