I booked tickets to Ibiza, arranged accommodation and am booking a car now but what I have found is that all offices close at 23:00. My flight is scheduled at 01:00 in night.

Is there a way to hire a car when we arrive?

    Being Ibiza, there are probably more cars for hire at night than during the day!! :-) – Max Jun 14 '16 at 19:52

    Ok, I hired a bus transfer. When we arrived there were plenty of rental offices open. The information on their websites are utterly wrong. – Leos Literak Aug 27 '16 at 16:56

Hertz claims to allow after hours pick up at Ibiza Airport. There's a 50 EUR fee which seems a bit excessive [probably you can get it waived if you have Gold Five Star status with them], plus you need to call to arrange directly.

https://www.hertz.com/rentacar/location/spain/ibiza/IBZT50

Click through to Qualifications and Requirements, and in the drop down box choose "Out of hours".

General requirements

  • Flight number mandatory.
  • Premium Special (R6): Mercedes SLK Cabrio or similar is not available for out of hours.

Out of hours pick-up

For all Ryanair customers: Out of hours pick-up confirmed with Ryanair flight number.

For all other customers: Out of hours pick-up is available, but cannot be booked via the Internet. Please contact your Reservation Centre as specific information is required, namely:

  • your name and address.
  • your mobile phone number.

An additional fee in the amount of EUR 49.36 (including tax) will apply.

Alternatively a taxi to anywhere on the island is only about 30 EUR (as far as I remember) so it might be cheaper just to come back in the morning. There are taxis at the stand all night. Or even, taxi to your hotel with your family/friends and luggage and come back to the airport by yourself on the bus to pick up the car---it's a couple of euros for the bus fare.

  • Great response. I will take a shuttle from airport (we are 5) and then arrange a car rental next day. Ideally in Sant Josep and then returning to the airport. But it seems that I cannot book such combination online, all services know Ibiza airport only :-) – Leos Literak Feb 20 '16 at 17:32
  • @LeosLiterak There is a seaport on Ibiza as well (Sant Antoni), might be car rentals there – Calchas Feb 20 '16 at 19:21
  • Yes, there are. It seems funny that using taxi would be cheaper than renting a car. – Leos Literak Feb 21 '16 at 6:47

Leos! I recommend you to use car rental comparison services like rental24h.com By this link Ibiza car rental you will find all available cars and companies in Ibiza Airport. The results will filter all available companies for your time. Even if you arrive at 1 AM. I checked your request and find about 80 different cars available from Alamo, Europcar, Enterprise, OK and other companies. The price is started from 13 EUR per day for Fiat 500. Most of them have free shuttle bus or Airport terminal pickup. I use this site to find all available car rental companies in my destination. I hope this will help you in the future.

  • Are you sure that the car hire places that this broker offers are really open at that time, and don't change a late-collection fee? Have you personally used that broker for very late night collections without issue? – Gagravarr Jun 14 '16 at 17:12

    Yes. I rented cars many times with them. If you choose late hours they do not show you results from companies who do not operate in this time. Sometimes 9-6PM working companies have much better prices. But if you arrive at night you will see only cars and companies available for you. – Roman B. Jun 14 '16 at 17:20

    Reads a bit spammy, if you ask me … – Jan Jun 14 '16 at 17:27
  • @Jan Sorry, if so. I just wish to help. The previous post just recommended to use Hertz and pay 50 EUR more for pick up. – Roman B. Jun 14 '16 at 17:44

I work with AirportCarHire.com and if you request a quote for an out of office time we will only display the car hire suppliers that are open for the time you request. This applies to all suppliers worldwide.
