It's based on 2 adults.

OK rental car on Menoca are terrible. You will be hit with all sorts of accidents and marks to the car unless you take out there insurance, I believe its a bout £15 per day.

Much better off paying a bit more "up front" at Hertz or similar at the airport. If you sign up for Hertz Gold club, which is free you get 5% off the rental (they already have a "sale" on off season rentals) and you can skip the queues, the Hertz desk is in the terminal.

Your Car Hire Figure is Daily so your Deal is not accurate you need to multiply your £17 x 11 days if you are going to be accurate

I think that is total, it's the same price on other sites such as argus car hire too. That is the basic cost though so if you want insurance I would look at Insurance4carhire or similar.

That price does not seem possible to obtain at this current time. The cheapest car that you choose appears to be £46.98 for 11 days with a £2500 excess.

As always the car hire price is an OUTRIGHT LIE.......as proved before the Travel Expert who posts these is a joke,they must be taking kick-backs or bungs so should be banned from this site.....

Just Google ok rent a car scams obviously the travel expert has not.

You can easily change the rental, I just compare a few prices. Here is another one from a company that comes in at £23.70 vehicle-rent.com/en and I got right to the payment screen.

Again, I'm not sure how good this company is as I have an annual policy that covers the excess insurance through my credit card so never need to take any additional insurances out so always book a cheap rental and deny any 'extras'.

I don't promote particular car rental companies, I just look for good prices but of course you can change the company if you wish.

Avoid GOLDCAR too in menorca , they are the worst.

It's what you pay at the rental desk not what you pay on the booking screen,you must add a further £150 to the price you quote.

The quote I had for vehicle rent was paying £1 odd up front and then the remaining £22 odd in Menorca. That's what it said at the checkout page.

Go Sixt - no nonsense company for a few quid more.

And you believed that?...............I dont think you haver EVER hired a car from one of these brokers/companies before or you would know better.........type the name of the actual car rental company into google and add the word scams,and then think twice before posting holiday bargains that include car hire.

Yep, I've used vehicle rent, argus car hire and holiday autos all before with no problems.... I've also used more popular ones like Avis, Europcar and Budget too.

Poppy Cars are the only people to use for car hire in Menorca. Used them for years now, pleasure to deal with.

Jesus wept, go easy,

firstly, the rental price is all the OP can go on. Whatever hidden costs come at the desk is out of ops control. So maybe there is fuel tank and tax etc. But that is at the rental desks discretion so OP cannot put that here.

Secondly, get a grip, op is posting a reasonably priced get away, that the op has researched and checked, including proof. The op has not put forward a package holiday, feel free to go Thomas cook and see how much that would be.

Instead of being so critical, say thanks to the OP and reprice it yourself with whomever hire car you would prefer.

Thanks OP, good deal. Hot

seems a good deal but the title seems to imply car hire for the duration but is priced for a day. This has already been pointed out and is misleading.

also can you confirm what dates this is for?

Hi Rachel

I think everyone on here appreciates the work that goes in to finding a deal and taking the time to post it! What gets people a little confused is when deal does not quite add up or is confusing.

For example, a lot people know that GoldCar, OK Car, et-al rental firms are more or less scams, you never pay the amount shown. You get hit with super high additional charges etc for insurance and big excesses. When you post those "deals" like here, you wont ever get an easy ride b/c people are irate about scammers!

Likewise when you do a reply showing you can get another deal on a website, you went all the way to pay page and then don't post that it damages your legitimacy even further.

My honest opinion and advice would be to post "prepaid" car hire prices, the ones you pay NOW not the one you pay at the desk from legitimate car firms. They don't have to be Avis etc. As mentioned Poppy car hire is well known on the island, though often booked early.

I would be wary also, lots of people on here (are you guessing you I have been to Menorca a few times or more!?) often visit the same locations so they know some good info but if you post seeming to be the fountain of knowledge on said location you might receive cold votes of a bit of bashing in the comments.

It's good to get some feedback on the car hire companies, but I can only give information based on what I have seen on the booking pages and in the terms and conditions. For example, the one with Vehicle Rent I mentioned I've just read through all the terms and conditions and payment details and I can't see nothing which indicates you would have to pay more than what's on the payment screen. I believe this is with a company called OK Rental which is another one that appears to have terrible reviews, mainly due to the problems people have had with the insurance options etc. Screen shots below.

I think it's important when renting from any insurance company to do your homework and make sure you know exactly what you are signing up for and make sure you know what the excess is and that you are covered whether it be with the car hire company, or thorough other options. I've taken to filming around the car when inspecting it with the car hire rep making sure any issues are raised and recorded before rental and also on the return to avoid any problems after an incident with Avis. May sound a bit extreme!

It's great that people have some good experience at using local companies and I have used a range of local companies myself including Airbnb to rent a motorhome abroad. The company someone mentioned called Poppy rental has availability at €235. Again, it's up to you which company you use and your budget and for anyone who books this I would encourage you to look at some of the suggestions from regular travellers to Menorca.

Happy travelling!
