Looking for a taxi in Madrid? You don’t have to look far – there are loads of them. Official taxis are white and, if it has its green light switched on, you know it’s available.
Just stick out your hand and wave. The meter will show the price and there should be no extra charge for luggage. But the price of the taxi will depend on the area, day and where you were picked up. Don’t trust drivers who offer you a fixed price as this is actually illegal. And, as with taxis in most big cities, beware of being ripped-off.
