Confused!! - private transfer or just use taxi from airport

Hi can anybody help me out here? Is it cheaper to get a taxi from the "rank" at Mahon airport to Son Bou or is a private booked transfer cheaper. Being quoted 95 euros return with Suntransfers.

Thanks for any replies :-)

@madmurd Mad you'd have to be! ;-)

two problems: back in UK means paying in £s no exchange rate benefit . 2 operator 'unknown' using a a local private transfer , quote is around 86 Eur ( at 2015 rates £65 or less for return trip )

Airport Taxis even cheaper,more comfortable

I do not understand what you are confused about MADMURD75. Tom's advice is quite simple - calculated according to current exchange rates, taking a taxi costing approx. 30 Euros each way to Son Bou is a lot cheaper than you are saying you have been quoted in £ sterling

This thread is 8 or 9 months old, why resurrect it? Surely any advice is wasted on the OP by now.

Good point Jon, but MADMURD75 resurrected it yesterday when he asked what he did.

I hope he now is happier with the answer he got from Tom T.

A simple answer of €? Each way would have been sufficient.

I didn't understand what the whole point of the reply was. I understand £-€ etc.

Yes it's a old thread but it was near the top so I thought I'd ask the question again myself for 2015 as I'm travelling there in August.

So how much is it each way from the airport to the Valentin hotel

Thank you to all involved
