NO BRAKES ON TOP OF MOUNTAIN and NO BREAKDOWN SERVICE!
Hired a small automatic car from Goldcar at Tenerife Airport. On the first day of use and having reached quite a high altitude the brake wear warning light came as as did the check the brake fluid warning. Not wanting to chance driving back down steep windy roads we called the SOS service and got an ANSWER MACHINE! After leaving 3 messages and no call backs we abandoned the car at midnight and took cab back to hotel. Next day, Goldcar denied we had called their SOS service but eventually they found my recorded messages and didnt seem to care one bit that nobody bothers to answer the 24 hr SOS roadside recovery phone - one staff member even suggested that if you dont take out the extra insurance then they wont provide any emergency assistance. Eventually got a replacement car wasting about a day of our holiday on this.
