Ibiza is not a train-spotter's paradise. In fact there are no trains or even railway lines in Ibiza so you can leave that anorak behind.
In this section we include links to the relevant airlines that can sort your direct flights to Ibiza in addition to the well-worn routes from both the mainland and Mallorca. These latter routes become invaluable throughout the Winter when direct flights are usually restricted to Air Berlin, but these still require a stopover in Mallorca and another at a German destination.
However, if you manage to get here, regardless of the time of year, you'll need to know how to get from A to B and if B proves boring, how to get back again. On the other hand, if B stands for 'blinding' you'll need to know the transport options for the following day or even the day following the following day?
To this end we've included local bus timetables and the summer 'disco buses', which every civilised country should have. These run all over the island all through the night and play good music.
How can any country claim to be civilised before they've thought of this?
Taxi prices so that you know how much money to bring with you if you're allergic to buses or plan to go to strange, off the beaten track places?
There's a bit on car-hire too for those who've passed their driving tests and fancy a go on the wrong side of the road.
