Yes, another car hire question about Palma!
I am going to Mallorca from Scotland with my wife and two friends. We are staying for 10 days in July. We are looking to hire something Ford Focus sized for the duration of our stay (because our return flight departs later than our arrival flight, our hire works out to 11 days)
So having read the forums on here, I am extremely wary of who to hire a car from. I would rather pick the car up at the airport, so I have been looking at some of the companies listed on the Palma de Mallorca airport website.
A lot of you recommend Sixt, but quite frankly they want stupid money. (£570). Same goes for Avis (£536) and Hertz (£544).
Then I looked at Enterprise. Their price for the duration was £294. Great thinks me, until I go back to the enterprise website and it's suddenly gone up to £598. Then I spotted the difference: The £294 price was given by www.enterprise.es whereas if you go to www.enterprise.co.uk it's £598. Can anyone explain why? And does anyone know if I will be able to book through the spanish enterprise website?
Now, I know the cheaper firms have a reputation for rip-off insurance waivers, and charging extra for fuel. To be honest, the fuel cost doesn't bother me. Frankly, I would prefer to pay that bit extra for the fuel, to then not have the worry of refuelling near the airport. The insurance waivers do bother me though - especially with stories of those who didn't take them being charged for pre-existing damage. So if you guys can recommend any other (reasonably priced!) car hire firms we can try, I'd be grateful.
