Taxis in Mallorca
Choosing to take a taxi when arriving in any new city is always the most convenient way to travel – and in Palma, it is sometimes the only way to travel. There are over 1,200 licensed taxis in the city, so finding a Mallorca taxi won’t be too difficult. Going further, taxi vehicles are easy to recognise as they are white with a red and yellow stripe across the middle and have a classic taxi rooftop sign. Moreover, all taxis are air-conditioned making it the most comfortable way to travel around the city.
However, if you prefer avoiding the hassle of finding a taxi on a hot summer’s day or struggling to speak to your Spanish driver, you can always pre-book with a private transfer company and secure an English-speaking driver at a fixed price.

Mallorca taxi tips
- Whilst many taxis accept card, most drivers prefer payment in cash, so it is always recommended to carry cash (in euros) if you are planning on taking a taxi in Mallorca.
- It is best to travel with smaller bills as most taxi drivers don't carry enough change.
- Most taxi drivers will automatically reset their taximeter to the base fare and turn the meter on. However, it is always good to double-check before you begin your journey.
- If you call a taxi in Mallorca, a surcharge of €1.10 will be added to your fare for the 'Radio call'.
- Giving a tip to your taxi driver in Mallorca isn't expected, but is always appreciated. A good rule of thumb is to round up to the nearest euro or up to 10% of the final fare for good service.
- You can always ask for a receipt when your trip is completed, in case you leave anything behind in the taxi.
Wheelchair-accessible Mallorca taxis
