Taxi or Car Hire?

We are renting a apartment in Cala Marcal in August and are unsure about wether to get a taxi from the airport or hire a car. We are a bit unsure about driving, particuly from the airport but are worried we may be restricted without transport. There are 5 of us so we are looking at about £250 for a hire car for the week. Does anybody know if there are plenty of 7 seater taxis from the airport and if they charge more than the 70/80 euros people pay for normal taxis? thanks

Think you would have to arrange in advance if you want a 7 seater.

I would always hire a car, autcaresroig are based in Cala D'or but also have an office at the airport so you can book online with them before you go.

Driving in Mallorca is quite easy the roads are of a good condition and the drive to PC from the airport is very straight forward.

Hire a car and you can go and explore this beautiful island, it's a shame not to make the most of it!!

If you only want to be in Portocolom and Cala Marçal you don't need a car, but if you want to make some excursions around the Island you will need it.

Check this website: www.portocolom.com and will find more information about Portocolom and different options to move around.
