How to get cheap flights to Mallorca?
Do you want to know how to buy tickets to Mallorca at the best price? Here are some tips to help you secure the cheapest flight for your trip to the island:
- Use the flight search engine of Vueling, the best low cost airline, without surprises and knowing from the beginning what you are going to pay.
- Buy your ticket in advance. Mallorca offers entertainment all year round, but if you want to enjoy the sun and the beaches, the months between May and September are the best months to do so. As these are the busiest months, booking in advance is essential to get the cheapest ticket.
- If you can, be flexible in your dates. Flying a day or two before or after your planned date can secure you the best price, so if you haven’t yet locked in your working holiday… wait to do so once you’ve compared flight prices.
- Try different combinations, selecting the return ticket and then selecting them separately. Although it should be cheaper to buy your tickets together, this is not necessarily the case.
- In general, Mondays and Tuesdays are the cheapest days to buy airline tickets, although our experience tells us that this is not always the case.
- Travel in low season, as tickets become more expensive on peak travel days. As we mentioned, Mallorca can be enjoyed all year round, so if your priority is not to take advantage of its beaches and you prefer to enjoy other activities such as hiking or cycle touring, take the opportunity to look for tickets outside the summer season.

How to get from Palma airport to your destination
If you have finally decided to arriving to Mallorca by plane and you have bought your ticket, you should know that the airport is located 8 km from Palma and within easy reach of areas such as Playa de Palma or El Arenal, so if you are planning to go to these places, you will be able to do so using public transport.
However, if you are going to an area far from the capital, you should know that the connections are not very good, so our recommendation is that you hire a car to get to your hotel and then you can enjoy the island without any limitations.
When you arrive at the airport, you will find different options for transfer to your destination:
- Bus: as we were saying, if your idea is to travel to Palma, Playa de Palma or El Arenal, you can do so by bus. You will find the bus stop in the “Arrivals” area, just outside the airport. The blue buses are those that connect with the city (EMT line A1) and with the El Arenal area (EMT line A2). Both cost €5. In addition to these, during the summer season, you will also find other yellow buses run by the Aerotib company, which connect with other areas of the island (lines A11, A32, A42 and A51). If you choose this option, you can check here for more information.
- Taxi: also in “Arrivals”, next to the bus stop, you will find the taxi rank. The approximate cost of the journey to Palma from the airport is around €20. If you need to get to another part of the island, check the information in this article and ask the taxi driver before you get in, as the price will be considerably higher.
- Private transfer: another option for getting to your accommodation is to book a private transfer from the airport. It is a good alternative to taxis, comfortable and fast, but we would only recommend it if you have plans to explore Mallorca using another means of transport such as a bicycle, or because you know that once you are in your accommodation you are not going to leave the area.
- Car rental: renting a car is undoubtedly the best way to enjoy the island. Due to the limited timetables and frequency of public transport, if you want to get to know every corner of Mallorca and get away from the purely tourist areas, it is essential that you have a hire car.
🚗 If you finally decide to rent a car, compare prices and book your vehicle at the best price from here.
