On the outskirts of Palma, Majorca’s stylish capital, Palma de Mallorca Airport is the gateway to this sun-kissed Balearic Island that counts Spain’s royal family among its many fans.

Majorca’s prime holiday hotspots are linked to the airport by public transport, but the most convenient way to get to your accommodation is by airport transfer. It takes a little more than one hour to travel by car from the airport in the west to resorts such as Cala Mesquida on the far side of the island, but expect to double or even triple that time if you use public transport. The same rule applies to most journeys across Majorca – assuming the place you’re staying in is served by public transport in the first place.

Arriving by private airport transfer is in keeping with Palma’s hip vibe, and the journey takes only 15 minutes. The capital is relatively easy to reach by public transport, so airport transfers in Majorca really come into their own when you’re heading to one of the further-flung resorts.

A public bus will drop you off somewhere in Magaluf, to the west of Palma, 40 minutes after leaving the airport – that’s after you’ve wasted precious holiday time figuring out which bus you need, bought tickets and queued. A private airport transfer will halve that time, but if cost is a factor, a cheaper but equally stress-free option is a shared shuttle. You could knock even more off the price by checking TravelSupermarket’s directory of companies offering airport transfers in Majorca.

A private transfer will deliver you to Alcúdia and other resorts in the north such as Port de Pollença in significantly less time than the bus. Plus, it’s a door-to-door service, so there’s no faffing about with directions and taxis at the other end.

On the east coast, you can reach resorts such as Cala d’Or in a little more than one hour by private airport transfer. That’s more than half an hour quicker than the bus – before you even take into account puzzling over how to get there by public transport in the first place.
