They should be accepted without any problem but be very very careful about the extra charges that your credit card company may add to transactions abroad - worth checking with them first.

Hi, all credit and debit cards are accepted. But you will need a form of photo IT as well. I use my Driving Licence. Also all the major UK banks have branches or representative banks in Tenerife.

Credit cards are excepted in most places. However watch out that if you want to pay in €'s you state clearly that is what you want to do. Many transactions have a step where you are asked if you want to pay in €'s or £'s. The exchange rate is not necessarily to your benefit.

However during February I used c/c's in 30 different places (who's counting, well yes I am) and 3 of them pretended to be deaf and proceeded on with the currency that I did not want. Suddenly the waiter who spoke perfect English could not pronounce or understand a word.

This has not happenednot me on mainland Spain but the Cannaries is more Africa than Europe.

So be careful.
