Top tips for hiring a car in Canary Islands

  • Hiring a car in the Canary Islands is a wonderful way to see this beautiful part of the Mediterranean, allowing you the flexibility to take to the beaches and villages with freedom. With many major car hire companies serving the various islands, you can be guaranteed to get a great deal from popular names such as Sixt, Hertz, Avis and many more. Whether you choose a 4x4 to take in the mountain roads in comfort or choose a convertible to let your hair down, no matter which island you decide to visit, you can enjoy your stay with hassle-free car hire.
  • The rules of the road in the Canary Islands are much like that of mainland Spain. However, island life always presents its own rules that tend to match the relaxed lifestyle. Be patient while driving in the Canary Islands, as buses and taxis may often expect you to give them right of way. The speed limit of 50 km/h (30 mph) in towns and 90 km/h (55 mph) in the country should be respected, due to the winding, narrow nature of the roads that could provide a challenge for foreign drivers. Also important to note is you will drive on the right-hand side of the road in the Canary Islands and may need to acclimate a bit first.
  • With your Canary Islands car hire, you can get additional add-ons to make your driving experience more pleasurable. If you have a family, you may need to include a car seat for your little one if they are under 1.35 m tall. You can also find your way around the islands much easier if you have satellite navigation included with your car hire, and perhaps consider a second driver option to lighten the driving load.
  • A careful and moderate speed is always suggested when driving in the Canary Islands. The roads are well-maintained and an economy car can easily navigate with ease, but the roads do tend to get quite windy as you explore the mountainous areas and villages. You won’t have to worry about borders with your Canary Islands car hire, as the islands themselves are small, some of which only a few miles in diameter. Fuel is easy to come by but you may find that your local attendant on the island doesn’t speak English, so brush up on your Spanish and don’t forget to tip.
