Top tips for hiring a car in Formentera

  • You can enjoy driving around the idyllic surroundings of Formentera in your very own car hire and explore every corner at your own speed. With the roads on the island being flat and in good condition, you will only require a two-wheel drive to get around. As the island is only very small, you will probably benefit from a small, compact car, which can navigate the narrow roads with ease and that will be better for parking across the island.
  • It is important that you follow the rules of the road when you are driving in Formentera so that you do not end up on the wrong side of the law. If you are pulled over by the police, you may be asked to take a breath test. The legal limit in Formentera is 0.5 mg of alcohol per ml of blood, so you must stay below this at all times. It is also a legal requirement to wear your seat belt at all times and for children that are under 12, or smaller than 135 cm, to be seated in a suitable child seat. In addition, it is illegal to use mobile phone whilst driving unless you have a suitable hands-free kit.
  • When you are hiring a car in Formentera, it’s important that you are aware of where the petrol stations are on the island. You will find that there is a selection of petrol stations around the port area of the island and on the outskirts of Sant Francesc Xavier; however, the rest of the island does not have a place to fill up your car. So, whilst the island is relatively small, you should make sure that you are not running low on petrol before you make a trip to either the southeast or southwest of the island.
  • Book your car hire in Formentera at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Formentera are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Formentera

  • Should I hire a car in Formentera?

    You should hire a car in Formentera as it enables you to explore the charming island at your leisure, without the time pressures that come with timetables of public transport. For example, if you want to visit the beach of Calo Des Mort from the port, then you can drive there in about 25min, whilst if you did the same trip via public transport it would take you much longer. A taxi would also likely be quite expensive compared to that of a car hire if you decided to do the same trip.

  • What is driving like in Formentera?

    You will find that driving in Formentera is very different to that of the United Kingdom, so it might take you a little time to adjust to it. You will be driving on the right side of the road and not the left. In addition, the steering wheel will be on the left of the car rather than the right. The upper speed limit on the island is 70km/h (44mph) and there are quite a few cameras on the island to catch those who don’t abide by this. Keep an eye out for signs in urban areas, as the speed limit will reduce when you are driving through these to either 30km/h (19mph) or 40km/h (25mph).

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Formentera?

    When you are hiring a car in Formentera it is advised that you check each car hire company individually to see what their policy is on the minimum age requirements. In general you need to be 18 years of age to hire a car, but some agencies will require you to be older. There will also be a surcharge for drivers under a certain age, often 25, which you have to pay in addition to the standard car hire rate. Drivers who are under this age will also have a smaller selection of cars to choose from as the car hire agencies only rent out the cars with more powerful engines to the more experienced drivers.
