Hiring a car for one’s holiday is a good idea, as a hired vehicle provides far greater freedom of choice, comfort and convenience than public transport, especially during hot summer months and when one has planned a lot of sightseeing.
There are not just white sandy beaches, lively resorts, hilltop villages and two mountain ranges to choose from, when it comes to Mallorca tourist attractions – island hopping within the archipelago of the Balearics is also very popular. You can pick up short flights to some of the islands from Mallorca Airport.
The Palma-Santanyi motorway provides quick access to the airport, to Palma and the surrounding villages, towns and seaside resorts. The 8 km / 5 mile journey between the airport and Palma takes no more than 15 minutes, so meeting and greeting friends upon their arrival is easy and dropping them off at the end of their holiday is convenient and easy, too.
