Default Taxi to PP

Hi all
Newbie as you can see so apologies if this is a frequent question ( I have looked
Going to the Miimar apts in late May on what is becoming an annual PP visit with my elderly mother. Although I am happy to get the bus from Palma but she wants to shell out for a taxi. Would you say it is worth booking via the hotel rather than one of the PP firms ( realise it would likely be the same people) and leave the Mirimar to check up on pick up for return ?
I go to Palma for a short break every year so know where the Taxi rank is , but where do you pick up your private taxi
Thanks
LaAlly

Default Taxi

Hi, we use Conde Taxi they wait for you in the arrivals hall with your name on a board. They are very reliable and friendly and they speak english. You can book directly on their website and then they send you a confirmation email. You pay when you are picked up so nothing upfront. It is 70 euro each way for 2 people.
Hope this helps.
Meant to say taxis Conde is a local firm so know the area well and they do advertise on the forum so I think it alright for me to recommend them. We have been quoted 70 euro for day or night arrivals for two people but it is always better to check directly with them.

Hi LaAlly and welcome to the forum.

I would imagine in May it would be easy to pick up a taxi at the airport which would take you to PP. The price would be the same as if you booked through the Miramar. The disadvantage is if you don't know where the apartments are located and are unable to direct the driver! If you booked a local company or did it through the hotel you would be safe in the knowledge the driver would know where he's going.

Many years ago we got an airport taxi and apart from the fact that it was the scariest journey i have ever had it was also quite a bit more expensive than the PP taxis , so i would always advise using local taxis.

You will find a few taxi companies here :- Transport in Puerto Pollensa, Majorca - taxis, bus, trains, airport transfers, when booking by email just give them your name, flight details, date and accommodation name, the driver will be waiting for you in arrivals with your name on a board.
Or of course you could just get the Mirimar to book it for you, it should cost you 73€ (daytime) and 79€ (night) .

We were very happy with the service of Conde Taxis last year and will be useing them again this year

Very prompt timekeeping and a lovely smooth journey Some places we have been I think I would probably rather walk than travel with them again !

Cheers copper, I think I will give them a go. I presume that they will sort out the time for a return pick up as my mother is reg blind and we need plenty of time to get through Palma airport . Stressed her out last night as it was a bit of dash to the plane - will get assistance this time ! better than me shouting, run , whack em with your stick

Cant recommend Conde Taxis highly enough.

Have used them last four trips and Sisco one of their drivers is extremely helpful
and a lovely chap.

If we ever need a cab back late from the port to a villa,i'd just call him and he arrange a cab to come and collect us if he wasnt available.

Here's one more vote for Conde...

We used them for the first time last year. At the airport easy to find with name on card. Bonus was the four of us had a mini-bus to ourselves up to PP Picked up 10 days later bang on time.
