Seville - San Pablo airport is located 10 km from the city center and there are several transfer options to get there, both private and public transport.

In Seville it is possible to hire a private transfer service to get to the door of your hotel in the center without worrying about luggage, to orient you on your arrival at the airport or unforeseen events such as the delay of your flight. The private transfer service from the airport of Seville to your hotel is one of the most complete.

How it works

The next thing you will want to know is how to book this service: you can do it online well in advance. You will need to provide your flight and hotel details when you make the reservation so that you don't have to take care of anything when you arrive. If you have any other questions you can email the transportation company.

The driver will be waiting for you upon arrival to pick you up at the terminal and will drop you off at the door of your hotel (you and your companions) without interruptions or stops along the way.

It is important that, if your hotel is not in the center, you have additional or delicate luggage or require any special service, please let us know once you make your reservation.

Advantages of a private transfer

  • It doesn't matter when you arrive in Seville because the service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • You will not have to look for your professional driver; he will be waiting for you at the arrivals terminal.
  • If your flight is delayed the driver will wait for you for up to 90 minutes.
  • The vehicles are top of the range and air-conditioned
  • You do not need to take any transportation when you arrive downtown; you will be dropped off directly at your hotel.
  • You will have enough room for your luggage and the cars are adapted for folding wheelchairs or baby seats if requested.
  • It will take you only about 20 minutes to get to the city center.
  • You will be able to communicate with your professional driver in English, French, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese or Portuguese.
  • All vehicles and drivers comply with the necessary safety and hygiene measures.

Private transfer back to the airport

You can also hire this service on your return trip, i.e. to get from your hotel in the center to the airport of Seville. The price and conditions are the same and you can do it once you are in Seville or before your trip; cancellation is not a problem because it is possible to cancel the service up to 24 hours before.

Remember to provide the address of your hotel to pick you up at the door and your flight information so that they do it with enough time to be able to board without haste.

Public transport: the bus

The other option to get to the center of Seville and from there to your hotel is public transportation. It will take a little longer and will not be as comfortable, but in exchange you will save on costs. The option is the bus, since Seville has no metro or train to reach the airport.

The bus that connects the San Pablo airport with the city center belongs to the public transport network of Seville (Tussam). It is a special line (the EA) that arrives at the bus station of Plaza de Armas making several stops in central areas such as:

  • Kansas City
  • Santa Justa train station
  • Luis de Morales
  • San Bernardo
  • Prado Gardens
  • Gold Tower

The schedule is from 5:20 a.m. to 00:45 p.m. and the frequency is from 20 to 30 minutes. The trip to Plaza de Armas takes about 40 minutes and you will find the bus stop easily signposted once you arrive at the airport.

You can use this same bus to get to the airport from downtown from 4:30 to 00:00 from Plaza de Armas. The ticket costs between 4 and 6 euros and can be purchased on the bus itself.


If you arrive outside the bus schedule or you have not booked a private transfer in advance, there is a cab rank at the Seville airport that you will see signposted on your arrival. This can be a good option if you are not going to the center, but it will be more expensive than private transport: it costs between 25 and 30 euros approximately.

Uber or Cabify

Uber and Cabify services are available in Seville and you can check the price of the transfer to your hotel upon arrival and before confirming the trip. However, it is possible that the driver may not be able to pick you up at the door of the arrivals terminal since controversies with this service in the city are quite usual.

Renting a car

Finally, you can always rent a car upon arrival (a good option to move to other nearby cities or to escape to the beach one of the days of your trip). It won't cost you much to get to the center and you will be there in half an hour. Of course, if you stay in a central area make sure that the hotel has parking included, otherwise it will be difficult to park in the capital.

Ana's Traveller Tip

It is important to know that cabs in Seville have a fixed rate for airport transfers and it is not legal to charge an additional cost for luggage.

This is the Seville airport

It is very easy to find your way around Seville airport. There is only one terminal consisting of two floors: the first floor is the arrivals terminal and the upper floor is the departures terminal. In total there are 35 check-in counters and 11 boarding gates.

Once you pass through the security check, you will have different stores and restaurants at your disposal before boarding the plane. The price you will pay in the restaurants and food places, however, is not going to be cheap compared to the prices you will find in the city.

Other services available at Seville San Pablo airport are the VIP lounge, the free WIFI or the parking next to the entrance gate. What you will not find, and it is good that you keep in mind, are lockers to store luggage, so if you make a stopover at the airport, go out for a walk around the city can be somewhat cumbersome.

When to travel to Seville

Seville has two occasions when the traveler's experience changes compared to any other time of the year: the April Fair and Holy Week. On both dates the city is transformed; accommodations are sold out and prices get more expensive, but the experience of visiting Seville on these dates is unlike any other.

More important, however, than when to travel to Seville is when not to: avoiding summer (which in the Andalusian city includes May and September) is essential. In few places in Spain temperatures are as high as here and I assure you that sightseeing in these conditions is a mission only for heroes.

How to get around Seville

Although Seville has a subway line, this is only operational to communicate the center, mainly, with the area of Aljarafe and Triana. The transport par excellence is the bus; it has dozens of lines that cover the whole city and the prices are accessible. Of course, delays are common. As for walking through the center of Seville, it is also an option especially during the winter.

Where to stay in Seville

In the neighborhoods of Triana, Nervion or Macarena you will find more affordable accommodations in terms of price than what you will see in the historic center. In any case, I recommend booking well in advance (months in advance if your visit coincides with the April Fair or Easter). If you are planning to stay in the outskirts of the city, I advise you to discard it because of the hassle of getting to the center on the city buses.

What to eat in Seville

Undoubtedly the food is one of the great merits of this city. The well-known tapas are good in almost any bar (beware, they are not complimentary with the drink as in other Andalusian cities) and I recommend you try as many as possible. The prices are very affordable compared to the rest of Spain except in tourist areas where you can get more than one unpleasant surprise (avoid them).

What to bring in your suitcase

When preparing your luggage to travel to Seville you can not avoid a hat, cool clothes, sunscreen and a bottle of water every time you go out. Forgetting any of these items can bring unpleasant consequences for the inexperienced traveler.
