Car Hire

Most visitors to Menorca choose to hire a car for the duration of their trip. Although Menorca is a small island a car is recommended especially if you want to explore its quieter and more remote beaches.

There are many car hire companies operating on the island and listed below are just three which we have personally used over the last few years. it should be noted that at busy times there can be a shortage of cars so it is imperative to book cars well in advance.

Due to competition between companies there has been downward pressure on car rental prices. As a result some providers have started to charge a daily insurance to cover the excess. This insurance can be quite high and not necessarily good value. It is optional but with an excess of between €600 and €900 an accident could prove to be costly. Guests may want to consider the purchase of an annual car hire excess policy from a company such as Insurance4carhire  Typically annual policies start at around £50 for the European area.

Autos Amigos

British owned and based in Cala’n Porter. They deliver cars to the airport where their rep meets clients in the arrivals hall to process paperwork. All insurance excesses are included in the quoted price. They have proved to be reliable.

Holiday Autos

Competitively priced internet based operation that uses local agents. It is not clear on their site from which company you will be picking the car up until the booking has been made and paid for. If it is not a company based at the airport you will be taken by bus to a nearby office. In which case a delay of 40 minutes to an hour should be factored in.

Owners Cars

Based at the airport and worth considering. We have used several times and have been happy with service provided.

Please Note

Nearly all companies demand that a credit card deposit is taken as security. A full driving licence must be shown. Vehicles drive on the right in Menorca.
