Choosing car hire at Palma Airport
Hiring a car at Palma Airport is the best way to really get to know the island of Mallorca. To make your experience run as smoothly as possible, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide on everything you need to know about car hire in Mallorca.
Which type of car you hire largely depends on how many of you are travelling together, whether you’re travelling with luggage, your budget and where you plan to visit in Mallorca.
If you’ve got limited finances to work with and are travelling as a couple with only hand luggage, a Fiat 500 or something similar will do the trick perfectly.
But if you’re travelling as a large group with a lot of luggage, a tiny three-door car isn’t going to cut it. You don’t need to know exactly which model you want to hire. Just having an idea of your requirements will be enough to help you chose the right car hire at Palma Airport.
When to book your Mallorca car hire
It’s always best to book Mallorca car hire online in advance. This way, not only do you get to book your car hire at your own leisure when it suits you, but you also get access to a much greater range of cars and discounted early bird rates. You can also compare prices between different car hire companies using a price comparison website to guarantee you’re getting the best deal.
The phrase, “If it seems too good to be true, then it usually is” definitely applies when it comes to booking car rental online. If you see a price that seems too cheap to be real, have a thorough read of the terms and conditions before you click ‘pay’. Chances are there’s a clause that says you agree to pay their extortionate rates for petrol or something similar. Don’t get caught out!
On arrival At Palma Airport
If you completely forget about car hire or you jet off on a spontaneous trip, you can always hire your car directly from Palma airport after you land. There are plenty of desks in arrivals run by various operators. So whether you want something cheap and cheerful or luxurious and flash, someone will be able to help you.
Keep in mind that car rental rates are much higher when you book on the same day in person compared to online ahead of time. So whenever possible, always plan your car hire for Mallorca well in advance and book online to save money.
Mallorca car hire Fuel Policies
Fuel policies largely differ, not only between rental companies, but between the type of rental contract you take out, too. Gone are the days when your car rental price included a full tank of fuel. Now you’ve got to carefully read the fine print and weigh up your options. To help you make the right choice, here are the most common fuel policies.
This means you collect your rental car with a full tank and you return it with a full tank. These rules are easy to follow because there are plenty of service stations close to Palma Airport where you can fill up. Don’t make the mistake of forgetting to fill up, otherwise you’ll likely be charged the cost of a full tank, even if you were short just one litre. This option usually works out the cheapest overall, even though you may pay more to begin with.
A pre-purchase fuel policy means you have to buy a full tank of fuel when you collect your hire car from Mallorca airport. The car hire company has the final say in the cost of a tank of petrol and you have no say. With this option, you want to return the car with the tank as empty as possible, since you won’t get any refund for unused petrol. This definitely isn’t your best option for short-term car hire, but it can work out over a week or a fortnight if you’re going to be doing a lot of driving.
Your hire car will have a full tank of petrol when you pick it up from Palma Airport and you’ll have to pay the full cost for it. Again, the car hire company can charge what they like. When you return the car, the cost of the remaining fuel will be calculated and refunded to your card, minus an admin fee according to the rental contract. Because it’s impossible to know exactly how much petrol is in the tank, you might be left a little out of pocket with this option.
Near Palma de Mallorca Airport
If you need to return your car with a full tank, the closest petrol station is a Repsol garage close to the airport’s exit. To get there, you’ll need to drive past the car rental drop-off point, past departures, take the first exit on the right and continue along that road until you reach it.
Airport petrol stations are never the cheapest. So you’re better off filling up at one of these garages close to the airport instead:
Repsol, Camí de Son Fangos, 151 …………..……..3km away
Repsol, Camí de Can Pastilla, 35 ……………………5km away
BP, Carretera Palma – Porto Petro, Km 10 …….5km away
Collecting your car at Palma Airport
When it’s time to collect your car from Palma Airport, have your passport, credit card, driving license and booking confirmation (if you booked in advance) handy to speed things up. If you’re from the UK, you’ll also need to obtain a code from the DVLA and show it at the rental desk.
