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. A people carrier might be better for you. 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 best to book Mallorca car hire online in advance as you get access to a much greater range of cars and discounted early bird rates. Compare prices between different car hire companies using price comparison to guarantee you’re getting the best deal.
The phrase, “If it seems too good to be true, then it usually is” applies when it comes to booking car rental. If you see a price that seems too cheap to be real, have a read of the terms and conditions. Chances are there’s a clause that says you agree to pay excessive rates for petrol or the likes.
On arrival At Palma Airport
You can hire a car directly from Palma airport without having pre-booked, after you land. There are plenty of desks in arrivals run by various operators.
Keep in mind that car rental prices are higher when you book on the same day compared to pre-booking ahead of time. So try to plan ahead and save money.
Mallorca Car Hire Fuel Policies
Fuel policies differ, not only between rental companies, but also between the type of rental contract you take out. Carefully read the finer print and weigh up your options.
This means you collect your rental car with a full tank and you return it with a full tank. Fairly easy at Palma Airport as there are plenty of petrol stations close by. Just don’t forget to fill up, otherwise you’ll likely be charged the cost of a full tank, even if you’re only a bit short of a tank. This option can work out cheapest overall, even though you may pay more to begin with.
With a pre-purchase fuel policy you buy a full tank of fuel when you collect your rental. The car hire company dictates the price of the fuel. You won’t get any refund for unused petrol. It’s not your best option if you’re not going to use the car much, but it might work out ok if you’re going to be doing a lot of driving and don’t want to be filling up on return.
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 sets the price fo fuel. 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.
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 service stations are never the cheapest. So you’re better off filling up at one of these service stations 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.
