Girona taxi tips

  1. Many Girona taxi drivers don’t speak English, so it can help to have your destination’s address on hand in Catalan or Spanish.
  2. Once you get in the taxi, check that the taximeter is working and set to the base fare of €2.60.
  3. Most taxi drivers in Girona accept card and cash payments, but it’s best to always carry a few euros in cash in case the card machine is out of service.
  4. If you plan to pay in cash, it’s best to carry smaller notes in case your driver does not have (or claims not to have) change.
  5. Tipping your driver isn’t required in Girona but it’s well-received if you wish to include a tip for good service.

Wheelchair-accessible taxi in Girona

Girona is a wheelchair-friendly city and you should be able to move around safely and comfortably during your trip. Most regular taxis in Girona that you’ll find on the street can fit a foldable wheelchair in the boot of the vehicle but they’re rarely fully accessible. To secure reliable and safe transportation for a wheelchair user, you can pre-book your rides with companies offering fully accessible vehicles equipped with ramps. Two reputable options are GiTaxi available at +34 (9) 7222 2323 and Girona Taxi at +34 (6) 4985 2454. Note that customer support may not be available in English so it’s best to have someone speaking Catalan or Spanish make the necessary arrangements.
