Peter's Post: Barcelona airport transfer
Our travel experts answers your questions
Could you find me a company providing return transfers between Barcelona airport and our hotel and then from the port back to the hotel? We are a group of nine adults travelling in late September. — Milandré Allie
You can either join a shuttle-bus transfer or hire a private vehicle. One of the recommended firms offering transfers in Barcelona BCN Travel, charges 77 euros (R780) for nine passengers joining a shuttle-bus transfer from the airport to the hotel. The same price is applicable for the transfer from the port to the airport. That works out at less than 9 euros per transfer, which is good value. However, hiring a 13-seater minibus would only cost you 89 euros per transfer, just under 10 euros per person. Get further details on www.bcn.travel/ or phone +34 93 125 8801.
Another company offering a similar service is Barcelona Airport Transfers. I got an online quotation of 95 euros for a transfer from the airport to a city hotel for nine people. The same rate was quoted for the journey from the port to the airport in a private vehicle (www.barcelona-airport-transfers.com).
