About Car Rental at Palma De Mallorca Airport

If you have never visited Spain, it would be easy to assume that all towns and cities within the country are the same, but this is not the case. Spain has become a popular holiday destination for many reasons. Some adore the warm and welcoming nature of the locals, while others like to marvel at the many iconic landmarks situated throughout Spain.

Mallorca is renowned for beautiful coastlines, stunning architecture, and a wide range of luxurious beaches, add to this the Mediterranean climate, and it is clear why Mallorca is one of the most popular destinations.

Palma De Mallorca Airport is often cited as the gateway to the inspiring island, and many feel the infectious fun and relaxing atmosphere as soon as they land. Today, the airport handles as many as 6 million passengers, and is the base for Air Europa. There are also several other carriers who use the airport, including EasyJet, Jet2.com, Vueling and Rylanair.

Travelling in Mallorca is often part of the experience, which is why so many people take advantage of a car rental during their stay.

Car Rental Services at Palma De Mallorca Airport

One of the most convenient ways to enjoy Mallorca is to ensure you take advantage of a car rental as soon as you land. Not only does this allow you to enjoy the wondrous scenery that can be experienced on the island, but also ensures you have options available when travelling during your stay.

There are several car rental companies available in Palma De Mallorca:

Hertz

Avis

Enterprise

Goldcar

Europcar

Sixt

Record Go All have service desks situated in the airport, and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful, meaning even last-minute bookings are simple and straightforward. All care rental firms will offer some form of insurance, but it is important to consider the options available before going ahead with car rental. Although it is understandable why some people opt for the cheapest quote, it may not always be the most suitable.

Car Rental Services in Mallorca

Those using public transport can travel from Palma De Mallorca Airport to Intermodal Station using the EMT Bus, which operates every 15 minutes until 9.00 p.m. before transitioning to the half hourly service.

Some may want to travel to their destination before using a car rental, and this can be arranged with one of the many service providers located on the island.

Although every car rental company offers a wide range of options, planning ensures you have access to a vehicle that meets your requirements. The busier times on the island could mean that some preferred vehicles are pre booked. While many providers aim to meet your needs, pre-planning can help offer peace of mind. All car rental companies are recognized professionals in the industry, so finding a vehicle that suits your needs and budget should not be an issue. Many find that arranging their car rental before leaving for Mallorca allows for a seamless experience when travelling from Palma De Mallorca Airport.

Driving in Mallorca

Although driving in Mallorca is relatively stress-free, there are still some factors to consider. The following is an overview of the things you need to be mindful of when driving in Mallorca:

Vehicles drive on the right side of the road.

The left lane of the motorway is used for overtaking.

Cars will join the motorway at the same point as they exit.

It is vital that you have proof of insurance for the vehicle you are driving. There are also common laws that are the same as driving at home, such as zero tolerance regarding drinking and driving, and the improper use of a mobile phone when driving.

Top Road Trips from Palma De Mallorca

When exploring Mallorca in a rental car, we recommend taking a trip to Alcudia Old Town. Situated on the other side of the island, this medieval town has been perfectly preserved by walls that were originally built to defend itself against pirates in the Middle Ages. Alcudia is the old capital of Majorca, and is full of ruins and cobblestone alleys which are extremely Insta-worthy. To get here, it is necessary you have a car, or book a taxi in advance.

Can You Get Around Malaga Without a Car?
One of the reasons why Malaga is so popular with tourists is because many attractions are accessible by foot. Malaga also has an efficient public transport system and the Malaga bus service is operated by EMT, which offers one-off tickets and multi-travel cards. Along with this, there is also the option of travelling via train, which has connections to many popular destinations within Malaga. A two-line metro system is also available, which starts at Maria Zambrano RENFE train station.

If you want to enjoy the local scenery without having to make various stops, then there are also various ‘hop on - hop off’ buses that offer this service, although they can be busy during the hotter months.

Those wanting to explore the Malaga province will find that car rental is beneficial, far easier, and can help make some savings when planning activities and day trips.

Frequently asked questions about car rental in Palma De Mallorca

Where is the Best Area to Stay in Mallorca?
One of the most popular towns in Mallorca is Puerto Pollensa. The town offers scenic vires and historic architecture, complemented with beautiful beaches, fabulous bars, and eateries. The wide range of activities and classic architecture have led many holidaymakers to return to the island time and time again.

When is the Best Time to Visit Mallorca?
Many people find Mallorca is at its best during the warmer climates. The temperatures are at their highest between March and May, and with some planning, you could also avoid the influx of tourists. The months between June and September are often the busiest times on the islands, so anyone planning to visit during this time is advised to secure their accommodation, activities, and car rental as soon as possible.

When Is the Cheapest Time to Visit Mallorca?
Those wanting to save money when visiting the fabulous island of Mallorca will find there is still plenty to enjoy when booking between September and November. There may be less activities than the peak season, but you can often enjoy less crowds, cheaper flights and better deals regarding car rentals.

Can You Get Around Mallorca Without a Car?
How easy it is to travel around Mallorca by public transport depends on your plans during your stay. There is a metro system in Palma, as well as many train and bus networks located on the island, which, for the most part, are efficient. However, some bus services can have a limited service, especially during the weekend. As such, those wanting to enjoy the scenery during the evening will need to plan ahead before their visit.

The island of Mallorca is small, and the public transport available does an excellent job of allowing you to enjoy the island and its many facilities. However, those wanting to explore areas off the beaten track or simply enjoy a sense of freedom will find that car rental is the preferred mode of transport, and can be more cost-effective in most instances.

The airport is highly oraganised and easy to access, but I would suggest you arrive early when you fly out because the airport is bigger than the standard regional airport and houses nice shops!

The layout, design, of the rental cars booths in the airport are so logical. This was my first time seeing a double sided booth and it is extremely practical and secure. There was more seating, as well as vending machines on the other side so the entire family or party does not have to wait inside the secured restricted access. They can exit and see the rental occur from the other side. There is a lot to experience on Mallorca and with a personal vehicle can leave Palma and take a different route each day to explore the island. Trips to Valldemossa & Deia, Soller & Port de Soller, Inca & Cap de Formentor, Monte Cristo & Randa all offer beautiful scenery. It is best to plan to start the day early and plan your trip according to where you want to see the sunset. There are many breathtaking views from pull-off points and hidden restaurants. The Bellver Castle ruins are also beautiful offering breathtaking views of Palma and Le Seu and the Palma boardwalk has rock outcroppings which allow you to get even closer to the water.

Great Time of the year weather was fantastic. When to Sóller and went on the train and tram. Beautiful old tram and train from the early 1900s. Drove up to Valldemossa very pretty village, with tree lined streets. Very old world. Palma was busy and hard to park. The market in Palma was well worth the visit. Loved having the car to get to all these great places.

Go visit many of the incredible 'hidden' beaches off the grid, but do so very early in the morning (be there between 7 and 8). Then you will have the beach for yourself and you will be able to take great pictures. any time after 10am, they all fill up with tourists and get crowded.

The northwest coast of Mallorca is an amazing drive. Small villages from Soller, Deia, Valldemossa, Banyalbufar, and Estellencs are wonderful to visit. And the landscape is awe inspiring. The infrastructure in impressive, the architecture incredibly well maintained, and the restaurants even in the smallest villages deliver an impressive high quality cuisine. On this coast you will find largely rocky beaches, with the fantastic backdrop of the mountains. Head northwest for a private swim in wild nature surroundings. Or simply pack a cooler for the best picnic lunch imaginable.

Nice airport but very limited eating before you go through to the gate. Only sandwiches etc or a German sausage bar. Once through the gate options vary, but closure times are early. Don't expect to eat well if you have a late flight. Reasonable shopping. Consider booking on-site car hire to avoid queues off-site at cheaper options.

If you are travelling as a couple, one of you should get straight to the car hire desk. Get a turn ticket even before you get your baggage. Tell others that they might need a ticket also. Kindness is good for the soul! Also, think about getting annual hire car insurance cover before you leave Britain. It may work out a lot cheaper than getting the add-on insurance at the desk. When driving in Mallorca, you are likely to come across many cyclists, some of whom are in "race" mode. Give them plenty of room, as the Mallorcans do. You don't want any scratches on that hire car!

The old town of Palma is fantastic. The public bus lines are well covering the island and especially the Palma area. The scenery roads (well marked in the map) are worth driving. The views are beautiful and the roads mainly on good condition. Soller is a good place to visit and easy to reach. Formentera in the north is fantastic, but there you need a full day to get the best out of it. The advise to turn the car side mirrors in is absolutely to be followed.

Palma airport has very long ways to walk, there are a lot of ups and downs espcially when you come from the parking deck. So calculate enough time before departure. 2hours or more. We even got stuck in the elevator for 20 min until help came. In Palma try the coffee factory near placa mallor:various good coffee types, nice waitors and interesting toilettes. The arabic baths in the old town is only worth the 2.50€ fee if you want to sit in the yard for a rest or a picnic.
