car rental

Does anyone know of a cheap car rental company in majorca.iv looked online but they all seem to have hidden extras and what looks like 120 pound for the week quickly turns into 200+

any help would be appreciated.

We used this company last year:

https://www.visioncar.es/web/oficinas/

We went through a broker, but this year we are booking direct with them due to a glitch on the broker site (It's trying to charge us the August rate for our full 10 day hire, despite only 1 day being in August!)

The price is very cheap, and includes a free additional driver - also all their compact cars are diesel, so the full tank lasted 10 days for us, despite doing alot of mileage. They do charge for the full tank of fuel which will be around 80 euros, but that's pretty standard in Majorca.

To pick it up, you go to the desk on the 4th floor of the airport carpark (see the link above). To drop it off, you leave it in the same place with the keys in the boot! Last year was very very susicious of this, but after the owner of the broker contacted us personally, I was reassured that they were honest and we had no problems. All very straightforward and seriously cheap!

The insurance excess is low, but if you really want to be covered against any excess, then I'd recommend this:

https:/…hire-car-hire-excess.aspx

It's alot cheaper than you'll pay direct with any car hire company!

A lot of people on this site will recommend avoiding the cheap companies and quite rightly so due to the number of scams and cowboys, but from personal experience visioncar are honest, convenient and VERY cheap!

Btw - they aren't too competitive in high season, but as soon as you hit September, they're the cheapest. From the prices you quoted I presume you're not looking in August.

I've just booked excess and windscreen/tyre cover and did a quick shop around beforehand. These guys are actually cheaper than the link I gave above:

The site doesn't look too great, but the cover is through AXA just the same as the other providers so I wouldn't worry. It's £2 per day and covers as many drivers as you have on the hire agreement.

Works fine on my PC and my browser and anti virus software catches everything. They also have a thawte certificate listed on the site:
