CarHireExtra.co.uk compares the prices of well-known car hire companies in Spain, including the following location: Mallorca Airport
Palma de Mallorca Airport is just five miles east of the city of Palma. Palma is the capital of Majorca, the largest of Spain's Balearic Islands. This group of islands is located in the Mediterranean Sea. Majorca has been attracting package tourists from the UK, Germany and Ireland since the 1950s. The island's hot and sunny summers continue to attract visitors to the present day.
Presently, Palma itself is becoming a favourite place for independent travellers on city breaks. Many of these guests use budget carriers such as Air Berlin, Easyjet and Ryanair. On arrival, it's possible to take an EMT bus to Palma city centre. Line 1 departs from the airport every 15 minutes.
However, many independent travellers find that car hire in Palma Airport enables them to get to other towns across the island. In the city itself, Palma's bus service is a perfectly acceptable way to get around. Visitors mustn't miss Palma's two best sites; Bellver Castle and the immense Palma Cathedral.
There are eight providers of cheap car hire in Palma Airport. Multinationals such as Avis and Hertz offer car rental in Palma Airport, as does the Spanish car hire giant, Atesa. In addition, Palma Airport also has the usual shops, restaurants and banking services.
Palma Airport is located near to the Palma-Santanyi motorway (Ma-19) from which travellers can easily access the capital, as well as other resorts in the Bay of Palma. Holidaymakers heading to Alcudia should take the Ma-13. Alcudia is a family-orientated resort in the far north of the island.
