Transfers from Barcelona to El Prat Airport (BCN)

Private Transfers from Barcelona to Airport

Source: skyscrapercity

It can be difficult for a tourist to leave Barcelona: even a two-week vacation is too little for such a colorful city. Transfers make parting more comfortable. You won’t have to look for a taxi stand or a bus stop and won’t have to carry all the suitcases.

You book a transfer in advance and come to the air hub with comfort. The voucher will contain all the information about your booking.

There is 12 kilometers between the city and the air hub. The transfer will take you there in 20–25  minutes. The cost of the trip starts from 40 euros.

Taxi to El Prat

Source: v-ispanii

A taxi to Barcelona Airport El Prat will cost 35–40 euro. You will pay an extra fee for a suitcase: 4 euro per piece. 

There are three tariffs:

  • Tariff 1 is used for weekdays from 08:00 to 20:00. The cost per km is 1.17 euro. 

  • Tariff 2 is for a night trip on weekdays from 20:00 to 08:00. The cost per km is 1.47 euro. 

  • Tariff 3 is applied on Sundays and holidays. The cost per km is 1.31 euro. 

The total sum depends on your destination. 

Don’t expect Catalan taxi drivers to speak English. They are not required to. If you are not confident in your Spanish, write the place of your destination on a piece of paper.  

If you have too much luggage (for example, you’ve bought too much jamon for all of your relatives), it can be a problem to find a spacious cab fast. It’s better to be on the safe side and book a transfer in advance. You can choose a suitable car online.
