- The best car to hire depends on why you want the car in the first place.

- If you have a small family then a saloon car, a hatchback or an estate would work – plenty of space in the back to store all the luggage and enough power to plan a longer journey.
- If your journey involves more passengers, requires a bit more comfort and more engine power then an SUV, MPV or people carrier would be your best choice.

Where is Palma Airport, Mallorca
Palma in Majorca (Balearic Islands of Spain) should not be confused with La Palma which is one of the Canary Islands.
Palma de Mallorca Airport is one of the Europe’s busiest, particularly during the summer holidays, when hundreds of thousands of mainly English and German tourists flock to Spain to enjoy sun and fun at the beaches along the Spanish coastline. The months between June to September are the peak tourist season. In 2017 Palma de Mallorca airport handled some 27.9 million passengers and this number is envisaged to rise in the coming years. Already Palma Airport, Majorca ranks as the third largest airport in Spain, only the airports of Madrid and Barcelona are busier.
Palma Mallorca Airport is situated just 8 kilometres / 5 miles east of Palma, the capital of Majorca and close to the village of Can Pastilla. It is also known as Son Sant Joan Airport or Aeroport de Son Sant Joan.
Is it Mallorca or Majorca ?
You may get confused because you hear the names Mallorca and Majorca being used. In effect they are both the same - Majorca being adopted by the British tourists where the Spanish population will always refer to it as the proper version Mallorca.

After Brexit - How Will My Travel from the UK to Majorca be Affected?
If the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (EU) with no deal on 31st October 2019, the rules for travel to countries still in the European Union will be changing.
The major change is that travellers will need at least 6 months left on their UK passport from their date of arrival at their destination (Majorca), however this only affects travel to certain countries.
Fortunately, as there is a considerable amount of confusion surrounding this, the gov.uk website contains a simple passport checker.
Will I Need a Visa for Travel to Majorca after Brexit ?
The European Commission has confirmed that visitors won’t need to apply for a visa if they are travelling this year (2019). However, from 2021 they may be required to pay a fee of €7 to enter the European Union.
The reason for this is that a transition period will take place once a Brexit deal is agreed, and this could take as much as 2 years.
Driving in the EU after Brexit
From 31st October 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, drivers may need an IDP (International Driving Permit) in addition to their UK driving licence to drive in EU and EEA countries.
Further information for UK citizens travelling abroad can be found on the UK Government website.
