Location information for Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is best known as a great destination for a beach getaway, but it also has lots more to offer. Quaint towns and villages with white-washed homes are a joy to explore alongside the Spanish island's museums, historic monuments and authentic local cuisine. As well as stunning beaches and lush greenery, there's a wealth of wildlife to be admired, including many endangered species of birds. A variety of picturesque scenes are waiting to be explored in what has been dubbed the ‘Miniature Continent'.

Transport

[transport]

Buses are the main form of transport in Gran Canaria, but their schedules are not always convenient. Avoid planning your days around bus timetables by booking car rental in Gran Canaria, the most convenient way to get around the island. Gran Canaria International Airport near Las Palmas, the capital, is the main air gateway, while ferries run from the capital's port to neighbouring islands including Tenerife.

Car Hire Gran Canaria

Car hire in Gran Canaria is available at the airport, in the capital and in all major resorts. Europcar, Avis and Hertz are just some of the companies available here. In order to get the best price on the most ideal vehicle, visitors are advised to compare car hire rates before travelling.

Driving

Outside of the capital, traffic is rarely congested in Gran Canaria, making driving here pleasant and safe, not to mention cheap due to affordable petrol prices. Drivers should take special care when driving along coastal and mountain roads, always staying as far from the edge as possible. Although these roads can be a little hair-raising, they offer stunning views out to sea.

Things To See and Do

Gran Canaria is well-known for its two main beaches, Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles, and fantastic climate. But there's more to do here than relaxing and getting a tan. Visitors can try their hand at outdoor activities like hiking and surfing, visit local water parks and zoos such as Palmitos, or explore remote villages for a taste of culture. There's also a great nightlife scene in the main resorts, with a range of clubs, pubs and casinos for after-dark entertainment.

Best Time To Visit

The climate in Gran Canaria is warm throughout the year and there are many hours of sunshine each day. There are, however, variations and the higher inland areas of the island can be quite cool at times. From July to September, the peak holiday season, the maximum temperature is often above 30°C. Visitors who like slightly cooler weather and less congestion may prefer to take their trip in the spring or autumn months. Even in the winter months, maximum temperatures can be in the low 20's (°C).

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 121CarHire.com 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). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
