Cheers for the recommendations!

We've already tried Don Cars and Sol Cars and tbf both were on a par with Poppy with regards to customer service etc. Sol Cars do offer a regular's discount, but only if you pay upfront at the start of the year, which is not something we've done before :???: I think I'll contact a couple of the other Companies and see what they say.

Another recommendation for autospons ferreries. Excellent service and good value for money.
A bonus is that Sarah is British !

Hi all,

Has anyone any recent experience of renting with Hiper Cars? They've got a great price for 3 weeks rental this summer and I'm really tempted, most reviews I can find are generally positive (Gold Car they aint!") but nothing that recent. I'm not bothered about the off airport location as it's only a five minutes away.

Hi and welcome to MenorcaTalk. Not heard much about them in the past few years. They were like many others happy to offer cheap and then try it on once they had you there. So general rules apply, if it too good to be true, then there's a good chance it is. Just make sure you read and understand their T&C's and make yourself aware of any damage however slight to the body, interior and keys. Also check their fuel policy, a friend rented a small 3 door diesel for 5 days, came with a full tank (120.00€) return empty with no refund.

We stopped using Hiper several years ago, when their fuel policy became an obvious way of ripping you off. They started charging close to 100 Euros for a full tank in a Corsa, but like Slarti says it's probably more than that now :evil:

Re: CAR HIRE and international driving license .

Hello All
On the subject of car hire has anyone recently hire a car and had to produce this new international driving licence the press over in the UK have been talking about ??.

I remember the requirement of a DVLA
number as to check that you had no driving convictions or outstanding fines ,so that the car hire company could check you out . I did this and the car hire people dismissed it !
I have hired cars for last 2 years in Minorca and other Spanish regions and never asked about it.
Is this yet another press hype .
Will be in Es castell beginning of July. :???: 🙄

ASFAIK while ever we are members of the EU nothing except a current driving licence is required, if in doubt ask the car hire co you have booked with.

I've always printed a copy off but never once been asked for it.

We hired a car at Easter with Menorca on Wheels and there was no mention of it. It's all Brexit hype at the moment! :evil:

As we approach the period whereby anything could happen Brexit wise then I for one will be getting an International license. Not exactly expensive and covers backside for the highly possible scenario that we may actually leave EU this year ( with no deal hopefully :grin: ) WHILST I am in Menorca.
