Menorca Airport Transfers
When you land at Mahon, and you have passed through customs, we recommend one of the easiest and quickest ways to get to your hotel or villa is by a private taxi.
We always use Suntransfers to make a swift transfer between the airport and our accommodation. The big advantage is the return from your Villa or Hotel to the airport when your holiday is over.
It is not easy booking a return to the airport with a regular taxi, so we prefer to book a private taxi online like Suntransfers so it is easy for the driver to find us on time.
As you come through in the arrivals hall, both Suntransfers and Holiday Taxi drivers await with a board with your name on it. Within a 2 minutes walk to the car park where the private hire companies park and you are on your way.
Also, we use Holiday Taxis, again offering a similar service to Suntransfers. They have friendly drivers and are on time. Their websites are both easy to use and payment is made online in advance with a no-obligation quote before you book. You can cancel online too if you change your plans.
Private hire is not the cheapest, but what we like is the reliability no fuss quick transfers which is worth every penny (Euro).
