Last September our taxi fare from Il Jardi hotel to the Barcelona airport was 25 Euros (showing on the meter) 6 Euros for 2 bags and an additional 25 Euros for we don't know what. The driver insisted we owed that additional fare but couldn't really explain it. The taxi had been ordered by the hotel reception (we did not pick it off the street). We did pay the whole amount because we don't speak Spanish well enough to discuss it, but felt we had been ripped off.
I tried to get the hotel to explain the situation upon returning home to Canada, but they didn't have an explanation.
We will be in Barcelona again this September and needing, again, to get to the airport. Can anyone enlighten me as to what this extra charge might have been for?
My estimate for the Barcelona-airport fare is around 25-30 Euros & I believe I should pay only what the meter reads plus something for luggage. No?
Many thanks in advance for your information.
