Car Hire Tenerife South Airport
Tenerife South Airport is the second airport in Tenerife and as the name suggests is located on the Southern part of the island.
You'll fly into this airport if you are looking to go to resorts such as Playa de Americas, Costa Adeje, Los Gigantes and the Teide National Park.
The South airport is the far busier of the two getting over 3x the yearly passenger traffic of the North airport. Therefore it's also better connected in terms of car hire, taxis and other public transport.

Prices As Low As £7/p Day - What's The Catch?
Well there isn't really a catch, as such, but you need to be careful when hiring a car in Spain generally, which includes Tenerife South Airport. There are a few things that are different in Spain when you're hiring a car in comparison to the UK, so we've detailed a few of the common complaints we often hear about:
Additional Charges: Often car hire companies in Spain will try hard sell you on additional charges, a common one is protecting your quite high excess, paying for additional drivers and some include an admin fee on top of your rental, but not all. We stress if you read the T&Cs you will be able to find a rental in Spain at a fantastic price without being stung.
Upgrade: The language barrier also sometimes can complicate this, again car rental companies at the airport often try and upsell so they may offer you an upgrade, but make it sound more like "your in luck". Ensure that you are not paying for the upgrade before receiving the car. This is only usually the case with smaller Spanish rental companies such as Goldcar or Centauro.
Full To Full Fuel Policy: People can be a little prickly about this one, in Spain and well most other countries car hire works on a full to full policy, meaning that you get the car with a full tank and need to return it with a full tank.
The nearest petrol station if you do have a full to full policy from a car at Tenerife South is the BP station in Atogo which is just on the other side of the TF-1 and it's around 1km outside of the airport, or about a 5 minute drive.
Tenerife South Airport - Other Useful Information
- If your planning on driving up and around Mount Teide then we would recommend a four wheel drive car due to the rural roads and areas surrounding it.
- If the arrows on the road are pointing forward it means that you have the right of way, and inverted triangle means you must give way.
- Parking around hotels and resorts can generally be quite hard so make sure you plan well ahead, especially if you want to go to Siam Park or any other resorts.
