We use Centauro every year...through carjet.com. Might not be the cheapest but always have new cars, new carseats for the kids and it's always nice and easy to collect the car with it being so close to arrivals.

Went to Menorca in June and booked a family 5 door car...last year we got a Focus estate, this year it was the new Focus with the slanty rear boot. It looks more roomy than it is...my husband's VW Golf has a much bigger boot...but with the parcel shelf loosened we managed to pack in 2 large hard cases, 4 lots of hand luggage, 2 kids, 2 adults and a load of shopping from the SYP in Mahon! Not much power...as always, but good enough for a week on the island, bumping down narrow dirt tracks to find those secluded beaches!

So in answer to your question...it's the Focus or the Fiesta for 2006 depending on what you've booked...

Going again in August....yipppeee!

Hi Gany + RCB76, We are going next month ( a party of 9 ). Could you tell me if you noticed any MPV'S for hire? Thanks

Hi,

No I didn't I'm afraid but I'm sure Carjet do them as my inlaws had an MPV one year. If you go to carjet.com they use Centauro cars..in fact you can phone an English helpline with them so I'm sure someone could confirm it for you...I can only vouch for the family car...some car hire companies have older cars usually vauxhalls/opels? But centauro do a lot of hire on the island and theirs seem the newest - all fords so I'd assume they'd have a Galaxy? :?:

PS Just a reminder...Centauro don't provide roofracks so you must be able to fit your luggage in the car...just thought I'd remind you as 9 people = a lot of luggage!

Have a fab time!!!

Here are some of the car hire companies that we have either used or looked into ... Betacar, like Avis, can be quite expensive unless you find special offers.
