Van Taxis At Barcelona Airport?

Page Content

Q: Are there any van taxi that operate from the Airport to the centre of Barcelona and what are the charges?

A: Yes, there are van taxis that operate from Barcelona Airport. But it is important to note that the majority of van taxis are only licensed to carry a maximum of 4 passengers. A small percentage of van taxis have a special license for 6 passengers however it is best to specifically request these by making a call to a taxi company in advance of your journey.

You can also request a van taxi licensed for 6 passengers at Barcelona Airport however you would need to ask the taxi attendant at the taxi rank to find one for you. You will more than likely need to wait if you need a taxi for 6 passengers since only a small percentage of van taxis have this special license.

Barcelona City Pass

When the next taxi van arrives you will then be assigned to it. Barcelona airport has good availability of all types of taxi, so I do not expect you would have to wait too long.

The rates for a van taxi licensed for 6 people are the same as for a regular taxi however you would have to pay more if you are looking to transport goods. The rates are displayed on the back passenger window.
