Taxi Capacity

The great majority of official taxi cabs in Barcelona are licensed to carry a maximum of 4 passengers. This includes the majority of the van taxis. According to the Institut Metropolita del Taxi around 10% of van taxis have a special license to carry up to 6 passengers. If you require one of these taxis you should ask the taxi attendant at the airport taxi rank to find you one. You could have some waiting time since these types of taxi are not as readily available.

If you are in the city centre and you want a taxi cab for up to 6 passengers then it is recommended that you call an official taxi company and specifically request for one. Hailing down a van taxi in the city centre in the hope they have a 6 passenger license is not a good idea because these types of taxi are not common.

Note that for van taxis there is an additional supplement of €2.10 for each person above 4 passengers.
