El Arenal is the main tourist center of the bay of Palma, where the modern boom of tourism began in the 60s. Among the many services that visitors can find here there is also a car rental service.
Why rent a car in el Arenal
There are several reasons why it may be more interesting to rent a car in el Arenal rather than at the airport.
- If our vacation trip includes the transfers with the airport we will not need to rent a car there, so it will be quite useful to have the possibility to do it close to our place of accommodation.
- El Arenal is very close to the airport of Palma, and has good connections. The urban bus line A2 connects the airport terminal with el Arenal. In the summer months the intercity line A51, with destination Campos, has three stops in el Arenal.
- A taxi between the airport and Arenal can cost around 20€.
- El Arenal offers a multitude of services to travelers, and is very well connected with the capital, so it is likely that we will not need a car for every day of our stay. Thus, planning well our activities we can save good money by renting a car only for the time strictly necessary.
