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.

    Six people is more than one taxi. "Reasonable" is in the eye of the beholder. May 10 at 18:50

    What research have you done up to now?

    Bear in mind this is roughly an hour's trip. Is there nothing into Reus (which is on the outskirts of Salou)?

  • 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.


Hire a private minivan.

It will have space for the 6 of you and all your luggage.
