The taxi service is one of the oldest trades in Ibiza and remains one of the most widely used and sought-after ways of getting around the island. However, getting yourself a cab can be quite a challenge, depending on the time of day and your exact location.
The first thing you need to know is that you can’t hail down a cab on the street in Ibiza. You can try, but they won’t pull over. So then, how do you get a taxi in Ibiza? You’ll have to find the closest taxi rank and wait for one there. There’s a rank just in front of the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel and the concierge service can also make arrangements to get you a cab at any time.
If you’ve gone on a day trip to Cala Bassa, Cala Conta or any of the island’s other amazing beaches and you want to get back to the hotel in time to enjoy your favourite event at Ushuaïa Ibiza, call one of these numbers and they’ll come and pick you up.

Ibiza’s taxi fares are much like any other tourist city in Spain. There is an initial charge of €3.25 and then a day-time tariff of €0.98 per kilometre, applicable from 7 am to 9 pm, and a night-time tariff of €1.20 per kilometre, from 9 pm to 7 am. On Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays, the tariff is also €1.20 per kilometre. The journey between the airport and Playa d’en Bossa or Ibiza city usually comes in somewhere between €11 and €15, depending on traffic and the time of day.
Watch out though! If you call a taxi and make the driver wait, you will be charged at a rate of €17.61 per hour during the day, and €21.57 at night. Demand for taxis in Ibiza is huge, so try not to waste their time. Think of all those other poor sods waiting for a cab to a David Guetta session at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel!
Most taxis in Ibiza will accept credit or debit cards. However, if you’re not carrying cash and you need confirm this, check with the driver beforehand or ask when you book over the phone. It’s also no harm in asking what the estimated fare will be for your journey.
The service operates 24 hours a day -you decide when and where you want to go! And if you’d rather rent a car to get around, at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel you can request the airport transfer service or hire the new Smart Ushuaïa Limited Edition 2018.
