The easiest way to get from Barcelona Airport to the city center is via taxi, Aerobus, or the RENFE train. Taxis are considered to be a cheap, safe, and convenient form of travel, particularly in larger groups, and are widely available outside the main terminals. The taxi journey will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes and will cost about €30.00, not including special surcharges such as late night pick-ups. A cheaper alternative is the Aerobus express bus service, found outside Terminals 1 and 2, which will take you from the airport to either Plaça Espanya or Plaça de Catalunya at the city center. Bus tickets, which can be purchased on the bus or at ticket machines in the airport, typically cost €5.90 one-way and €10.20 for a return trip which must be used within 15 days. If you are travelling at night, you can take the NitBus N17 which operates from 11.55 pm and 4.45 am, costing just €2.15 for a one-way trip. Finally, the RENFE train will take you 25 minutes to reach the city center from Aeropuerto station, located just a short shuttle bus ride away from Terminal 1. The RENFE train is connected to the Barcelona metro at Barcelona Sants, Passeig de Gràcia, or Clot Stations. The metro does not have a station at the airport. Travellers can consider purchasing a ‘Barcelona Card’, which gives the holder unlimited trips on public transport in Zone 1, where the main city center and major tourist attractions are located.

Barcelona Cards are available as a 2-5 day pass and prices depend on the card duration and the age of the holder. For example, a 2-day adult pass will cost €20, while a 5-day adult pass will cost €60.
