How To Get Away If You Have Just One Day
Travel is rebellion in its purest form” – The Trip Rebel Manifesto
Got the travel bug, but not a lot of time or money for a big, grand tour? Well, consider taking a day away from Mallorca and head to our island neighbours on beautiful Menorca!
Who Gets You There? #
There are three ferry operators travelling between Mallorca and Menorca, totalling 42 crossings a week.
Why Take the Ferry? #
You may be thinking, “Why take the ferry when flights are so cheap?”
With the ferry, you can take your car, so exploration is possible, and for me, my husband, our daughter and our car, the total cost came in at just over €100 on Balearia, including an upgraded seat option. Trasmediterranea was a bit higher for the same upgrades and dates, costing about €170.
As residents of the Balearic Islands, we enjoy a whopping local discount on travel within Spain, so this is one reason the cost is so low. If you are not currently a resident, the price goes up to about €200 on Balearia and €400 for Trasmediterranea for the same tickets and options.
Flights for three people plus car hire would total far more than even the highest priced ferry option, with the lowest cost morning departure costing €66 per person and the late return coming in at €136 per person. Plus, you’d still need a car, and not only does that cost, it’s also a time suck as anyone who has ever stood in the endless queues at the airport knows.
So next time you need a break, book a ticket and jump on the ferry to Menorca. You’ll be glad you did!
