As a regular visitor to Majorca for almost 50 years and an owner of an apartment for almost 15 years. I would love to not have to hire a car. Problem is that Taxi fares especially from the airport are so high. It is far cheaper for me to hire a car for a week than to have a taxi to and from my apartment for the airport.

At last !!!!. There are far too many Hire Cars on the roads in the Season. Also, the number of residents Cars has spiralled. The number of 4x4 gas guzzling planet polluters are saturating the roads everywhere. They are being driven at high speeds. They TAILGATE smaller Cars. The way that Cars are being driven here is frightening. Is there an Emergency for all these speeding drivers. Or are they rushing to see a Fire !!!!!. I feel more speed cameras are needed to deal with these sad Formula 1 copy cat drivers , who are dangerous on Mallorca. Along with idiotic Boy and Girl RACERS !!!
