Why renting a car in Mallorca is the best option for your family

Published April 18 2023

When coming to this island, we recommend you to rent a car. There are benefits to it that will make your visit a smoother and more enjoyable experience.


  • There are many towns and villages that form the island and some are not reachable by public transportation. With your own vehicle you have the freedom to visit whichever you prefer at your own schedule.
  • Some beautiful creeks are also not accessible by public transportation. With a car, you and your family will be able to visit every spot of the island.
  • When traveling with kids, having your own vehicle makes it more comfortable for long road trips – as some towns from Mallorca are around 1-2 hours away from the capital.
  • Invest more time on your family and the memories you make. To get to some destinations by bus or train will take you way considerably time than by car.
  • Towns are prepared for cars. The majority of creeks and beaches have accessible parking for visitors.
  • Having your vehicle will be better in case of an emergency. If something were to happen, some smaller towns may not have the proper facilities and you may have to go to some town or city - with your own transportation, it will be easier and faster to do so.


For all these reasons, we want to recommend you some car renting company options so you can make the best educated decision: Autos Mallorca, Europcar. All of these renting options have family cars available; the prices are very similar and great for a trip on a budget.
