Barcelona airport transfers

Can anyone recommend a good reputable transfer company for airport transfer in Barcelona - to go straight into city centre? Or any tips, would be greatly appreciated.

Hola Ade,

In the Top Question - Arriving & Departing - there are some links to transfer companies. Some folks have used Sun Transfers but reviews are very mixed. From the airport to the city centre, regular taxis and the Aerobus work very well.

A taxi should cost under 30 euros to the centre and a regular vehicle seats 4 people.

The Aerobus is just under 6 euros pp so if you are traveling with 3-4 people, a taxi is almost a better deal.

Hi - there are six of us. It sounds as if it will be just as practical for us to take two taxis (three each in the taxi) as opposed to hiring a transport company - is that correct? Since we're flying in to take a cruise - each person will have one suitcase and a carry-on. Are the taxis equipped to handle that much luggage?

Thanks

Hola Palermo,

If you're 6, ask the Taxi Marshall to hail you a larger vehicle (like a family van). It's the same price as a regular taxi. Usually, it comes in a few minutes. If he says none are available, only then go for 2 taxis.

I have always used public transport(airport train or bus),except for one or two times a taxi, and never had a problem. They are very reliable. But that depends of course,where your destination in the city is. If you are going to a hotel which is not situated near the train or bus stops,then I recommend a taxi. At El Prat,it is very simple to find transport once you step outside the terminals. Pre-ordering and pre-paying transport is in my opinion simply a waste of time and money.

This thread is almost 1 year old. Strange to bring it back up. Looks like self-promotion.
