"Outrageous amount !!!!!" Taxi Tip by jlanza29

Taxi, Barcelona: 21 reviews and 17 photos

Since traveling in Europe is not cheap for us American's we try not to take taxi's. Sometimes we have no choice and this was one of those times, we had a 6:00 am flight to Madrid and the buses don't run that early. We were staying in the center of Barcelona, so a taxi it was ....... the fare was a fair 32 Euro's .... but then here's the add on's that really irk us as travelers ..... 1 euro per bag, so it was 3 of us so that 3 euro's .... a 5 Euro charge because it was before 6:00 AM ..... then a 5 Euro charge to bring you to the airport .... so the 32 Euro ride was suddenly 45 Euro's .... that's about $60 US dollars !!!!!! We had no choice so be for-warned if you decide to take a taxi to the airport !!!!!!!
