Whether you go to Barcelona on holiday/vacation or for work, the best way to start your visit of the Catalan capital is to book a taxi service from Barcelona Airport. The beautiful city of Barcelona, capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia, is Spain’s second largest city after its capital Madrid. Barcelona is colourful, lively and very cosmopolitan.

There are plenty of public taxis in the city, and it is usually easy to find one that will take you around the city centre with ease.
For those who arrive at the airport and need to get to their destination quickly, the best option is a private transfer service (a taxi service) in a car that is driven by a highly qualified driver with a state-approved licence for public-passenger service. If you are looking for a taxi in Barcelona Airport, do not mistake the El prat Airport with the Barcelona Airport in Girona.
