1. What exactly is meant by buggy?

A buggy is an open vehicle which has been designed for off-roading but has been deemed roadworthy as well. This means you can cruise along the main roads and burn rubber on the dirt tracks too.

Buggies look a bit like go-karts. Buggies were first invented by an American, they started out as a beach-friendly vehicle hence the term “beach buggy”. It didn’t take long for those in the automotive industry to figure out that this vehicle had a lot of potential. This research led to buggies being what they are today - a top pick when it comes to off-roading awesomeness!

2. Why is renting and driving a buggy in Mallorca so much fun?

You get in and are seated exactly as if you were in a car. You get the benefits of being in a car but with the added extra of being in a more agile vehicle that can handle a wide array of terrains. Get the chance to explore Mallorca and get to grips with its rural side.

Let the wind blow through your hair as you take to the roads and have an adventure through the mountains, along the long stretches of roads or through the greenery. The sky is the limit on a Mallorca Buggy Tour. You don’t have anything blocking your sight, you get treated to panoramic views from start to finish on a buggy trip in Mallorca.

3. What kind of buggy is best for me?

There a lot of types of buggies out there depending on the driver, the terrain and what you want to get out of your buggy experience. It’s not unheard of for people to customise buggies off their own backs but these are usually only used on their own property.

Beach trips in Mallorca are no longer on offer due to health and safety restrictions but fear not because there are plenty more places to check out on the island.

The buggy rental companies that we have picked to work with guarantee you a driving experience which is jam-packed with pleasure and will get your blood racing. Buggies can fit two people in them, so you can set out on an adventure in Mallorca and have a blast with your bestie.

Go it alone or do a buggy group tour in Mallorca with your friends and family. The tours by buggy can kick off with up to six vehicles so there’s plenty of space for everyone to get involved!

4. Do you need a driving licence to drive a buggy in Mallorca?

Buggies have four wheels and therefore you need to have a full driving licence to be able to drive one. You will need to show your driving licence before the tour gets started. If you forget to bring it along, you will not be able to take part in the tour. Please note that you won’t be given a refund either.

As well as the driving licence, you need to have had at least a year of driving experience and be able to prove it. The minimum age for drivers is 19 in Mallorca. It goes without saying that every buggy tour includes an introduction about how to handle the vehicle so even if it’s your first time behind the wheel of a buggy you don’t need to worry about a thing.

5. Should you make up your own route or do a guided buggy tour in Mallorca?

We have picked the best of the bunch when it comes to buggy rental in Mallorca so that you get to know the tricks of the trade so to speak and get a real insight into what Mallorca is all about. You get to uncover pretty nooks and crannies that are often undiscovered by the average tourist and all of this is possible thanks to the experienced, local guides.

You can stop off to take photos when and where you want to so that you can capture the moments that mean the most to you. If you fancy making your way to specific spots, then you can create a tour that doesn’t miss a beat and fits in everything you want to see!

Take a quick dip in the sea or grab a cup of coffee - whatever you fancy! Regardless of what tour you pick, a buggy experience is one-of-a-kind and takes you up close and personal to many stunning sights in Mallorca.

6. What clothes do you need to wear?

Buggies take you straight to the heart of the island and closer than ever to all its best features in a way that other vehicles aren’t able to. You might get a bit mucky, so we don’t recommend putting on your Sunday best as you’ll probably pick up a fair amount of dirt along the way. Decent, sturdy shoes are also a must as well.

Pay close attention to the weather and be prepared for it to change at any given moment. Make sure you’ve got yourself covered from every angle, keep a pair of sunnies on hand and pack a scarf to keep yourself from getting whipped by the breeze on your neck. As the locals know only too well, the weather in Mallorca can change in the blink of an eye so bear that in mind when dressing and getting your bag ready.

A rain cover should always be on hand along with a waterproof jacket and/or a jumper. When the sun is blazing down, you are likely to get fried if you don’t cover up and put sun cream on. The seats will get very hot in summer so it’s a good idea to put a cloth underneath you to avoid getting stuck to the seat and burning yourself.

7. Where can you do a buggy tour in Mallorca? Off-roading or on the roads?

The vehicles are roadworthy which means that you get the chance to put the pedal to the metal on roads that stretch across the island. Make memories that last a lifetime and sort out which streets you want to burn rubber on. If traffic gets heavy, take it to the hills and get to see what buggies are really made of as you rally through the rural rough land. Buggies let you discover and reveal places that can’t be reached otherwise.

Take a tour in a buggy and reveal villages that are hiding in the marvellous mountains in Mallorca. Due to the size of them, you can squeeze through the littlest of lanes without a care in the world. Riding along the beach is a no-go but it doesn’t get in the way of having heaps of fun.

East Mallorca serves up plenty of dusty dirt tracks where you can crank up the speed away from the crowds. You can make up your own route or you can follow one of the five pre-made routes. With an already established route you get a decent amount of off-roading and don’t skip a beat in terms of the must-sees in Mallorca.

8. What is the best weather for buggies?

Tour Mallorca by buggy all-year-round. It hardly ever rains so touring the island by buggy is a good way to see the best of what’s on offer. Even if it does rain, often there’s just a shower and then the blue skies come out to play once again. Nothing stands in your way when it boils down to it.

However, if the rain is heavy then you might be able to put it off until another day (this would have to be sorted out with the supplier). If that option is not doable then the only other option would be to process a refund, this would be the last resort.

Please be aware that it is impossible to rent a buggy in Mallorca without a guide - it’s simply not allowed due to health and safety regulations.

9. Are there any restrictions to hiring a buggy in Mallorca?

The good news is that renting a buggy comes with next to no restrictions in terms of your fitness level. An average fitness level is suitable to get involved in this tour. It goes without saying that this tour is not a good idea if you’re pregnant or suffer from back or joint problems as you’ll be darting around at high speeds over bumpy land which won’t fare well with aches and pains and nor with bulging bumps.

A fair amount of dust is sure to rear its head as you zigzag around on the dirt tracks. You need to be at least 1.6m tall to drive a buggy safely. Disabled people may be able to take part as a passenger (depending on their personal circumstances). Children over 4 are welcome to get involved as well, seat cushions are available if they aren’t so tall. 

10. What’s the difference between a buggy and a quad?

Think of a quad as a motorbike but with four wheels. The driver hops on board in the same way they would with a motorcycle and uses the handlebar to not only steer but to brake and accelerate as well. Of course, like motorbikes they don’t have rooves either.

On the other hand, buggies are closer to cars in their design. They have high horsepower, especially when their weight is taken into consideration. They come complete with steering wheels and pedals but without the hefty frame. Without the windows, you get super close to nature.

11. Is buggy driving dangerous?

There is always a certain level of risk when driving on a road, no matter what you’re driving. The danger level depends heavily on the driver. If you drive safely and carefully and follow the instructions that you get given during the briefing, you lessen the risk of an accident significantly. The buggies get checked regularly so you can cut out the need to worry about that.

12. Who can rent a buggy?

There’s no such thing as being too old to rent a buggy in Mallorca. If you’ve got the right amount of driving experience and a licence, then you’re got what it takes to join in.

Perhaps you want to treat your kids or surprise your better half, this is a sure-fire way to get in touch with a more authentic Mallorca.

Stag and hen dos and company trips are welcome to come along and give a group buggy trip in Mallorca a go!

Now you’ve got all the facts, all that’s left to do is to pick the perfect buggy experience in Mallorca for you.
