To get the ultimate sunny experience, opt for a convertible that will allow you to explore the island with style. When cruising around the city, a smaller car is also a good choice, as finding a parking spot becomes considerably easier with one. Always double check what is covered by the insurance, as some road conditions on the island are not perfect.
Speed limits are usually clearly posted and given in kilometers per hour. In the city, 50 km/h (31 mph) is permitted and 100 km/h (62 mph) on rural highways. On the freeway, up to 120 km/h (74 mph) is allowed. There is also a minimum speed requirement on the freeway of 60 km/h (37 mph), unless there is a traffic jam or a clearly posted sign requiring drivers to slow down.
The average price for petrol on Santa Cruz de Tenerife lies around €1.94 per liter, which is about $4.28 per gallon. There are various petrol stations around both airports to refill the tank before returning the hire car, but not all of them have 24/7 service. The Fuel Station or Repsol Hoyos Blancos are among the 24/7 stations.
On-street parking is very restricted in the city, so it is best to choose a hotel with an included parking space or find a parking lot or parking garage such as the Plaza de Espana garage or the Mercado de Nuestra Senora de Africa Market parking garage. If you don’t mind a stroll through the city, you can also opt for the free parking lot beside the Auditorio.
