A popular transportation option involves hiring a taxi. From the airport, the journey to Pollença for one to four people can cost an average of 80 to 90 euros, and fares can vary depending on the time of day, season, and the amount of luggage that each group has.
Taxis for hire can be found outside Palma’s arrivals terminal. Typically taxis have a fixed price from the airport to Pollença, and it’s best practice to agree on a quote with the driver before entering the vehicle.
Most taxis from the airport can transport a maximum of four people, so groups of five or more must hire a second taxi. It is not guaranteed that a taxi will have a child’s seat.
If you’re traveling with a group of five or more, you can also hire your own private transportation service. Minivans can carry up to seven people, while minibuses can transport eight to 20 people. For a quotation, please contact us directly. You can pre-book this service with us, and a private chauffeur will meet you at the airport with a sign displaying your name. You can also book safety seats for children through this service.

The first T1 train departs Palma at 05:45 and the final train departs at 21:35, with trains departing approximately every 15 to 20 minutes.
