Default Getting to PP from airport

Hello all

Many thanks for having me here on the forum - I've been reading loads of posts and enjoying your insights and wit! Very excited for our trip to PP in July.

Just wondering - would you guys generally recommend getting an airport transfer or just getting the public bus from Palma?

Thanks!

I'd say there's good and not so good points for every kind of transfer.
We've done taxi, bus transfer, private shuttle and rental car.

Best value is probably the bus from Palma or the bus transfer...
The private shuttle is a great compromise and the taxi is a great time saver...

It depends on your budget, your traveling party, your luggage and other requirements (e.g. child seat, wheel chair).


You can pick and mix for the arrival and the return.

Enjoy your trip to PP

To take the bus you will need to take the bus from airport to Palma - 3 EUR - & then bus to Palma 6.30 EUR (see .puertopollensa.com/transport-taxis-bus-trains.html#buses - so 9:30 EUR in total & a bit of a pain!

The shuttle with someone such as ResortHoppa currently costs £14.66 (with 10% discount) plus there's a code with another 15% off here http://www.forum.puertopollensa.com/...ay-2014-a.html

so not a massive difference & much easier. But if there are several of you a taxi costs 77 EUR so worth considering too.

Default Taxi costs

We have booked our taxi for our trip and the cost is 73euros .

We had used Resort Hoppa and can recommend them. In fact we taxi up and get resort Hoppa back . Not so bothered about time on the way back but when I land in Palma I cannot be bothered with the waiting around for others to be picked up .

Just want the holiday to start ASAP!

That's interesting. I looked at the taxi rank when we were out last & it looked as if someone had written '77' on as the 'official' rate. If anyone can find out for me & if there are any other changes to puertopollensa.com/taxirates - I'll be able to update that page. Thanks!

I paid 73 euros pre-booked with Conde taxis last month. I think you'll always pay more from the taxi rank plus they often charge on top for luggage.

Thanks everyone - great tips. Was a bit dubious if ResortHoppa was worth it versus the bus, but I think you're right about the faff:cost ratio, Pollensa

I reckon ResortHoppa on the way there and then maybe the bus on the way back as our flight's not till 7.30 in the eve so if we leave early we could have a look round Palma beforehand

If you use a taxi between 9pm and 6am there is an 8% surcharge.

Default Getting to resort

Maybe worth pointing out that the Resorthoppa price quote at £14 is for the return journey so really much cheaper than the public bus at the moment. The Forum discount code gets the price down to £12.88 and it really is a lot less hassle if you have luggage.

Default Taxi for 5

I have just had a quote from Conde for 95 euros each way for 5 of us. Does that seem reasonable, seems a lot to me! Thanks.

I think that is about right, the basic charge is for up to 4 people but as you are 5 they will charge more .

We've paid 73 euros for 2 adults and 1 child over several occasions recently with Conde so as Sparky says that sounds about right to me.

They are very good. Nice clean, comfy vehicles. Well recommended IMO.

We paid 95 euros each way last year for 6 of us - with Zarza Taxis, who were excellent.

We have had visitors use Conde taxis and Zarza taxis for 5 people and both charge 95€. Both also provide an excellent service
