A pre-booked taxi transfer gives you a fixed price at the time of booking. Trying to argue about a higher than expected bill from an airport taxi on a meter will be annoying to say the least and has little chance of success. For those who live in Mallorca, the final price of a pre-booked taxi on longer transfers may also undercut the cost of airport parking.
While white taxis waiting at Palma airport have seemingly fair rates in comparison to pre-booked taxi transfers, there is always an element of uncertainty. Depending on the distance or your time of travel, the total fare can work out to be more than with a pre-booked transfer, especially for longer journeys.
Benefits of a Pre-Booked Taxi Transfer
What are the benefits of a pre-booked Palma airport transfer?
1. Correct size taxi transfer vehicle
Standard Airport taxis are only legally permitted to take 4 passengers, including minors. So, if you’re a family with several kids or a large party with more than 4 persons, you will have to take more taxis, and this will put the budget up considerably.
When pre-booking a transfer you can select the right size vehicle for your group or family. Theoretically, you can even hire a coach if need be, but most clients are grateful for a 7 passneger sized SUV or minivan type vehicle. Although these cost a little more, they are much cheaper than two 1-4 passenger taxis. This also applies to those who have unusually large amounts of luggage, perhaps Palma cruise liner passengers or golfers. The larger vehicles can easily accommodate a bit of extra luggage.
2. Peace of mind
During busy periods at Palma Airport, a taxi might not be immediately available and you may need to queue for a while.
Pre-booking a transfer will give you the peace of mind knowing that you won’t have to wait in a queue for a taxi and your pre-booked transfer will be there. Time is precious on holidays, so why spend it in a busy airport?
If you have to catch a flight from Palma airport then having a pre-booked taxi has its obvious benefits for your peace of mind, especially for the last night of your holiday.
3. Child seats fitted in the taxi transfer car
If you arrive at Mallorca airport and take a waiting taxi, there is a chance that it won’t have any child safety seats. Drivers are known to share seats with other drivers but only if there is one available. If you pre-book a baby-, child- or booster-seat you know it is guaranteed to be there.
4. Direct door to door transfer service
A private transfer from Palma Airport 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 with door to door service.
What to expect when booking a transfer from Palma Airport
If you’re the sort of person who is slightly flattered at seeing your name in print, then pre-booked taxis are for you!
Your driver will meet you as you enter the public arrivals hall, holding an official airport name card with your name on it. Although during busy times this might be a handwritten sign.
He will check your booking details and then escort you to a waiting private taxi just outside the terminal building. From there he will take you to your destination and once there will request payment.
If your flight is delayed, in most cases your driver will monitor your flight and be waiting for you when you arrive at no extra cost. You will receive an emergency telephone number to contact or locate your driver, which for return bookings is very reassuring.
Where to meet your transfer driver at Palma Airport
Your meeting point will be on your booking details. However, virtually all transfer drivers will meet at the official waiting point. This is signposted and even marked on the floor.
You will find this by exiting the baggage reclaim area through the middle set of doors, this is Gate C. You will have entered the public arrivals hall and be standing on the meeting point where you will need to scan for your name on one of the name signs.
Check the driver is the correct one for the company you booked with and has your details. Some rogue drivers will try to get passengers and claim to be their driver. They will take you to your destination and also try to take payment for the return fare to the airport but may not show up for the return!
How to book a cheap low cost transfer from Palma Airport
There are a number of Palma Airport transfer websites like the highly recommended Spanish company Solhop. Most are very simple to use. Solhop do allow you to pay on arrival.
You merely select your destination and enter the number of passengers, then you should see a price. If it is agreeable you will enter your flight and contact details and a destination or pick up address.
Some sites require payment up-front but most don’t need this and will confirm your transfer and arrange for a driver to be waiting for you.
If you no longer need the taxi, even though you haven’t paid anything it’s so important to cancel with your booking company. Most drivers are on commission and won’t get paid for their time if the client is a no-show.
If you prefer to drive yourself you can book car hire at Palma Airport.
Questions about Palma Airport Transfers
How much can I bring in a transfer vehicle?
It depends on the company, but most allow one large suitcase and one cabin sized bag/case per person. If the vehicle is large enough, transfer companies usually don’t charge if you bring more luggage, although you will need to clear this with the company you have booked with.
Can I bring my bicycle or golf clubs? You will need to inform the company you have booked with to make sure the vehicle is large enough. You may need to upgrade to a larger vehicle which will cost a little extra.
Can I bring a foldable wheelchair?
Of course, but as with extra luggage, you will need to check your vehicle is large enough to carry all your luggage with a foldable wheelchair.
Are there disabled access vehicles? Yes, but only a few companies have these vehicles with drive-on wheelchair or scooter access. You will need to check the company you are booking with. These vehicles do generally cost a little more to book, around 25-40% more. For more information on wheelchair accessible taxis, please view our taxi page.
What happens if my flight is delayed?
Your driver will monitor your flight and wait. Some companies only have a one-hour waiting limit. Most drivers will wait longer than this or arrange for another driver to wait for you.
How long have I got to get through passport control and customs?
Your driver will see your flight arrival time and expect to see you in around 20-30 minutes after the flight lands. After this time, he will normally try to call you. Some drivers may think it is a no-show and leave, so if you are delayed longer than this, it is good to call your driver or send one of your party through to meet the driver.
Can i smoke in a transfer car?
No. Smoking is banned in all pubic vehicles in Spain.
Can I bring my Pet?
In most cases, yes, but it is a question of luggage space. You will need to tell the company you have booked with to make sure there is enough space.
Can I make a stop en route to collect keys?
Can we make a stop en route to collect keys? Yes, but you need to tell the company you booked your Palma Airport transfer with. If this is en route or near to your destination you usually won’t be charged. Some companies charge an additional €10-15 for extra stops.
What time should I book the return pick-up for?
Aim to be at Palma airport two hours prior to your flight departure time. You will need to know your transfer journey time to do this.
