Top tips for renting a car in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

  • Tenerife is renowned as one of the most beautiful places to go in the world. The island stretches about 60 miles in length and features two massive parks, scenic beaches and, of course, the capital city Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The island is best explored by car to reach all the remote corners or do an island road trip and splash around at the fantastic beaches like the Playa de las Américas, which is a 50-minute drive from Santa Cruz center.
  • Regardless of whether travelers arrive at the North or South Tenerife Airport, there are going to be rental cars waiting to be picked up. Both airports offer cars from well-known companies like Hertz, Sixt, or Europcar. With a rental car, you’ll get to Santa Cruz center in no time (21 minutes from the North Airport and 41 minutes from the South Airport, to be precise).
  • Navigating through Santa Cruz de Tenerife can be a challenge as street names are being changed regularly, meaning the street names on your map might differ from the current ones. Get a good app like Waze or Google Maps to plan your trip ahead and avoid getting lost. Honking is also way more common in Tenerife and can be used to indicate impatience or that a car is blocking the way; it may also be used as a thank-you for letting a driver pass by instead of flashing the headlights.
  • Between 8 and 10 am in the mornings, Santa Cruz’s streets can be clogged up with commuter traffic. Try to avoid the peak times, especially on the TF5, and plan for at least an extra 1.5 hours when going to the airport. The least traffic is expected between 12 and 2 pm, as many businesses and people have a siesta, allowing the roads and city to become quieter.

Always double check what is covered by the insurance, as some road conditions on the island are not perfect.

  • Speed limits are usually clearly posted and given in kilometers per hour. In the city, 50 km/h (31 mph) is permitted and 100 km/h (62 mph) on rural highways. On the freeway, up to 120 km/h (74 mph) is allowed. There is also a minimum speed requirement on the freeway of 60 km/h (37 mph), unless there is a traffic jam or a clearly posted sign requiring drivers to slow down.

  • The average price for gas on Santa Cruz de Tenerife lies around €1.94 per liter, which is about $4.28 per gallon. There are various gas stations around both airports to refill the tank before returning the rental car, but not all of them have 24/7 service. The Fuel Station or Repsol Hoyos Blancos are among the 24/7 stations.

  • On-street parking is very restricted in the city, so it is best to choose a hotel with an included parking space or find a parking lot or parking garage such as the Plaza de Espana garage or the Mercado de Nuestra Senora de Africa Market parking garage. If you don’t mind a stroll through the city, you can also opt for the free parking lot beside the Auditorio.
