Hiring a Car at Mallorca Airport

A car is the most popular way to get to your accommodation and really get to know the beautiful island of Mallorca. Other alternatives include taxis, pre-booked private transfers, and buses.

Below you will find a comprehensive guide on everything you need to know about hiring a car in Mallorca in 2022.

The type of car you need largely depends on how many of you are travelling, the amount of luggage, your budget, and whereabouts on the island you are planning to go to. If you are still unsure about the last of those, make sure you check out our tips on places to visit in Mallorca further down this page!

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 get you around Mallorca perfectly.

If you’re travelling as a larger group with more luggage than the Kardashians however, a tiny three-door car isn’t going to result in a harmonious holiday. You would be better served to opt for a people carrier.

Don’t worry if you are unsure about the exact make or model you want, just having an idea of your requirements will help you choose the right car to hire at Mallorca Airport.

When to Book Your Mallorca Car Hire

Pre-book Online

It’s always best to pre-book your car hire in Mallorca online in advance, as you get access to a much greater range of cars and discounted early bird rates. Use the comparison tool above to compare prices and deals for all of the different car hire companies in Mallorca

When looking for your car rental, if a price seems to be way cheaper than any others be aware. If a price seems too good to be true, then more often than not it is. Read the terms and conditions thoroughly, there is a very real chance you will end up paying excessive petrol rates or the deal will come loaded with other “hidden” extras.

On arrival At Palma Airport

Even if you haven’t booked beforehand, you can hire a car at Palma de Mallorca airport from any of the numerous desks located in the arrivals hall.

It is worth noting though, that car rental prices are higher when you book on the same day compared to pre-booking in advance. So try to plan ahead to save yourself some money.

Search and book a car

Mallorca Car Hire Fuel Policies

Fuel policies differ, not only between rental companies but also between the type of rental contract you take out. Make sure you read the small print and weigh up your options. Any contract will be one of the following:

Full to full

This means you collect your rental car with a full tank and you return it with a full tank. This option is made very easy at Palma Airport as there are plenty of petrol stations close by. Just don’t forget to fill up before returning your car, otherwise, you’ll likely be charged the cost of a full tank, no matter how much fuel is still left in it. This option often works out cheapest overall, even though you may pay more to begin with.

Pre-purchase or full to empty

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, and you won’t be refunded for any petrol left in the tank. If you are not planning on doing much driving this probably isn’t the best option for you. It is worth considering if you are planning on driving a fair amount and/or you know you are going to be short of time when returning your car.

Pre-purchase with refund

Your hire car will have a full tank of petrol when you pick it up and you will have to pay the full cost for it. Again, the car hire company sets the price for fuel. When you return the car, however, the cost of the remaining fuel will be calculated and refunded to your card, minus an admin fee stipulated in the rental contract.

Covid-19 protocols at Mallorca Airport

Car hire companies at Palma Airport have put in place a range of new safety procedures based on the latest guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and local government. Although each car hire company has its own Covid-protocol, the measures taken are broadly the same – we have summarised these for you below.

Picking up your hire car

The following measures have been put in place at Palma Airport car hire desks and pick-up stations:

  • There are social distancing reminders (e.g. stickers on the floor) at car hire desks and offices, to help customers and employees keep a safe distance from others.
  • Protective screens have been fitted where needed.
  • All employees have been trained on health and safety standards, wear appropriate PPE (e.g. face masks and gloves) and practise good hand hygiene.
  • Enhanced, more frequent cleaning schedules are in place, especially of ‘high-touch areas’ (e.g. counters, door handles, payment facilities, etc.), which are cleaned and sanitised regularly.
  • Hand sanitisers are available for customers and employees.
  • One-way systems to direct the flow of customers have been put in place where appropriate and a limit to customer numbers at the desk or in the office has been introduced.
  • Car hire contracts and other relevant items of paperwork are available in digital format, although printed copies will be issued on request.

Changes to your plans

The car hire industry is doing everything possible to help customers who need to change an upcoming booking, or who fall ill during their rental.

  • Most Palma Airport car rental companies provide maximum flexibility with regards to changes to the car hire (e.g. time and location) and cancellation policies, with many offering free cancellation.
  • For detailed terms and conditions, please check with the relevant car hire company.

Using the shuttle bus

If you have chosen a car hire company located a short distance away from Palma de Mallorca Airport, you may be taken there on a shuttle bus. The following measures have been put in place to ensure that your journey is safe:

  • There is a strict limit on the number of passengers on each shuttle bus to or from the car hire office.
  • Passengers are provided with a hand sanitiser prior to boarding the bus.
  • Bus drivers wear appropriate PPE.
  • Every shuttle bus is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at the start of each day.
  • Between trips, the driver disinfects handles, seatbelts and other frequently touched surfaces on the bus.

How cars are cleaned

Robust cleaning protocols are in place to ensure that all hire cars at Palma Airport are Covid-safe:

  • Cars are disinfected after every rental, with special attention being paid to the parts that people touch the most: steering wheels, dashboards, radio dials, centre consoles, hand grips, cup holders and door handles (both inside and out), etc.
  • Extras such as child seats and GPS devices are removed from the hire car for cleaning and sanitising. They are then stored securely until the next rental.
  • After the vehicle has been cleaned according to the Covid-protocol, most Palma de Mallorca Airport car rental companies place a cleaning certificate in the car and seal the driver’s door with a sticker. An unbroken seal provides reassurance that no one has entered the vehicle since it was cleaned and sanitised.
  • Palma Airport car hire companies are happy for you to use your own cleaning/sanitising products if you wish to give the car an additional clean and wipe-over. However, please avoid any products containing bleach as these can damage parts of the car.
  • Any car that is suspected to have come in contact with a Covid-positive person is immediately quarantined.

Insurance

PMI Car Hire Insurance and Breakdown Cover

Most car rental companies include cover for damage and theft in the rental price and some even include basic breakdown cover. But remember, if you claim on the insurance, you will have to pay the excess. As always, check the small print so you know exactly where you stand and drive with caution.

(Video) Find CHEAP Rental Cars when Traveling! (Tips & Tricks)

When you collect your car, make sure you’ve got a credit card (not a debit card) on you. This card will be used to block the excess amount until you return the car. If and when you return the car without any issues, the block will be removed. If the car is damaged when you return in, some or all the money could be deducted.

You can usually get out of paying the excess by increasing your insurance level. When you pick up the rental car at Mallorca Airport, the company will probably try and upsell you enhanced insurance, but this is never the cheapest option. You can pay far less if you arrange Car Hire Excess Insurance in advance. You can get a whole year of excess insurance for around €40 per year. Obtain a quote online with iCarhireinsurance.com.

Extras

There are plenty of optional extras you can add to make your driving experience in Mallorca smoother and more comfortable. Most extras are charged per day and they can end up doubling the cost of your car rental! That’s why it’s worth thinking about whether you really need the extras and if there are alternatives, such as bringing your own child seat or using Google maps on your phone.

Available extras with Palma Airport car hire:

Sat nav/GPS

Child seat

Additional driver

WiFi

Places to visit in your hire car:
Centre de la Serra de Tramuntana – Raixa Country Estate

The Serra de Tramuntana is a stunning mountain range that forms the backbone of the island. It was recently awarded UNESCO world heritage status and it is not hard to see why. The brand-new visitors centre, set in the grounds of the beautiful Raixa country estate, is the perfect place to learn all about this remarkable region and its colourful history.

With the aid of modern technology, visitors will learn all about the region’s geology, geography, its flora and fauna as well as its cultural history. From the ancient technique for building dry stone walls to the remarkable irrigation systems that date back to when the Moors ruled the island, the information is presented in an entertaining and novel way that will delight visitors of all ages. Free audio guides in English, German, Spanish and Catalan provide visitors with additional information.

Entry to the centre is free of charge and is just a 20 to 30 minutes’ drive from Palma via the Ma-11, the main route from Palma to Soller.

Petrol Stations

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

Requirements for Hiring a Car at Palma de Mallorca Airport

A lot of car rental companies at Mallorca Airport won’t accept drivers under the age of 21. Anyone aged 21-25 can expect to be restricted to entry-level cars and be required to pay a young driver supplement. Senior driver supplements (generally over 70 years) also exist with age requirements differing from company to company. Some request senior drivers to take out additional insurance.

How to Cancel your Hire Car

Most companies let you cancel your car hire for free up to 24 hours before you’re due to pick it up. Others will charge a fee. Make sure you check the company’s cancellation policy on the rental agreement before you book to avoid any nasty surprises. Free cancellation policies are the way to go during this time of uncertainty.

Pick-up and Drop-off Times

By being clever with your pick-up and drop-off times, you can save yourself some cash. If you have your car for any amount of time within a 24-hour time period, you will be charged for a full day. So if you collect your car at 10 am on Monday and return it at 11 am on Tuesday, that works out at 25 hours and you’ll be charged for two days rental. Save money by arranging to return your car at least one hour earlier than you picked it up.

It’s also important to note that you’ll be charged extra for collecting your car during certain hours. Most companies charge a considerable fee for collections between 11 pm and 7 am, while some don’t let you pick your car up at all out of office hours. So be aware if you’re planning on arranging car hire when you land after a late flight, your options are going to be expensive and restricted.

Car Hire Usage Restrictions

Some hire companies or rental contracts impose mileage restrictions. Therefore, if you are planning on doing a lot of driving, you may want to double-check your mileage allowance.

If you are considering visiting one of the neighbouring islands, you will need to consult with your car hire company beforehand. Some car rental contracts do not permit the use of a ferry, others will allow it after prior notification and against an additional fee.

Please note that the use of a ferry without express permission from the car hire company will void any insurance cover you have.

Collecting your Car at Mallorca Airport

When it’s time to collect your car from Palma Airport, make sure you have your passport, credit card, driving licence, and booking confirmation (if you booked in advance) to hand in order to speed things up. If you’re from the UK, you’ll also need to obtain a code from the DVLA to show at the rental desk.

Resist the hard sell

If you’re happy with the conditions you booked online or negotiated in person, don’t let anyone bully you into paying for things you don’t want. You don’t need to take out pricey insurance policies or pay for fancy GPS equipment if you don’t want them. You may be offered a car upgrade for a small daily surcharge. This daily fee quickly adds up and could end up doubling the cost of your car rental.

Read the contract

Take the time to carefully read the rental contract before you sign it. Check that the figures are what you expect them to be, and no added extras have snuck in. A car rental contract is legally binding, so don’t sign it until you’re 100% happy.

Inspect the car at Mallorca Airport!

Before you drive away, inspect the car and get any damage noted on your paperwork. Take photos of damage in case you have to use them as evidence later. Check the boot for a warning triangle and high visibility jacket. If they’re not there, request them or get the lack of them noted on your paperwork, so you don’t end up being charged for losing them.

Key’n Go

Some companies now offer a contactless option for collection, which enables you to pick up the car key at the hire company’s Key’n Go self-service machine at Palma Airport. This method has several advantages:

  • skip the queues at the car hire desk
  • no paperwork to worry about or slow you down
  • no face-to-face contact with anyone from the car hire company

Driving in Mallorca

Speed limit in Mallorca

Speed is measured in kilometres per hour (KPH) in Mallorca, not miles. Here are the usual limits:

Road typeKPHMPH
Motorways12074
Main Roads10062
Minor Roads9055
Urban Areas5031

Alcohol limit

Mallorca has stricter laws than some European countries when it comes to driving under the influence. The blood alcohol limit for drivers and cyclists is 0.05%. New drivers with fewer than two years of experience and those driving vehicles with 8 or more passenger seats are restricted to a blood alcohol limit of 0.03%.

Obligatory breathalyser tests are carried out at random by police. If you refuse, your hire car will likely be taken off you and you could even be sent to prison. Driving under the influence of any illegal drug is totally prohibited.

Driving fines in Mallorca

If you’re stopped by police and issued a fine, you have to pay it immediately by cash or card. If you receive a fine on your hire car’s windscreen, after staying too long at a pay car park, however, you can waive it by paying a comparatively small fee at one of the nearby ticket machines as long as it is within 60 minutes from when the fine was issued. If it’s been over an hour, you’ll have to pay the full fine. Take a look at the ticket and pay the amount at one of the banks listed. You can almost always pay the fine online if you prefer.

Paying the fine quickly is always the best option. If you pay it within 20 days, the fine is reduced by 50%. If you wait until you return the car to pay the fee, the car rental company will likely add an admin fee onto the fine for their trouble.

Occasionally, people receive incorrect parking fines when using a hire car. To prevent the rental companies from filling up public car parks, the law states that they’re only allowed to be parked in these spaces when they’re being used by customers and not simply for storage. So if you think you were parked legally in a public car park and don’t deserve the fine you received, query it with the rental company. You might just be right! For more information on fines in Mallorca see here.

Mallorca parking rules

Here’s what you need to know about parking in Mallorca:

A single, unbroken yellow line on the road means no parking.

Signs with “vado permanente” or “prohibido estacionar” (usually found on garage doors) mean no parking.

(Video) Night

A blue line on the road means it’s a pay to park zone.

Disabled spaces, marked by a wheelchair symbol, can only be used by drivers with the blue permit badge or sticker.

If you park illegally in any of these situations, you run the risk of having your car towed away and facing a fine of around €150 to get it back.

Returning your car to Mallorca Airport

When you return your car to the airport, get the person checking the car to confirm it’s been returned without any damage and with the correct amount of petrol.

If you return your car out of hours when there are no staff members present, take a few photos (including one of the fuel gauge) to prove you returned it in good shape.

A few days after you return home, check your credit card statements to make sure the excess block has been removed and you haven’t been charged more than you expected to pay. If there are any unexpected charges, challenge them straight away with the rental company and back up your claim with your photo evidence.
