After all the problems we had with Goldcar last February I hired a car from Sixt 3 weeks ago and from the initial on line contact to getting home their service was fantastic.
On arrival at Palma we went to their desk and was given a choice of cars and a choice of petrol Full to Empty or Full to Full.Total of about 3 minutes at the desk!
We chose a Fiesta and was given a paper with a bar code which we scanned at a machine in the car park which produced the key!
The car was spotless inside and out with all the safety gear like hi vis jacket, first aid kit and warning triangle.
On return 2 weeks later you just park up the car at the Sixt area and drop off the key in a box but as it happened one of the staff was there and asked if we were happy with the car and any problems with it. We had none.
They were certainly the best car hire firm we have come across in the 20 or so years we have been hiring.
They did not try and force us to pay for any extras but did offer a Sat Nav if we wanted it. We had our own.
Since returning home they have sent us a card with our details on to make hireing from them again even quicker.
It is nice to say something good on this forum about car hire!!!!!
As for the holiday we stayed once again at Sa Coma (self catering)and it was lovely and quiet and even though it was end of November/beginning of December there was still plenty of places to eat around Cala Millor and elsewhere and still plenty of 'tourist' shops open.
Much of the time we more or less had the roads to ourselves and as I have said before the roads out there are SUPERB!
We had 1 day of rain but that was all!
All very civilised and only 2 hours away!!!
