Can I also rent a car in Playa de las Américas?

Beach in Playa de las Américas

Of course, you can rent a car in Playa de las Américas, as quite a few smaller providers have set up shops in addition to the offices of the usual car rental companies. However, looking at what's on offer at 16 kilometers away car rental companies at Tenerife South Airport (TFS) may be worthwhile, as you can hop right into your rental car after your short flight to head to Playa de las Américas. Reserve a car from home and save yourself from long lines at local car rental agencies.

Which insurance is best for my car rental in Playa de las Américas?

Downtown Playa de las Américas

Even though the traffic on Tenerife is relatively manageable and accidents are rather rare, you should still take out "fully comprehensive insurance without excess"and also choose a cover sum as high as possible In your liability insurance.
In addition, it makes sense to think about where you want to move around with your rental car. Would you like to only stay on the well-developed roads or do you want to try a detour into imponderable terrain? Then you should take out an additional glass or underbody insurance if necessary.

What do I do if the rental car I booked is damaged when I pick it up?

Beach and Seawater in Playa de las Américas

Although it shouldn’t, it could happen, especially in the high season, that minor defects in a rental car couldn’t be fixed in a hurry. Scratched rims, a scratch on the bumper or a dirty seat are things that you should not let go without a second thought. Here it is advisable to directly consult the employee of the rental car company, to record the defects in writing and to especially take photos, if it is not possible to exchange the car. So you ensure that you later when returning the rental car, will not be held responsible for the defects. Should a technical defect appear, which occurs after driving off please contact directly your car rental company, they will help you guaranteed quickly.
