It's 6 months a year. If you come in January you can only get 6 months but if you come in july you can get a year as it will be 6 months of year 1 and 6 months of year 2. Then the car has to be registered on The island which is very expensive and timely or you have to take it home or scrap it. We have researched it as we are currently on our way with our car now. we will be ok till june.

Hi is it possible to buy a car in mainland Spain and use that or do the same rules apply.

I believe it is a lot easier but it's still a process to register it on the island and pay the tax on it. Best if u get a receipt for much less that the value u pay for the car as the tax is a percentage of the value of the car.
