What do you need to know before renting a car in Ibiza?

If you want to explore Ibiza, renting a car can be very helpful. In this comprehensive guide, we share 6 tips with all the essential information you need for renting a car.


1. From what age are you allowed to rent a car in Ibiza?

To rent a car in Ibiza, you must be at least 21 years old and have a valid drivers license. However, some car rental companies apply a minimum age of 25 for renting certain vehicle categories, so check this in advance to avoid surprises.


2. What does renting a car in Ibiza cost?

The cost of renting a car in Ibiza varies depending on the type of vehicle, the rental period, including insurance and any extras such as child seats or adding an additional driver. In low season, rental car prices start from €15 per day while in high season this can quickly rise to around €40 – €60 per day. Bear in mind that if you book last-minute, prices can shoot up quickly as often only the more expensive cars are still available. Book in time to rent a car cheaply.


3. Where can you rent a car in Ibiza?

Car rental companies can be found at Ibiza airport and in popular tourist areas such as Ibiza Town, Playa d’en Bossa, Sant Antoni de Portmany and Santa Eulària des Riu. However, we recommend booking your car in advance online before traveling to Ibiza. Avoid long queues at rental companies and limited availability.


4. What is the best car rental company in Ibiza?

Determining the “best” car rental company in Ibiza can depend on several factors, such as pricing, vehicle availability, customer service and additional services offered. With so much on offer, it can sometimes be difficult to determine where you are doing the right thing. For this reason, we have launched the Ibiza Routeplan car rental service.

5. Book your car in advance

As with any popular holiday destination, it is wise to book your rental car in advance. This way, you avoid that your desired car is no longer available and you can benefit from any early booking discounts and rent a car cheaply.


6. Which car should I rent in Ibiza?

Consider the size of your travel group and the purpose you have when renting your car. A compact car can be handy for narrow streets and parking in town, while a more spacious car is better suited for a larger travelling group and covering more miles. Good to know is that our routes can be driven with any type of car. For the ultimate Ibiza experience, hire a convertible or Jeep.


7. Rent a car without a credit card on Ibiza

Most car rental companies require a credit card to rent a car. It is mandatory to show the credit card in the name of the main driver of the car. Don’t have a credit card? No worry! We work with a car rental partner who also offers the option of renting a car without a credit card. You pay easily with your credit or debit card. Also, the credit card does not necessarily have to be in your name. Click here to rent a car without a credit card.


8. Rent a car without a deposit on Ibiza

Although it is common for car rental companies to require a deposit when renting a car, you can also rent a car without a deposit. We work with a car rental partner that offers an ‘all-in-one’ insurance. Here you do not pay a deposit, but a fixed amount per day. With our other partner, you can rent a vintage Jeep without paying a deposit. Click here to rent your car or Jeep without paying a deposit.


9. Insurance

When renting a car in Ibiza, it is important to check which insurances are included in the rental price. Basic insurance usually includes third-party damage and theft cover, but it is advisable to upgrade to comprehensive insurance for complete peace of mind. Also check the excess and consider taking out additional insurance to reduce or eliminate it completely.


10. Extras and Accessories

Many car rental companies in Ibiza allow you to add extras and accessories to your rental car, such as child seats or an extra driver. Consider which extras you need and book them in advance to avoid disappointment.


11. Additional Costs

Take into account any additional costs when renting a car in Ibiza, such as airport surcharges, handling fees, or late return charges. Make sure you are aware of all costs before renting the car, so there are no surprises when returning the car. Do you want to avoid unexpected costs and are you looking for transparent rental companies? Then use our Ibiza Route Plan car rental service. 


12. Fuel policy

Pay close attention to the fuel policy of the car rental company. Some companies have a ‘full-full’ policy, meaning that you have to return the car with a full tank as you received it. Others have a ‘full-empty’ policy, where you can return the car with an empty tank. Be aware of the conditions and choose the policy that best suits your needs.


13. Be on time for pick-up and return

Make sure you are on time at the rental office for the pick-up and return of your rental car. It can be useful to schedule extra time, especially on busy days and when returning the car before your departure flight.
