Formentera denies 6 rent-a-car companies' requests to increase vehicle fleets, rent quads and start business during enforcement

foto 2022v for ecoThe Formentera Office of Mobility reports that in recent weeks it has communicated to three car rental companies that they can not increase their fleet of vehicles or rent quads on Formentera during the enforcement period, which this summer runs from 15 June to 15 September. Specifically, the following has been communicated:

- A car rental company authorised to rent only passenger cars appealed the denial of its request to add 200 passenger cars and incorporate 1,000 motorcycles to its fleet. The Consell dismissed the appeal.
- A car rental company authorised to rent only passenger cars requested to incorporate motorcycle rental. The request was denied.
- A third company authorised to rent cars and motorcycles, and which also offered quad rental, has been informed that under summer enforcement of it will not be able to rent these vehicles because they are expressly prohibited.

"Under rules, rental companies authorised to operate this summer must decrease the fleets by 12% compared to 2019 and cannot rent quads. No new operations can start in summer, either, and rental vehicles from off the island are prohibited as well", explained Rafael González, councillor of mobility.

In April three rental companies were informed that they could not increase their fleet or start operations during the regulation period. A ride-hailing company was notified that it could not do business this summer either.

So far this season, six vehicle rental companies have been informed that they cannot increase their fleet, rent quads or begin operations on Formentera.
