Why car hire in Cala Ratjada
Renting a car in Cala Ratjada has several advantages over renting at the airport
It is the farthest tourist center from Palma airport, more than 80 km away, and you have to cross several towns. If you do not know the roads of the island it can be a somewhat stressful start to the trip to drive for more than an hour through a place that is unknown to us.
On the other hand, it is common for tourist packages to include the transfer from the airport to the hotel and vice versa, so we already have that trip covered.
Cala Ratjada has a wide range of leisure activities for its visitors, as well as magnificent beaches very close by, so it is likely that we will not be driving every day.
Planning our stay and visits to more distant places will allow us to save money by renting a car only for the essential days.
Some places can even be reached by public transportation:
- Line 411 will take us to Capdepera, Artà and Manacor.
- Line 422 will take us to Cala Mesquida and its nearby beaches.
- Line 423 runs along this small bay
- Finally, the line 424 arrives to Porto Cristo, another important enclave in the east of Mallorca.
