Hints for driving in Palma de Mallorca
| Type of |
|Built up areas||50km/h|
There are thousands of parking spaces in the capital in municipal car parks, so you should be able to get a spot. However, traffic can get congested within the city – you can always park in the outskirts and walk in.
There are pedestrian crossings all over the island. They can be in unexpected places too, such as just off of roundabouts or near junctions for side streets. Cars should stop at these – people will walk out into the road expecting them to, so be wary.
Once upon a time, it was the most expensive toll tunnel in Spain. However, the fees were scrapped at the end of 2017 so now you can use it for free. This impressive section of road is carved deep into the rockface and means you can avoid the difficult mountain drive from Bunyola to Soller.

Does my rental include free mileage?
Many of our car hire suppliers do include free (also known as unlimited) mileage in the rental price. Read the fine print though to be sure, as this can change depending on the location you’re picking up your car and the duration of your rental. Even if there is a mileage limit, it may still cover that amount of driving you’ll do, especially on a small island like Mallorca – to drive around the perimeter of the island is just over 300km.
From Palma de Mallorca, its not vary far to any of the island’s other towns and major attractions. But despite how close places may appear on a map, driving times can take longer than expected, particularly if you opt for the more scenic routes.
