Is there a taxi shortage at LPA Gran Canaria Airport?

Sunday, December 3rd, 2023

There has been a lot of coverage on social media over the last few days about the apparent shortage of taxi cars at LPA. Sometime when a number of flights arrive consecutively there can be a temporary shortage due to the volume of passengers looking to hire a taxi. However this has been exaggerated on social media outlets that officials say “do not give a clear picture”.

A number of videos have been circulating showing long queues at the taxi ranks! Often it is advisable to pre-book an airport taxi transfer with a popular, reliable company like Solhop. The advantage with this method is a person arrives at Gran Canaria Airport knowing full well a driver will be waiting for them in the Arrivals hall. This avoids any queuing at the taxi ranks. Also it ensures you lock in the price even before you get to the airport.

Another option that is becoming more popular is to make your own way to your accommodation by hiring a car at the airport. Car hire gives you the freedom to come and go whenever you want. Again competitive rates can be found at the airport. Pre-booking your car hire in advance allows you to secure the best possible rate, and the sooner you book often the cheaper the price will be for your car hire.
