La Palma Airport Guide

Car Hire

Located about five miles south of Santa Cruz de la Palma on the stunning east coast of La Palma Island, La Palma Airport is the primary entry point for millions of visitors headed for the sun and sand of the Canary Islands. The airfield is around 25 minutes’ drive from the awe-inspiring volcanic peaks of Cumbre Vieja National Park and about 15 minutes’ drive from the enchanting Plaza Espana in central Santa Cruz. Getting to these sites and the island’s fabulous beach resorts is best done via car hire in La Palma Airport. However, other ground transport options available from the airport include city buses, which operate during limited hours, as well as taxis.

Who to Book With
La Palma Airport passengers can choose from a wide range of vehicles from a number of reputable companies, including international brands Avis, Hertz and Europcar, as well as local firms Cicar and Autos Ancar. Rental desks are situated on the lower level of the terminal, directly outside of the Baggage Reclaim exit doors.

Need to Know Essentials
When collecting your vehicle at La Palma Airport, be sure to have the following documentation ready:

- An un-expired driver’s licence
- A valid credit card in the primary driver’s name (the one used for the booking)
- Your reservation confirmation

For more info read our FAQ's.

Spanish driving regulations are similar to UK road rules; seatbelts are compulsory for all passengers, mobile phone use while driving is prohibited and children 12 years of age or younger are not allowed to sit in the front seat. Be aware that the drink drive limit in Spain is just 25mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood. Spain drives on the right so British drivers should be extra cautious when leaving petrol stations and car parks as it is a common mistake to turn to the left side of the road. Roads on La Palma can be curvy and steep, particularly on the west side of the island.

Have a look at our Spain guide for more information on driving here.

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).
