I’m going to Salou in July, flying into Barcelona. What are my options for getting to Salou from the airport, and how can I decide among them? Are taxis at the airport reasonable or do I need to prebook? We'll be six people so may not fit in one taxi.
- Taxi might be an option, however be sure to get a taxi-van: regular taxis can carry no more than 4 passengers, probably 3 because many drivers might refuse to allow using the front seat as for COVID
- Salou used to have a railway station, but the line was closed early 2020 when it was diverted inland. There is a station near Port Aventura that might or might not be convenient to you, but has poor service. Another option would be Vila-seca station, on the main line between Tarragona and Reus. For these, you will need to change on Barcelona Sants railway station.
- Buses on the area are run by Plana, which is known to offer a poor service. Not sure if there's any direct route from Barcelona airport.
This is the bus schedule and it's current: https://empresaplana.cat/uploads/boxes-lineas-configuration/horario-temporada-alta-del-01052022-al-01112022-2.pdf I am a little bit unsure what the problem is, really.
