Care hire


We're planning to visit Santo Tomas next year sometime and was wondering if there is a place to hire cars from locally? We're thinking of prehaps going to the www.aquacenter-menorca.com water park and maybe a couple of other day excursions.

Is it worth hiring a car, or better just using the bus?

Any help would be great - thanks.

There is a Top Question about car hire on the main island forum page - please read it carefully. In Santo Tomas there are a couple of places to hire and if you are going in high season and are worried about availability you could even prebook for a few days ( 3 days or less avoids the fuel charge issues mentioned in the Top Q.) midway through your holiday with someone like Owners Cars ( a no deposit & no cancellation fee deal) and then not take it up it if you find something better in the resort when you arrive. In my opinion having a car for a couple of days is an excellent idea as you can see much more of the island in that time than by public transport and avoid paying for expensive and sometimes over-rated excursions.

In addition to the normal bus service during July/August there is normally a free bus service from the resort into Es Migjorn one evening a week to their street market)

Tour operators will offer excursions to places like one of the water parks (there is one in Cala N'Boach too which is a nice resort IMHO than Cala N'Blanes) but please be aware that there have been many comments over the years that these are NOT very exciting for adults being more aimed at children .To get to any of those on the west coast you would need to get a bus from Santo Tomas into Ciutadella and then pick up another to the resort ( see bus route visa Top Questions on main island forum page)
