Why do people book transfers in Barcelona

Transfer is a transportation service which meets and brings you exactly where you asked: a Kiwitaxi driver meets you at the airport (as close to the Arrivals as possible), at the hotel reception or at the exactly given address, helps you with your luggage and brings you fast- track to your destination.

You can pre-order inexpensive taxi transfer to the city center or to the airport, comfortable car transfer for the family with children, Economy minivan for a tourist group or a Luxury transfer. The transfer cost in Barcelona is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises : either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

Customer feedback

Superorganized in every detail. ....The information before, upgrading the car without extra charge in advance, the fast and nice service at the pick up place and the reasonable price!
Ten out of ten. Both drivers were on time and professional. Would definitely use Kiwi taxis again. Communication was also good Keeping us informed of driver contact details
The driver was waiting for us at the exit, even with the plane arriving late. He was very polite, drove well, we could understand each other perfectly in english (even that it was not our first language). Everything went well and I definetly recommend the service.

Transfers vs. Taxi in Barcelona, booked by phone or via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to wait for a cab. Whatever way you choose to book a taxi, by phone or via the app, you will have to wait. If you have a trip to the airport ahead and you are afraid of being late, it is worth booking a transfer from Barcelona downtown in advance for a desirable time.

Fixed price. Almost all taxis in Barcelona work according to the meter, which means, you will know the price of a trip only upon arrival. Kiwitaxi announces the precise sum at the stage of booking which doesn’t change.

You have trust in your carrier. Spanish taxi drivers regularly strike against Uber and Cabify, accusing them of unfair competition. Have no desire to be a part of these road wars? You just want to get to your destination and be confident about the service? Book a Kiwitaxi transfer: our drivers are the employees of licensed taxi companies.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

A bit more expensive. By local taxi, you will get from the city center to El Prat for 30–40 euro, and to Girona Airport— for 120–130 euro. Kiwitaxi prices on the same routes start from 46 and 148 euro.

Transfers in Barcelona vs. Bus or Shuttle bus

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to plan a complex route, unlike a trip by public transport, where you will have to make at least one change.

No language barrier. The majority of Barcelona residents do not speak English, and ticket machines seldom have a menu in English. Kiwitaxi website and our client support service are available in 5 languages including English. Besides, all our drivers can speak English too.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More expensive, even for a group. A bus ticket to El Prat Airport will cost 2,15 euro, and a shuttle ticket — 5,9 euro. By bus, one can travel to Girona Costa Brava air hub for 16 euro, and to Madrid — for 29–45 euro.

Transfers in Barcelona vs. Train

Advantages of a private transfer

You will travel seated. Seat numbers are not specified in RENFE train tickets, so you risk to travel standing up. Especially, if you happen to travel in a rush-hour. In case of a transfer, the whole car is at your disposal — you will get to your destination as comfortably as possible.

You do not depend on transport timetables. Trains run according to their timetables: you will have to adjust your trip to them. A Kiwitaxi, on the contrary, car can be ordered for any time convenient for you.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. You will get to Barcelona Airport for 3 euro, to Girona - for 11–16 euro, and to Madrid — for 85,1 euro.
