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.
Although quite small, Mallorca’s rail system transports passengers from Palma to various points around the island. The T1 line is the main route that travels from Palma to Inca with stops in Marratxi, Santa Maria, Consell, Binissalem, and Lloseta. From Inca, passengers must find alternative transport to finish the journey to the northern coast, which can be completed by bus. 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.
Mallorca is conveniently connected by a reliable bus system with comfortable, air-conditioned coaches. The best time to travel by bus is during the day as Mallorca buses do not operate at night, and the service is limited on weekends and during the winter months.
To travel to the north of the island by bus, there are two route options:
• Route 340 – This route travels from the Palma City Bus Station (Intermodal Station – Plaça d’Espanya) to the northern towns.
• Route A32 – This route travels from the airport to the town of Alcudia, where passengers can connect to Pollença (11km away) via other bus routes.
The island of Ibiza lies just off of the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. From most European airports, the flight will takes two to three hours, with direct flights available during the summer season. In winter some airlines may not offer direct flights, but you can still reach the island by first stopping through other cities like Barcelona or Madrid.
Renting a car on the island is easy and affordable, and is a great way to ensure that you’ll see all that Ibiza has to offer. Due to high demand in the peak season, it is best to book early to ensure there is a car available.
There are many options and companies that provide car hire, with the choice to go with major international brands or small local suppliers. If you are intending to use a car for the entirety of your stay, it is recommended you pick up your car directly from the airport. To hire a car, you need an international driver’s licence and be at least 21 years of age.
Our villas are located all over the island, but our check in-office is located west of the airport. To reach the office by car, follow these instructions.
– Exit the airport and head southeast towards Carrer de l’Angel. When you reach the roundabout, take the Ctra. Sa Caleta exit. Continue for 1.8km and at the next roundabout take the 2nd exit onto PM-805.
– After 8.5km, turn left and follow the road for another 1.2km until you reach a roundabout. Take the second exit onto Av.Cala Tarida.
– At the next roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Carrer de Sant Dentol
– Finally, at the last roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Carrer de Cala Tarida.
All of the larger towns will have taxi stops where there will be a line of taxis waiting to pick up passengers. In the smaller towns you may have to call a taxi agency or make sure your transport is arranged in advance. You will be able recognise Ibiza taxis by their green lines on the roofs and signs baring a white ‘T’. There are day and night rates, the night rates being slighting more expensive. Generally the cabs charge a starting fee of 3.50 euros and then 1.20 euros for each additional kilometre.
At the airport there are typically taxis waiting just outside of the arrivals building, but in busy seasons there are not enough taxis to meet demand, so it is likely that you will have to wait in line until one becomes available. Although it is not a long journey to the check-in office, it is always best to get a quote before you set off.
By Private Transfer
If you are not planning on hiring a car and don’t want the hassle of a taxi, then it might be worth arranging a private transfer before you travel. If you are travelling in a group, this is often the most cost-effective and efficient way to reach your destination quickly.
It is also likely that you will get a better level of service with this method. Depending on who you book with, your driver can meet you in the arrivals hall with a board baring your name. They often help with your luggage and provide children’s seats when requested.
Throughout the entire year there are regular ferries that run between Ibiza and cities in mainland Spain, including Barcelona and Valencia. It is possible to take your car on these ferries so you have a method of transport when you arrive in Ibiza. The ferry terminal is located in Ibiza town.
There are also regular ferries that travel between Formentera and Ibiza. The two large companies of Balearia and Trasmapi connect several times a day. To reach the harbour from the airport, there are regular buses or you can catch a taxi.
From most major resorts, there are much smaller ferries that run to nearby beaches as well as many boat excursions that can take you to different parts of the island for the day.
The island has a regular and extensive bus service that can take you to the majority of towns and villages. Between all major resorts there are half-hour connections, as well as regular services to all the main beaches.
During the peak period, the buses tend to run from 7am until 10pm. However, if you want to stay out later, you can catch the ‘disco’ bus which runs from midnight to 6am, stopping at major resorts and clubs.
The travel is comfortable thanks to the large, air-conditioned vehicles and generally short travel times. During the winter however, be aware that the bus schedule is dramatically reduced, making it fairly difficult to reach some destinations.
The only buses that run to the area around our check-in office are those that come out of San Antonio or Eiviissa. To reach San Antonio you should take Bus route number 9.
