Car Hire Las Palmas, Gran Canaria Guide

Located on the northeastern coast of Gran Canaria, Las Palmas is the capital that seamlessly blends urban sophistication with beach vibes. Its historic districts, bustling shopping streets, vibrant cultural scene, and sun-kissed beaches make it a destination with something for every traveler. And there's no better way to experience the city's myriad attractions than by hiring a car with Rhinocarhire.

Benefits of Hiring a Car in Las Palmas:

  1. Freedom and Flexibility: Navigate the city and surrounding areas at your own pace. Whether you want to take a spontaneous detour to a coastal viewpoint or linger longer at a historic site, a car gives you that liberty.

  2. Accessibility: While Las Palmas boasts an efficient public transport system, some hidden gems might be off the beaten path and easier to access with a car.

  3. Comfort and Security: Especially beneficial for families or groups, having a car ensures a comfortable journey with all your belongings safely stored.

Navigating Las Palmas by Car:

  • Nearest Airport: Las Palmas Airport (LPA) serves as the primary gateway to the city. The drive to the city center is straightforward and takes about 25 minutes via the GC-1 motorway.

  • Tolls: There are no toll roads on Gran Canaria, making drives cost-effective.

  • Road Conditions: The roads, especially the main highways like GC-1, are in excellent condition. However, some mountain roads can be narrow and winding.

  • Traffic: As with any major city, traffic can be dense during rush hours. It's advisable to avoid driving in the city center between 8-10 AM and 5-7 PM on weekdays.

Recommended Attractions & Routes:

  1. Playa de Las Canteras: Just a 10-minute drive from the heart of the city, this beach is renowned for its golden sands and calm waters.

  2. Vegueta: The historic district is a mere 10-15 minute drive from most parts of the city. Wander through cobbled streets, visit the Catedral de Santa Ana, and immerse yourself in history at the Casa de Colón.

  3. Caldera de Bandama: A 20-minute drive on GC-3 from the city will bring you to this volcanic crater offering panoramic views of the island.

  4. Jardín Botánico Viera y Clavijo: Located about 15 minutes from the city via GC-3, this botanical garden showcases the rich flora of the Canary Islands.

Type of Car to Hire:

  • For city excursions and short trips, a compact car or sedan will suffice.
  • If planning mountain drives or needing more space, consider an SUV.

Hiring a car in Las Palmas not only offers convenience but also opens up a world of exploration possibilities. With the freedom to dictate your itinerary, you can ensure a unique and memorable experience of the city and its surroundings. Make sure to book in advance to avail the best deals and a wide selection of vehicles.
