Learn some common phrases in Spanish to help you navigate your time in Granada. This will be especially helpful in relation to taxis.
Not all taxi drivers speak English and their companies use a semi-automated system: you speak to an operator to say where you are, you then listen to music while the operator contacts taxis near you, and finally, you will hear a fast, recorded message either saying that “Taxi number xxx is on its way” or that “No taxis are available at the moment. Please try again in 5 minutes”. If you don’t speak Spanish, it is sometimes difficult to understand what they have said so understanding some key phrases beforehand is a good idea.
Never underestimate the importance of communicating accurately when it comes to travel!
