Taxis - Good to Know
There are no private taxi companies on Menorca only Taxis licensed for a particular area. Taxis on Menorca are all painted white and use meters which are visible ( sometimes siplayed in rear view mirror. They will show a min. price at start plus the Tarifa ( 3 or 4 = current rate ). At the airport all fares are posted on a column at main arrivals bagge hall exit near the Tourist Information Office. The fiare are re-negogiacted each each year but only go up by a little.
Taxi stands are called Paradas de Taxi
Fares are regulated based on distance, though journeys crossing a boundary into another operating area may incur an extra charge. Check price before starting off. Your driver should be able to give a good idea.
Mahon Airport's Taxi rank is immediately outside arrivals on the ground floor and there are usually plenty, with a few minutes wait at peak times.
Taxi on demand = Radio Taxis
Taxis can be requested by telephone - this is known as 'Radio Taxi' and there is normally a supplement for this ( see price tables ) - a single tel. number ( +34 971 367 111 ) which connects you to english speaking service . You state your location and where to be picked up from.
Tip Note radio taxi is is a central service based in Madrid. The people do not know Menorca so be sure of your location / destination first and they will not really know the prices.
