Car Hire

We recommend hiring a car at the airport is the best way to enjoy Ibiza, and Can Terra is only a 20 minute drive from the airport. There are numerous car hire firms around the airport, and a couple which are ‘on airport’ so you only have to walk just outside the airport building to collect your car – ask us for suggestions.
