Various companies provide rental cars on Menorca. Here are our tried and tested.
Two aggregate websites provide a good price comparison.
Zest Car Rental are very easy to use, have good customer service and provide cheap collision cover so rental companies’ expensive insurance isn’t required. This cover is very useful, as shown here.
Zest allows pre-payment and there are no surprises when picking up car. See individual companies below. The descriptions for picking up the car are clear and helpful. They mention operating hours to ensure you don’t pay extra for a late pick-up or miss the shuttles from the airport. You can also pre-book road tolls and SatNavs for mainland Europe (no tolls in Menorca).
Airport rentals stepped in when Goldcar tried to charge for pre-existing damage and pre-paid petrol resulting in a refund. However information such as being able to pay for fast stream pick up from OK! Car Rental was not provided in advance. This simply secures the car for a small deposit and provides a good choice of the best deals.
Car Hire Firms
Hiper celebrate 50 years in 2019 and they operate a shuttle from Menorca airport. The queues were certainly the shortest and pick up and drop off were very quick and easy to use. Car was not “or similar”.
Avoid Rhodium or Goldcar. They had car marked with dents then sneakily sent email “Dear Customer, here is something that may be of interest” with a 640 Euro bill attached to remove dents and repay petrol. After a long fight, with help from Airport Rentals and Lloyds Bank they repaid the money taken from credit card but no compensation for the hassle. They apologised. Best avoided and they have very bad press. Bought by French company Europcar since but still complaints are on the rise according to Which?
