Don’t waste a second of precious holiday time on your way to Barcelona and its neighbouring resorts. Book an airport transfer to bypass the queues and go straight to the beach.

The coastline here dazzles with shallow sandy coves, quiet fishing villages, and lively party towns. Inland, you’ll find hillside villages where time has stood still, nature reserves, medieval castles, and awesome mountain scenery.

Most of it is well connected by public transport to Barcelona El Prat Airport, the gateway to Catalonia, but you can’t beat a pre-booked airport transfer when it comes to convenience.

It might not be the cheapest option, but a private airport transfer to Barcelona or beyond is by far the best way to kick off your relaxing holiday. Pre-book a private transfer and go from airplane to accommodation with just passport control and baggage reclaim to contend with on the way. Opt for a private minibus or bus if you’re travelling as part of a group to side-step the stresses and strains of getting everyone into taxis or on the same train.

If cost is a factor, a shared bus or shuttle is a great compromise of time, convenience and cost. Compare the airport transfer companies on TravelSupermarket to find discounts and some of the cheapest prices going.

Depending on the traffic and which terminal you arrive at, a private taxi into Barcelona can take as little as 20 minutes – and there are no parking hassles or pricing haggles to deal with.

If you’re heading north of Barcelona to the resorts of Costa Brava, you’ll save loads of time with an airport transfer. How does a little more than one hour by private transfer to Lloret de Mar sound, compared with more than two hours – plus head-scratching and waiting time – by public bus?

It’s the same story for holidaymakers bound for Costa Dorada, south of Barcelona. A private airport transfer to family-friendly Salou or lively Cambrils can easily knock more than half an hour off the time it takes to get there by public bus. And who wouldn’t rather swap time spent figuring out the bus and train timetables in the airport terminal for more time in the clubs, bars and sparkling water of Sitges?
