But that is another long post. To avoid paying abusive airport supplement, follow this advice:
As stated in the map, Madrid Barajas T1, T2, T3 and T4 are separated by Barajas city metro stop. Not everyone is aware, that Barajas city is situated into a walkable distance! (especially is you are carrying no luggage)
I usually take this route, as soon as you get out of the underground, walk through Calle de Jupiter down the street until you start to face airport building, then is difficult to get lost.
However, today I investigated a different route, it looked safer and actually shorter than I though (only 18 minutes)
Just be careful that a short path (close to Camino del Cuartel roundabout) is not pedestrian so keep an eye on the cars!

How to access the walkable route coming out the airport:
1.- If you are landing into T4, you will have to take the shuttle bus into terminal 2
2.- No matter which terminal are you landing, just walk to the T1,T2,T3 metro (situated at T2)
3.- Do not enter into the underground, take the right path through the parking area.
|This is the parking area next to the underground|
4.- Go straight away, this is the first floor of the parking area.
5.- You will see the famous blue bridge.
6.- Walk through the bridge, other side of the bridge there is the parking area for employees.
After a few minutes you will be already in Barajas town. Easy peasy. Just bear in mind there is not pedestrian path for 1 minutes once you are getting close to Camino del Cuartel. The walk is about 20 minutes. And without paying that abusive 3 € senseless supplement!!
