Taxis in Madrid are white and are distinguished with a diagonal red band on the front doors. A green light on top of the taxi indicates if it is available. The taxi should always charge by the taxi-meter that runs according to distance covered, the urban area, the day of the week (higher fares on holidays), and the pickup point (higher fares for pickups in bus stations, train stations and airport). Passengers are never required to pay additional fares for luggage if there is enough space in the boot. Additional fares are shown on information leaflets on the back windows of the taxi.


Car Rental

Car rental is not recommended to get around Madrid due the traffic. Parking in Madrid is expensive and always difficult. A large part of the tourist area is not accessible by car.
