Ibiza Transportation and Transport system
• Taxi / Taxies
|In each town and in most tourist centres are taxi stands. Taxis can also easily be ordered by telephone (important Telephone Numbers)). In hotels one best asks at the reception.
For holiday houses outside the centres a rental car makes sense. To order a taxi to a remote holiday house is difficult, as the taxi driver in most cases does not speak English. Who has to drive more than 30 Km by taxi or rented a far away holiday house should hire an economic Rental Car. It is advisable to book the car in advance, because the local costs can be 30 % higher.

On the following days taxis are hard to get: at the airport in the high season Saturdays,
on the whole island on the 8th of August, at Easter, Christmas, and Closing Parties of the famous
The taxi price is measured by metre. For luggage pieces and the drive to the airport a set price is added.
For night revellers and Clubbers many Ibiza Clubs & Discotheques offer a refund of the taxi drive, if at least 4 people arrive by taxi and pay the normal entrance fee.Ibiza Clubs & Discotheken.
• Buses / Bus Connections
Ibiza in general has a good bus transport net with regular connections. Between the main towns and the tourist centres buses circulate every half hour. At the bus terminals in Santa Eulalia, San Antonio and in Ibiza town one can change buses to the smaller places or beaches, all can be reached several times daily by bus. More difficult are trips to far off villages inland like Santa Inés, or San Mateo. During the summer season the main lines drive from 7 am to 10 pm. In the night there are disco buses; from midnight to 6 am night revellers can travel from their holiday accommodation to discos and back. The normal bus service goes all year round, the disco buses drive only during the months June to September.
All buses are air-conditioned and economic, to be recommended. One can see large parts of the island from them. The costs are low, ca. 2 €. Time schedules are on the webpage Ibizabus.com. Those who like to travel by bus should print out the timetables beforehand, and bring them with.
• Ferries / Boats / Water taxis
Some places are connected by small boats or ferries, also called water taxis. These are beautiful, economic excursions. In this way one can get comfortably from Es Canar to Santa Eulalia, from Santa Eulalia to Ibiza town, from Talamanca to Ibiza town, from Playa d'en Bossa to Ses Salinas, and many more places. The little ferry starts from Marina Botafoch at the Café Sidney and docks at the harbour promenade of Ibiza's old town. Another useful connection exists between El Divino and the harbour promenade. Ask at the hotel reception or inform yourself about the departure times at the beaches and harbours.
To Formentera one can get from Santa Eulalia (high season: morning and midday),
from Ibiza town (whole year; several times daily), and from Playa d'en Bossa (high season: morning and midday).
• Rental Cars
Ibiza can be best discovered by car. Most roads are in good condition, but in spite of this we do recommend to rent a four wheel drive from Ibiza House for the exploration of the island. In far away places and holiday houses a rental car becomes a necessity.
There are many car rentals on Ibiza. The prices differ according to time of the year and rental time. One can get:
a basic car from 20 Euro / day/ low season / weekly price.
a basic car from 32, -€ / day / high season / weekly price.
minimum age 21 years
at least 2 years old driver licence
credit card or a deposit has to be made.
Tip: a rental car should be booked in advance,
1. the local costs can be 30 % higher
2. rental cars can be limited during high season.
