How to Get from Girona to Other Destinations
Girona is an old city located in the northeast of Spain, in the community of Catalonia. In many chronicles and travel guides, it is often called ‘the immortal city’ - its walls survived twenty five sieges! To get to or from this fantastic place, one can use taxis, transfers, and different forms of public transportation.
Taxi from Girona
Taxis in Girona can be easily ordered via phone or the Internet. Besides, you can book a car at one of the local ranks (for instance, the largest one can be found in Plaza de la Independencia). Official taxis in Girona are white with a dark-blue stripe. A journey to Barcelona on a weekday afternoon will cost you approximately €140, and on the weekend/in the evening - €150-160. The average price for a taxi from Girona to Girona-Costa Brava Airport is €20. In case you have lots of baggage, you may be charged extra (generally, €1 per one item).

A Kiwitaxi private transfer might be a great choice in case you don’t wish to search for taxis on the spot or waste your time at a bus or train station. By using it, you will reach your desired destination fast and with no stops along the way. Besides, a transfer will provide you with a higher comfort level. A family may choose a spacious minivan, and a big group of travelers - a large minibus. All the vehicles we use for transfers are air-conditioned and are not older than 7 years.
