Book transport tickets in advance

Want to save money and time during your stay in Barcelona?

  • We recommend choosing and buying your transport tickets in advance!


The Aerobus is a special bus service which runs between Barcelona airport and the city centre. Quick, practical and affordable, it offers excellent value for money.

The tour bus is an excellent way of getting around Barcelona whilst discovering some of the city’s most iconic sights in a short space of time.
Once you have your ticket, you’ll be able to get on and off the bus as many times as you like.

Valid for a period of 3 or 5 days, then Barcelona Card offers free access to all public transport and some museums. You’ll also get up to 20% off at various cultural institutions, restaurants, shops and shows in the city.

Staying in Barcelona for 48 hours, tops? The Barcelona Card Express gives the same advantages as the Barcelona Card, but for a shorter period.

Hola BCN: These individual transport tickets give unlimited access to public transport for a period of 2, 3, 4 or 5 days.

The Montjuïc cable car gets you from the base to the top of the hill. It’s not the cheapest way of getting to Montjuïc, but you’ll enjoy the trip, and there are some excellent photo opportunities!
