Tenerife Car Hire
Your guide to car hire in Tenerife. Insider information from people who live there.
Whilst visiting Tenerife you may wish to hire a car so that you can travel from the airport direct to your hotel at your own time and leisure. Thus ensuring you do not have to spend hours on a coach whilst dropping off other holiday makers at their hotels. Enabling you to start your holiday even sooner.
We would advise you to book your Tenerife car hire vehicle before leaving the UK to ensure that you have a car waiting for you once arriving at the airport. You can often benefit from many pre booking discounts this way too.
Having a hire car also gives you the freedom to see the many places and attractions in Tenerife without any of the restrictions and expense of coach tours. See the hidden Tenerife, visit all those beaches and coves usually inaccessible to coaches and buses. Enjoy the whole of the island at your own time and leisure, visiting any place you wish day and night. Amazon do many detailed road maps of the island to help you plan your journey.
A hire car company our family have used and recommend is Holiday Autos. They are the world's largest online car rental broker and offer low, fully inclusive prices with a best price guarantee. They also offer a wide choice of cars with the most popular being the compact or economy model. They are the most-visited car rental site in the UK and provide an award-winning service.
