Zarza Taxis are very good, run by Alicia and Toni from the Los Zarzales restaurant in PP. Always a reliable and friendly service.

You can get their contact details from the left-hand menu on this website under - 'Airport Taxis & Transfers'

Ryanair use Shuttle Direct, but I've never used their services.

Hope the above helps...

Depending on cost & number of passengers, you have the choice between taxis or a shuttle bus (or public transport). A shuttle bus works out cheaper if there are only one or two of you. I've used ResortHoppa when I've come out on my own & it was fine.

See Transport in Puerto Pollensa, Majorca - taxis, bus, trains, airport transfers for more info.

I've used Shuttle Direct for the last two years and they have been excellent.

Can also recommend Zarza taxis we had booked them when our flight was cancelled instead of needing a pick up at mid-day our new flight did not arrive until the early hours I telephoned them from the airport and they were there for us at the new time and did not charge any extra to the previously agreed price.

Thank you all for the advice , Looks like "Shuttle Direct" may be the best option as we are flying Ryanair but where do we board the "Shuttle Bus" at the Airport & how long are we likely to wait?

Edward, in my experience you are unlikely to wait much longer than 45 minutes, sometimes less than that.

Default Shuttle Direct

When you book with Shuttle Direct, they will give you directions. When we arrived, we had to turn left and their stand was a few meters away. When we travelled with them in October, the bus was waiting for us. On our return, they were 5 minutes early picking us up at the hotel. On our previous visit to PP, we only had to wait 5 minutes at the airport and on our return, they arrived at exactly the time they'd stated. When you book with Shuttle Direct, you have to remember to telephone them from PP the day before you are leaving for them to confirm the pick up time.

Does anyone think "ResortHoppa" would be a good/efficient & cheaper service?

ResortHoppa were fine when I used them. With regard to 'cheaper' you will need to check their prices & compare.

We have used Resort Hoppa many times, they have never let us down, the cost is only slightly more than taking the bus and it's direct from airport to PP. Just note though they do not operate a service in the winter.

Hi all

I'm coming out to PP in February and know that Resort Hoppa don't operate the cheap shuttle bus service then. However, I shall get the bus from the airport to the main underground station in Palma.

Does anyone know how frequent the buses are from the airport to palma and then from Palma to PP ?? (For February).

Many thanks,

Nick

Bus from Airport to Palma is very frequent and then onto PP depends on day and time, but I think it is every 45 minutes/1 hour normally.

Transport in Puerto Pollensa, Majorca - taxis, bus, trains, airport transfers

Follow the link above for bus services/timetables, these are the same throughout the year (Transunion, Palma - PP).
The airport bus into Palma bus station is every 15 mins.
