Getting to Magaluf from Palma airport is easy. The options include taxi, private transfer, hire car or bus.
Trying to park in Magaluf during the the peak holiday season can be tricky and taking the bus usually increases your journey time considerably. A taxi transfer to the resort is therefore a very good option as it is quick and helps you avoid all the hassle of driving and parking.
The Palma airport taxi rank is right outside the arrivals hall and usually there are taxis waiting. However, in the busy peak times passengers may have to wait in a queue until a taxi becomes available.
👍TIP: The quickest and most convenient way of getting from the airport to your holiday resort is by booking a private transfer.
Palma airport taxis do have fixed prices but it is always best to get a quote before you start your journey. This is because fares can vary depending on the company, the time of day, weekends or bank holidays.
It’s good to bear in mind that most Palma airport taxis will only take 4 passengers per taxi. Hence, if you are a group of five and no larger taxis are available, you will need to take two taxis. This applies even if one in the group is a baby. Therefore the journey might cost you more than you have budgeted for.
A final point worth noting is that waiting taxis at Palma airport don’t always have child safety seats available. Sometimes they are able to borrow these from colleagues but this is not a guarantee.
👍TIP: If travelling in a larger group or with children, pre-booking a transfer will allow you to reserve a suitable vehicle.
