If you do not want to hire a car which you can pick up when you arrive at the airport to get you to your final destination, then another option is to book 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.
We always use Shuttle Direct for our own personal private transfers and have no hesitation in recommending them to you.
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.
When it's time for you to leave again your driver will turn up at the pre-arranged time and place to take you back to the airport
It is important to consider your journey from Tenerife Airport to your holiday destination if you are travelling in a group of more than four people as taxi drivers can only carry up to a maximum of four passengers (including children) and by law are not obliged to carry baby seats or have child restraints fitted to their vehicle. By pre booking your own transfer you can be sure that your group will travel together and in complete safety.
The only other way of transferring (apart from the taxis) is by catching the airport bus. This is fine if you are heading into the City Centre but not that great if you are going anywhere slightly off the beaten track.
Of course you could just use the normal Tenerife Airport taxis whose rank is just outside the arrivals hall but hiring a car or organising a private transfer from Tenerife often work out cheaper than the cost of a taxi.
