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 taxi licenses 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 a private transfer company, with an English-speaking driver online at a fixed price.

How to get a Taxi in Mallorca

As there are many taxis around Mallorca, they are very easy to find. You can either flag one down in the street, go to an official taxi rank placed around the city or call a taxi yourself. Furthermore, if you are in a bar, restaurant, or a hotel, you can always ask an employee to call a taxi for you. It is easy to see if a Mallorca taxi is free as the vehicle will show the word ‘libre’ (free in Spanish) and a green light.

Please note that taxis will not carry more than 4 passengers, so if you are travelling with a bigger group, you will either need to get more than one taxi or a larger vehicle.

The Benefits of Booking a Mallorca Transfer in Advance

Knowing that you have a Mallorca taxi waiting for you at your location at a set time, and at a set price is a great feeling, especially if you do not know the city. Moreover, if you want to plan your budget in advance, then knowing the exact price of your Mallorca transfer is perfect.

Please note that many private booking companies charge higher fees and have hidden charges, so it is highly recommended to book your Mallorca transfer with Welcome Pickups.

Mallorca Taxi Tips

  1. Most drivers prefer payment in cash, so it is always recommended to carry cash (in euros) on you if you are planning on taking a taxi in Mallorca.
  2. It is best to travel with smaller bills as most taxi drivers don't carry enough change.
  3. 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.
  4. If you call a taxi in Mallorca, a surcharge of €0.95 will be added to your fare for the 'Radio call'.
  5. 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.
  6. 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

Not all taxis in Mallorca are wheelchair accessible, however, they are wheelchair friendly, meaning that your driver can fold up the wheelchair and store it (at no extra charge) in the boot of the vehicle. If you wish to travel in a wheelchair-accessible taxi with special support for disabled passengers, you can order one in advance.
