Gran Canaria Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Gran Canaria Airport! Then head to nearby Las Palmas; in particular, the central Triana district, which is home to many of the city’s attractions and performance venues. Drive to the historic Vegueta area to see its beautiful buildings and check out the great bars and restaurants. Make sure you see the unique architecture and parks in the Barrio San Jose neighborhood, too.

One of the biggest attractions in the Canary Islands is, of course, the beach. Playa del Canteras is Gran Canaria’s iconic beach and is located right in Las Palmas, but with a rental car you can reach less crowded beaches outside the city, too. There are lots of opportunities to snorkel, surf, and kayak. And make sure you drive inland to the Tejeda Mountains to check out the spectacular views.

The island of Gran Canaria might be small, but there’s so much to see. Why not get a longer term car rental deal, extend your vacation, and explore more? You may even be able to pick up your rental car at Gran Canaria Airport and take it on a ferry to another island. Start planning your adventure now!

Gran Canaria Airport is also known as Gando Airport, Aeropuerto de Gran Canaria, and Gran Canaria–Las Palmas.

The island has some nice smooth roads.

Car certainly needed if one wish to enjoy out of city sights and also for travelling to places outside the regular tourist tracks. Rent a small car as mountain roads are in places very narrow with steep climbs where turns of 180 is common. A longer car will cause problems.

Having a car to explore the island was a highlight of our trip. Decide before you travel what approach you would like to take towards the deposit/excess waiver insurance. We saw our options were: Independent Excess Insurance purchased pre-trip, which will be cheaper but likely involve more stress/paper work if a claim is required Purchase cover directly from the car hire firm (which we noticed was cheaper to do at collection, rather than ahead of time) which will be more expensive but possibly easier Accept that a deposit is at risk We went with option 1, but a lack of trust in the car hire industry still made the hand over of the hire car a constant worry.
