Barcelona / How to Get from Barcelona El Prat Airport to the Barcelona Luxury Penthouse

Limousine Service

You can book a limousine online and have the driver wait for you on arrival. The luxury limousine will take you directly to the door of the apartment building. There are several companies operating in Barcelona – Barcelona Limousine Service; Diagonal Mar Limousines; Blai Limousines – Carey Barcelona; A T Catalunya and Limousine Miramar to name but a few. Rates are approximately 70€ to 100€ depending on the car you want and the amount of passengers. Travel time about 25 minutes.

Private Transfer

Get a private car and driver to pick you up and take you directly to your luxury penthouse. Cars can take up to three people and cost about 70€ per car with one piece of luggage per passenger. Your driver meets you in arrivals with a sign showing your name. A shared door-to-door service is also available in small mini vans (22€). These details are from a company called AeroCITY but there are other similar services available from other companies.

Taxi

Cost of a taxi from the airport is 30€ - 45€ this can vary according to time of day, traffic and luggage plus a 5-10 % tip. Some of the local companies are Radio Taxi, Servitaxi, Taxi Barcelona and Aerotaxi Barcelona. There is no need to book in advance as there are a lot of taxis that wait outside each of the terminals. There is a surcharge for additional luggage (1€) and night travel. Traveling from T1 is about 5€ more expensive than from T2 as it is a little further from the city. The rates are displayed in the taxi cab. The minimum charge from the airport is 20€ plus an additional charge for each km, but a meter is activated and you'll pay what it shows plus any surcharges. Travel time about 25 minutes.

Private Car

Take the C-31 which heads towards Barcelona's main roads, turn off at the 196B exit to B10 in the direction of the port. Take exit 24 to Diagonal Mar, turn left to Carrer Joseph Pla and turn left again into Passeig Garcia i Faria. After 350 meters you'll have reached your home from home luxury penthouse. The journey should take you about 25/30 minutes.

Rental Car

In the Barcelona Airport you can find car rental companies including Alamo, Avis, Hertz and Budget Car Rental. To rent a car in Spain you need to be over 21, present a passport, valid driver's license and insurance needs to be arranged. Note that a 15% tax on car rental is usually not added to the quoted price.

Aerobus

If you choose to take the Aerobus then travel time is about 35 minutes to Placa Catalunya. From there you need to take the Green Line metro train to Passeig de Gracia then change to the Yellow Line to Selva Del Mar. From the Selva Del Mar metro stop it is about a 10 minute walk to the luxury penthouse.

There are two Aerobus lines: A1 travels FROM the airport (Terminal T1) and A2 travels TO the airport (terminal T2C and T2B). The buses leave every 5 minutes every day.

Tickets may be purchased from staff at the bus stop by cash only; at the automatic sales machines by credit card or by cash only from the bus driver. Cost is  5.9€ one way, 10.2€ return plus 2€ for a single ride on the metro to reach the apartment building so in total this method of traveling from the airport to apartment costs 7.9€ one way or 14.2€ return.

Aerobus tickets are valid for up to an hour after purchase. For return tickets the outgoing ride is valid for up to an hour after purchase and return ride within 9 days of purchase. The tickets cannot be booked in advance. The integrated transport ticket used on all forms of transport within Barcelona is NOT valid for the Aerobus.

Train

The 26 minute journey by train costs 3.8€ plus metro fare for the final part of the journey to the luxury penthouse. Alternatively the journey is included in the Barcelona Travel Card and the T10 Travel Card unlike the Aerobus.

The RENFE trains leave every half hour and will bring you to the Passeig de Gracia station.  From there switch to the Yellow Line metro route and travel to Selva Del Mar metro stop. From there it is a short 10 minute walk.

The trains leave the airport from terminal T2B which is sign posted (RENFE). If you're arriving (or departing) from terminal T1 you'll have to take a shuttle bus to T2B.

Trains FROM the airport to the city run from 05:42 to 23:38 and trains FROM Passeig de Gracia run from 05:08 to 23:07.

If you have ordered a BTC online you can pick it up from the airport at the tourist offices in T1 and T2B, the T10 Travel Card can be bought at kiosks. Train tickets can be bought from vending machines at the stations at both ends of the route. Ticket machines accept cash or credit cards.

Public TMB Buses

This method is not recommended as it takes longer (as there are more stops), it reaches Placa Espanya instead of Placa de Catalunya, there is less luggage space and it is less regular. However if you are on a tight budget it is the cheapest way to travel from the airport to the apartment as you can use the Barcelona Transport Card all the way, both on the bus and the metro connection. #46 bus travels during the day and N17 Airport Night Bus runs at night (21:55 – 04:45).
