Car Hire Help


we are going to Tenerife, Golf Del Sur in August 2013 and was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent company to use for renting a car.

not looking for anything fancy, just something to get us from A to B.

When I have rented cars in the past I have tended to go with the option of getting a car with a full tank of petrol and then returning empty

any help/links would be greatly appreciated

Simple answer is Autoreisen www.arcarhire.com/car-hire/car-hire.php

Pick up and drop off at the airport means no transfers or taxi costs.

The price you see it what you pay - no compulsory add-ons .

Simply leave the fuel tank at the level it was when you get it.

Honestly - don't waste time looking elsewhere. Autoreisen provide a good value for money service , with a good range of cars.

Yes, totally agree. Have used them for the past four years (and again this July) and can highly recommend.

Do you know if the insurance covers fully comprehensive? I can only see third party on the terms and conditions.

There is a problem with Autoreisen. They advertise “Free cancellation or modification of the reservation”. This is NOT true.

I reserved a car off TFS and was confirmed at €169. When I had to change the airport to TFN (travel dates staying the same) I had to make a new reservation at €220.

So no “Free modification of the reservation” but €50 extra to pay.

You 'made a NEW reservation' , you did not modify the reservation?You ARE perfectly entitled to cancel this new reservation for free and rebook at a lower prevailing rate should one arise closer to your holiday date - that IS what many people do.

autoplus car are one of the simplest and cost effective car hire companies in the canaries, book in advance from the airport only.

return how you find with fully comp insurance, just the key and the tyre's not included.

cicar are similar but more expensive

we have always used autoreisen never a problem sometimes you get a new car sometime an older one, web site easy to use , and have cancelled a booking at no extra cost then re-booked when the cars are sometimes cheaper on an offer no hidden extra's you get 1/4 or 1/2 a tank of fuel and return with same amount, their office as you come through to get your luggage , normally i get luggage the wife sorts car out and we are done about the same time no messing about ,and staight out the airport ,we find they are always the cheapest.
