LUGGAGE

When packing for your trip, consider the good climate the island boasts almost year round. Consequently, you should bring beach clothing and sun protection. Although the weather is almost always nice, bear in mind that temperatures can vary depending on the area you are in, meaning you should also include some warmer clothing in your luggage, such as a light jacket or jumper. Don’t forget your travel documentation either. Take your ID document or Passport with you if you are coming from a country within the European Union.

SAFETY

Tenerife is known as a safe destination, however, we recommend you take some precautionary measures to avoid any incidents. Keep an eye on your belongings in certain places that may have higher volumes of people, such as beaches and restaurants.

CAR HIRE

!There are many vehicle hire companies available to you. These can be found either in the airport or around the island. To hire a vehicle you must carry a document that accredits your ID card or Passport, in addition to a valid driving license, which is essential.

MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

To make use of the Canarian Health Service, you only need to be a resident of the European Union to have the right to free health and hospital care. If you reside in Spain, you only need to show your health card. However, if you don’t have a European Health Insurance Card you must pay for medical care or produce a health insurance policy accepted by the health centre. It is important that you are aware there are medical treatments that are not covered by the European Health Insurance Card.

VAT REFUNDS

With regards to VAT refunds, you will not be able to request a refund as the Canary Islands enjoy prices that are VAT-free because this tax does not apply in this region. However, as this tax is not applied to island products, prices will be much lower than the rest of Europe.
