Hiring a car in Palma opens up parts of the city and the surrounding island that are otherwise out of reach to holidaymakers. Even with Majorca’s reliable peak-season bus network at your disposal, many of the beaches and rural landscapes on the fringes of the capital simply can’t be experienced without your own four wheels.

What age do I need to be to hire a vehicle in Palma?

Legally you need to be at least 18 years old to hire a vehicle in Palma. In practice, most car hire companies set their minimum age for drivers at 21, and you must also have held a full driving licence for at least a year. Some hire companies set a higher minimum age.

What do I need to hire a vehicle in Palma?

To hire a vehicle in Palma you need a full driving licence that you've had for at least a year, an additional proof of ID (say, your passport) and a payment card. Some hire companies may ask for two years on your driving licence. An International Driving Permit is not required if you hold a UK licence.

Do I need car hire excess insurance in Palma?

You're not legally obligated to have car hire excess insurance in Palma. Whether you may want it or not is a different matter. Without car hire excess insurance, you have to pay any excess in full if something happens to your hire car – and that can cost a lot of money. Car hire excess insurance usually means you pay a premium per day that covers you for that excess. Compare third-party policies online to get a good deal.
