Car Travel

Most travelers rent a car for at least part of their stay on the Canaries, as this is by far the best way to explore the countryside. Note that the roads are not always kind to those with vertigo; they often curve over high mountain cliffs with nothing but the sea below. Mountain roads are often narrow, which can be hair-raising if you meet a bus coming the other way.

Car Rental

Car-rental companies abound on every island. Reservations are usually necessary in high season. Cicar and Europcar, with branches in all the airports and major towns on all seven islands, tend to have the best rates.
