Help I can't find a car to hire in Tenerife, in 2 weeks!

I've completely forgotten to book and now I can't find anything at all to pick from the south airport, arrival between Christmas and New Year for week. I'm going to the north with two kids so I really need one. I've tried all the online brokers and individual multinationals like Avis, Hertz and they've all said There is Nothing. Does anyone know of any smaller local ones I could try? Surely these places have cancellations from time to time, how can I tap into them? I would be so grateful for suggestions!

I believe Tenerife Sunshine have car rental companies on their books ,the link below has Live Chat during office hours so you could ask to see if they can help .The Staff are excellent so maybe they know of a local firm too if the big nationals are full ,,,,

www.tenerifesunshine.com

I do think though the smaller companies wont have a site at the airport ,so they may come and pick you up OR you may have to taxi/bus to their local office . IF you get really stuck i notice a small hire company on the road coming up from the sea front at Palm Beach Club hotel ( AVDA V Cantenario ) right up to the second junction under a pool hall ( just never noted its name but it may jolt others memories butts up to the side of Parasio del sol apts )

>>> Hope our links are ok today 18000 <<

Thank you all for your messages... I have already tried all of them and they are all fully booked out. I called Hertz and Avis at the airport but they were totally uninterested in the concept of a waiting list. I'll try Tenerife Sunshine.

Quick update to onelegnofeet - I just chatted to Tenerife Sunshine and incredibly they have come up with a car! This is after a soul-destroying chunk of time websurfing and phonecalling... I must have tried at least 20 companies. I am soooo grateful for your recommendation, thank you so much.
