Drivers will often apply surcharges for luggage or the time of day if outside normal business hours (this is normal) and you will probably also be asked if you want to take the ‘autovia‘ – a toll road which is much quicker, but will add around €12.00 extra to your fare, as you will be expected to cover the taxis’ costs both ways.
