Car Hire Canary Islands

Book your cheap car hire car hire from locations all across the Canary Islands. We have cars available at all the major locations on the islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura including all the airports and city centre locations providing low cost Canary Island car hire.

The Canaries consists of 7 larger islands (Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma, Gomera, Hierro) and a few smaller ones (Alegranza, Graciosa, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este, Roque del Oeste und Lobos). The landscape of each island is very different to each other. The islands all have a constant fairly high temperature throughout the year due to their close proximity to the north west coast of Africa.
