Richard Klarenberg Hertz Gran Canaria Airport
“All over experiences.”

“Booking is easy. Offers are complete. Searching is good. Conditions are good especialy in regards to possible cancellings free of charge. Only negative are the so many different rules per hiring company. F.i. On Gran Canaria, we had to reserve EURO 750,-. from our credit card at Hetz, though we booked at EasyTerra "no risks, all inclusive". This amount was immediately blocked on our account sothat we could not have our full credit card credit to our disposal. This ment that if we should have any doubtful damage, they would charge us, and we would settle this afterwards with Easy Terra. Is this right?”

“I always use EasyTerra when renting a car abroad.”

“Everything is always handled smoothly. Even when I once had to cancel a car that I had already booked. I especially like that you can buy deductible-free coverage, which is much more cost-effective than doing so directly with the rental company.”

“Peculiar”

“Nobody to walk around the car with you before you leave. The same when you return the car. You pay a full tank upfront and you leave it with fuel in. So don't fill up as this is uneconomical unless you want to sit in the car every day.”

Location information for Gran Canaria

Introduction

Gran Canaria is the largest and most popular of the seven Canary Islands. Gran Canaria is a rocky and forested island, with at its center a symmetrical volcano that is well worth a visit. The capital and port on this beautiful island is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This beautiful colonial city is the administrative center of the easterly islands: Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

Population

Gran Canaria has about 789,000 inhabitants. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital, has about 378,000 inhabitants. The first impression is that the island has a lot more inhabitants, because some 3 million tourists every year come to enjoy everything is has to offer.

Location

Gran Canaria is one of seven Canary Islands: Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma and Hierro. The Canary Islands are located to the south-west of Morocco (on the African continent). The distance between the islands and Morocco varies between 100 and 550 kilometers. Gran Canaria is the second closest to the mainland, at about 200 kilometers. The islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean.

Economy

Agriculture is very important to the island's economy. The north side of the island is much greener than the south side. On the north side e island there are many banana plantations. There are also fertile valleys where papayas, mangos and citrus fruit are grown. The trade of (among other things) the island's produce is also important to Gran Canaria. Because of this trade, fishery and tourism, Gran Canaria has a large and modern harbor, which provides many jobs on the island. Finally, tourism is very important to the island's economy. Tourists are drawn by the rugged landscape, the green south, the dry north, the beautiful beaches, the colonial Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the tourist attractions and the gastronomy.

Airports

Gran Canaria has one airport: Gran Canaria Airport, which is located 18 kilometers to the south of the capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This island is the only island (for tourists) on the easterly islands. Both domestic and international flights are processed by this airport.

Most visitors arrive on Gran Canaria by airplane. There is also a possibility of arriving from Cadiz, located on the south-western coast of Spain. Between the islands themselves there are also a number of ferry services. There are frequent bus services between the airport and, among other places, the capital, this is bus number 60. The bus is the only form of public transport on the island. It allows you to reach many towns, villages and holiday resorts on the island. This means that you do not need a rental car to be mobile. Needless to say, the bus is a less comfortable way of travelling.

Traffic and Parking

A rental car is a perfect way of discovering the island. It allows you to leave the beaten path. Usually, the roads on the island are good. The less frequented roads are also less good, which, combined with the steep peaks and valleys, makes a four-wheel drive more than a luxury. Parking is only problematic on certain popular locations.

Gran Canaria has many hotels. You can choose between very cheap to very luxurious hotels. During the tourist season, it is advisable to book your hotel room in advance, if you do not want to run the risk of not finding what you like.
