There are additional charges for transporting bikes and other sporting equipment.
Not all taxis have child seats.
It is often better to organise your taxi transfers before you leave home (a tip for next time).
Palma taxis are not familiar with rural villas outside of their area, so you can end up paying more because of the time taken to locate your accommodation.
Use a taxi company local to where you are staying is the best way to ensure a seamless journey.
