How much would a taxi cost from La Caruna airport to Ferrol at around 11 pm on a Tuesday night?
Thanks
Jon

The conventional wisdom is that a taxi ride is about 1 euro per kilometer. However, I'm not sure if there might be a surcharge for a long one-way trip (the old town of Ferrol is about 50 km from LCG).

I have contacted a local taxi company there in the past to ask a question about booking a taxi, and their website indicates they have taxi drivers who speak English. They take take credit cards and even have an app. You could send them an email to inquire:

I hope this is helpful! Buen camino to you!

Too many and too often!
The A Coruna airport website publishes local taxi rates but calculating a fare is not very straightforward. A web taxi booking service called suntransfers.com offers a quote of 76 euro.

The 1 euro per kilometre does not work for night trips or weekends - a different more expensive rate applies. If travelling a long distance, try to get a quote for the whole distance, rather than using mileage.

FWIW...I took a taxi from A Coruna bus station to Ferrol in September (buses were sold out and it was a Sunday with a limited schedule) and it cost 70 Euro. I kindly refer to that as my personal idiot tax for not purchasing a bus ticket ahead of time. Hope that helps!

then it will be digging deep into my pocket for taxi money.
