Car Rental In Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is the third largest of the Canary Islands, and one of Spain’s most popular holiday destinations, attracting visitors from the UK, northern Europe and beyond. Many people understandably come for the great year round weather, and the island is often said to have the best climate in the world. The island’s Gran Canaria airport is Spain’s 5th busiest, with over 10 million passengers using it every year. Over 50 airlines fly into the airport, including many so-called budget airlines, and since 2010 it has been a major hub for Ryanair. The airport offers direct flights to many of Europe’s most important business and holiday destinations, including London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Lanzarote and Tenerife.

Gran Canaria offers all the facilities you might expect, and if you have just landed and need car rental in Gran Canaria airport offers plenty of options. Several smaller car rental companies are represented, as well as most of the larger and more well known car hire companies. Passengers arriving on the island can book a car when they arrive, and also have the option of saving time by researching rates and booking ahead of time through the airport’s website. As the airport isn’t huge, picking up your car is typically quick and easy, allowing you to be enjoying the open road soon after landing.

Although Gran Canaria has an excellent network of buses that cover most of the island, renting a car is one of the best ways to see this beautiful island, and offers the flexibility to go where and when you want. Many drivers stick to the network of motorways, although it’s a shame not to get off the beaten track and explore some of the narrower and more winding mountain roads. One of the most spectacular drives is the twisting road that crosses the island and reaches heights of 6,000 feet, offering spectacular mountain views and the chance to explore unspoiled villages. Other must see sights that are easy to reach by car include the only coffee plantation in Europe, the historic centre of Las Palmas which is a world heritage site, and the cobbled streets and old buildings of San Bartolome.
