Why rent a car in the Canary Islands?

The Canary Islands are a great place for renting a car. Unique in landscape and populated by fun-loving, child-friendly people, whether you choose to go to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, or one of the other islands, you won’t end up disappointed.

The extensive, varied landscapes of the Canary Islands are easily accessible by car. Almost all roads are well-developed, paved, and have two lanes. Only on Fuerteventura are there still some sand paths. In addition, the costs and petrol prices are low in the Canary Islands compared to European standastandards

Spain - Canary Islands

Top ways to enter Canary Islands

  • Gran Canaria Airport: Also known as Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Airport (LPA), the busiest airport in the Canary Islands handled more than 10 million travelers in 2022. Served by around 50 different airlines, the airport is a large hub for the low-cost carriers Ryanair and Binter Canarias. In addition to European connections, the airport has flights to and from Senegal, Gambia, and Cape Verde in nearby West Africa.
  • Tenerife South Airport: The busiest of the two Tenerife international airports, it handled over 10.8 million travelers in 2022. The airport is served by more than 60 different airlines, many of which fly to and from Tenerife for the whole year. 
  • Tenerife North Airport: Located near Santa Cruz, the largest city on Tenerife, this airport handles about 5.5 million travelers every year. Tenerife North has flights by 13 different airlines, with most of the traffic provided by Binter Canarias, Vueling, Ryanair and CanaryFly.
  • Lanzarote Airport: Also known as César Manrique Airport Lanzarote, the main airport of the northernmost of the Canary Islands handled over seven million travelers in 2022. The airport is served by more than 20 airlines, providing flights to and from such varied destinations as the United Kingdom, Germany, and Finland.
  • Fuerteventura Airport: Fuerteventura-El Matorral handles about 5.6 million travelers annually. The airport has flights by nearly 30 different airlines, including low-cost carriers like easyJet, Wizz Air, and Volotea.
  • La Palma Airport: Located on the southeastern coast of the island, La Palma Airport handled around 1.3 million travelers in 2022. The airport has flights by 14 different airlines, providing connections with destinations like Madrid, Amsterdam, London, and Berlin.
  • La Gomera Airport: Serving the picturesque island of the same name, La Gomera Airport has flights, provided by Binter Canarias, to and from only two destinations, the islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria. This makes La Gomera accessible from mainland Europe with a layover in one of the aforementioned islands.
  • El Hierro Airport: The westernmost of the Canary Islands has flights by only two airlines, Binter Canarias and CanaryFly. Like La Gomera Airport, it only has direct connections to the other Canary Islands, but a layover in Tenerife or Gran Canaria is a possibility.
  • By sea: Each one of the seven Canary Islands has at least one passenger ferry port. It is a good idea to look up the schedules and book tickets in advance; services are much more frequent during the warm months of the year, but tickets are also sold out more quickly. Most car renting companies do not allow bringing a rental car to another island. Therefore it is common the leave the rental car on the island and rent a new one upon arrival at the port.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Tenerife. The largest and most populous of the Canaries is also the most popular tourism destination in the archipelago. Famous for its developed, built-up coastline, entertainment opportunities, and Mount Teide, the third-largest active volcano in the world, Tenerife is visited by around 12.6 million travelers every year, more than five times the number of its permanent population.
  • Gran Canaria. The second-largest of the Canary Islands also has the highest population density, but getting a rental car gives you an opportunity to escape the crowds and see some of Gran Canaria’s picturesque highlights. These include the island capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the large sand dunes in Maspalomas and small surfing and diving spots on the northern coast of the island.
  • Fuerteventura. The second-largest island in the archipelago, Fuerteventura remains an uncharted territory if compared to Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Sparsely populated, it is home to beautiful beaches, ancient mountain villages, and some of the best surfing and kitesurfing opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic.
  • Lanzarote. The easternmost of the Canaries, Lanzarote is heavily influenced by the Saharan winds coming from nearby North Africa that contribute to its otherworldly volcanic landscapes. Other highlights of Lanzarote include the Timanfaya National Park, volcanic caves of César Manrique, and the nearby island of La Graciosa.
  • La Palma. Located in the northwestern part of the archipelago, La Palma offers a great blend of quiet, relaxed atmosphere and great tourism infrastructure. There’s plenty to see, too, from beautiful lighthouses to Ruta de los Volcanes, a scenic hiking route. 
  • La Gomera. Known for its unique whistling language, La Gomera is the perfect nature tourism destination. The island is full of impressive ravines, thick forests, and rugged, dramatic beaches. San Sebastian, La Gomera’s cute capital, is worth a look, too.
  • El Hierro. The smallest, least populated, and southernmost of the seven main Canary islands, El Hierro is a true off-the-beaten-path destination. El Hierro’s nature is as impressive as anywhere you’ll find in the archipelago, and the island also has impressive volcanic lava tubes that you can visit by joining a tour.
  • Teide. Standing at a height of 3,718 meters (12,198 feet), the mountain and volcano of Teide is the highest point not just in the Canaries, but in all of Spain. Located in Central Tenerife, the impressive peak is surrounded by a national park of the same name. To get to the summit, you can drive nearly all the way and then take a cable car for the final stretch. The rest of the area is known for great hiking and attractions like the Teide Observatory, which you can visit on a tour.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in the Canary Islands is the Kia Picanto. Travelers also like the VW Polo and the Renault Clio.

Driver's license requirements

  • Spain recognizes driver’s licenses from all the member states of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) if they are valid.
  • Important: Sources differ on whether you need to have an International Driver Permit (IDP) if you’re coming from outside the EU/EEA and are on a short visit. While your rental car company might permit you to rent a car with your valid foreign license, some sources claim that the Spanish police might not recognize your home license and will require you to have an IDP. Because of this, it’s probably safer to get an IDP and carry both your original license and the IDP with you.
  • Similarly, if your driver’s license doesn’t show your photograph, you might be required to have an IDP.
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years.
  • Some rental car suppliers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car supplier and category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.

Crossing borders

A Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands do not have any land borders.

Island hopping: It is possible to visit several islands with the same rental car during your trip to the Canaries by taking a ferry. Generally speaking, the ferry service is more active between the larger islands and between the islands that are closer to one another. So, for example, it’s quite easy to find a ferry between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, but if you wish to go from either of these islands to La Palma or Hierro, you will most likely need to switch ferries on Tenerife or Gran Canaria.

Only a few car rental companies permit picking up a rental car on one island and dropping it off on another. You can find the ones that do by entering your desired pickup and dropoff dates and times on our search. Similarly, most, but not all ferry companies permit bringing a rental car on deck, so it’s important to look this up in advance. The conditions and prices differ quite widely from company to company.

The ferry service is more active during the warmer months of the year, but the tickets also tend to sell out faster during the summer, so it’s a good idea to book them in advance.

Alternatively, you can explore each island with a different rental car, dropping one off on one island, traveling without a car, and then picking up a different car on the next island (different factors come into play, but this is often the cheaper option).

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in the Canary Islands is an economy, followed by mini and compact.

Top driving routes

  • Tenerife: The island offers a huge number of great day trips by car. We recommend driving one day up to Teide national park. By car, you can drive up to around 2,300 meters above sea level. The volcanic landscape almost looks like it's on another planet. There is also a cable car that goes up to 3,555 meters. From the,re it is possible to walk to the top of Mount Teide at 3,718 meters. However, prior approval is required for the summit climb. Other worthwhile day trips take you to Anaga Mountains, the island's capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the Teno Mountains and the north coast with highlights such as Buenavista del Norte, Garachico, Icod de los Vinos and Puerto de la Cruz.
  • Gran Canaria: On this island, don't miss the sand dunes of Maspalomas. They extend over 6 kilometers along the south coast. Hiking and camel riding are possible here. Even the most beautiful citins on the Canary Island are easily accessible by car. Our recommendations are the picturesque harbor district of Puerto de Mogán and the island's capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. In addition, you should definitely see the mountain landscape. You can drive up to the highest viewpoint on the island: Pico de las Nieves. Nearby, Roque Nublo offers a worthwhile hike.
  • Fuerteventura: Beach hopping by car is the best option here. The island offers long sandy beaches and turquoise sea. Don't miss the scenic coastal road that leads through the sand dunes of Corralejo. If you are not afraid of bumpy gravel roads, a trip to the long sandy beach of Cofete is also an unforgettable experience. Also worthwhile are trips to Betancuria, El Cotillo, Ajuy and La Pared.
  • Lanzarote: The Life's Work of César Manrique. The Canarian artist has contributed to almost all the important sights of the island: for example, the Mirador del Río, Jameos del Agua, his Fundación César Manrique and Jardín de Cactus. It is also thanks to the artist that most of the houses in Lanzarote are painted white with green window frames and doors. A drive through the Timanfaya National Park is also impressive. You can drive up to the Fire M,ountains where you change to the bus. You can explore various volcanic craters in the national park on foot. Other worthwhile places are El Golfo, Los Hervideros and the Papagayo beaches.
  • La Palma: After the volcanic eruption in September 2021, the landscape of the island has changed. It is now even more exciting to discover the partly newly created volcanic landscape. But that's not all that La Palma has to offer. The waterfalls of Los Tilos, the highest point of the island, Roque de los Muchachos, Mirador de la Cumbrecita and the beautiful island capital of Santa Cruz de La Palma are easily accessible by car.
  • La Gomera: You can even explore the comparatively small Canary Island on a day trip from Tenerife. Drive through the Garajonay National Park with its green, mystical laurel forests. There are also worthwhile hiking routes here. The path leads through the picturesque village of Vallehermoso to the most beautiful vantage point on the island: Mirador de Abrante in Agulo, which is worthwhile, too. Also worth a visit are the charming island capital of San Sebastián de La Gomera and Valle Gran Rey.
  • El Hierro: A real treasure for nature lovers! You can explore the island by car in two to three days. You should definitely visit the juniper trees of El Sabinar, the artistically designed restaurant at Mirador de La Peña and one of the natural pools that were formed from lava. Canarian pine forest, cows and sheep await you on the plateau of the island.

We were able to drive up to the highest peak, through beautiful scenery- then mix our trip up by going to the city, aquarium , sand dunes and vist other small coastal villages! Kids and adults alike enjoyed traveling around the island! All the roads in good condition and easy driving experience , didn’t get lost - used google maps on phone and was seamless! Didn’t get lost once!

We did a trip around the national park Teide and a full round roadtrip around the island. Since everything is going either up or down we had a lot of fun on the whole drive. The gas compared to the Netherlands was also super cheap. I spend only 45€ in total for 4 days!

It is definitely worth to rent a car in Fuerteventura. It gives lots of flexibility and can discover any places on the island. There are plenty of possibilities for hiking, you can just drive a bit, park the car and get lost in the island. With two hours driving you can move from south to the north of the island.

Double check the route, when you follow Google Navigation. Sometimes it will navigate you to the closed roads or to the road with wrong direction. Follow the road signs. Have a cable to connect the phone to the car, not all the cars support bluetooth connectivity.

Drive up to Tajeda is tortuous but worth the effort as views spectacular. From Las Palmas, go via Teror. Drive back down to Maspalomas includes stopoff at 360 viewpoint which should be enjoyed. We visited Aguinaguin old town which was relatively unspoilt - especially recommend the fish restaurant in the harbour area. We had a Renault Clio which had just enough power and was small enough to park!!

Make sure that you give the best instructions to your map/GPS device so you'll be taken to the right place. In Fuerteventura, the Riu Palace Jandia Hotel thinks they're a 4-5-star hotel, but they're not. There isn't even a visible sign at the arrival point so you know you're there. They have no valet - parking and no parking so arrival is a bit of a mess.

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.
