Car Hire Tips in Fuerteventura

  • The most obvious and easiest place to rent a car in Fuerteventura is at Fuerteventura Airport, near the capital city of Puerto del Rosario.
  • The car hire desks can be found in the main room of the arrivals terminal, here you will find companies such as Hertz, Europcar, Goldcar and Avis.
  • If you are wanting to save a bit of money you could choose to rent a car for day trips rather than the full duration of your holiday with car rental firms available in all leading resorts.
  • However, in order to get the best deals it is often better to book online in advance as you will be able to easily compare and find the cheapest rates.
  • Some conditions to be aware of when driving in Fuerteventura include: The drink and driving legal limit is lower than the UK, so if you are going out for drinks it is best to use public transport or taxis. Any children aged 12 and under cannot sit in the front seat unless they are at least 4’9’’. There are more goats than people on the island, so it's always best to be extra cautious when driving in remote locations.
  • As well as tarmac paved roads there are many unmade ‘tracks’ often granting you access to the beaches, but be careful as some hire companies do get you to sign an agreement stating you will not use these tracks.
  • What is great about driving in Fuerteventura is that you will barely experience traffic jams, however it is always best to leave slightly earlier when travelling to the airport just in case!
