KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

  • When planning your trip, it is important to figure out where to stay in the city. But you should also consider where to rent a car. If you want a cheap car rental in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, numerous options are available, so whatever your budget, you're sure to find something. While those arriving at the city center can find a vehicle rental provider there, visitors arriving at the airport should think about renting a car at the airport because it is more convenient. You have the option of hiring a car either in person or online at either location.
  • If you want to lessen your influence on the environment and encourage renewable energy, an electric Santa Cruz de Tenerife car rental is a fantastic choice. The island has an expanding network of charging stations, and the city has been working to promote the usage of electric vehicles. The Hotel Academia Santa Cruz, La Casita del 7, and Casa Doa Carmela GuestHouse are just a few of the city's hotels with electric charging stations.
  • When renting a car in the city, there are requirements that you must meet. To rent, you must first be at least 21 years old. Expect to pay an additional daily fee if you're under 25. With more powerful cars, the minimum age requirement is typically greater, so double-check with your car rental provider. The second requirement is an active driver's license from your country of residence and at least one year of driving experience. You must also provide a passport or identification card bearing a name similar to the one on the license. Finally, while making an online car reservation, you must show a credit card, debit card, or PayPal to make a payment.
  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Santa Cruz de Tenerife for $16 or less
  • Book your rental car in Santa Cruz de Tenerife at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Santa Cruz de Tenerife are around 77% more expensive than other car types, on average

Car was good. I filled up the tank ten miles from the airport before turning it in and they still charged me a fine because the tank wasn’t completely full. $58 for ten miles.
