In Mallorca, driving is on the right hand side of the road. There are many narrow windy roads in Mallorca so exercise caution. During the peak holiday season in July and August, roads can get congested and local drivers tend to be far more aggressive than UK drivers. Overtaking on blind corners is not uncommon and tailgating is the norm if something thinks you are driving too slowly. Do not be pressured into driving dangerously. Take your time whenever you are driving here.

The wearing of safety belts is compulsory in Mallorca. When driving through the countryside, watch out for stray farm animals and at night some roads are poorly marked. For this reason, car hire excess insurance in Mallorca is highly recommended.

Please note if you are stopped by the Spanish traffic police while driving around the island for a traffic offense, fines have to be paid on the spot and a receipt is issued. This is to ensure the fine is paid by tourists to Mallorca who are unlikely to return to Mallorca to appear in court to pay the fine.

A full UK driving license is required to drive in Mallorca. You should keep your driving license, insurance documents and car rental agreement with you at all times when driving.

If you plan to travel around the island of Mallorca, due to the possibility of an accident with a stray farm animal or a motorcyclist flaunting the road laws, it really is worth considering taking out car hire excess insurance in Mallorca.
