Car rental in Mallorca is big business and with all the competition you can usually get a great deal. This is particularly the case in the off season as excessive summer demand can cause severe price hikes. Pre-booking rental cars in Mallorca is usually the cheapest way to go but before going ahead with your reservation ask yourself the big question … do you really need a car?
If you you decide that you do want to rent a car in Mallorca then we’d recommend that you get a quote from Economy Car Hire who tend to offer very good deals all year round with comprehensive insurance cover and an extra driver included at no extra cost.
If you’re on a package holiday then transport will be included from the airport so it’s pointless booking a car rental. Once you’re at your hotel you might decide that you fancy an excursion during your stay. If you take a look at what your hotel and local travel agencies offer you’ll see that trips to most attractions around the island are available so again you can avoid having a car. Also bear in mind that drink driving is a very serious offence in Spain so having a few beers whilst on a self drive excursion isn’t a good idea.
Having said all that you might be the type of traveller who likes to get off the beaten track and discover more of the island than the imeediate area near your resort has to offer. For instance the drive along the north-west coast of Mallorca is one of the most beautiful drives you’re ever likely to do. Unfortunately, the amount of traffic during the summer months destroys the experience so try to do this during an off-season holiday if possible.
