Driving from Menorca Airport to Mahón
For many visitors, the nearby capital city is the first port of call. To get there in your Menorca Airport car hire, turn left as you depart the terminal onto the Me-14 and then veer right at the roundabout onto the Me-12. Continue straight through two more roundabouts and the road will become the Carrer de Vassallo which leads directly into the city centre.
Driving tips for your Menorca rental car
Driving in Menorca is much the same as driving in the rest of Spain. The laid-back nature of the place makes it easy to travel around - just make sure that you pull over to enjoy the view rather than trying to do it while behind the wheel!
Spain car hire driving tips
● In Spain, as in the rest of continental Europe, all traffic drives on the right.
● Speed limits in Spain go as high as 120 kilometres per hour on dual carriageways. Drive carefully at high speeds.
● Roundabouts are common in Spain and around Menorca. Remember to give way to any traffic already on the roundabout.
● Familiarise yourself with the native names of places in Spanish or Catalan - i.e., Mao rather than anglicised Mahon - to ensure you can understand directional signs.
● The blood alcohol concentration limit for drivers in Spain is set low at 0.05%. One drink could put you over the line - so we recommend abstaining completely from alcohol before driving.
Parking options at Menorca Airport and around Menorca
