Taxis are an easy and relatively inexpensive way of getting around.

Taxis in Spain are not always metered and if they aren’t, the taxi driver will carry a booklet with the official rates which has been authorised by the local Town Hall. Taxis in Nerja are now metered (since 2015).

Because there are often various supplements, such as extra baggage, night service etc, it is generally prudent to clarify the price in advance as unscrupulous taxi drivers have been known to overcharge unsuspecting tourists. You can pre book Malaga airport transfers with up to 4 large cases included at a fixed price – less than 70 euros (or 55 pounds).

Official rates should be displayed at airports and inside any licensed taxi. There are taxi ranks in most city centres and it is also possible to hail a taxi in the street.

A green ‘libre’ (free) notice on the windscreen or a green light on the car roof at night indicates a taxi which is available for hire. Most bars and restaurants will call a taxi for you should you so desire.

The main taxi rank is located in Plaza de la Ermita, calle San Miguel.

During the evenings, from around 20:00, the taxis migrate to avenida Castilla Perez, outside the pharmacy about halfway down the street.
