Unless you plan to stay at your resort, you definitely need to rent a car while there. Rent a small car because parking is almost always difficult and the mountain roads are narrow.

Tenerife was lovely and a car is essential if you want to see the island.. However, in many areas the roads are extremely steep, narrow and twisty, even in towns. Get the smallest car you can. There is a huge weather difference between the north and south. The north is much wetter with lots of greenery, forests and lush vegetation. The south is warmer and sunnier. We were in the north and getting to the sunnier south was not easy as we had to go over a 3,600' mountain pass.

Best way to see the island. Get out n about rather than stay in hotel / resort. Decent road infrastructure and some fun hairpin bends in the mountains. Need to be careful tho of others at roundabouts - some crazy driving!

Hiring a car helped us to discover that there is a lot more to Tenerife than just sun sand and sea.

Renting from Orlando couldn't be easier. Good value rental, professional staff and easy process throughout. Close to the airport and didn't have to wait long for the pick up shuttle. Easy drop off and again didn't have to wait long before getting the shuttle back to the airport. Fuerteventura was easy to drive in. Relatively few cars on the road and other drivers were courteous. Would certainly rent from Orlando again when visiting the Island.
