We are often asked, "Do I need a car in Formentera?".
The island of Formentera is relatively small at only 20 km from the port area in the north to the tip of the toe at La Mola and for this reason cycling is very popular.
For guests that prefer to hire a car - this gives added flexibility especially for families with children.
The temperatures in Formentera can get very high, and for some, cycling or walking becomes less practical in such heat.
Many of the properties we offer are quite remote (relatively secluded beach front properties), and for this reason a car is particularly useful for supermarket shopping and for reaching some of the further flung areas of the island.
We can offer our guests car hire in Formentera at cheap rates, and it is better to organise this in advance.
It is very important to book car hire early for your Formentera holiday for high season dates.
You must not leave this until the last minute as the demand for cars in Formentera is often high and sometimes it is not possible to book a car on arrival.

Formotor car hire in Formentera
Formotor is a local, family run operation that
is also based at the port of La Savina.
They have offices at La Savina, Es Calo and Ca Mari, Es Pins.
They are extremely reliable and
They are very flexible and offer pick up and drop off services free of charge to your property should you need this.
Their office at the port is open all day from 08:00 to 21:00.
Many guests chose to pick their car from the office at the port of La Savina, and return it to the same office when they leave. This saves money on the taxi fare transfer to and from your property.
There is a useful key drop box at the Formotor office in the port of La Savina, just remember to fill the vehicle up with fuel at the end of your rental period.
It is not always possible to chose your model vehicle other than your car hire group.
It is important to remember that cars are reserved by the day, so it makes sense to co-ordinate your pick up and drop off times well. It makes no sense to pay for a full extra day for just a few hours use.
