How expensive is it to travel in Tenerife?

Tourists flock to Tenerife in their millions to soak up the sun and enjoy the island's incredible all-year-round mild climate. Being the largest of Spain's Canary Islands, there truly is something for everyone in Tenerife.

In sunny Tenerife there's Spain's highest volcano, Mount Teide, to explore as well as many beaches with their black and golden sands. But before embarking on any holiday, it's important to consider how much travelling around the destination will cost. So here at Holiday Extras, we've compiled some research to help you out. We're also on hand to provide a reliable transfer service from the airport to your accommodation with our airport transfers.

By bus or tram

Air-conditioned buses are provided by a company called TITSA and they can get you across the whole island very cheaply. Tourists can purchase a Bono card that costs between €12 and €25 depending on how many journeys you make. The card can be used by the entire family and it can be purchased at any bus station. You can also use this card on the tram as long as it has "guagua + tranvía" written on it.

By car or motorbike

For more freedom you could choose to hire a car (and even in busier months, you should never have an issue with parking!). Most big rental companies operate on the island, including: Hertz, Autoreisen and Avis Europcar as well as more local ones. It will cost between €100 and €150 for a seven-day rental and you can also rent motorbikes for around €150 for one week.

By taxi

Taxis in Tenerife are a safe and easy transportation method. The white cars are generally four-seaters, but you can find minivans too. They are reasonably priced and cost around €1.50 per km.

By ferry

Why not take advantage of how close you are to the surrounding Canary Islands and take the ferry over? There are two main ferry companies operating the routes to the western and eastern islands. If you sit on the deck you can enjoy the blue sea and you might even see dolphins! You can travel to La Gomera from Los Cristianos, and the 50-minute journey will set you back between €34 and €40 for one way.
