It’s now August 2021 and we usually see an influx of visitors to Gran Canaria and most people visiting the resorts to the South, like Maspalomas, Peurto Rico, and Playa del Ingles usually need to hire a car or book an airport transfer to get them to their holiday destination. So today we want to look at the car hire prices and best value for money for car hire at LPA Gran Canaria airport. We will discuss the best way to get the cheapest price, but what is offered by the various car hire companies for their quoted price.
To save time with searching through the hundreds of hire companies, it makes real sense to use a reliable car hire comparison website. These websites crawl through all the hire companies that have a deal for the dates you require. They then list the cars and companies from cheapest to the more expensive. It is best to also use the filters to narrow your search down to the overall cost and payment methods, ease of booking, possible cancellation policy, and fuel policy.
When you arrive at Gran Canaria Airport you’ll collect your luggage and make your way to the car hire rental section of the airport. Although this can be convenient you usually will see queues of people at each desk collecting their car hire. Believe me, this is not the time to try to get the best price by asking each person at the various desks. It is far better to pre-book your car hire online from the comfort of your home and analyse the best price and lock that price in, then you know you have the best price but also know which desk to visit. Sometimes you can get an even cheaper price when you pre-book you car hire with a company off-site from the airport. In this case, the car hire representative will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall to take you to their depot, usually a 5-minute ride away.
So why do we recommend pre-booking:
There are many comparisons websites around. It’s good to always remember these car hire comparison websites only direct you to car hire agents. When you book a car you are dealing with that car hire company offering the best price or deal. Comparing the price at home means you are saving time later.
The car hire search feature on this website is an excellent way to pre-book your hire car at Gran Canaria airport. (Top Right of this page)
When you have found your car hire and are happy with the price and what is offered, you can pay a deposit to secure the price or pay the full amount. Usually, if you pay the full price at the time of booking you get a better deal. Either way, you’ll be given a voucher with all the information needed to collect your car with the price locked in and guaranteed. There is also the option to avail of free cancellation should your plans change.
Using a comparison website and pre-booking your car is a no-brainer! If you’re planning a trip to Gran Canaria then check out the car hire prices. It will provide you the luxury of having the best car for the best price!
