Default Car Hire

I'm sure this has been asked a hundred times but who are the best priced car hire company operating from the airport. I've used Sixt, who were very good but really expensive.
We are going for a weekend in November. Any suggestions?

We used to use Sixt all the time but they have got even more expensive of late.
We use Hiper now , great price and service plus giving the car back far less stressful than Avis, Sixt etc as they don't go over it with a fine tooth comb ! The cars may not be in such pristine condition as Sixt but all damage ( very slight ) is marked on your hire agreement. We ve used them 4x this year with no problems at all .

We've used Vanrells for a couple of years and they are quite reasonably priced.

I've now used Hipercar twice. Excellent. Supplied and return with full tank. Deposit of 58 euro (panda) drafted but not processed for fuel. Upon car return with full tank, deposit draft ripped up.

Formentor did not wish to price match. Collect with 1/4 tank of which you pay for, no refund on return.
They currently charge the below for 1/4 tank, which is obviously more than you pay at the petrol pump.

Group B ( fiat panda or similar ) - 18.24

Group C ( ford fiesta or similar ) 19.50

Hyper Car's website says you collect at Minibus office. Where is that?

Hipercar offer free shuttle from airport to their car site. I hope this helps.

Sorry I included direct link in error.
You will need to pick up the yellow Hipercar minibus from the minibus zone, next to the bus stop at the airport. Their website shows this location image and process. Good luck.

From their site:
'Camino Can Pastilla, s/n Palma. Just 4 minutes from the airport (free shuttle service Airport-Office-Airport). Very important: On arrival you must go to our courtesy yellow minibus (in the minibus area, going out the Terminal just in front of Parking Building) For arrivals after 23:00 please call +34 971-269911 to request our shuttle service.

Telephone (+34) 971-269911 - (+34) 971-262223
Fax: (+34) 971-492000
Office hours: from 8:00 to 22:00 (24-hour service)
GPS Coordinates: 39.53969,2.713119'.

They show a 72% 'very good' rating for their 'shuttle service' 2015, 23% 'good'...

No, its not a hassle however I wouldnt choose to use it unless the on site operators were too expensive.

Hiper is in Can Pastilla which is about a five minute journey from the airport in their minibus.

I use Hiper and Centauro all the time. Very easy and quick - probably quicker than queuing for Record.

I'm booking a car for a few days at the start of February. We have used Sixt for years, the airport location and service are first class, and no hassle with upselling and hidden extras. But their prices are now just unrealistic. So, I'm looking for a recommendation, has to be airport location, good service. Anyone? Thanks
