Ibiza is an island that is full of great things to do. With only 41 km from end to end, you can cross it in less than an hour, so there is no excuse to see all its beautiful landscapes, discover each of its corners and take an unforgettable memory of your holiday.
However, not everyone wants to rent a car during their vacation, not to mention that many others cannot. We can drive a motorbike at 16 and a car at 18, but most car rental agencies do not rent cars to under 21s and it is also likely that the youngest drivers must have at least two years of license, have to pay a supplement and can not choose certain categories of cars.
So why is age discrimination?
Millennials probably don’t recognize that they drive like grandparents, but the DMV found that young people under the age of 24 have the same number of accidents as drivers over the age of 85. What’s more, teen drivers had more crashes than all 25-84 year olds combined.
Knowing these figures it is understandable that car rental agencies are reluctant to rent to under 25 year olds. If this is your case or you simply don’t want to spend every day of your holiday driving or looking for parking, you will need to know how to get around Ibiza without a car.
Whether you want to get to and from the airport, spend the day at a beach club or just enjoy the sunny weather exploring coves, you’ll need to plan how to get around. If you are thinking about how to get around the island of Ibiza without having to rent a car, look no further and follow the tips we tell you below.

Getting around the island by public bus or taxi
If the idea is still for others to do the driving, you can use Ibiza’s public transport to get around while you’re on holiday. You can find information on the official website about the route of each bus line, where to find the stops, how to buy tickets, etc. Whether you are heading to the marina of San Antonio or to the famous Comte cove, public buses are at your disposal. You must bear in mind that the service of urban bus transport of the island is something slow and little fluid and although it unites the main points of interest of the island you will have to have a lot of patience.
However, if you prefer to get to where you want to go at your leisure, you can always take a taxi. Look for one of the local stops or call him on the phone. Often these local taxi companies give a rather irregular service and there is often little availability of taxis for the high demand of customers, so do not be surprised if you call to order one and you have to wait.
On the other hand, one of the newest ways to get around the island in style is a disco bus. If you want to enjoy Ibiza’s nightlife, book your place and the Discobus will pick you up at your hotel or in the city centre and take you to a variety of bars and clubs. It is the most fun means of transport, but it has a very limited number of seats, so you will have to be very proactive and having to pick up clients from the different hotels you will lose a lot of time to enjoy your Ibizan night.
You will agree that Ibiza is not difficult to get around and you don’t need a rental car to do it! The most comfortable way is without a doubt the transfer service. What are you waiting for to try it?
