4am taxi from metro station pirámides to airport

Hi,

Hi, need to take the taxi at 4am for an early flight on the weekend and wanted to know how much the fare would be. I'm told to be wary of "taxistas" in Madrid as they can charge what they please, specially if they see you're a tourist.

Does any have a good solution for taking a taxi so early in the morning? Thanks!

It's a 30€ flat fee now. So there's no worry you'll be charged more than that.

Make sure you take an official taxi. And ask for a recept (un recibo) and check the registration number just to be sure if you are worried.

perseus:

When you enter the taxi tell the driver you will need a receipt. This assures there will be no foul play.

Thank you all for the replies.

About the 30 euro fee. Is there a surcharge for being after normal hours?

Also, is there a surcharge for luggage? I'll have about 3 pieces!

Thanks!

No, there are no extra surcharge or fees. 30€ is fixed and a flat rate between the city and barajas airport. Just tell the driver you need an official receipt just in case he tries to pull a fast one.
