Meander through the majestic Islas Baleares with a Mallorca rental car

Mallorca is one of the most beautiful spots in Spain and all of Europe. From towering cathedrals to gorgeous soft sand beaches, and delicious local food, it’s no wonder why Mallorca is booming with tourism. The capital city of Mallorca, Palma, is also a lively hotspot that boasts a ton of local activities, nightclubs, and exciting attractions, so no matter what you like to do, you’ll definitely have lots of fun. So hop in your Mallorca car rental and explore this beautiful island.

Mallorca Airport and your car rentals

While it's not as busy as Milan Airport in Italy, Aeropuerto de Palma de Mallorca, or Mallorca Airport for short, is the third busiest one in Spain. The airport is just a 10-minute drive or 8km from Palma (the main hub and capital city).  

With just one terminal, Palma de Mallorca Airport is an easy-to-navigate airport with many retail stores, restaurants, cafés, and free WiFI throughout the airport. 

When you’re ready to pick up your rental car, just make your way to the car hire counters found in the arrival's hall. From there, you can transact and collect your keys from your chosen provider.

If you want to make your way to the city, simply take the “Autopista de Levante” and look for the many signs pointing to Palma. There are also car rental companies with a Palma city center office if you wish to rent a car from there.

Tips for driving your Mallorca car rental

Whether it’s your first time driving your car hire in Spain or not, things are just a little different in Mallorca, so we recommend reviewing these tips:  

  • Unlike driving a rental car in the UK, you must always drive on the right side of the road. 
  • It’s illegal to drive with flip-flops. 
  • Locals tend to be impatient drivers. Don’t take it personally, but also check your mirrors more regularly as drivers here more frequently overtake. 
  • National speed limits are 120 km/h on dual carriageways and motorways, 90 km/h on all other roads, and 30 km/h in urban areas. 
  • In case of accident - emergency number: 112

The car was perfect for the weekend, but there was no counter at the airport for the Dollar car company I had rented....bit stressful. I needed to call to find out that I needed to go to the Hertz counter. Otherwise I would recommend the GoSee car rental experience.
