Hiring a car in La Gomera is a great solution due to the fact the island is still (for the most part) quite rural and public transport doesn’t reach all the spots you may wish to visit. If you would like to truly get to know the region, car hire will ensure you can get to see the far-flung parts, such as vast volcanic mountain tops where great hiking adventures await. Beach-hopping is also made easier when you have a vehicle at your disposal.
Despite being small, La Gomera has very well-maintained roads with not much traffic, even at peak tourist times. An economy vehicle can handle the terrain as easily as a sturdier 4x4. Most of the locals don’t take risks on the road due to the winding nature of the island's layout. When looking for petrol, you will be able to find many locally owned service stations, where attendants may even live on the property. Make sure your Spanish is up to scratch to get service, and don’t skimp on your car hire insurance when you are in a foreign country with different driving rules.
For the most part, you can hire a car if you are over 21 years of age. Some privately owned agencies may require you to be at least 25 or will charge you a young driver’s fee. You will need to have your international driver's permit with you as well as your local hometown license. Don’t forget to also take your photographic ID, such as a passport, and your credit card. If you wear glasses, your car hire company may ask you to bring a second pair, as it is law to have a second pair in the car in case of damage to the first.
