Tenerife South Airport

Tenerife is definitely one of the most popular of the Canary Islands. It's not really a surprise as to why; combining natural beauty with family attractions and excellent nightlife for a younger crowd, it caters to all tastes. From towering mountains to lush forests and miles of beaches it makes a beautiful destination for a holiday year round.

If you're visiting Tenerife, make sure that you hire a car. It will allow you to get the best experience of the island traversing the nooks and crannies that you just can't access with public transport.

What are the top things to see and do on Tenerife?

An island of volcanic descent, you won't be able to miss the inspiring peak of Mount Teide. It's the third largest volcano in the world and the highest point in Spain, including the entire mainland. Even the journey toward this giant is wonderful and once you reach the top, the never ending views will take your breath away.

Visit Los Gigantes, also referred to as the cliffs of the giants. Look in awe at the remarkable sheer cliff faces at a height of 800m in places. The journey should take around 45 minutes by car; why not take a boat trip out to view them in their entirety.

Los Cristianos is another exciting area to visit. There's plenty of hustle and bustle with a busy beach and plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs yet once a fishing village, it still retains its traditional charm. Siam Park is a really fun attraction to enjoy here with wave machines, flumes, a 100ft high slide an aquarium. The neighbouring resort of Playa de las Americas is much busier and more commercial but still worth a visit.

What can I see further afield with a rental car from Tenerife South Airport?

Why not visit the island's capital Santa Cruz, surrounded by the beautiful Anaga Mountains it's a bustling port city perfect for shopping. You can easily do the journey in well under an hour.

One of the most popular attractions in Tenerife is undoubtedly the Teide National Park in the centre of the island, the home to the largest mountain in the whole of Spain. You can reach the summit of the volcano by cable car with stunning views awaiting you.

Journey to the north of the island and spend a day visiting the town of Garachico. The streets here are speckled with tapas bars and traditional buildings giving it a distinct Spanish feel. The nearby lava rock pools add another enjoyable to trip here!

The IATA code for Tenerife South Airport is TFS.

"All inclusive insurance"

"the explanation of where to pick up the car was clearly explained and easy to find, also the drop off. The car was in good order, and had the fair fuel policy,where you only pay for the fuel that you use, which is a condition that I always go for, also good insurance. All round a good experience."
