Car Hire from Ibiza Airport

Hiring a car in Ibiza Airport

The car hire desk can be found on the ground floor of the terminal. There are four rental companies that service Ibiza Airport, and these are Avis, Enterprise, Europcar, and Hertz.

This is a popular holiday destination in Europe, so it is advised that you organise your rental in advance of your trip.

There are loads of vehicle options available on this island. From functional 4x4 SUVs, zippy convertibles, economy hatchbacks, and compact 4 door sedans. You will have the option to choose from a manual or an automatic transmission, though please note that automatic transmissions are more expensive, so keep that in mind when budgeting for your trip.

Leaving Ibiza Airport

Getting to Ibiza town (also known as Eivissa) should only take you around 25 minutes without traffic. Take the E-20 to the E-10, turn left at C-733 and then at the roundabout continue on the E-10, which will take you directly into town.

There are several petrol stations near Ibiza town, but the closest one is a BP station about 5 minutes’ drive from the airport. Coming from the airport, you continue on E-20 and then take the exit towards Centre Ciutat Eivissa/Sant Josep, then at the roundabout, take your first exit onto PM-801 and the fuel station will be on your left.

Driving in Ibiza

Ibiza is a small island, and hiring a car is considered the norm if you are wanting to explore. Traffic flows on the right hand side, and ‘Ceda el Paso’ means to give way. Parking can be difficult on the island, especially in the high seasons, so make sure that your accommodation allows you to park your car. The towns usually have designated spaces where you can pay and park. It is recommended that you pay attention to car parking restrictions as you can get clamped, and fined.

If you’re carrying a foreign license, Spain requires you to hold an International Driving Permit (IDP). Please make sure you carry your IDP and license with you when you are driving in Spain.

What can you see and do in Ibiza?

First and foremost, Ibiza is known for three things: for its sun, for its sand, and for its nightlife.

Sun-worshippers have plenty of beaches to choose from, and each has their own distinctive personality. There’s Cala Xarraca, whose clear, sheltered waters make for wonderful snorkelling, and a little further out for scuba diving. For the view, watch the sun go down at Cala D’Hort, an arc-shaped golden sand beach which overlooks the island of Es Vedra, a rugged limestone peak. For socialising, Cala Jondal is where the young and beautiful strut their stuff by day, before picking up sticks to Playa d’en Bossa, the famed party resort of the island.

If you are looking to indulge in the nightlife, you can find infamous clubs DC-10 and Space located at Playa d’en Bossa, or head to Sands, a beach bar with a more relaxed vibe than the super clubs.

Get to know the island by touring Ibiza town, or the Dalt Vila, the old part of Eivissa and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wander through the cobbled streets, churches, and museums within the fortress walls of this pretty settlement.

If you want to go further afield, take a ferry to Ibiza’s sister island of Formentera where you can find a slice of quiet island life, in this oft-ignored piece of paradise.
