Is Uber in Spain?
Yes, Uber is in Spain and yes, it does work better than Uber in Italy. That said, Uber is not in every city in Spain. Not due to regulations but simply due to demand. If there is no demand there is no money. If there is no money there are no drivers.
Which cities does Uber operate it in Spain?
I won’t go through them all, but it operates consistently in Madrid but not completely in Barcelona.
In Barcelona it collaborates with a public use car-hire service that allows you to pick up a vehicle and drop it off in another location. We don’t necessarily recommend this as parking can be tricky.
If you want to know other cities that Uber operates in, open the app and search for the city in your “location”. Then pick a monument in that city to go to. When you hit search, the app will make it clear what options are available.
Tours in Spain
A great way to get your bearings for Spain is to join a local guide. They can offer in-person tips and tricks for getting around. I especially recommend food tours and walking tours and wouldn’t you know… we are a tour operator!
