How to get from Seville Airport to the city centre by taxi
The most comfortable method to journey to the city from the airport is by taxi, especially if you have luggage. The Seville airport taxi journey into the city will take approximately 15-20 minutes dependent on traffic. Most taxis in Spain are trustworthy, especially when taken at designated taxi ranks, and are usually white with a yellow stripe. They will usually have an illuminated sign (green means free), and the licence displayed in the taxi. Drivers usually are very knowledgeable of the area, but if communication is a worry, you can always approach an information desk of the taxi company located in the airport. Be aware that with large flight arrivals there could be a wait to catch a taxi from the rank.

Taxis are ideal for a quick journey into the city and assured arrival at your destination while avoiding the issue of getting luggage on and off public transport. Taxis are reasonably priced and operate 24/7.
The only problems that regularly occur with taxis in Seville are those taxis which are operating independently. To avoid a scam, ensure that you are only taking taxis that display a licence, have a meter or are located at official taxi ranks.
Do not accept rides from people casually offering at the airports. These drivers target tourists and overcharge them for an easy scam.
Make sure you have enough cash - not all taxis accept cards.
Drivers in Spain are well trained in the area, yet it could be helpful to have a picture of your hotel and address to save any language barriers from being an issue.
Luggage is charged by drivers at 0.44c per bag.
Seville Airport (SVQ) is also named San Pablo airport by locals.

The price of the bus from the airport is far less than that of a taxi, however it is notably less convenient. The journey is much longer as the bus has multiple stops on the way. The bus may also be crowded at peak flight arrival times and can be difficult if you have multiple bags with you.
