Welcome back to Villa Gran Canaria’s blog! Now, that the summer is ending almost everywhere but here, we have been thinking about those long walks along the beach. They are very relaxing, right? Well, life here is not always that relaxed. When you have to move fast around the island, you cannot always go walking.
That is why today we want to talk about one of the most comfortable means of transport — Gran Canaria’s taxis. Let us tell you why!
But first, we would like to remind you that if you are interested in discovering everything related with this terribly beautiful island, you must take a look at our blog. You will find many interesting posts, for instance:
Now, we are going to talk about taxi prices in Gran Canaria. Nevertheless, you must remember that this is an estimated fare. The actual fare might be different depending on the time of the day, the possible tolls, works and available routes, different car companies and so on.
We could say that there are two different types of fares depending on different factors. For example, we have to bear in mind if it is a weekday or not, if the ride is made during the daytime or during the night time, and so on.
€ 3.15 (Opening times Minimum charge)
€ 1.10 (Price/km)
€ 15.05 (Waiting time)
€ 3.45 (Opening times Minimum charge)
€ 1.26 (Price/km)
€ 15.05 (Waiting time)
There are some different supplements for taxi fares in Gran Canaria:
All Gran Canaria taxi services contracted from the airport are intercity. The fare to apply for one-way trips is number 3. For round trips, it is number 2.
€ 0.69 per kilometer
€ 3.15 minimum charge
€ 1, 70 airport / port additional charge
€ 0.78 per kilometer
€ 3.45 minimum charge
€ 1.70 airport / port additional charge
These are the approximate prices for a taxi up to 4 people with taxi meter coming from or going to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Airport (LPA). Additional charges are not included in these fares.
|– LPA Airport to Maspalomas||€ 43|
|– LPA Airport to Puerto de Mogan||€ 65|
|– LPA Airport to Puerto Rico||€ 61|
|– LPA Airport to Parador Cruz de Tejeda||€ 51|
|– LPA Airport to Pozo Izquierdo||€ 24|
|– LPA Airport to Sonneland||€ 42|
|– LPA Airport to Vecindario||€ 22|
The taxi is probably the best option if you do not know how to move around Gran Canaria and you don’t feel like searching where does every bus line lead. However, you must bear in mind that it is probably the most expensive transport option if you travel on your own.
Nevertheless, if you go in a group of 3 or 4 people, it may be even cheaper than the bus.
In general, urban taxis are not very expensive. However, if you want to go from Las Palmas to Maspalomas, it can easily cost around € 70 just one way. The revolutionary transport services, as Uber or Cabify, have not reached the island of Gran Canaria yet.
