Insurance - Be sure you have adequate and suitable insurance to cover yourself and your family.

Child Seats - Book these in advance if you need them, there will normally be an extra charge for these.

Air-conditioning - When booking from the UK you may not feel that this is necessary but if you are visiting Tenerife during the hot summer months the weather can get oppressive and it is an essential addition to your car hire requirements, so make sure the car has air-conditioning.

Excess Payments - Make sure you know the excess payment that you will be liable for if you have an accident - these can vary considerably.

Damage - Be certain to inspect the car for damage before you drive off and point out any damage to the car hire representative, you don’t want to be charged for damage that you didn’t cause and some Tenerife car hire companies are very strict and will charge you for the slightest scratch.
