Leaving Barcelona early on a Sunday.

We have a 7:40am flight home on a Sunday. We are staying close to the Segrada Familia, just wondering how easy it will be to get a taxi at 5am in the morning and what the fare is likely to be. We are staying in an apartment, a family of 4 and without access to a phone, if we pre book a taxi has anyone experience on the reliability this early?

Hola Anna,

It should be about 40-45 euros, including airport surplus and cost of calling a taxi. I would ask the hotel manager to call the day before; they must have a taxi company that they regularly use. Or you could look at the ones listed in the Top Question on Arriving & Departing.

I used to book taxis in advance for early morning business flights/trains, they are reliable at any time. However, I stopped doing that years ago due to a change of company with a a different travel policy, and actually never had to wait more than a few minutes, and I do live in a much less busy area than your apartment is. Now I never prebook taxis, it saves money. Near Sagrada Familia, I would just head to a main street (ie Mallorca, or walk down to Arago). Around 5am on a Sunday there are actually many taxis around, picking people who head back home after the Saturday night

Anna:

Barcelona has taxis available at all hours. You can go to a main street and flag one down easily.
