    Check the reviews for Auto Reisen.

    If you are hiring from the airport do a comparison with www.carrentals.co.uk if going direct with Avis Budget Hertz Sixt or National and the rates are competitive just go direct.

    AutoReisen are very good, no nonsense over fuel, insurance excess cover, etc.

    I've never had trouble with Auto Reisen. Book now, but also check again three or four weeks before you go - their prices can drop nearer the time, and they don't charge anything to cancel and rebook at the lower price.

    Whoever you book with, book direct.

    Cabrera Medina are excellent. Great choice of cars and customer service is very good. Plus you can manage your booking online. Book online, pay on pickup either at the airport, resort office or at your accommodation,.

    Avoid Goldcar and Orlando, and you're better staying clear of the multi nationals.

    AutoReisen for me too, used them several times across the canaries.
    The questions that get the best answers are the questions that give most detail....

    Do NOT book GOLDCAR
    Originally posted by London50
    I have used Auto Reisen umpteen times over recent years - they have always been priced fairly, with no probs regarding fuel or additional cover for insurance etc. However on my last rental from them (lasting 1 month) the vehicle was hardly fit for the road, every panel had a dent or scratch, two front tyres were legal but only just - bit of a nail really. have booked again with them for early next year but will not accept another vehicle in a similar condition.

    As for Goldcar, I was aware of the awful reviews for this company - on a recent trip to Portugal (via Ryanair) I booked car rental thru the airline not realising I may end up with Goldcar, indeed the quote from Ryanair had selected a hire company which was not Goldcar.

    When I actually received confirmation the booking was thru Goldcar - I already have a stand alone car hire excess waiver insurance so had a little peace of mind with that.

    The Goldcar experience was 100% brilliant, virtually brand new car (just400 kms from new) and no probs whatsoever when returning the vehicle. Maybe I just got lucky
