WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE BARCELONA
BARCELONA AIRPORT TRANSFERS & CRUISE PORT TRANSFERS
It is a surprise to many arriving at El Prat International Airport in Barcelona to find there are no wheelchair friendly taxis available for public hire. Therefore it is advisable to reserve your wheelchair transportation services prior to your trip. Especially in the high season as there is a high demand for adapted vehicles.
Upon arrival our driver will meet you in the airport Arrivals Hall and will have a welcome card with your name on it. From there he will assist you to your private adapted taxi. In case your flight is late we alter the pickup time accordingly, so you can be assured that whatever the time of arrival, your service is guaranteed.
All our wheelchair accessible taxi cabs have either a rear ramp or a hydraulic lift. Additionally we have the availability over a variety of larger taxis for disabled people, or wheelchair vans and buses to accommodate your group adapted transfer requirements with 4+ wheelchair users.
For guests arriving at Girona Airport or Reus Airport and on their way to Barcelona, we also advise booking your handicap accessible transportation services before touch-down.
