Car hire

Post by LinH » May 8th, 2016, 8:01 pm

Hi all, we're staying in Cala Santandria at the end of this month and are thinking of hiring a car just for a day to show the in laws a bit more of the island. Does anyone have any recommendations for local companies? I'm assuming we'll have to go into Cala Blanca?
Thanks
Lin

Hi Lin

lucky you!

We stay in Cala Blanca but hire our cars for collection from the airport, so can't give you recommendations for specific car hire companies in Cala Blanca.

There are car hire offices along the Av de la Playa in CB, in the row between the Sagitario and the Vista Playa apartments;your hotel or apartment complex may also be able to arrange car hire, unless you're staying in a private rental property.

hope this is a little help, have a great holiday :grin:

Thanks Trevx, hadn't thought about booking through the hotel. We're staying at the Prinsotel Ia Caleta they may well be able to sort us out.

Hi Lin
Before you book through the hotel, check out the car hire offices first as the hotels usually add around 10% to the booking for admin. I know that Owners Car in Cala Blanca are very good and normally do deals in may/june
Have a great time

Thanks Alan, yes we will check out the local car hire places first. We have looked at Owners Cars, just a bit worried about their terms and conditions - seem to hit you with a large excess and extra insurance. Have you any experience of this?

I have used Owners many times in the past and they are very good. If you are worried about the ridiculous excess on their insurance policies, just take out a private excess cover before you go its cheap and you are fully covered for any excess you may incur, Take a look at carhireexcess.co.uk
