Savvy tourists arriving at Palma airport tend to pre-book their taxi transfer online and have a driver waiting for them inside the arrivals area. It is probably the most stress free way of getting to your destination and generally quicker than contracting car hire. The driver holds a sign with name on and quickly gets you to the waiting vehicle without any queuing.
👍🏿TIP: Pre-booking an airport transfer online gives you a fixed price and avoids any nasty surprises.
Pre-booked vehicles at PMI are generally of a higher standard than typical taxis and can often be cheaper. You also generally get your luggage included in the price, whereby airport taxis can charge you extra. Pre-booking cuts out any misunderstandings with taxi drivers regarding prices. There have been numerous experiences of unscrupulous drivers overcharging unsuspecting travellers.
A taxi transfer is quicker than a shuttle bus, as the shuttle bus will normally drop people off at specific locations along the route and it can take a lot of time to get to your destination. Whereas the taxi gets you direct to your accommodation.
👍🏿TIP: You generally get a better standard of car when you pre-book an airport taxi.
When pre-booking, look for a local company with a good reputation for reliability and punctuality, as there are many global international agencies that can tend to be more expensive and less communicative when it comes to dealing directly with drivers.
We have always recommended Solhop, a fully licensed Spanish supplier. You don’t need a credit card to pre-book and you can pay your driver in cash or with a card. You can also cancel your booking at any time without having to haggle about refunds. Check out the table below to compare rates of different suppliers.

Taxis can be found directly outside of the public arrivals hall. To get to the taxi rank aim to exit the baggage reclaim area through the middle set of doors, this will be exit gate C. You will enter the public arrivals hall and will also be at the meeting point for pre-booked taxi transfers. Carry on in a straight line from here and directly exit the airport building, this will be through exit gate 4. Now outside go to your left, where you will find queues of both taxis and travellers waiting for the white taxis. Join the queue which is cordoned off or avoid queuing by prebooking.
Shun any unofficial taxi drivers who may try to offer you their service, only take official airport/Mallorca taxis. If you have any grievance about payment or service, make sure you get a receipt although this is only beneficial if from an official taxi driver. Most drivers allow you to either pay in cash or by credit card. Remember that Palma airport taxis have a maximum passenger limit of 4 persons, each child or baby is counted as 1 person. If you have more than 4 people in your party you will need to pre-book a private transfer for a larger vehicle, see our page about booking a private transfer. Another possibility is to just take as many taxis as you need although this will be a lot more expensive.

Wheelchair taxis are available from a few different providers. Since most companies have a limited number of wheelchair accessible vehicles in their fleet, it is recommended to book your transfer at the same time as booking your holiday.
Most of the vehicles are accessed via ramp and can accommodate manual as well as powered wheelchairs. If you are planning to travel in a power chair, you may wish to check that the total unladen weight of your chair is not above the weight limit for the wheelchair taxi, especially with regards to the tie-down-system, as some power chairs can be very heavy.
If contacting the taxi companies by telephone, it is useful to know a little Spanish. However, the companies are generally helpful and will try to put you through to an English-speaking member of staff if needed.
The fares vary from company to company and you may wish to obtain several quotes to compare prices. As a rough estimate, wheelchair taxis are between 25-40 % more expensive in comparison to a standard taxi.

Knowing a bit of Spanish is useful as not all drivers may be fluent in German or English. However, most drivers are helpful and generally friendly. If you are with a driver fluent in your language or your Spanish is good enough, then they may be able to help you with local knowledge. If you want to know about good bars or restaurants or one that’s recommended, drivers are good to ask as they often have a few in mind. Also, they can help in directing you to the areas with the best or most lively nightlife or most spectacular natural attractions on the island.
