More than 16 million annual foreign visitors. This data reflects Majorca’s indisputable power of attraction, one of the most coveted destinations in the Mediterranean to enjoy the good weather and endless jaw-dropping places: Palma, the insular capital; towns full of history, dreamy natural landscapes, beaches and impressive coves … If you also want to get closer to all these treasures in the most comfortable way, you cannot miss out on the numerous advantages of renting a car in Majorca.
This Balearic island has all kinds of first-class services and infrastructures, designed to meet the expectations of the most demanding travelers.

Hence, resorting to the comfort of rental cars in Majorca is always a safe bet.
In addition, this choice will not only put all the secrets of this fantastic destination at your disposal but will also provide you with great freedom of movement. You can visit it whenever you want and how you want, without ties and without depending on the Palma metro, train or bus timetables, or the combinations and connections to which you must resort to when trying to get where you want. This is something that can only be offered by car rental in Majorca.
In any case, the advantages of renting a car in Majorca go much further. If you still have doubts, we invite you to keep reading. You will be convinced!
Why rent a car in Majorca?
The 3,640 km² that Majorca comprises not only make it the largest of the Balearic Islands, but one of the largest in the Mediterranean too. This explains why the distances between their various locations can sometimes be too long. In fact, it has about 555 km of coastline, as well as a length of 100 km from north to south and 80 km from east to west. Thus, a rental car in Majorca is always a great ally to squeeze the most out of your weekend getaway (or the days you prefer).
In the case of the main urban centers, you can choose to travel by bus. However, as we have indicated previously, the timetables may not adapt to the requirements of your trip to Majorca and their frequency is sometimes insufficient. And when it comes to your holiday … Why waste time waiting when you could be sunbathing on a deserted cove or strolling around the rooms of the Almudaina Palace?
The same goes for trains in Majorca. You must consider that the island barely has an 85-kilometer-long railway system, which only covers some of the most important towns, such as Palma de Mallorca, Manacor, Inca or Sa Pobla. As for the metro, this service is limited to the island capital.
We must also mention that the price of buses and coaches in Majorca is not always that cheap. For example, the ticket from the center of Palma to the airport, equivalent to a 10-minute journey, costs 5 euros per person. If you have a family trip in mind, you just need to calculate and see that rental cars in Majorca can be a good way of saving up.
And since we are talking about economy, why not choose cars that will allow you to reduce fuel consumption and, therefore, your expenses? Specifically, we are thinking about hybrid cars, available within the ROIG Rent a Car fleet of rental cars in Majorca. These vehicles are much more efficient, since they combine an electric combustion engine with a traditional, internal combustion engine. This provides a double benefit, since it uses less gasoline and, at the same time, produces less carbon dioxide emissions than a conventional car, which helps to take care of the environment. All this without forgetting that its electric propulsion system improves the comfort of its occupants. Can you ask for more?
