Hailing a taxi in Barcelona is safe, even if they may not accept your credit card, but here are two good alternatives for avoiding the trouble:
- Cabify: the only ride-hailing company currently operating in Barcelona after Uber pulled out in early 2019. Their service it’s great as drivers are well-dressed and drive clean sedans, usually have free water and wifi and the app is very easy to use. If you wanna give it a go, use the code “POLG1” on your first ride.
- Free Now, formerly MyTaxi. If you really like cabs and don’t want to give directions to your driver nor wonder if you will be able to pay with your card, this is your app.
If you are tired of cabs and want a superior experience, chauffeured black cars maybe for you:
