    A trip around Garachico with our friends.
    4 more images

    If you want to save your legs then this is a nice way of seeing some of the sights of Garachico.The start point is by Libertad Square and the ride takes you through some of the old parts of this beautiful town.
    The ride lasts about 20 minutes and cost us 15 euros for the four of us.

    Catch the Tram.

    Trams waiting at La Laguna
    3 more images

    An easy and relaxing way to travel between Santa Cruz and La Laguna is by tram.The journey time between Santa Cruz and La Laguna is about 37 minutes,with 19 stops on the way.Tickets are purchased at the machine on the station and once on the tram your ticket must be validated in the machine by the doors.Trams run every 5 -10 minutes and cost of a single ticket is 1.35 euros or 6 euros for 5 trips.
    If you are in Santa Cruz the trip up to the old part of La Laguna is well worth while, and only a few minutes walk from the tram stop.

    Cable car to Mount Teide

    On the way up.
    4 more images

    To visit the summit of Mount Teide gives you a spectacular view of the National Park and coastline way below.Choose a good clear day for your visit as cloud cover over the top can spoil the occasion.Make sure you go prepared with sensible walking shoes,as the terrain is very uneven and ice and snow can be a problem.Remember that although the weather might be warm and fine lower down at the top the temperature drops dramatically.
    The cable car takes about 12 minutes to reach the top and from here a network of marked paths allow you to explore.Be aware that for route 10,which gives you access to the summit you will require a special permit which is available online.

  • Shuttle Spain Tenerife

    by birthe1 Written Apr 14, 2013

    I booked airport transfer with www.shuttletenerife.com
    On arrival it took a long time to get the driver and when we had to go to the airport on our return they did not turn up on the time as agreed.
    They were about half an hour late. This is not acceptable and I would not recommend them.

    The more convenient way to explore Tenerife Island is to rent a car. We did some research and found the most accurate coverage and condition at the cheapest price with Top Car.
    They provide cars from both the island's airport.
    Their rental condition provide comprehensive insurance without deductible, second driver free of charge and unlimited mileage.
    We were given a White Ford Fiesta for the price of 121 Euros for 7 days in January 2012.
    The car was not brand new but still in very good conditions and clean. It took us all over the places included the Teide volcano.
    Their desk inside airport and the cars are parked in the lot in front of the arrival exit.

    Tenerife bus system

    by oriettaIT Updated Jun 15, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had a car so we did not used the bus but they would make it really easy to travel around Tenerife as the service is extensive and reach every village and main attraction.
    Their site is very accurate and give information about timetables, routes, fares with every detail possible.

    Wrong bus times Google Maps

    by chrisdScotland Written Mar 27, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tenerife bus timetables changed in November 2011. Google maps are still working on the old one, it would appear, as they don't correspond with up-to-date timetables there. (even though, on their site, clicking on bus stops appear to give actual scheduled running time) The hotels too are handing out old info so double check before setting out.
    To mix things up farther - BIG TIP - the official bus 'Titsa.com' site appears to give correct scheduled running times yet an hour ahead (i.e. Spanish time) not at the GMT that Tenerife use.
    Just hope they have new timetables printed when you arrive. We were not that lucky.
    I am trying to contact both sites so this might change soon. If you know that it has contact me to remove this please.

    Car Rental South Airport

    by painterdave Written Feb 9, 2012
    the white one....

    We used the rental service of Auto Reisen after shopping on the internet for a small car with full insurance.
    When we arrived at the airport we got a nice, clean car which had no problems.
    The price was as quoted and we were pleased with everything.
    Driving the island is fairly easy and there are few big trucks.

    Airport Tenerife South
    1 more image

    Tenerife is well served by its airports with routes from and to the other Canary Islands, Europe and beyond. There are two airports on the island of Tenerife, one on the north side (Tenerife Norte, TFN) and the other one on the south of the island (Tenerife Sur, TFS). Both airports are at about 2.5 hours flying time from Madrid, and about 3 hours from Barcelona.
    Most domestic flights go to Tenerife Norte. Most international and charter flights go to Tenerife Sur. Most people travelling on scheduled flights will have to fly via Madrid or Barcelona. Three airlines fly scheduled flights in from the Spanish mainland: Iberia, Air Europa and Spanair. The strong competition between them has substantially lowered the airfares to the Canaries in the past years. Please book your flights early. Scheduled flights from Madrid and Barcelona to Tenerife as well as charter flights from some European countries can be heavily booked at certain times of the year.

    TITSA Bus, Tenerife

    Bus services on Tenerife are operated by TITSA (Transportes Interurbanos de Tenerife SA) and as with most places that we visit, the service that they run is way ahead of what we get here in England and way cheaper too.
    They are easily recognised by their green livery and run quite a regular service between the main population & tourist centres. The fully comprehensive timetable is an invaluable tool and its a real advantage to be able to have it before you arrive at the island, so that you can plan your days out. You can download the timetable from here, along with a route map and other useful stuff.
    You can buy a ticket called a BonoBus ticket from the bus stations and some shops (these shops are hard to find and its advisable to get one from the bus station if you can) but they are not sold on the busses.
    The tickets cost 12 Euro and they get you a price reduction on journeys you make; the longer the journey the greater the reduction. The cost of the journey is deducted from your ticket, so it not only gets you a discount it also counts as a pre-payed ticket. You can use the same ticket for any number of people too, simply put it in the machine in the bus again and again and again, the cost of each trip being deducted until the ticket is empty.
    If you make a journey that costs more than the amount you have left on your ticket, you pay the remainder in cash, but you still get it at the discounted price.
    Example prices with a BonoBus are Las Americas to Santa Cruz, 2.7 Euro.
    Busses run fairly frequently, especially between the more popular destinations, but they often take longer than advertised to a greater or lesser degree. Las Americas to Los Gigantes took us 100 minutes, twice as long as stated.
    See my warnings & dangers about getting the 111 bus to destinations towards Santa Cruz!

    seeing the island by coach

    La Gomera

    There are lots of tour companies selling trips around the island, at reasonable prices(can't remember how much as it was 5 years ago). I think we went with Union Jack Travel. Advantages - you don't have to worry about the traffic or hairpin bends, you can drink alcohol with your lunch and meet other people.
    Disadvantages-sometimes you are taken to a tourist souvenir shop.

    Watch out for the 'free' tours:we never went on one because we knew we wouldn't have had much time to ourselves due to film shows etc.

    Trip to La Gomera was brilliant, and I was glad I wasn't driving on those high windy mountain roads.

    TITSA in the Teide National Park

    Yes, TITSA is the name of the bus company on Tenerife, not a typo. It stands for Transportes Interurbanos de Tenerife S.A.

    Anyhow, these buses seem to go all the way around the island and almost antwhere you would want to go.

    I took the picture of this bus in the Teide National Park (home of the huge volcano), and there were plenty of these buses going backwards and forwards despite the very high altitude and steep mountain roads.

    For more information, look at the attcahed website below.

    look out for the big green bus !

    Its unfortunate that the busses in a popular British holiday spot are called `Titsa`, I can just imagine the comments some of my countrymen will make !

    the busses are modern and clean and operate regular services all over the island

    Iberia A340 waiting to take us to Madrid

    Tenerife has two Airports, Teneriffa Norte, Los Rodeos Airport and Teneriffa Sur, Reina Sofia Airport.

    The busiest one is the south Airport. Most of the flights are Charter flights. It is not easy finding good priced scheduled flights, but there is a wide range of charter flights from all over europe.

    We used Iberia (spanish national carrier) and had to change plane in Madrid (scheduled flight). We arrived at the north Airport and departed from the south Airport.

    If you book a package holiday (as most tourists on Tenerife) you will probably fly to the south airport and then get collected at the airport.
    If you are travelling individualy here some infos:
    From both airports there are regular bus services (very reliable!) in most directons (www.titsa.com). Taxis are available too and are cheap and reliable.
    There is a wide range of car rental firms at the airports offering their services. Its normaly cheaper to book a car before you arrive. From both airports you get on the motorway and to your destination.

    Car Hire

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are plenty of car-rental firms on Tenerife, so doing some window shopping before you buy could save you quite a few bucks. We hired a car through our Thomas Cook rep, who deal with AVIS. We were charged 49 Euros for the day, - and then spent another 15 Euros on petrol driving from the South to the North, and back again. Very economical :)
    Some adverts we saw for car rental showed prices as low as 32 Euros a day, though they weren't any company that we knew.
