Top tips for renting a car at Santa Cruz de Tenerife Tenerife-Norte Airport
Car rental at Santa Cruz de Tenerife Tenerife-Norte Airport is a great way to get around the island of Tenerife. With several companies located on-site at the airport, it is easy to get off your flight and start exploring the island. A rental car will let you get to the more remote beaches and mountains that public transportation can’t reach, and unlike a taxi, it will be much cheaper.
While there are several public transportation options available from the airport, a Santa Cruz de Tenerife Tenerife-Norte Airport car rental is a great idea because it will cut transportation times in half. When driving a rental car, the time to the capital of Santa Cruz will only be 10min instead of 30min via bus. And it will provide more mobility to see the rest of the island, taking only 54min to reach Los Cristianos in the south, instead of 1h 45min by bus.
The airport’s busiest hours do coincide with rush hour in Santa Cruz, which has high congestion volumes on weekdays between 9 am and 4 pm. Friday’s are typically the worst traffic days in the city. If you are returning a rental car, try to travel outside of these times and make sure to leave plenty of time before your flight to ensure that you have time to return the car and check-in for your flight.
Since Tenerife is a mountainous island and much of its draw is the beauty of nature, if you are planning to do much driving outside of the city, consider renting a compact SUV. This will make it easier to reach remote beaches and mountains. It is also important to keep in mind that most cars in Europe are manual, so you will need to ask for an automatic. This may end up costing more.
