Hassle-Free Gran Canaria Car Hire

Renting a car in Gran Canaria is the best way to explore the island and it doesn't need to be a stressful experience if you follow our tips for the perfect Gran Canaria car rental.

One of the most common questions we get asked at Gran Canaria Info is "what is the best way to rent a car in Gran Canaria?".

The answer is always the same: It depends what you are looking for...

The cheapest deal is always too good to be true

If you want the cheapest possible car, it is tempring to go online and choose the lowest price from a car rental website. Howver, be prepared for extra charges once you arrive at the airport. Things like extra insurance that is only obligatory once you go to collect your car, fuel surcharges, deposits blocked on your credit card, or claims for damage to the vehicle or unpaid fines after you get home. The cheapest deals in Gran Canaria are hardly ever as good as they sound, especially on comparison websites.In fact, we get so many complaints about cheap Gran Canaria car rental that ends up being expensive that our advice is to never take the cheapest online deal.

Book local with a reliable company

To avoid the extras that almost invevitably come with the cheapest online car rental offers, go to one of the reliable Gran Canara car rental companies and book a car direct. Autoreisen, Plus Cars and Cicar are the three that offer consistetly good value cars with no hidden extras from Gran Canaria airport. 

You may have to queue to get your car, or even wait for a bit as there is still a shortage of budget cars on Gran Canaria after Covid: The leasing companies sold their fleets and are now having trouble getting new cars to replace them. 

The big box hire companies are expensive in Gran Canaria

Car rental in Gran canaria is really good value but nobody seems to have told the big boys like Hertz and Avis. Their standard offer is often way more expensive than all the other options. If you have a business account, or come at a busy time and there is nothing else available, go for it. But first, contact our trusted car rental partner...

Use Mr Car Hire Gran Canaria for a good deal and peace of mind

There is no way any small local operator can match the cheapest prices on offer online or with the big local companies. However, local companies can compete by offering a quick pickup , fully comprehensive insurance as standard, ongoing support during your holiday, and even pickup and dropoff at you accommodation.

So, if you just want to arrive, grab your keys and go, rather than queueing at a car hire desk, get in touch with Mr Car Hire. If you want a car delivered to your hotel or apartment building, then picked up at the end of the holiday. Get in touch.

This is one of the most common questions we get in our Facebook Group (with over 30,000 members) and fortunately, it is an easy one to answer. The Gran Canaria Info admin team and the fans in our Facebook group agree...

The best car hire companies in Gran Canaria are local ones with desk at the airport and honest pricing policies that don't have any hidden insurance or fuel deposit costs. They just rent you a good car at a good price with no fuss at all. 

We recommend Mr Car Hire Gran Canaria (Nick); an idependent car rental professional who works with all the main local rental companies in Gran Canaria. This means that he can always find you a good deal.

Mr Car Hire also offers fully comprehensive insurance on all car rental, three-day bookings, and delively of your car right to your door anywhere in Gran Canaria. 

We advise all Gran Canaria visitors to avoid booking the cheapest possible car on generic car rental websites or via their flight company because you often end up paying large deposits, extra fuel and insurance costs and all kinds of other costs once you arrive to pick up your car at the airport.
