Puerto Pollenca Apartment/Puerto Pollensa Apartment
Mallorca - Balearics
Pine Walk - Illa Dor Location
Car Rental - Puerto Pollenca
The cheapest and simplest way of travelling
from the airport (especially if you are new to Mallorca) is now the
'Resort Hoppa'. This costs approximately £38.65 return for two compared
with approximately €73plus
a taxi. That
is €146 return.
Having used a number of Car Rental companies with varying success I gained some useful experiences which you may find helpful.
The first thing is that international companies can be the most expensive. Some offering what seems to be an excellent price but, when you arrive to collect the car, add massive insurance costs. So if you go this route make sure that your price really is all inclusive and that there are absolutely no extra charges.
One of the ploys is to make 'special' offers at very attractive prices and then load on the extras when the customer is most vulnerable i.e. without an easily available alternative.
I switched to a small local company who leave the car in the multi-storage car park at the airport for you to collect. You leave it in the same place when you return.
Unfortunately, being small they do not operate a 24 hour, 7 day a week back up service. So if you break down, as I did, you can be left to your own devices.
I then tried out Easycar Rentals which were great and their prices extremely competitive. They did have 24 hour, 7 day a week back up. There were a few niggles regarding cleaning the car after use and debates regarding who was responsible for small scratches, hitherto unnoticed, but overall I was happy with the deal. However they no longer exist.
Based on my own experiences here are a few possibilities for you. Bear in mind however that people change as do the quality of services so if these suggestions are to have a value I need feed back of good and bad experiences.
