On the 9th place we have another European capital, Madrid, where the taxi business is blooming.
Due to the fact that the city’s airport is one of the busiest in the country, the taxi fares here a little higher and a drive from the airport could set you back a lot of cash.
Depending on the route and the hour you arrive at the airport you could easily pay hundreds of dollars on a taxi fare.
Taking in consideration that the Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport is the largest in the country could easily make you take out of your pocket a big sum just to go somewhere close to the airport.
The $3,59/km fare is making the city’s cab industry to be an important income generator, taking large sums of money for a trip to any corner of the city, for example.
