Gran Canaria car hire is relatively simple, as you will not require an international driver’s permit if you have a UK licence; it should be valid and over a year old. You will need to present your passport as photographic identification and have an international credit card with enough funds for the transaction as well as the insurance, which your car hire location in Gran Canaria can assist you with. Visa and Mastercard are always accepted and will be the wise choice for your transaction.
You will drive your cheap car hire in Gran Canaria on the right-hand side of the road. Many coastal roads have other interesting rules such as no driving without a shirt or barefoot. All passengers will need to wear seatbelts, and children under 12 cannot sit in the front seat. Stick to the speed limit of 120 km/h (70 mph) on motorways, 90 km/h (55 mph) on national roads and 30 km/h (20 mph) on urban roads. An 0.08% blood alcohol content limit should always be observed. Do not play loud music from your car or honk in suburban areas unless it is an emergency. Check with the local motor vehicle authority in case any rules have changed.
Hired cars in Gran Canaria will offer an opportunity to enjoy this idyllic setting with independence and autonomy. The landscape has been compared to Scotland with winding roads and hilly regions that offer well-maintained road surfaces and safety barriers. You will be able to hire an economy or passenger car and move around the island with complete ease. A convertible sports car will also offer an edge of luxury and freedom to your car hire in Gran Canaria, allowing you to feel the wind in your hair along the coastal roads.
