Madrid, prebook taxi from airport?

Jump to last reply

Arriving by Iberia from Rome around 7 PM. Need to get to the hotel fairly quickly so we can walk to our dinner reservation at 9:30 from the hotel. In the past, I've always taken public transport into or out of Madrid. The hotel (Westin Palace) will of course book us a car at 110 euro, but I'd prefer not to. I've read the taxi price should be anywhere from 25 to 45 euros, but my experience with taxis in Madrid has not been good and I guess I have a bit of distrust for most taxi drivers. Of course, I DO know not to take a rogue taxi from the airport, but use the regular queue. Or is there a good car service that is reasonable that we can pre-book? Or does that often involve waiting even longer after arrival to call them and then wait?
