North Tenerife Los Rodeos Airport Guide

Car Hire

Tenerife North Airport, formerly called Los Rodeos Airport, is one of the two airports serving the Canary Islands, Spain. The other airport, Tenerife South, is the busier of the two. That said, Tenerife North is still remarkably busy, with over four million passengers in 2011. This shows the popularity of the Canary Islands as an island destination for many Europeans seeking to escape from the cold winter to the warm, beaches of the Spanish islands. The airport mainly serves the capital of Tenerife Island—Santa Cruz.

Who to Book With
Car rental suppliers can be found on Floor 0 of the airport terminal close the baggage claim of the Arrivals area. The agencies with counters here include Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Cicar and AutoReisen. Intending travellers will benefit from doing an online comparison of rates before they fly. The airport's car park for hire cars is found outside the terminal building across the street.

Need to Know Essentials
When you collect your vehicle, you need to present the following:

- UK driving permit (International Driving Permit is also acceptable)
- Credit card used in the booking
- Passport or any document to confirm identity
- Booking confirmation

For additional information see our FAQs.

While parking can be easy to find, visitors will notice that locals tend to have loose standards when it comes to parking, squeezing cars between two properly parked adjacent cars. Most country roads in Tenerife remain quiet, which gives some drivers the excuse to make like a racing car driver and speed up. Be on the lookout for these. There are still some drivers who use the island's laidback ambience as a loophole to break rules and use a mobile phone while driving. Remember that in Spain, only mobile phones with hands-free sets can be used. While driving on Tenerife, you will come upon the annoyingly slow delivery trucks. It's best to keep your cool as most are considerate enough to allow you to pass them.

See our Guide to driving in Spain.


Tenerife has limited public transport. From the airport, only buses and taxis are available. This is why many prefer to self-drive. Many realise that seeing Tenerife's breathtaking landscape behind the wheel of your own vehicle is an experience second to none. To get to the centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, located along the coast from the airport, you need only drive along the TF-5. The distance is about nine miles.

The airport is situated right outside San Cristobal de la Laguna, a historic World Heritage town on Tenerife. La Laguna, as it is called, is connected to Santa Cruz by a tram line about eight miles in length. The tram takes about 40 minutes each way and a ticket costs about £2.

Taxis can be found waiting outside the Arrivals area on Floor 0. Note that for services from the airport, a surcharge of £1.4 is applied.

Taxi prices:
Tenerife North Airport to La Laguna is around £8
Tenerife North Airport to Santa Cruz is around £15

A few bus routes travel between Tenerife North Airport and the towns and cities in Tenerife. Like the taxi cabs, the buses are found on Floor 0 outside the Arrivals area. Route 102 runs to Santa Cruz and the ride costs a little over £2. Route 343 connects the airport to the south, including Tenerife South Airport. A ticket costs just a little over £8.


Tenerife North Airport has one terminal building. There are 37 check-in counters and 10 boarding gates. Mostly regional and domestic flights land at the airport, with the bulk of the international arrivals to the Canary Islands arriving at Tenerife South.

The general car park is found in front of the terminal building, just a couple of minutes' walk. Parking for six hours costs about £1.

The airport is not equipped with a Wi-Fi service nor does it have internet access points in the terminal building for public use.

Information Services
The airport’s information desk can be found in the Arrivals hall on Floor 0.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
