Taxis in Seville Overview

Taxis in Seville are operated by licensed drivers and regulated by the local government. They are easily identifiable by their white colour and rooftop taxi sign and you can find taxi ranks throughout Seville.

Seville’s taxis use a metered fare system, regulated by the local authorities. The meter starts running when you board the taxi.

Best Places to Get a Taxi in Seville

In Seville city centre, you can easily find taxis at designated taxi stands (paradas de taxis in Spanish) located at strategic points such as popular squares, transportation hubs, and major attractions. Some recommended places to find taxis in the city centre include:

Plaza NuevaMain square in the city centre with a taxi stand.
Puerta de JerezNear the historic centre and Royal Alcázar, usually with available taxis.
Santa Justa Train StationMain Seville train station with a designated taxi rank.
Prado de San SebastiánMain Seville bus station, often with taxis available.

Taxi Apps in Seville

There are also taxi apps in Seville, where you can order a taxi from your phone.

Whilst Uber does operate in Seville, it’s one of their poorer city services, with a lack of drives often being a common problem, causing long waits.

My personal recommendation is to use Cabify, which works in the exact same way as Uber and allows you to book and pay for taxis on your phone app.

The best thing about using an app whilst in Seville is that you can guarantee a fixed price for the journey, and pay for the journey on your phone – which can be useful when travelling abroad and ensures no issues with card payments.

Another app service in Seville is FreeNow which is a fairly new service being rolled out across the whole of Spain, but is growing very fast. If you are not rushed for time it may be worth comparing prices across the apps or looking for new user discounts.

Seville Airport is well-connected by taxi services. The journey from the city centre to the airport typically takes around 20-25 minutes, and fares range from 25 to 40 euros.

There is a taxi-rank outside the airport, and you can get a taxi to the airport from various ranks in the city centre. There is a fixed rate (which varies) to the airport which is normally around 35 euros.

It can be cheaper to book a private transfer, which normally comes to around 25 euros (guarantees no queuing at the airport as well).

Do taxis in Seville take credit cards?
