The best car hire company - poll
Being on the island numerous times, we're always hiring a car as it's the best way to discover new places. We've used quite a few companies and last few years always ended up using CiCar, PlusCar or Payless. Never had an issue with any of those three.

What's your favourite car hire company?

Hint: You can choose more than one company in the pool Wink

Driving a UK registered car

How to get a discount for travel within Spain

Annual Hire Car Insurance
I have a policy with Insurance4CarHire that I renew annually, covers me for hire cars when I am off the island/in the UK etc. I've just received my renewal notice from them and they are stating that they will only renew for Non-UK residents if they renew before 31st Oct 2019, for the time being whilst they see what happens then. So, if you are resident on Fuerte and have this cover but your renewal is not due until Nov/Dec/Jan etc you may want to consider contacting the company and renewing a mo
