hi can anyone tell me how much the Road Train costs per adult/child and if there is free parking in Cala D'Or ?
taken from caladorscene.. a good site to look at for general info.
There are two mini road trains that run around town. One runs between Cala d'Or and Cala Egos, and the other runs between Cala d'Or and Cala Esmerelda
One starts from Eroski Supermarket on the outskirts of town and then goes to Cala Egos and the Fort before returning to Cala d'Or via the Marina.The first train sets off from Eroski at 09.40 and then hourly until 12.40 and then again from 15.50 to 19.50. The round trip takes 55 minutes.
The other service goes from Cala Ferrera (by the Cala Azul Park and Esmeralda Park hotels) and runs to Eroski Supermarket, around the back of the Marina and then into Cala d’Or before making its way past Cala Gran beach and Cala Esmeralda before finishing by the Melia Cala d’Or and Cala d’Or Park hotels. This train sets off from Cala Ferrera at 09.30 and then hourly until 13.30, and then again from 16.30 to 19.30 (20.30 in the months May to September). The round trip takes 52 minutes.
The cost of the train is 2,00€ for a single trip (Children and adults) and 4,00€ for adults and 2,50€ for children for the round trip.
There is some free parking if you know where to look but the majority of town spaces are now Blue bays which mean you have to pay when you park at a ticket machine, it is only a few cents per hour but you will get ticketed and if you do not pay there and then your car hire company will be charged and then you with some extra for admin on top i am sure.
Look at the hours required for payment though on the ticket machine as Siesta time is free and most of the bays are free after 6pm.
Many thanks for your reply that's good to know.
Just a question on the parking - is it a case of putting the money in the machines on the street & sticking a label / ticket in the car window or does it have to be purchased from a shop etc :)
There are ticket machines everywhere there are blue bays, they have some English on the instructions so are pretty easy to use.
Just make sure you have some small coins as it really is very cheap.
If there are no blue lines it's free but don't park across a driveway as the Police are very quick to remove cars to the local compound where you then pay a fortune to get them back,
It's a nice place really.
Great thanks ! Nice to be prepared 🙂
