Getting to Valldemossa – Taxi, Private transfer or Car hire.

Getting to Valldemossa from Palma airport will usually involve taking a taxi or pre-booked private transfer, taking the bus or hiring a car.

The town of Valldemossa is located in the mountains on the rugged west side of Mallorca.  Palma airport is only around 30 minutes in a car and is just 26km/16miles away.

Taxi – Private Transfer

Palma airport taxis wait directly in front of the arrivals area. Taking a taxi is a simple option, but in busy periods passengers will possibly have to wait in the taxi queue.

Looking for a place to park in the old town of Valldemossa during the high season can be a little difficult.  Consequently taking a taxi transfer will help avoid problems of this nature and the stress of driving.

Palma airport taxis have a fixed fare system but it is always good to get a price from the driver before setting of as there are variables.  Taxi fares range depending on the time of day, holidays and amount of luggage.  A Taxi for 1-4 persons for Valledemosa is approximately €45.

Groups of five or more will most probably need a second taxi as most airport taxis at Palma will only take 4 passengers per taxi. This applies even if one of the passengers is a small child or a baby.  Two taxis will cost double, however there are some larger taxis although not so many.

Also Palma airport taxis don’t always have child safety seats available. However many times drivers will be able to borrow the seats from colleagues.

Private Transfer Booked in Advance

A pre-booked private taxi transfer is one of the most comfortable way to get from Palma airport to Valldemossa. This is because private transfer vehicles are often high end models.  However they are often the same price or even cheaper, especially for larger groups.  They can also be booked any time of the day or night for the same price.

The vehicle sizes for private transfers are 1-4 passenger cars, 1-7 minivans or 8-20 minibuses.  In most cases it’s possible to book a vehicle for your travel group, even for coaches.

If you want peace of mind and the guarantee that your transfer is possible you will need to book 24hours advance. Pre-booked taxi licenses are different from regular taxis and do need to be booked as they can’t be hailed.

Some additional advantages over regular taxis are that drivers will meet passengers with a name placard in the airport’s public arrivals hall and will usually help with luggage. It is also possible to book child safety seats.
