Rather than hiring a car from tenerife North Airport you might like to consider booking a private transfer.
This is when a driver meets you in the main arrivals area at a pre-arranged time and takes to a waiting car which will transfer you to your holiday villa or hotel with the minimum of fuss or delay..
When you book the transfer you supply the company with your flight details so that they can track your expected arrival time and make sure they modify their timings if you arrive early or experience any delay.
We always use Shuttle Direct for our own personal private transfers and have no hesitation in recommending them to you.
It is important to consider your journey from Tenerife North Airport to your holiday destination, especially if you have children or travelling in a large groun as normal taxi drivers are only licenced to carry up to a maximum of four passengers (including children) and do not mormally carry child seats or have restraints fitted. By prebooking your own transfer from Los Rodeos Airport you can be sure that you can hire a vehicle that is large enough for your group to travel together and in complete safety.
The only other way of transferring from Tenerife North (apart from the taxis) is by catching the airport bus. This is fine if you are heading into the resorts but not that great if you want to get somewhere off the direct route.
