All terminals have clearly signed taxi ranks outside the arrivals area. Official taxis are white with a red stripe and have the Madrid City Council coat-of-arms on their doors.

To take a taxi you must go to the appropriate taxi rank. Avoid people who offer taxi services inside the terminals. Make sure that the taxi driver starts the meter at the beginning of the journey (minimum fare). Ask for a receipt in the event of a complaint.

Stops at the airport


Flat rate airport fare (fare 4)

The journey costs €30 for trips between the airport and Calle 30. No supplements can be added to this flat rate fare, which is also not eligible for the maximum rate for services booked online or by phone, provided the passenger is present at the meeting point at the agreed time.

Minimum fare to the airport (fare 3)

If the journey is less than 10km in distance and has not been booked online, the minimum taxi fare will be 20 euros. If it is more than 10km in distance (or the equivalent initial time), the price will increase in line with the corresponding fare.
