Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Santa Cruz

Nestling in an archipelago off the west coast of Africa, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and its namesake capital city form part of the sunny Canary Islands archipelago. Blessed with beaches and clear blue waters, Santa Cruz is also an important Atlantic port. This Spanish island was voted as one of the five best places to live in a Guardian newspaper survey carried out in 2012.

Visitors to the island will benefit from the services of five Enterprise branches, making hiring a car simple and straightforward. In addition to our airport branch at Tenerife South, there are four other convenient Enterprise locations. Car hire in Santa Cruz can be arranged in Santa Cruz capital or at Puerto de la Cruz, both of which are well connected to the main TF-5 road. Alternatively, in the south-west of Tenerife, car hire is available at Los Cristianos or Playa de Santiago.

Our Vehicles for Hire in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

At Enterprise, we offer you a wide selection of the latest rental cars in Tenerife to meet your requirements. People carriers are ideal for families or groups looking to organise an excursion to the interior to see volcanic Mount Teide, or for trips along the two coastlines. Alternatively, a choice of economy or compact vehicles makes getting around the capital easier and keeps parking simple. We will also be delighted to help with 4x4s or premium vehicle options.

Attractions in Santa Cruz

In the city of Santa Cruz, brightly painted buildings complement a wide choice of shopping from the sophisticated to the quirky. There are some excellent museums, an impressive auditorium and a fantastic outdoor mixture of green space with fountains and birdsong in Garcia Sanabria public park. Alternatively, near the seafront, Plaza de España leads up to Plaza de la Candelaria and numerous shops selling international brands at tax-free prices.

Every February or March, the Santa Cruz carnival means colourful festivals and costumes, parades and celebrations with singing and dancing. This annual carnival in Tenerife is considered one of the largest in the world, second only to Rio de Janeiro.

Places to Visit Outside Santa Cruz

The island of Santa Cruz is festooned with historical sites and monuments, as well as beautiful sandy beaches and modern shopping centres. One of the best beaches in Tenerife can be found at Playa de Las Teresitas, near the village of San Andres. Here, palm trees line an unspoilt beach with wide golden sands; the lovely bay is protected from most winds by the adjacent Anaga Mountains. These sheltered Atlantic waters are turquoise and calm in summer and a delight for swimming or water sports lovers. Alternatively, keep-fit enthusiasts can choose from beach volleyball and aerobics classes. There again, why not relax for a while in the sunshine?

Other points of interest include the Palmetum botanic gardens and boat excursions along the coast or to other neighbouring islands including Gran Canaria.

Airport Car Hire

The island of Tenerife has two airports, the larger of which is Tenerife South (also known as Reina Sofia airport), situated in the Granadilla area near San Isidro. Most international flights depart from here and you will find our branch conveniently located to collect your rental vehicle. Our staff look forward to welcoming you and for your onwards journey, the airport is well connected to the island’s road network - principally the TF-1 main coastal road.
