Yes, you can arrive at terminal T1 and leave via terminal T2, your Aerobus ticket does not take these changes into account. Just make sure you take the right bus, in this case the A2 bus from Catalonia Square.
Can I take the Aerobus with bulky luggage such as a stroller or a bicycle?
Yes, you can take the Aerobus with bulky luggage such as a stroller or a bicycle. Aerobus indicates that anything that can be transported by air can be transported on the bus where space for large objects is provided.

What does a 100% mobile ticket mean?
A 100% mobile ticket simply means that your ticket - which you will receive by email just after your purchase - will be - in its electronic form (PDF) - sufficient to enable you to make your visit with your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is present it at the checkpoint. A simple scan will allow you to make your visit.

What's included with this ticket?
On this same page or on the ticket reservation page - the services included with the purchase of your ticket are systematically indicated. See the "Included" or “Inclusions” section for details.
Why do I have to specify a date when buying a ticket?
When you are asked to specify the date of your visit, it is because the monument or service you have chosen to visit also requests it. Most of the time, this date allows tourist sites to limit the number of visitors and therefore to make the visits more fluid. Please note that if you are not asked to specify the time of your visit, this means that you can arrive at any time to visit the site - while respecting the visiting hours of the site in question.
Why do I have to specify a date and time when purchasing a ticket?
Same as before, but here in addition to the date - the monument or service you have chosen to visit - also asks you to specify the time you wish to visit. Once again it is a matter of limiting the number of visitors so that your visit is as pleasant as possible.
With a ticket - date and time requested - do I have to arrive at the exact time or can I be a little late for my visit?
On the ticket that you will receive by email after your purchase, it is normally specified how much time - in addition to the scheduled time - you are granted in order not to lose your visit. Please note, for example, that a visit to Parc Güell entitles you to entry 30 minutes after the stated time. The Sagrada Familia ticket indicates a time slot of 15 minutes. It is therefore important to respect this time slot. If the ticket does not specify a time slot, then the timetable must be respected.
Why are we talking about combined tickets?
We talk about combined tickets in some of our offers when they offer, for example, two places to visit in Barcelona. The ticket itself is not combined. It is two separate tickets that we combine to make a more economical and attractive offer. You will receive these two tickets by email. As they are separate you can use them according to your preference when the tickets are open or according to the dates and times you choose.
How to benefit from a discount for example according to age or for students?
When purchasing your ticket, discounts are always indicated when available. For example, there are regular discounts for children in different age groups, ranging from free for very young children to discounts for seniors over 65 years of age. Discounted tickets for students are indicated in the same way.
Don't forget your proof of discounts - identity card, student card... - to be shown during your visit to Barcelona.
What are the means of payment for the tickets?
To pay online your tickets to visit Barcelona, are accepted the classic means of payment used worldwide such as: Visa, Mastercard, Alipay, iDeal, GiroPay or Paypal.
What is the difference between tours and tickets?
The difference between tours and tickets is that both types of tickets allow you to visit the main monuments of the city with a guide who speaks your language for the tours (or guided tours) or by yourself with the tickets. You can find the guided tours and tickets in our section: Barcelona Tours
