Getting to Alcudia – Taxi transfers, Car hire, Train & Bus

Getting to Alcudia from Palma airport can be achieved in a number of ways.  The popular methods are hiring a car, catching a bus, taking a taxi or pre-booking a private transfer.

Your choice will probably depend on your; budget, schedule or time. Once you have this in mind you can select the best method for you and your family.

Alcudia is on the north coast of the island and is approximately 59km/37miles from the airport. It is roughly a 42-minute car journey and the roads are fairly easy to navigate.

If you opt for public transport, note that the main public transport hub is in Palma city. Palma city transport centre is 8km/5miles east of Palma Airport, and you will have to go there first. However, the route to Alcudia passes around the city so it’s not too much out of the way.

Taxi – Transfer

*Please note – prices are for a standard licensed saloon vehicle with Meet & Greet service at PMI

A Taxi for 1-4 persons to Alcudia will be approximately €80-100. Fares range in price generally due to the; season, public holidays, the time of day and the amount of luggage.

Taxi transfers are really the most comfortable and easiest way to travel from Palma Airport to Alcudia. Parking in the summer can be a problem in certain areas around the port, so a taxi transfer is a good option as it eliminates this kind of road stress.

Palma airport taxi area is directly outside the arrivals building on the ground floor. There are usually a lot of taxi waiting and available but during busy times it is possible that you will have to wait in the queue. The taxis should charge a fixed price but get a price before the start of your journey as there are variables that can mean a higher than expected price.

Bear in mind that the airport taxis at Palma airport will often only take a maximum of 4 persons per taxi. So if you are a party of five, even if one is a baby, you will need to take two taxis. Also, it is worth noting that taxis at the airport don’t always carry child safety seats.

If you have decided to take a taxi transfer from Palma airport it would be advisable to pre-book a private transfer in advance as it can be cost-effective especially if you are a large party. We recommend Alcudia based Taxi Transfer firms like AT Mallorca, as they know all the locations in and around Alcudia and you can pay in cash to the driver. 

With a pre-booked private transfer, it is possible to book child safety seats and have the assurance that they will be there for your children. Another plus with pre-booked private transfer vehicles is that you will usually get a higher standard of vehicle. Your driver will meet you in Palma airport’s public arrivals hall with a name placard and will often help you with luggage.

More than four persons? With a pre-booked private transfer, it is possible to book a vehicle large enough for your family or group. Vehicles to Alcudia usually come in sizes of 1-7 minivans or 8-20 minibuses, it is also possible to pre-book a coach from some of the private transfer websites.
