hi, as you have put poopy cars as the subject I assume you are getting a car from them :razz:
They come with half a tank of fuel, you can either pay for the fuel if you want to take it back on empy, or if not then take it back with half a tank. :razz:
I only let him think he's in charge.

Hi Emdaz. The fuel will be more than enough to get you to ST. There is a fuel station on the main Me1 which you will pass on the from the airport to ST. The Hyperclimente in Mahon is a huge supermarket and we usually go straight there from the airport to do some shopping before we drive to the apartment. Hope you have a fabulous time.

There are 2 supermarkets in Alaoir which is not that far away. You will probably be able to get all you need there and the prices are quite good there too.

This should help you out with distances.

What time do you land Emdaz? If it's during the day I would recommend calling at a supermarket en route to Santo Tomas because the local supermarkets will not have a great deal of choice at this time of year. It would be good to get the essentials to last a couple of days until you find your bearings.
If you go to Alaior, the supermarket is signposted as you pull off the main road, just keep turning right, it's in the industrial part of the town.

Enjoy your holiday, your twins will love the beach!

Yes it is on route. When you come out of the airport, you can follow the roadsigns to Ciutadella. This will get you to the main road ( the one that runs through the island from Mahon to Ciutadella, all the resorts link to the main road). Alaior is the first town you will come to. Once you have found the supermarket, get back to the main road, again follow the signs pointing in the Ciutadella direction. You will not be on the main road very long before you turn left towards Santo Tomas and Es Migjorn, you go through Es Migjorn, another small town, en route to Santo Tomas.
I hope this sounds OK?
