Golf Holiday Marbella

You might think that car hire in Spain is not very essential for your holiday; but if you consider the driving distances in Western Europe's second largest country you will realize that a rental car is a MUST during your trip here.

The major port on Majorca and the capital of the Balearic Islands, the city of Palma de Mallorca is famous for its classy holidays as well as for bird watching. Palma de Mallorca Airport welcomes some 20 million people to the island every year.

Once you are out of the Son Sant Jean Airport located 8 km (5 miles) west of Palma de Mallorca you could easily drive off in your personally rented car to your exotic holiday destinations like Alcudia Cala d'or, Palma Nova, C'an Picafort, Sa Coma, Cala Millor Porto Colom and Magalluf.

The best and most efficient way to get out of the Mallorca airport to your destination is to book your transfer in advance. It is the most hassle free way of arranging a transfer into Palma city, and the popular resorts anywhere on the island. Prebook your airport transfer with a car hire company and most of them will have a driver/representative waiting for you at the arrivals and transfer you to your destination anywhere on the island. You can get an automated online quote from car hire companies by simply filling in an enquiry form on the car hire website.

Various categories of cars like family cars, automatic cars, MPV's etc are available for any number of people at Mallorca airport.

Payment: Since Cash payments are not always possible so don't forget to carry your credit card with you.
