When visiting or living in Barcelona with babies and young kids, you want to make sure to keep your little ones safe as well as not fall foul of the law.
In fact it is obligatory for kids and babies to travel in car seats when traveling by car.
Upon arrival at the El Prat Airport you will not find any taxis that have car seats. If you use a service like Cabify they will outright refuse to carry you as they don’t want to break the law and risk getting their driving license suspended.
Your only other alternative is to use the normal taxis, but again they won’t have any car seats. This means that you will be putting your little one in danger unnecessarily. You never know when disaster might strike, and you don’t want to be the one responsible because you didn’t plan ahead for something this simple.
Thankfully, I’ve found the perfect solution for all our movements within Barcelona and to and from the airport. The answer is to use a service called Blacklane. It’s a kind of premium taxi service whereby you can use their mobile application to order a taxi in advance with set pick up and drop off points.
Pries are in accordance with the service offered and the premium cars they use. The best thing is that I can put my mind at rest that they will provide a quality car seat that is in line with regulations and is clean and ready for my son to travel in safely.
