To get to Palma Nova from Palma airport you have several options. You can take an airport taxi or book a private transfer, you can hire a car or use public transport.
Parking in and around Palma Nova center during the peak season can be a little problematic. Therefore, a taxi transfer to the resort can be a nice option as it’s quick and helps avoid the hassle of driving and parking.
The Palma airport taxi area is just in front of arrivals on the ground floor. There are typically lots of taxis waiting at Mallorca airport so this makes taking a taxi an inviting option. However, at busy peak times passengers may have to wait in the taxi queue.
In a hurry? Think about pre-booking a transfer to avoid the queues!
Palma airport taxis do have a fixed price system but it’s best to get an estimate before you start the journey. This is because there are variables which can increase the final price. Taxi prices range depending on the company, the time of day, weekends and public holidays.
Worried about the taxi fare? When pre-booking a transfer you are informed of the total cost before you even leave the house!
Most airport taxis in Mallorca will only take 4 passengers per taxi. So if you are a party of five and there are no larger taxis are available you will need to take a second taxi. Hence it will cost more than you may have budgeted for. This also applies even if one in the group is a baby. Also, waiting taxis at Palma airport don’t usually have child safety seats available.
Travelling in a larger group or with children? Book a private transfer and choose the size of vehicle, a child seat or other extras ou may need.
Pre-booking a private taxi transfer is probably the most comfortable way to get from Palma airport to Palma Nova. This includes arrival and departures all through the night or any time of the day as they work 24 hours.
However, due to the nature of their taxi licence, private transfers do need to be booked in advance. Ideally, if you want to guarantee availability, you will need to book at least with 24 hours ahead of time.
Private transfer vehicles are often more luxurious than standard taxis. Despite this, pre-booked transfers often work out cheaper, especially for larger parties.
Transfers can be pre-booked for vehicles of various sizes. Vehicles typically come in sizes of 1-4 cars, 1-7 minivans or 8-13 minibuses. In most cases it’s possible to book a vehicle large enough for your party.
Some other perks are that drivers will meet passengers with a name placard in the airport’s public arrivals hall and usually help with luggage. And to to give anxious parents peace of mind, it’s good to know that when pre-booking a private transfer it’s possible to book child safety seats in advance.
