Top tips for hiring a car in Balearic Islands

  • The best airport to make your destination if traveling to the Balearic Islands is Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI). It’s the largest and busiest airport in the archipelago. Different car rental agencies are available on site, including Avis, Budget, Alamo, Enterprise, National, Goldcar, InterRent, Europcar, SIXT, Record Go, Hertz, and Thrifty. You can also fly into Mahón Menorca Airport (MAH) or Ibiza Airport (IBZ), other major airports in the archipelago with several car rental agencies on site.
  • The state of roads in the Balearic Islands is generally good, but not excellent. Most roads are paved and well-maintained, but you’ll come across certain sections that need improvement. Islands in the archipelago are not that huge, so driving distances are short. Narrow, winding roads are common in the Balearic Islands, particularly Mallorca. They can be challenging to navigate, especially if you’re new to the region. Observe caution when driving through such sections.
  • A convertible is the best car option with which to explore the Balearic Islands, especially the scenic routes. You’ll enjoy unobstructed views of the coastline and beautiful surroundings. Consider an SUV rental if you plan to visit off-road destinations in the archipelago. An SUV offers high-ground clearance and can easily navigate rugged terrains. If you’re exploring the region as a group and have more luggage, a minivan rental or compact car would be the perfect choice.
  • Traffic can get busy in the Balearic Islands, especially on main islands like Mallorca, Ibiza, and Menorca. The busiest times for rush hour in the archipelago are from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Most tourists flock to the Balearic Islands between June and September, so traffic is usually heavy on major roads on the islands during this period. If you plan to drive your rental car on the islands during peak rush hour or tourist season, plan your trip accordingly to avoid getting caught up in rush hour traffic.
