Denia Taxi Service

The secret to getting a reliable taxi service is to pre-book. If you know when and where you’ll need a taxi, it’s advisable to book in advance.

This can help ensure availability, especially during peak travel times or busy periods (festivals, or during tourist season). While most of the companies advertise that they operate 24 hours a day, you will find that as nighttime falls, there are fewer taxis available.

If you don’t pre-book, then be prepared for long wait times.

Also, keep in mind that most of the taxi drivers are Spanish and so may have limited English, which can make communication difficult for non-Spanish-speaking passengers. It’s helpful to have your destination address written down to show the driver or you could use a translation app on your smartphone.

In our experience, the taxi drivers are professional, provide a safe, reliable service and the majority of journeys are conducted without any problems.

Taxi Ranks

There are designated taxi stands (with yellow painted lines on the road with the word TAXI) where you can often find taxis waiting for fares. If there are none, there should be a sign with local taxi numbers. By calling one of these numbers and telling them what street you are on, they will send a taxi for you.

Airport Transfers

If you require a transfer to Alicante airport or Valencia airport, it’s definitely wise to pre-book beforehand and agree to a fixed price with the taxi firm.

Several firms will provide luxury cars to allow you to travel in comfort with water/refreshments to enjoy. If you need a larger minivan-type vehicle to transport more luggage, make sure you request this at the time of booking.

In our experience, the cost of an airport transfer from Denia to Alicante airport is upwards of 100 euros – with quotes from 115 to 140 euros. Some specialist transfer companies may offer deals, we have seen some on Facebook at 95 euros.

Payment Methods

Most taxis will use a meter to determine the cost of your journey, though some will provide a fixed price fare if you ask them. So before your journey begins, it’s wise to clarify the fare with the driver. Either agree on a fixed price or ensure the meter is used accurately throughout the hire. This helps avoid any disputes regarding the cost when you get to the destination.

Licensed taxis normally have a fare card displayed in the car/minivan which will show the costs at different times of the year and during different days/times of the week (see image below). This is the rates the fare will be based on.

All of the taxis we have ever used have accepted cash (Euros). Nowadays, many of drivers also accept payment by credit or debit card, as they have card payment machines in their cars.

There is no legal requirement to offer a tip, though they will be super grateful if you do leave one – no matter how little or large it may be.

Ways To Book

There are various ways to get a taxi in Denia, including:

1. Calling a taxi company directly: Most taxi companies speak some English, though if you are not fluent in Spanish, you might struggle to understand them. The phone numbers for companies listed on this page should be able to help in English.

2. Online Booking: Many taxi companies in Denia have their own websites with an online form where you can book a taxi. Simply enter your pickup location, destination, and preferred date/time, and submit your booking request. They should respond to confirm the booking.

3. WhatsApp: This has been a godsend for us. When your Spanish is not great, sending a WhatsApp message to the taxi telephone number detailing the pickup location, destination, number of passengers and preferred collection time allows the driver to translate into Spanish and to respond. It then enables you to translate back to English.

Regardless of the booking method, it’s important to ensure that you use authorized and licensed taxi services to ensure your safety.

Problems With Denia Taxis

Having used many different taxis over the years of visiting and living in Denia, there are a few things we have experienced. Some of which has resulted in us staying over at friends, as we were unable to get home. We share these so you don’t have to be in the same position.

1. As the night rolls on and later into the evening it gets, the likelihood of getting a taxi reduces. Most of the taxi ranks will be empty and calling one of the taxi telephone numbers is likely not to be answered, or you will be told they have “finished for the night”.

2. If you are eating late at night in a restaurant, don’t expect asking the restaurant to call a taxi to have any more success. Several times the restaurant has called for a taxi, only for the taxi to never turn up.

3. The further out of Denia your destination is, for some reason, taxi drivers don’t want to travel. When we stayed in La Sella and Monte Pego, we asked drivers to take us from the centre of Denia back to our villa, but they have not wanted to do the trip. We got the impression it was too far for them and they only wanted to do quick local trips.

4. Breakdown in language (this was our fault). On one occasion we asked the driver in our best broken Spanish to take us to Denia Marina, expecting to be taken to Denia Port where the ferries depart to the Balearic Islands. We were dropped off at Marina de Denia (the other marina), meaning we had to walk back along to Marina El Portet de Denia.
