Transport from Leon to Santander

Hi folks -

We are planning a rail/fly tour of northern Spain in April/May 2018. It seems that by far the quickest way to get from Leon to Santander via the Altamira cave art museum will be to hire a car and driver for the day. We will be staying in Airbnb accomodation that has no front desk, so we cannot ask there. We could try Uber, but that sounds expensive. Does anyone have any information on how to hire a car and driver in Leon? Any info or experience would be greatly appreciated.

You don't happen to say how many "we" might be, but I would ask for a quote from a local taxi company, for a specific long-distance trip from A to B (private transfer), at a specific cost rather than charged on the meter.

Try http://www.radiotaxileon.com/fares.html - you can probably calculate the cost of an "intercity trip" yourself with the information given and checking distances on e.g. www.viamichelin.com - radiotaxiamarillociudaddeleon.com/tarifas-ra… or http://www.taxienleon.com/tarifas.html (contact under "largas distancias", or, at least if "we" are more than 4 persons (or you have a lot of luggage), https:/…

What my wife and I do is to go to a taxi stand the day before and ask the first taxi driver if he will be willing to bring us to the city we want to go to and if he is willing, what will he charge us for the service. If we agree on the fee we tell the taxi driver where to pick us up and at what time. We have done this many times.
