Frequently asked questions about Barcelona Airport transfers

What are other things to do than Airport transfers that are worth visiting in Barcelona?

The other unmissable things to do in Barcelona are:

Barcelona airport transfers: Everything you need to know 

If you love art, architecture, good food, and soccer, then no wonder you’re going to Barcelona. Knowing how to get from and to the airport in Barcelona will make your trip much easier and less stressful. You can use a lot of different public transportation to move between neighborhoods, like the metro, bus, local trains, and trams. However, the easiest way to get to the airport is by grabbing one of the Barcelona airport transfers. Why waste time in the metro if you can spend it visiting the famous La Sagrada Familia instead?

What makes airport transfers convenient in Barcelona?

Public transportation options between Barcelona-El Prat Airport and the city center include the bus and train. However, the bus generally makes many stops, making it a long trip between the two locations, and the train only runs once or twice per hour. This is rather inconvenient if you’re tired, don’t want to waste time, or are in a hurry. With an airport transfer service, you are able to quickly travel between the airport and downtown at any time you prefer. You can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Keep in mind that during the summer months, the weather can also become particularly warm and humid. It sounds great for sunbathing, but is not very enjoyable when you are taking public transportation and walking around the city with your suitcases. Most airport transfers have air conditioning, which will help to make your travel experience more comfortable. The trip will be quick, as it only takes about 25 minutes to drive to the airport from the city.

What kind of airport transfers can I choose?

One of the most budget-friendly choices is a shared bus transfer, which will bring you directly to your destination. This is a good option if you’re traveling in a group because it can fit many people. Make sure everyone books ahead of time in order to be certain that there is enough room for all the people you are traveling with. If you feel like treating yourself, you can choose to book a VIP car instead, which is a stylish option that will make you feel like royalty. Traveling with a group but do not want to share the vehicle with people you don’t know? No problem, you can choose from vehicles like minivans, small coaches, minibuses, and standard coaches, depending on how many people are in your party.

How much money will it cost to book an airport transfer?

If you will be traveling in a private standard vehicle, plan on paying approximately 40€ to 50€ (around $43 to $54). For a fancier VIP car, the fare will be closer to 75€ for the trip (approximately $81). If you decide to take the affordable shared bus transfer, it is 15€ per person (approximately $16). Groups of up to 13 passengers traveling in a small mini coach will be paying around 70€ (approximately $76).

What is the best time for me to reserve my airport transfer?

If you are booking any type of shared transfer, or a larger vehicle that can fit bigger groups, try to reserve your booking ahead of time. Keep in mind that these types of airport transfers tend to fill up quickly. Standard cars, such as sedans, can be booked more last minute as there are many choices available. For those that will be flying during rush hour, such as 7 to 9 am or 5 to 7 pm, make sure to give yourself plenty of extra time to get to the airport. You never know how bad the traffic will be. You will also want to arrive two hours before your flight, as the Barcelona airport tends to be busy, particularly for international trips.

Is there anything else I should know about Barcelona’s transportation?

When taking a taxi from the airport to the city center, the price generally ends up being around 35€ (approximately $38). It is a better deal to opt for an airport transfer instead, as shared bus transfers can be as affordable as 15€ per person (approximately $16). Plus, if you’re sharing a van transfer with a group, you might find that the fare is even cheaper per person.
