Tenerife and the Canary Islands in general are a great destination. Is a vacation in Tenerife worthwhile in winter? Tenerife, thanks to its geographical location, maintains temperatures of up to 22 degrees from December to February. The Canary Island is therefore ideally suited as a winter destination. A special feature, despite these warm temperatures, is the ski resort of Pico del Teide. So from December to February, the warm temperatures can be enjoyed on the coast and you can go skiing anyway. This contrast makes Tenerife the absolute winter insider tip. To get the most out of your Tenerife trip, we recommend booking a cheap car rental at Tenerife Airport.

Where do I pick up my rental car at Tenerife Airport? Depending on the arrival time and airline, you will be able to pick up your luggage at Tenerife Airport (TFS) either on level -1 or on level 0, and then pass through customs, from where you will reach the counter of your car rental company in just a few steps. If the corresponding counter on level -1 is not manned, you will certainly find a contact person on level 0, as all car rental companies have a counter on both levels.
Thanks to your rental car you can easily reach both the north and the south of the island. The journey time from the airport to the capital of Tenerife is about 40 minutes and the route is very well signposted. Go with your rental car in your resort and the surrounding area on a journey of discovery and let the volcanic island of Tenerife captivate you.
