Trevx

I will give them a go and report back. It's a good deal, and we won't be using the car all that much so as long as we come in cheaper or similar to taxi's to and from the Airport (staying in Cala'n Bosch) we might as well.

Thanks

I believe they are the part of the same group...

I would like to add a car hire recommendation. I have just booked a really good deal with Keels and Wheels. I emailed the enquiry and got an email a few minutes later offering a discount as I am a return customer. We used them last year for a larger vehicle (usually use Poppy Cars who I would also recommend) and had a great experience with a really competitive price.

Poppycars is now under new ownership. Sue has now fully retired and Roger will be helping the new owners for a time, you may even see him at the airport now and then but for how long? I don't know.

Yes, we discovered this earlier on in the year, I believe a Menorca couple have taken over.

Unfortunately the takeover has impacted upon the prices we used to pay as 'regular renters' and we're now having to shop around to find a better deal. When we emailed Poppy Cars to cancel our summer, September and Christmas bookings because of the price increases, the new owners didn't even bother to reply. They're obviously not that bothered about losing 'valued customers!' :shock:

We always use autopons ferreries. No hidden extras, airport collection. It’s run by a local family and has an english staff member who is brilliant. As far as I know the office is open year round. Can’t recommend highly enough

My personal recommendations now are Pancho at Ambercarsmenorca.com, Jason at Doncars.com and Toni at menorcaonwheels.com / keelsandwheels.co.uk

Sue I do know that Toni from menorcaonwheels.com does offer discounts to regulars and is considering discounts to property owners too.
