Mallorca Car Hire, Rental & Insurance
Majorca | Spain
Whenever you are looking for the cheapest car hire in Mallorca, or anywhere for that matter, you should always make use of comparison websites, just like when you are looking for the cheapest flights. Use several of them and then compare them against each other. I use and recommend CarRentals and CarHireMarket.

Carrentals.co.uk is the comparison search engine for luxury, executive and budget car hire. They make searching for car hire convenient and easy by searching over 50 car hire companies for you.

Make sure you are aware of the extra charges some companies impose. For instance with some, if you hire the car for more than 3 days, they will charge you for a full tank of petrol and no matter how much you use you don't receive any refund. That's a lot of fuel to get through in say 4 days! Additional drivers can also incur an extra charge but some allow one extra for free.
Mallorca car hire companies often include sat nav, air conditioning, free insurance (but not necessarily fully comprehensive), unlimited mileage, insurance waivers, additional drivers, free fuel, baby / child seats and a choice of automatic or manual drive, but check the details before you pay.
Excess Car Hire Insurance - Beware!
If you are a cautious traveller and always cover yourself with the necessary insurance, beware of the excess on your car hire insurance policy. The excess payments on most hire car insurance policies are often over £500 and can be as high as £1500. The costs involved with insuring a car against these excess car rental payments are expensive, at least £9 a day from most companies and often don’t cover the parts that are most likely to get damaged like the windows, tyres and roof.
iCarHireInsurance.com is an innovative company that gives customers peace of mind and can save them money by protecting customers from these excess insurance payments. It does cover parts like windows, tyres and the roof, and is at a very affordable price from £2.99 a day and £39.99 a year. Their ‘Excess Europe’ and ‘Excess Worldwide’ policies are great value, simple and easy to use, and designed to fit the specific needs to each customer, whether it's daily single-trip or annual multi-trip deals.
