For legal & licensed Alicante transfers look for the blue plates
Numerous ‘pirate taxis’ were confiscated from their drivers during a sting operation at Alicante-Elche Airport.
The vehicles were found to have no authorisation to take passengers to and from the airport. The cars were impounded and drivers denounced.
The denunciation carried a fine that had to be paid before the illicit drivers could collect their vehicles.
One of the drivers had not had an official tarjeta de transporte since 2017.
According to a leading insurance company, it is possible that if you were to have an accident in one of the many illegal taxis that operate in the area, you would not be insured for any hospital treatment that either you or a member of your family might need and payment for it would be your responsibility and yours alone.
VTC licenses allow a private car to be used in a professional capacity, and a legal car’s rear number ‘should be blue’.
