/ car hire mallorca
I'm planning my first trip to Mallorca. I plan to stay in Palma the first three days to get oriented, taking public transportation from the airport, then looking for a rental car before I head out to explore the rest of the island.
Is this sensible, or should I be booking a car before I arrive to get the best rates?
have used Laser rentals or something similar a few times and been very good and cheap, they are in Soller but car dropped at airport
In my somewhat limited experience of "walk-up" rates, you can get fleeced if you cannot walk away and go else where, but at an airport location where you can try more than one company you can do well. A bit of a lottery.
To be fair we used them in October 2017 and they seemed to have improved. The queues were short because no customers were having bitter 10 minute arguments about their ridiculous insurance. No hard sell was attempted. All was well. I believe they may have been taken over.
The full to full full to full fuel policy is great because you can drive at least 50 miles before the digital indicator drops at all.

Don't you feel bad about cheating the next user?
Good question. Yes and no and a bit. Finding a filling station when driving for a flight can be stressful, so we preferred to top up the night before (about 30 miles away actually)
The hire company made up the rules and it is their responsibility to supply the next client with a full tank. If they could be arsed they would go to a filling station and see how much more fuel they could get in and then charge us accordingly. But they are Gold Car and they couldn't even be bothered to give the car a visual inspection when we returned the keys.
