    How to get to and from Tenerife North Airport

    Exploring North Tenerife and the rest of the island is easy when you rent a car at Tenerife North Airport. Reaching the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, can be done in a mere 15 minutes by taking the TF-5 for 2.5km before taking the Av. Tres de Mayo. You can find additional information regarding driving in Spain in our informative guide.

    The airport has two public transport options – bus and taxi. Taxies can be found outside the Arrivals Hall on Level Zero. There are four bus routes that you can take from the airport, Route 20 runs between the airport, Santa Cruz and La Laguna; Route 30 links the airport to Puerto de la Cruz; Route 104 goes to Santa Cruz, Taroconte, Puerto de la Cruz and La Laguna; and Route 343 will take you directly to La Laguna and Tenerife South Airport non-stop in just 50 minutes. The bus-stops are located on Level -1 at the bus terminal.

    Parking Tips

    The airport has four parking facilities available but only two are open to the public. The general car park is on Level -1 and is the closest to the terminal building offering outdoor parking with covered spaces. The Long-stay car park is located 5-10 minutes from the terminal and is ideal for extended periods. You can book spaces in both car parks on the airport’s webpage at a discounted rate. If you are returning your car hire at Tenerife North Airport, you must return it at the designated parking area reserved for rental cars.

    It can be quite difficult to find street parking during the peak summer months in the main parts of Tenerife. It is recommended that drivers look for parking in backstreets, car parks or travel during the non-peak hours. Some hotels offer their guests parking, so you are advised to check with them when booking your accommodation.
