A: Firstly this is very rare. You would normally receive a confirmation email within a few minutes of submitting your order.

A: If you do not have a smartphone you can always print out the coupons and bring them with you.
Q: Where does the Aerobus stop me in the city centre. How do I get to my hotel?
A: The Aerobus has many stops in Barcelona City Centre. We recommend you look up the closest Aerobus stop to your hotel and get off at that stop and walk to your hotel from there.
If the Aerobus stop is not walking distance to your hotel then we recommend you find the nearest metro stop to your hotel using our Barcelona metro map and catch the metro and get off at the stop that is nearest to your hotel. You would need to buy a separate metro ticket for each member of your group or a T10 travel ticket which you can share with your group.
Alternatively you can take a Barcelona taxi from the nearest aerobus stop to finish the leg for your journey. A short taxi ride would be much cheaper than taking a taxi all the way from the airport. Alternatively you can take a short taxi ride to your hotel. Taxis are plentiful throughout the city centre and you can easily flag one down.
