Smile Taxi in Barcelona

Does anyone know if it's easy to get a taxi from the port in Barcelona to the airport. How long should it take to get to the airport and what should the approximate fare be? Would it be better to hire a driver? Thanks.
Joan

Default Taxi in Barcelona

We were just there in June and it is very easy and quick to get a taxi to your hotel or elsewhere at the port. However, you are at the taxi driver's mercy if you don't know the way. Ours took us out of the way and so our fare was double what it should have been. We realized this later when we were walking around but what can you do?

We just returned from the Star disembarking in Barcelona. We had Angie meet us at the port and take us to a hotel and then later in the week from the hotel to the airport. She was timely and cost no more than a taxi and had new van. From port to hotel, 25e and from hotel to airport 30e. The regular taxi que was extremely long and very few taxi vans if there are four of you with luggage. If you want her e-mail let me know.

Cool Taxi RipOffs in Barcelona

We just got back from the Star Princess 6/21 sailing and taxi's were not really a problem. But to qualify that there are two things you must check before you get into the cab. First of all, ask how much it is going to cost to go somewhere before you get into the cab. In some places, like the place where you catch the cab at the ship's pier it will be posted. Secondly, when you have luggage, remember that you will be charged an extra Euro for each piece of baggage. (I think this was a bit of a rip off.) It cost us $15 Euro to go from the Ship to the Airport including a tip.

Arriving in Barclona on Friday, July 16 for Tuesday sailing on Millienium - would love to have Angie contact info. Last year we hired car from the Barcelona Arts which was way to high priced for me.

Thumbs up Barcelona and taxis

The cost from the airport to the pier is 30 US.( by taxi)...yes they will take dollars- but better to have EU.
We use this company every time we are in Barcelona and seems like alot of the cruises for Med start there so have used them alot.

they use a minivan not a car so can hold 4 people and lots of luggage easy.
