Are taxis safe in Barcelona?

Yes, taxis are safe in Barcelona, but the service is not the best: few taxi drivers speak fluent English, they may not accept credit card and in some cases the card may not be the cleanest.

Also, prices vary depending on the time you hail them and you may be charged for big suitcases. If you want to travel with peace of mind, there are some black car services with all-inclusive prices like Taxi2Airport or Blacklane.

Do taxis in Barcelona take credit cards?

Most of the taxis already accept both debit and credit cards, but it is always better asking before getting in the cab as sometimes the payment terminal will not work. If you want to learn some useful Spanish words, try with “aceptas tarjeta?”, which translates to “do you accept card?”.

Some cabs in Barcelona will not accept credit cards for short rides, even if they have to by the local regulation. If you don't want to take the risk, book a limo for your transfers in Barcelona.

Does Uber operate in Barcelona?

No, Uber stopped its operations in Barcelona on February 1st, 2019 due to a local law requiring customers to book at least 15 minutes in advance.

Barcelona and Valencia have been the two cities siding by the cab industry to fight ride-hailing. Uber stopped its service in both cities due to a law passed requiring to book any ride at least 15 minutes in advance. Cabify, the other ride-hailing company operating in Barcelona also pulled out from the Catalan capital, just to re-launch on March 6th.
