Uber in BCN

Tomorrow Im staying at the Hilton diaganal Mar. I see Uber is at BCN but Uber X is quoting 44 whereas a regular taxi is at 30. Does this seem correct?

Well that depends on your departing point, is it the airport? El prat? if so, fixed rate from the T4 is 39€

there is no T4 in BCN, only T1 (new terminal) and T2 (old one, mostly low cost and charter companies)

and as far as I know, the 39 eur is not a fixed rate, but the aproximate rate from the airport to most city center destinations and hotels (so not those in Diagonal Mar, which are much further away)

The T4 was a typo, my bad!

I translated this:

Tarifa fixa de 39,00 que s'aplica als trajectes des de l'aeroport al Port de Barcelona i viceversa, i inclou tots els suplements.
Els taxis que no disposen de taxmetre adaptat per mostrar aquesta tarifa, portaran ben visible un adhesiu indicatiu amb la mateixa.

I guess that's where I got the wrong idea then. Though I went to BCN a couple of years before and there was an airport fixed rate as well, it may have changed then,

I know OP posted this many weeks ago, but for others in Spain looking for a taxi alternative, I have found Cabify to be good, though the drivers don't usually have the best English.
