KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in El Médano

  • Car hire in El Médano provides an ideal opportunity to explore the town and the greater Granadilla de Abona area of Tenerife without trying to figure out how the public transport system works or trying to find a taxi driver that'll take you everywhere without charging you a fortune. There are various places worth driving to that'll take less than an hour, including the famous Paisaje Lunar close to the centre of Tenerife, or Boca Tauce, which is about a 20-minute drive from Paisaje Lunar. You could also take a 45-minute drive towards the northern tip and check out Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
  • Most companies offering car hire in El Médano also provide services at Tenerife South Airport, which is likely to be your arrival and departure point, so is a great place to grab a hired car to avoid public transportation. Companies like Avis, Europcar and Goldcar all have company desks located in the Arrivals Hall on the Ground Level of the airport. Booking El Médano car hire online through KAYAK is one of the best ways to save money and time at the airport and have a representative meet you when you arrive as in-person hiring can be expensive.
  • The car hire process in El Médano is as easy as it gets, but driving on the streets can prove a little harder. The roads on the outskirts are well-maintained and wide enough to accommodate most vehicles, although inside the centre of El Médano, the roads become a lot more narrow and there are many cars parked along the side of the road. Pedestrians walk along the roads as if it were a pedestrian zone, and bicycles and motorbikes weave in and out. Remember to stick to the right-hand side of the road, which could take a bit of getting used to if you drive on the left at home.
  • The biggest difficulty with driving in El Médano is the narrow roads in the town centre and the lack of traffic lights and roundabouts to direct traffic. Avoid driving at night if you can, there is little lighting on the roads and it's difficult to see in the evening. Be aware of cyclists and pedestrians in and around the town centre, and take care when you're around local drivers who tend to change lanes without warning. Cars park along the side of the road in the town centre, which makes the streets narrower, so drive slowly in these areas.

The major motorways and highways have a higher speed limit and tend to be between 110 km/h and 120 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in El Médano?

    Most of the parking within the town walls is free on-street parking. there aren't always dedicated parking spaces, but locals tend to park wherever they can. If you're travelling to the beaches or nearby attractions, there will always be parking spaces available. These will either be dedicated car parks or on-street parking. Few of these charge you for entry but there may be guards looking after the cars.

Cons:

An unfriendly lady at the pickup desk tricked us into the insurance fraud. "Oh, I see that you're not insured." Yes we were (allianz), but I couldn't prove it at the time.

Cons:

Paid a security deposit on my credit card in Euros and it was held as a pending transaction in British pounds. On return of the car, the authorisation was cancelled. In doing so, and because the exchange rate had changed, I was charged £4.50. Hertz essentially made money out of a non-completed transaction. Car hire itself was fine. I was encouraged to upgrade the car as the 1 litre fiesta wouldn't be suitable for driving around the island - it was fine! It made it up to the cable car station on Teide so don't be fooled for a bigger car if you don't want it! There was only 2 of us in the car though! If you put 4 adults in that car then yes you may struggle.

Pros:

Return was easy enough. Car was clean when I got it.

Cons:

Pick up was awful. Representative included insurance in price without asking or explaining coverage. When I questioned this, he was belligerent and threatening. Also gave terrible directions for finding parked car. Car was underpowered Hyundai, when I'd reserved an Opel or similar.

Car hire insurance in El Médano

Some El Médano car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in El Médano.

Deductible
