With Skyscanner you can compare prices and find the cheapest rental prices for your trip.

Where to hire a car in Fuerteventura

You can hire a car in all of Fuerteventura’s major towns and tourist areas. There’s a huge cluster of car rental firms in Morro Jable near the ferry port. Local rental agencies like Cicar and larger brands like Hertz have pick-up and drop-off locations here. You can find more car rental spots in Corralejo in the north, and in the popular resort town Costa Calma on the west coast.
There are also various car hire firms to choose from at the airport, including Cicar, Top Car Autoreisen, Hertz, Avis, and Payless. You should always book your car hire well in advance, especially if you’re visiting during high season (December-March and June-August).

Driving in Fuerteventura

Traffic drives on the right hand side of the road, and the steering wheel of your hire car will be on the left. Pay special attention at roundabouts (you go around them anti-clockwise) and at T-junctions (cross the road when turning left).
Spanish driving laws apply in Fuerteventura, for example if you wear glasses to drive you must carry a spare pair in the dashboard. Another important rule is that you’re not allowed to drive in flip-flops or sandals that don’t have a strap at the back. You may want to bring a spare pair of shoes just for driving.
The roads in Fuerteventura are in very good condition, and are usually quiet. You can drive for long stretches without encountering any other drivers. Still, you need to stick to the speed limit (usually 90kph outside of towns) and be prepared to react to any upcoming hazards.

Parking in Fuerteventura

Parking generally isn’t an issue in Fuerteventura, and you can usually find somewhere to park: even in the most popular beach resorts. Most hotels have a guest car park: in some cases you will need to pay a little extra to use this. Supermarkets and shopping centres often have underground car parking for their customers, and the island’s beaches also tend to have their own car parks.

Great day trips in Fuerteventura

Parque National Jandia

The beaches in Fuerteventura’s south-west peninsula are something else, but if you fancy getting away from the sun and sand you should head up into this gorgeous area of natural beauty. Spot rare birds and beautiful wildflowers, or for views that will really take your breath away, hike up Pico de la Zarza.


This charming town is the oldest in the Canary Islands, and was founded way back in 1404. It’s a great place to visit if you’re interested in seeing some local culture, or absorbing some of the island’s long history. The town was once the capital of the Canaries, was the capital of Fuerteventura, and was even attacked by pirates.
