going to majorca at the end of august with ds, 1yr old and sisters family. would welcome any recommendations for decent car hire companies from palma airport as we are renting a private villa. seems that with some of the cheaper ones you have to collect the car from palma rather than the airport, which won't be very practical travelling with 3 liitle ones. any advice welcome

btw it's cheaper to hire 2 medium-sized cars than an MPV (in case you were thinking of doing that) and more flexible too.

thanks popsycal, any tips appreciated greatly! janh, drivespain was one that we looked at-good prices and sounds as though the car will be collected from aiport; a bit confused though as which they are part of have exactly same prices but you have to collect car from palma city ?!!

How odd, alibo! They are linked, but not the same company. Europa have their own desk at Malaga airport (not to be confused with Europcar who are there too).

We hired once at Easter, when the car was practically new, and once in October, when it was a bit tired and had a roofrack we hadn't asked for which was v annoying (whistling wind, higher fuel consumption) but the service is good, staff speak good English and are pleasant.

we used Six hire a lot - they were very good.

We've used a couple of times. They have always been reliable as well as the best quote. They act as consolidator for local car hire companies, so the actual company you end up with may vary - in Palma it was Europa.
