A Taxi for 1-4 persons to Cala Millor is around €90-100. Taxi fares range in price depending on; the company, the season/holidays, the amount of luggage and the time of day.
Parking in peak season can be tight around the centre of Cala Millor. Therefore a taxi transfer is a good option as it eliminates driving and parking stress.
There are normally plenty of waiting taxis available at the airport. The Palma airport taxi area is directly in front of the arrivals building on the ground floor.
However, at busy times it may be that you will have to wait in the queue. Palma airport taxis should charge a fixed price but it is always best to get a price before the start of your journey as there are variables. This can mean they will charge you a higher than expected fare.
Also, bear in mind that the airport taxis at Palma airport tend to only take a maximum of 4 persons per taxi. Hence this means that if you are a group of five passengers, even if one is a baby, you will need to take two taxis. This will increase the costs to your holiday considerably. Another point worth noting is that taxis at Palma airport don’t always have child safety seats available.

If your hire car was from one of the car hire companies next to the airport on the east side of the airport, it is, however, better not to join the main highway.

Follow the Ma-4023 for 2.3km until the next roundabout where you take the fourth exit for Cala Millor on the Ma-4046 and hence in approximately 1km you will have arrived at Cala Millor.
