How to get a Taxi in Granada
Taking a taxi in Granada is extremely easy. You can either hail on in the street by looking for the ‘TAXI’ sign on top to be lit up green and sticking out your arm, walk to a taxi rank or call a radio taxi company. There are 60 official taxi ranks in Granada, all marked with a blue sign with a white letter T in the middle. You can find them at most of the major landmarks, such as Triunfo, Gran Via, Plaza Nueva, Fuente de las Batallas, Granada Bus Station, Granada Train Station and the airport.
If you’d prefer to have a Granada taxi come to you, you can call one of the local radio taxi companies. This is a great option if you’re in an out of the way location, are travelling back to your hotel late at night or if the weather is bad. There are two radio taxi companies in Granada; Tele Radio Taxi Granada +34 958 280 000 and Radio Taxi Genil +34 958 132 323.
Booking your Granada Transfer in Advance
Although there are many taxis in Granada, during peak season, it can be difficult to find one. Radio taxi companies have a long hold time and taxi ranks have long queues of people. Instead of spending precious moments of your vacation waiting for a cab, why not book your Granada transfer in advance. Welcome Pickups offer advance bookings for their Granada taxi fleet, complete with English-speaking drivers, on-time pickups and competitive prices.
