Car Hire in Mallorca

Compare & Save - Prices from £9/day

Mallorca is less than a two-hour flight away from most parts of Europe. This accessibility, combined with the year-round attraction of Mediterranean island life, has made it one of the most popular tourist destinations on the continent. The well-heeled have been coming here for generations, with everyone from Boris Becker to the King of Spain owning lavish homes in the more upmarket areas. But Mallorca's rental market covers everyone, offering cheap bolt-holes to 20-something holidaymakers and luxury villas for wealthy families. There are more than 200 beaches to explore, many of them dotted with yacht charter companies and watersport activities. The island has a rich history and some marvellous architecture ranging from medieval castles to Modernist homes. Palma is known throughout Europe for having a vibrant nightlife offering fine dining experiences or clubbing, according to taste. Mallorca's various regions each have something different to offer, and car hire is advised if you want to get to know the island.

Things to do in Mallorca

Before flying out to Mallorca, research your options for car hire. Even if you want a lazy couple of days at the beach, having your own transport for at least some of the trip is essential. The sensational drive through the Tramuntana mountains offers plenty of photo ops and, if you work in a lunch break at one of the hillside restaurants, makes for a fine day out. Driving through the island capital Palma is less relaxing, so you might be better off leaving the car at home and discovering the city on an open-top bus tour (most operators provide tickets for around 15 Euros).

Top 3 Must See: Mallorca

  • Castell Del Rei

  • S'Albufera Natural Park

  • Caves D'Arta

An evening at Palma's Parc de la Mar, where films are screened outside the cathedral all summer, is an evening well spent. To really see Mallorca in all its glory, take a balloon trip over the island. Soaring peacefully at around a thousand feet, the views are obviously unbeatable, with Cabrera and Menorca visible on a clear day.
