We’re happy to announce that today we officially launched ride-hailing operations in Madrid! Our aim is to offer better conditions for passengers and drivers, by improving the overall quality of ride-hailing. But what does that mean exactly?

Higher earnings for drivers

First, for the Madrileños sitting behind the wheel.

Offering Bolt drivers fairer earnings, allowing them to support their families and fulfil their dreams is at the centre of everything we do. This is exactly why Bolt drivers only pay 15% commission on the trips they’ve completed.

Compared to other ride-hailing apps on the market, Bolt drivers take home up to 60% more, thanks to our significantly lower commission fee.

Lower ride prices

Another thing we strive for is to offer our riders affordable, safe, and fast transportation, taking the hassle out of moving around their city:

  • The starting fee of a Bolt ride in Madrid will be €3.5;
  • The fee for each kilometre is €0.95 and it’s €0.11 for each minute during the ride;
  • The minimum cost of a Bolt trip is €3.5.

To celebrate Bolt’s launch in Madrid, riders will get a 70% discount on their first 5 rides.

Places to visit in Madrid

Now that you’ve got your transportation sorted, it’s time to highlight some must-visit places in Madrid. Here are some recommendations from the Bolt team:
