 Tenerife car rental - legacylad
I’m self catering 8-23/12 and earlier this year rented from InterCar/Goldcar at TFS which ended in tears. I won’t use them again.
A car isn’t a necessity but I like the convenience of one if I fancy a drive around the island, walking in various parts of the island, popping to stock up at the supermarket.
Car hire ain’t cheap....Sixt, Thrifty, Keddy are all circa €140 full to full for the duration. Has anyone used these rental companies at TFS? Alternatively, I may enquire at local rental offices once I arrive.
Any recommendations please...Cicar & Canarias rentals are even more expensive.

I go to Tenerife twice a year. The best rental company for me is Autoreisen. They may not be the cheapest but their charges include full insurance. i believe Which also recommend them.

Wow you're not kidding when you say they are not the cheapest

€ 334 is their best price

I’m used to paying €35 for 15+ days at Alicante, with either Firefly or OKCars. And thats with full2full fuel. Got my own £40 annual CDW insurance, which works, as I found out!
At those prices I may have to endure my Tenerife based friends nutty driving. Which scares me. A lot.

Last time I hired a car in Tenerife I found it cheaper to just hire from a backstreet shop close to hotel. *

* it was a 950cc Fiat UNO with dodgy brakes as I found out coming back down Teide ....

Does anyone have any experiences good or bad with Olecar? I'm looking for car hire from Barcelona to go to Andorra for a few days in February. The combination of extra insurance and winter tyres can be much more than the daily rental for instance OK Rent a car are charging e40 per day insurance and 11 for snow chains. All in Olecar seem reasonable.

I often split car rental periods. On an 8 week trip there are normally 3 rental periods, coinciding with a weekend in Alicante or such, so no big deal as the airport is only a 75 minute drive from my normal accommodation and we often travel away for a few days. Don’t want to get cabin fever.
For the first 7 days of my upcoming trip I could get a small car for €21 from Rhodium. Full to full, free cancellation. Then I looked at TrustPilot reviews. Very discouraging.
Autoreisen, whom I’ve never heard of, have excellent reviews, so I think I’ll book online with them....€105 for a VW Polo. Slightly more than a C3 which a friend had a few weeks ago and it wasn’t a very nice piece of kit compared to my C Max. Worth an extra €10 for a minter ( haha) if they deliver as per the booking.

Prices have crashed then. I don’t think EUR 112 is too bad a price at all. Autoreisen are a good company to deal with. Have used them several times in Gran Canaria and Lanzarote and rate them with Cicar as about the best hire company in the Canaries.

Was out in Tenerife two weeks ago and used Cicar for three day hire , cost Euro equivalent of £79 all in, got a brand new Opel Corsa and a completely professional and painless pick up and drop off.

Could have got it cheaper but the good reviews online for Cicar swung it for me.

Am still now in pain from a bad back after going Jetskiing in rough conditions and hitting a wave all wrong and taking off and then dropping around 6ft at around 50 mph ....

The Osteopath who rearranged my back yesterday did a good ( if painful ) job,relieved me of £ 60 but made the agony subside to a dull ache....Industrial quantities of Ibuprofen and Voltarol are keeping me going.

I have told you before. You are too old for all that caper.

I have to admit Duncan that I have now reached the same conclusion...70 is probably a bit old to be doing dangerous sports but I do enjoy the experience of speeding over water and reading the waves ahead and just made a slight misjudgement. I have learned my lesson..

When booking up I looked at the ages of the other hirers and they were all less than half my age

Hope you recover soon helicopter. I’m just the wrong side of 60 and had to give up rock climbing in my 30s after a few tumbles and a bone graft on my right wrist which didn’t work. I also had to give up tennis & squash at the same time. I was useless playing left handed !
Much improved after a decade but not risked it again...I still ski very occasionally and avoid landing on my right wrist. And I ruled out learning to snowboard for that reason.

Car rental now booked. Autoreisen online 8-23 Dec @TFS, VW Polo €123. Surprised I didn’t have anything to pay, it’s not my usual full2full fuel policy, and online reviews are encouraging. Free cancellation if the price drops !

Thanks for responses....until this post I’d never heard of Autoreisen as they don’t feature on the list of hire companies on DoYouSpain.
