Mallorca Transportation

Palma de Mallorca Airport, the third largest Spanish airport, services the island of Mallorca in the Balearic Islands. This destination island is so popular with tourists that tourism accounts for 80 percent of the industry of the island. Getting around Mallorca once landed at Palma de Mallorca Airport can be easy with a little planning ahead. Two parts of the tourism industry that can help in this plight are the airport taxis and car rental Mallorca Spain services.

Taxis can be found at the taxi rank outside the arrivals hall. There is a sectioned off area where travelers may queue up for a taxi. Taxis at Palma de Mallorca Airport can carry four passengers and the cargo space is limited to what can fit into the boot. Travelers are entitled to a receipt for their trip, their choice of route, proper air conditioning, and a clean and safe vehicle.

Taxis can only accommodate up to four travelers and have limited cargo space. They also are not required to provide child seats. Therefore, travelers with larger parties or special needs such as child safety seats or larger cargo room should arrange for a private transfer to pick them up at the airport. The arrangements can be made ahead of time on the telephone and will reduce any time wasted queuing for a taxi at the taxi rank outside the arrivals hall.

Transfer hire will arrange for a pick-up at an agreed upon spot in the airport where a driver will assist the party in their trek to the awaiting vehicle. Transfer drivers are insured and helpful. When making arrangements, travelers can request child safety seats, larger vehicles, and even special assistance to complete their experience. Contrary to what the name implies, a private transfer can often be an economical choice for a family or group travelling together. An added convenience is that pre-booked transfers can be prepaid with a credit card, making the transaction safe and simple.
