Finding a good deal on car hire in Menorca
The Spanish island of Mallorca, one of
the Balearic Islands, is located in the Mediterranean Sea,
with Spain to its north and Algeria to its south. Another
name for this island is Majorca, because it is the "major" island
of the group. A nearby island, smaller than Majorca, is
therefore called Minorca, or Menorca.
Menorca has about 90,000 full-time residents, and of course
the population swells periodically as tourists arrive for
their fortnightly holidays (or two week vacations, depending
on from which country they come!). Natives of the island
speak Catalan, with Spanish as a second language, although
the immigrants to the island are typically Spanish-speaking
only. Those individuals who have much to do with tourists
- i.e. at car hire locations or in hotels, typically speak
English as well.
Minorca is a quiet and peaceful island -- when compared
to Majorca -- it doesn't have near the nightlife. Most
people come to Minorca to enjoy nature, to see the famous
black horses, and to admire the prehistoric stone monuments.
Quiet it may be, but Minorca does have
a wealth of automobiles. Although taxis seem to be the
transport of choice for many,
there are several car hire companies from which to choose.
If you want to search multiple car rental companies then

hire menorca will be bale to help.
Visitors to Minorca come in from aircraft from Spain and
from the UK. Vistiors also come via ferry from the Spanish
mainland or from Majorca.
Menorca may be a quiet island but that doesn't mean it
isn't popular. It is therefore best to arrange accomodations
and car hire before arriving on the island, at least during
the peak tourist seasons.
Most of Menorca's car hire companies are to be found at
the airport. Cars driven on the island are manuals rather
than automatics, for the most part. There are Fiat Pandas,
Lancia Ys, Opel Corsas, Skoda Fabias, Peogots, Ford Fiestas,
and so on.
When renting a car in Menorca, be aware that there can
be extra charges for baby seats or child car seats. Some
models may be equipped with GPS, and there would be an
extra charge for that as well.
Things to ask before you make your car hire are:
1) Are unlimited kilometers included, or is there a charge
for extra kilometers over a set limit?
2) What type of insurance is offered with the car - must
it be purchased? Is there a collision damage waiver, theft
protection, liability insurance, and so on.
3) What is the percentage of local taxes added on to the
car hire fee.
4) Is there a fee to have additional drivers added to the
rental agreement...and what happens if there's an accident
and the dirver was not on the rental car agreement?
5) What kind of driver's licence is necessary to drive
As with all car hire companies anywhere in the world (well,
all well-run car hire companies!), drivers receive a full
tank of petrol and are expected to return the car with
a full tank of petrol . If it is necessary for the car
hire company to replenish the tank, the petrol will typically
cost more than if it had been purchased from a petrol station
