One of the canary Islands

Easily travel to the Sandy beaches of Tenerife with car rental

In the south and southwest there are the most famous beaches of Las Americas and Los Cristianos. The rest of the island has rocky shores with steep cliffs. The highest cliffs can be found in the fishing village Puerto de Santiago in the west. Car rental in Tenerife is the best way to tour around the island, for it offers great flexibility to travel at your own pace.

Pico del Teide

One of the most characteristic attractions of Tenerife is the caldera, a large crater formed by volcanic explosion or by collapse of a volcanic cone. The Las Cañadas caldera is located on 2000 meters altitude and has a diameter of 14 kilometers. Volcano El Teide, with a summit of 3718 meters, is the highest mountain in Spain. The volcano and its surroundings comprise the Teide National park, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. Why not take a scenic drive in your rental car in Tenerife and enjoy the magnificent views?

The extrodinary shaped rock Formations of Los Roques

The bizarre looking rock formations of Los Roques, Los Azulejos and Zapato de la Reina attract many tourists. Besides the El Teide the other high peaks are Las Cañadas Cerrillar, the Chiqueros, the Colmenas, the Pico Viejo and Guajara. The stunning canyon-like gorges walk from the center to the coast. A rental car on Tenerife can help you reach the rock formations with ease.

Tax free shopping at Santa Cruz

The capital of Tenerife Santa Cruz de Tenerife is situated on the east coast. It is a big city with an important port for cargo and cruise ships. Here you can shop tax free. On the west coast is Playa de San Juan, from this place you get a beautiful view over the Atlantic Ocean to the neighboring island of La Gomera. Car rental in Tenerife helps you to quickly and comfortably reach Playa San Juan.

Puerto de la Cruz

Car hire in Tenerife is convenient especially when visiting the varied surroundings. The hospitable local people will show you the passage from the Teide to the coast. Puerto de la Cruz is located on the north coast in the valley of La Orotava at the foot of the volcano Teide. With a beautiful boulevard with quaint shops and cozy restaurants, it is definitely worth visiting.

Pack your hiking gear in your rental car and take a breathtaking hike

If you like hiking, Tenerife is the place to be. Tenerife has hundreds of marked trails. In particular, the village Vilaflor offers excellent opportunities for hiking. Why not let your rental car take you to the best hiking places on the island?

We chose not to stay at Santa Cruiz but at Buenavista del Norte, which I think was the best choice. The view is great, and the village has kept its non-touristic atmosphere.

If you like exhilerating driving along mountain roads then its perfect,We were terrified but survived the trauma. The drive if your brave is well worth it but be prepared . Lots of lovely quiet coves with only a few people on the beach. Lots of very good fine restauarants. Avoid Los Christianos and Playa Americas,Or go if you want to be in an English Ghetto...

Stay away from the main tourist areas. The island has a lot to offer in smaller places and off the beaten track.

Love it. Locals tend to drive very close to your bumper so leave lots of space. Main roads are ok, in the mountains they're more rough / unkempt. Macca was great, as was Los Gigantes.

Tenerife is nice, but definitely hire a car to go and see Masca and Teide, as well as some of the towns on the north coast. Just don't hire from Goldcar. Ever!

The famous zoo is overpriced and pity, but Masca and Anaga are ones of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

Get away from the hotel and pool and get around as much as possible. The island is so different from place to place and has so much to see and do. It really is an amazing place.

Rent a car and see the whole Island instead of just the main tourist resorts down south. We based ourselves in Santa Cruz which was a beautiful, safe city. People very helpful and you can live like locals do. Xmas was celebrated with exceptionally well decorated streets. New Year's night was a city party. Well done Santa Cruz!!

Car hire and petrol is so cheap and its the easiest way of getting around. Try visiting Teide at night to see the stars - there is no contamination up there and the views are breathtaking. Cold at this time of year 2.5 degrees so wrap up warm...
