taxi transfer

Anyone out there know how much I should pay for family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children) transfer from Mahon airport to Cala'n Forcat? And should I book in advance?

You cannot prebook " proper" taxis but there are always plenty on the rank outside arrivals.

Please check out the Top Question section on airport transfers over on the right on the main island forum page (but be aware that TQs are not accessible on mobile devices). Unfortunately Forcat is a long way from the airport so a taxi will be expensive although you can book spared or private transfers - see www.mymenorca.info/menorca/gettingabout.php for options.

We always use Resort Hopper very reliable and reasonably priced. As MenReg says Forcat is a fair distance from the airport so you will pay for that.

We paid €67 to Cala en Bosch on Friday which on the map doesn't look like it's a dissimilar distance from Cala n forcat so maybe similar price give or take a few euros? If your alternative is the holiday coach I'd say whatever the cost it's worth every penny (or cent)!

thanks very much that confirms what we was thinking. Was that just from a taxi outside the airport? (without booking)

Yes, there were plenty lined up outside. We asked the price before we set off and although it's metered the driver had a little price book. He was about €1 off his estimate!

Resort Hoppa is a booking agency but you may find last minute deals depending on dates - I don't know. Standard return transfers for four people to Cala N'Forcat are coming out at around 93€ on shuttle Menorca (http://www.shuttlemenorca.com/meTrans/ ) at the moment but with any shared transport you are probably going to be on a coach which is carrying the free transfer passengers from the packages so there may be a lot of hanging about and as Forcat is on the opposite side of the island, with drop of stops it could take a lot longer than the jump-in-a-taxi option
