Getting to Sa Coma – Taxi transfers, Car hire & Bus

Getting to Sa Coma from Palma airport can be approached in a number ways.  These could be; taking a taxi or pre-booked private transfer, using the train partway or catching a bus or even hiring a car.

Sa Coma is on the west coast of the island of Mallorca and is 69km/43miles from Palma airport.  The roads aren’t too busy and most of the journey is on the Ma-15.  It will take you roughly 60 minutes in a car journey from Palma airport.

If you are choosing to take the bus, there are two options. One is to go to Can Pastilla next to the airport and then take the bus to Sa Coma.

The most popular option however, due to the number of available buses, is to go to Palma city to the main bus and train station and from there take the bus to Sa Coma.  Palma city bus station is 8km/5miles east of Palma de Mallorca Airport.

Taxi – Private Transfer

Parking in the summer season can be difficult in the center of Sa Coma. Therefore a taxi transfer is an ideal option to avoid driving and parking stress.

Taxi fares range in price depending on; the company, the season/holidays, the amount of baggage and the time of day.  A Taxi for 1-4 persons to Sa Coma is roughly €90-100.

Palma airport taxi area is directly outside the arrivals building on the ground floor and there are normally many waiting taxis available.

However at busy times it could be that you have to wait in the taxi queue. Mallorca airport taxis do charge a fixed price but it is always better to get a quote before you start the journey as there can be variables. This may mean you will charged more than expected.

Also noteworthy is that most Mallorca airport taxis will only take a maximum of 4 passengers per taxi. Hence this means that if you are a family of five passengers, even if one is a very small baby, you will need to take two taxis. This will cost a lot more money than one larger vehicle.  Another common disadvantage with taxis at Mallorca airport is that they won’t always have safety seats for children available when you need them.

Pre-Booked Private Transfer

Pre-booking a private taxi transfer is a very comfortable and convenient way to get to Sa Coma from Palma airport. This is because they can often work out to be more economic especially if you are a larger group and they are often more comfortable vehicles.

If you decide to take a taxi from Mallorca airport it might be better for your party to pre-book a private transfer in advance.  With a pre-booked private transfer it is possible to have peace of mind and book child safety seats in advance.  Therefore you will have the peace of mind that they will be there for your children when you arrive.

Another plus about pre-booked private transfers is that you will usually get a more luxurious vehicle than a regular taxi. Your driver will meet you with a name placard in Palma airport’s public arrivals hall. Drivers also often help with luggage.

With a pre-booked private transfers it is possible to book a vehicle large enough for your family. The larger vehicles come in sizes of 1-7 minivans or 8-20 minibuses. If you require a coach some private websites also offer these services.
