Hi can anyone tell me where to get a taxi in La Mata? Do we need to phone to book one and if so, does anyone have a phone number please? Do they come from Torrevieja? We are hoping to go to La Zenia Boulevard and a taxi seems the best option. Thanks

We use teletaxi torrevieja. They have a great app that can pinpoint where you are, you just enter your destination and they send you a cab. We have always found them really reliable.

You can get a bus to La Zenia, it runs along the N332, the bus stops have the current timetable on them. You can also get the A bus to Torrevieja bust station then hop on the La Zenia Boulevard bus. Both really easy to navigate.

I have downloaded the taxi app but when I tried to use it ( for the first time) in La Mata at Easter no taxi arrived.  After a 40 min wait I phoned the taxi office and was told they don’t use the app .  Disappointing especially as it is heavily advertised on bus stops and in the taxi cabs themselves.  After that I walked to the taxi stand on the “strip” whenever I wanted one.     Interested to know if anyone else has more success with the app?

Hi

We use the app all the time and never been let down. I've never seen teletaxi ads anywhere, and I do know a lot of the companies have similar names. Could it be you used a different company app to the one I use?

The app I have is red background, white writing “taxi Torreviega “???  Is that the same as yours?

Yes I think it is, it has a linear picture of a taxi in it? We last used the app in December. Maybe things have changed? I'll check when I'm next in La Mata as it was a great service.

Sounds like the same one.  I’ll try it again when I’m out in May.

Hi where is the taxi stand on the strip please? We are near the square and only finding our way around at the moment. Thanks

The taxi stand is opposite the Square, on Calle Mayor. There should be markings on the street, maybe for 2 or 3 cabs. They rarely stand there, unless its high season or a busy even etc. If you go in any bar they will happily order a taxi for you. Most taxi companies in Torrevieja also speak English so its probably a case of trying a few and deciding which one suits you most. I thin in the 20 years I have been visiting La Mata, Ive seen a cab on the stand half a dozen times.

Thank you, we will be out again in May and will give it a go. I've downloaded the app on my mobile. Fingers crossed x
