Mallorca Airport Transfers

Mallorca Airport Transfers

Mallorca’s Son Sant Joan airport lies just 8km east of the city of Palma de Mallorca. With around 23 million annual passengers it is Spain’s 3rd busiest airport. There are many flights to Mallorca from the United Kingdom and Germany all year round thanks to the popularity of the island as a holiday destination. All the well known budget airlines offer extensive services to Palma, including Ryanair and Air Berlin which have made the airport one of their key hubs. Many additional flight services appear during the summer months and the airport is well connected with the rest of Spain by domestic flights. There are plenty transfer options to destinations all over the island.

Airport Transport Options

Private Transfers: The most hassle free way of arranging a transfer into Palma city, further west to the popular resorts of Palma Nova and Magaluf or anywhere on the island is to pre-book a private transfer and have a have a vehicle waiting for you outside arrivals. Private Transfers are available to resorts all over the island.

Taxis from Mallorca Airport: There’s a huge taxi rank outside the arrivals lounge with taxis available for all arriving flights. Whilst their service is convenient you’ll generally find that pre-booked transfers to the popular resorts work out a little chaper.

Public Buses: There are buses running from outside arrivals into Palma from 06:10am through until 01:10am which are very cheap. Then you can get buses from Palma bus station to almost anywhere on the island. This option is most inconvenient after a long journey but is an option if you’re on a low budget.

Mallorca Airport Car Hire: For many visitors the best option is to collect a hire car at the airport. This option provides your airport transfers and gives you access to transport during your stay. Car rental in Mallorca is big business and with all the competition you can usually get a great deal. This is particularly the case in the off season as excessive summer demand can cause severe price hikes. Pre-booking rental cars is usually the cheapest way to go but before going ahead with your reservation ask yourself the big question … do you really need a car?

If you you decide that you do want to rent a car in Mallorca then we’d recommend that you get a quote from Discover Cars who tend to offer very good deals all year round.

If you’re on a package holiday then transport will be included from the airport so it’s pointless booking a car rental. Once you’re at your hotel you might decide that you fancy an excursion during your stay. If you take a look at what your hotel and local travel agencies offer you’ll see that trips to most attractions around the island are available so again you can avoid having a car. Also bear in mind that drink driving is a very serious offence in Spain so having a few beers whilst on a self drive excursion isn’t a good idea.

Having said all that you might be the type of traveller who likes to get off the beaten track and discover more of the island than the imeediate area near your resort has to offer. For instance the drive along the north-west coast of Mallorca is one of the most beautiful drives you’re ever likely to do. Unfortunately, the amount of traffic during the summer months destroys the experience so try to do this during an off-season holiday if possible.
