Car Hire Decisions: Madrid Vs Mallorca

Many people will be travelling extensively this holiday season and one of the most important decisions to make is regarding the choice of transportation. In Madrid, one has a wide choice of options between, private and public transport, from the metro (tube), medium distance trains (Cercanias), municipal buses, taxis and even the now fashionable motorbike taxis. The decision, to go for one means or the other in Madrid is generally based on time and cost. For instance, if you are rushing to the airport on a tight schedule the taxis are the best option, while if you arrive by bus with a light luggage, the metro will surely do. For a big European city such as Madrid, the public transport system is reliable, safe, clean and comfortable. Now, what happens if you go to an Island like Mallorca? The scenario, changes completely, as one lands at this island paradise. Firstly, there is only one metro line and the bus service does not run on Sundays. However, the picture is not at all gloomy as this island which receives millions of visitors annually and whose residents, in summer rank from German, English and French nationalities to the Spanish Royal family, who spend time together at their La Almudaina Palace. In order to enjoy the many attractions the island has to offer, it is necessary to hire a car. The choice of an adequate car hire service, according to one’s needs is key to a trouble free stay. Therefore, when on our last trip to the island, we came across an English speaking service, that does pick-ups and drop-offs at the airport,that clearly declares whats covered or not in their fees, we were delighted. RitmoCars has an easy, online reservation service that allows you to add on extras like child car seats etc with just a click. I was especially delighted that apart from their car hire services; they maintained an informative blog with interesting information about Mallorca and other cities where they operate as well as an interactive social media communication through Facebook and Twitter. RitmoCars has car hire solutions for everyone, and its extensive fleet assures that you can drive away in the kind of car you are comfortable driving in the shortest time possible.
