Hire car touring round Tenerife

 
  Car hire locations  
     
 

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands group, and is the entertainment capital of the province. Bars and restaurants do a brisk business after nightfall, and this perhaps explains the quiet daytime scene. Tenerife city is in the lush green north of the island, which is divided by a mountain range. To the South the island is hot and dry.

With an ideal climate and beaches of fine sand, beautiful scenery, and a great night life, Tenerife is possibly the happiest of what the Roman fleets referred to as "the happy islands".

Tenerife was the home of one of the world's proudest and most fierce peoples, the Guanches, and it took Spain eighteen months to prevail over them, in 1495.

Their conquest was not gently done, and even up until the 1970's under General Franco, it was illegal to discuss what happened then. Now, with more liberal attitudes in fashion it is possible for the first time to visit the Tenerife Museum, with its relics of the Guanche people.

It's all part of the "Canaries experience" and the use of a car will help you get around to the many historic and natural beauty spots on offer on Tenerife. "The Happy Islands"

How to make the most of rental car services on the Canary Islands

Tenerife is volcanic. After hours it simply erupts, and round spots like Tramp's, Bobby's and Busby's there are plenty of "colourful ladies" and "cheerful young chaps" looking for company. So if it's a quiet holiday you want, jump in the hire car and head off to the mountains. Here there is a real volcano, the third tallest in the world, in fact. The surroundings are lush, and if you find it too quiet, well, back in the car and head for Bobby's!

They drive on the right in the Canaries (sensible folk), and a green UK licence requires an International Driving Permit but a pink UK licence does not. Minimum driving age is 18.

You can pick up a hire vehicle at a number of our locations on tne Canaries. Conditions vary a little from place to place, but nothing too extraordinary. And if you'd like to ramble round a bit, perhaps our "Places to Stay" page may assist. Then take a car and head off round Tenerife,you will enjoy it.
