With air travel becoming very stressful with all the luggage and safety restrictions now in place, the luxury of a private transfer can certainly make your journey easier. And do not think they are expensive as you can get an online quote to see how they compare to taking a taxi.
You can pre-book a private transfer online so that when you land you will have a personal driver ready and waiting at a pre-arranged point in arrivals to take you to a car and on to your destination.
You can get a quote online and pay for the pick up (and return journey if required) in advance so there are no nasty surprises about what it costs.
We always use Shuttle Direct for our own personal private transfers and have no hesitation in recommending them to you.
Although transport connections from Barcelona are good (with both bus and train services), private transfers really do take all the strain out of travel as you can sit in an air conditioned car instead of having to walk around carrying luggage looking for the right platform or stop and then queue (in what can be intolerable heat during the summer months).
Spanish taxis are only licensed to carry a maximum of 4 passengers (including children) so if you are travelling with the family you can book a larger people carrier with a private transfer company. Also if you have young children you should know that taxis do not carry baby seats or child restraints even though private vehicles have to use them by law. For your child's safety these can be requested and fitted in advance if you go the online booking route.
