Where to get a taxi at Alicante Airport?

The Alicante Airport taxi ranks are located on the ground floor outside the Arrivals terminal and the second floor opposite the departures entrance.

However, if you book your Alicante Airport transfer in advance with us – there’s no need to search for an empty taxi in the ranks.

Useful tips for getting an Alicante Airport taxi

  1. Standard Alicante Airport taxis do not calculate fares using a taximeter, instead, they offer pre-determined fares based on the final destination.
  2. Local Alicante Airport taxis will add surcharges to your final fare including an airport surcharge of €4.25 and the cost of tolls.
  3. Double-check the fixed fare with the driver before starting your ride.
  4. Never accept rides from unlicensed drivers offering their services in the main terminal.
  5. Always ask for the receipt in case you need to file a complaint or claim a lost item.
  6. Alicante Airport taxi waiting times can be especially long during peak season (June-August) and school holidays. We recommend booking an airport taxi in advance for a speedy and seamless arrival all year round.
  7. Tipping is not expected in Alicante, however, you can round up the fare if you especially enjoyed the service.
  8. Alicante Airport taxi drivers typically accept credit card payments, but not always. To avoid any hiccups such as the POS machine not working, make sure to have enough cash in the local currency (€), including small change.
  9. Local Alicante Airport taxi drivers may not speak English fluently, while transfer services offer guaranteed English-speaking taxi rides.
  10. If you think you have been scammed or overcharged, write down the taxi driver’s name, ID number and the number of your taxi. You can then contact the taxi company or the foreign tourist police to file a complaint.
  11. Using Google Maps to check your driver is taking the right route is a good way to avoid being overcharged.
  12. Pre-booking an airport taxi guarantees you a meet and greet, no waiting times, advance payments, reliable English-speaking drivers, and 24/7 customer support.

How do I get from Alicante Airport to a hotel?

After landing at Alicante International Airport, finding your way to the hotels in central Alicante might pose some difficulties, especially when relying on public transport, as you will probably have to walk or take a taxi from the station to your hotel’s doorstep. Plus, navigating your way around the bustling centre via bus or rail services can be tricky, and more so if you’re carrying luggage, travelling with family, or don’t know any Spanish.

That’s why booking an Alicante Airport taxi, such as a personalised door-to-door service like Welcome Pickups, is the most convenient option.
