    Buses to Los Gigantes

    by Bushman23 Written Jan 29, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 2 buses available to get from Los Christianos/Las Americas to the cliffs of Los Gigantes - number 473 & 477. Now the trick is to take the 477, as it's only an hour long, and quite direct... the 473 is 2 hours long, and takes your through almost every village on the way! It's quite a scenic trip, but only if you have the hour to waste.

    Bus travel from north to south of Tenerife

    by ptrim Updated Aug 1, 2010

    If you need to get from the north airport to the south of Tenerife, like I did, the TITSA bus will come in handy.

    I got a bus from the north airport to the south airport very easily. There was a very helpful lady at the tourism stand in the airport who explained all the options to me. I finally got bus 340 straight to the south airport, which took about one hour.

    Here is the timetable: http://www.titsa.com/lineas.asp?idl=340

    The bus starts in Puerto de la Cruz.

    Happy travels!

    Car hire in Tenerife

    by barryg23 Written Jan 10, 2010
    Our hired car in Teide National Park

    Renting a car is a good option in Tenerife, especially if you plan to travel off the beaten path. Though the island has a good bus service, having a car gives you more flexibility and means you can easily get to hard-to-reach locations. It's especially useful if you plan to hike in Teide National Park.

    It's possible to arrange car hire in most of the popular tourist areas though perhaps the best option is to hire from the airport, where these is a large selection of operators. We hired the most basic model from Autoreisen, a company which had great reviews in our guide book and online. It cost us 300 Euro for 8 days, though this was over the Christmas & New Year period, a time when prices rise all over the island. I would expect you could find much better deals at other times of year.

    I was quite impressed by Autoreisen, despite the fact our first car had to be returned after 3 days, when it developed persistent problems starting up. After calling them from Vilaflor they gave us the option of driving down to the airport to pick up a new car or waiting in Vilaflor for another to be delivered. When we got down our new car was ready and we only lost about an hour or two of our time altogether. All in all, Autoreisen are a good company and I would recommend them to anyone starting from Tenerife South airport.

    I choose,a cheap fligth from Madrid to Tenerife south,the low cost Clickair.
    From Airport to Adeje,we rent a car for seven days,the price is very good,from Cigar.
    You return the car one day earlier,and you receive the money back for last day.

    The efficient, very green, public 'wah-wah' system

    muchas paradas y guaguas

    Don't bother looking for a train on Tenerife, there aren't any! But the next best thing is the island's very modern, comfortable, fast and punctual TITSA bus service. You can pick up a bus route (linea) map and timetable at bus stations (or online). Bus stops are denoted by a large letter P, for Parada. If you have large luggage, open the hinged panel on the side of the bus and load your bag yourself. You can pay for your fare using cash and the drivers can give change.

    You can get a very substantial reduction on the standard bus fare by pre-purchasing a Bono Bus card from a bus station or participating shop/agent. Bono Bus cards cost either 12 or 30 euros (2009). When you boadr the bus you insert your card in a machine, state your destination and the bus driver deducts the fare from your card. The price of the journey gets printed on the back of the card. Generally I found the reduction was 50% with a Bono Bus card!

    When you arrive at Tenerife Sur airport the Bono Bus cards are only available from the furthest gift shop at the 'Departures' end of the terminal (which doesn't make all that much sense!). The shop seemed to close around 8pm'ish.

    Interestingly, if you have only a few cents credit left on your card you will still benefit from the full fare reduction, but will need to pay the balance using cash. Worth knowing!

    Oh, and "wah-wah", that is what the Tenerifian's commonly call a bus (spelt guagua), perfectly acceptable in the Canaries, so go with it ;o)

    Tenerife has an excellent public transport system. You can get to most places by bus. If you buy the Bono card (which is valid on the tram in Santa Cruz aswell) for 12 or 30€ you can save up to 50% on your fare.
    The buses on Tenerife are called guaguas and usually are green.

    The Teide by cablecar

    by bijo69 Written Feb 4, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In case you're too lazy (like me) to walk up the Teide, you can take the cablecar up to at least 3555m.
    The return trip costs you a steep 24€ though and usually you can expect long queues. But it's definitely worth going up if there weather is fine, the view from up there is awesome.
    The cablecar operates from 9.00h to 18.00h.

    I flew into the airport Tenerife Norte "Los Rodeos" which is the smaller of Tenerife's two airports. Mainly flights domestic, escpecially inter-canarian flights depart from here.
    Don't expect to do a lot of interesting duty-free shopping here, the choices are limited.

    Bus 102, 340 from Puerto de la Cruz
    Bus 102, 107, 108 from Santa Cruz

    Getting to/from South Airport

    by denise16 Written Feb 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are lucky and your flight coincides with teh bus to Los Cristianos/Playa Amercias then getting the bus is cheap and easy. It's a number 487 and costs 1.80 euros to Cristiano's, takes about 20 minutes. Caught from outside arrivals, cross teh road. But it is only hourly. Taxis cost about 20euros and are very quick.
    The bus from Cristianos to the airport leaves the bus station approx. 30minutes past teh hour. There is a timetable on the TITSA website, times given are from the departure point and not individual stops. You can also buy travel cards that give good discounts if travelling by bus around the island. One card can be used by more than one person until the amount as been used. One disappointment was that there is only one bus to and from the volcano cablecar station each day, so unless you want all day there then an organised tour or hire car is better.

    Rent a Car

    by Kajser-MK Updated Jul 30, 2007

    Since coming to Tenerife and enjoying in the holidays doesn't mean going only to the beach/pool, we decided to rent a car.
    We found the desk of local company(Autos 3.000) in our hotel and not wanting to search around for other company, we rented a 2005 VW polo.
    The lady who worked there was very friendly and spoke not so good english (She was Belgian Frankfone married in Tenerife) ...... but managed to explain everything about what to see on the island.
    The hire of this car was not cheap - we payed 37 EUR per day for 4 day renting , but insurance was included as well as kid's seat in the car. Most important thing : we have a parking spot at the hotel's garage (Gala Hotel), which sometimes is a hard thing to find in Playa de las Americas.
    I suggest when renting a car here, one to be sure that there will be a parking spot for the car.

    And be careful when driving , the locals are driving like crazy......
    Only in Istanbul I have witnessed worse driving.....

    Tenerife also has a quite good bus connections. It will take your longer, but it is still possible to reach almost any point of the Island with bus. The company has name Titsa and it's official website is http://www.titsa.com/

    Map of Tenerife with all bus connections:

    If you are going to ride a bus for more then just one or two times, it worth to buy a Bono-ticket, which will help to save you up to 50%.

    Around Tenerife by car

    by LNata Updated Jul 29, 2007

    The best way to discover Tenerife is to go around using a rented car. There are a lot of companies which are to your service. The longer a time you are renting a care, the cheaper its price for one day. It is also cheaper to book a car via internet in prior.

    For example, we have booked our car in http://www.top-car-hire.com/ and the deal was really fair.

    Tenerife Sur Airport

    by Kajser-MK Written Jul 26, 2007

    The best way to come to Tenerife is by air. We've come here after booking a package from the German Travel agency TUI and the flight was operated by charter company LTU. from Munich . The flight usualy is 4 hours ad 30 minutes .
    The company's bus was waiting for us at the airport ,so there was no any problems regarding the transport from Tenerife Sur Airport to and from the Hotel.
