Whole loads of hire cars available, but is there the demand? | Miquel A. Cañellas
The huge number of hire cars in the Balearics this summer, more than ever before, is leading to a reduction in prices. The president of the Aevab car-rental agencies' association, Ramón Reus, says that cars are more economical but they are also less profitable. He points out that prices are in some instances 50% lower than on the mainland, meaning a day rate here of between 30 and 40 euros compared with 60 euros in other parts of Spain. Because of this he is calling for regulation to avoid "saturation".
