Driving risk statistics in the Balearic Islands

Driving on new roads will always lead to some kind of uncertainty. Knowing the terrain and how people drive on Balearic roads will make you feel more relaxed and allow you to enjoy the experience. And that is why we have prepared these statistics on how driving in the islands is.

Balearic Islands have, in whole, the 8th highest number of registered cars in Spain. Its roads are good, with no black spots on the whole road network. However, Balearic Islands have the 5th highest number of traffic accidents in Spain, with a higher occurrence during July and August, when most tourists come. For the rest of the year, roads are relatively calm; so if you are spending your summer holidays here, we highly recommend you to be extremely cautious.

On the other hand, in numbers, Balearic Islands are the 15th province with more fines in Spain; however, proportionally to the number of cars, it has just the 43th position in the ranking, much lower than other provinces with more cars, and those are very good news for you. The number of stolen vehicles is also lower than at some provinces with fewer cars.

In short, Balearic Islands are a very good place to drive: roads are safe, few fines are imposed and few cars are stolen, but you should be cautious during July and August. If you are thinking of hiring a car, we advise you to hire a comprehensive coverage with no deductibles, for your peace of mind.
