Car Hire:

Cars can be hired from the airport on arrival. All the well known companies as well as some of the local companies are based at Tenerife South Airport as well as in all the main tourist resorts.

Cars of all sizes and classes are available. Normally the longer you hire the better the deal. Unlimited mileage, car insurance and breakdown service is normally included.

You will need to show a current passport and drivers licence for any person wishing to drive.


There are plenty of metered Taxis in all the main resorts, whether you want an island tour or just taking home after a night out. Taxis can be flagged down if they are showing a green light or alternatively look out for the taxi ranks.

Public Bus Service (TITSA)

These green buses, as well as being cheap they are a fantastic way to get around the Island. Timetables can be obtained from the local Tourist Office or your Hotel reception. If you are planning to use them often, it would be worth getting a 'BONO' card which gives you a 30% discount. They go most places on the Island, even up to Mount Teide.


Ferries on the south of the Island go out of Los Cristianos port. Both 'Fred Olsen' and 'Armas' go to La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. Timetables obtainable from the local Tourist Office, Hotel Reception or by visiting Los Cristianos Port.
