NATIONAL Car Rental Services at Gran Canaria Airport

Gran Canaria Airport serves one of the larger of Spain's Canary Islands, and is also commonly referred to as the Las Palmas Airport, or as the Gando Airport, due to its location in the Bay of Gando. Just 18 km from the capital city of the island, and 25 km from famous southern beach resorts, Gran Canaria Airport provides a major gateway for local and international tourists, and handles over nine million passengers per annum. These passenger traffic figures rank the airport as the largest of all the airports on the Canary Islands, and the fifth largest airport in Spain. There are many facilities for passengers available, including several well known Gran Canaria Airport car hire companies, such as National. National Car Hire is one of the world leaders in car rental services, and offer a wide variety of vehicles for hire.

There is just one terminal building at Gran Canaria Airport, which handles all arrivals and departures, but it is divided into three zones. One zone for international arrivals and departures, another for all flights from the European Union and a third zone for inter-island traffic. The car hire companies are located in the passage that connects the international arrival zone and the EU flight area, and are on the ground floor of the building, as all arriving passengers will enter on the ground floor. This area can easily be reached on foot from the baggage reclaim areas, as well as from the main arrivals lobby, and the rented cars of National are parked on the lower floor of the car parking lot. Therefore, there is no need for further transport in order to arrange or collect your rented car from Gran Canaria Airport.

Passengers driving a rented car will also find that the airport is most conveniently situated along the eastern coastline of the island, with a direct link to the GC-1 motorway, the largest road on the island which runs from the southern areas to the capital city of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, and right past the airport. The road networks in and around the towns of Gran Canaria are well organised, and by car, its possible to thoroughly explore this beautiful island. Since that Gran Canaria Airport is such a busy establishment, passengers are recommended to reserve their vehicles in advance, from National’s website at This website displays all the details regarding National’s car categories, and the rental terms and conditions which need to be followed.

It is also recommended to hire additional items of equipment for your Gran Canaria Airport car rental in advance, such as baby seats, luggage racks or a satellite navigation system. Hand controls for disabled drivers will need to be booked early as well, at least 48 hours before your arrival. This device is used by drivers with a lower limb deficiency, and may come with a steering wheel knob for extra assistance. At Gran Canaria Airport, hand controls may be used free of charge. Even if the disabled person cannot drive a vehicle, he/she may still be the primary renter at National, with a designated driver. The additional driver will show his/her driving license to validate the rental, and the credit card of the disabled person will be used for payment.

Vehicles from National are all divided into various car categories, and are booked and priced accordingly. Customers will therefore choose a category, such as Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Standard or Premium, and not cars by its specific make and model. However, if a person does require a certain model of car, National will do their best to accommodate for the needs of the customer. The largest vehicle offered for hire by National is the Opel Vivaro, with room for nine passengers, and this van is ideal for groups of travelers. Seven passengers can also be seated in the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso 1.8. The smaller cars from National can be found in the Mini and Economy car groups, for example, the Fiat Seicento 1.1 and Citroen C2 1.1. Although the majority of National's vehicles in Spain come with manual transmissions, the Citroen C4 1.6 is automatic, and is also found in the compact category.

Intermediate Wagons are automatic, similar to the Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6, as well as Standard vehicles, such as the Citroen C5 2.0. National’s large variety of vehicles at Gran Canaria Airport may also be arranged as a one way hire, which is a most convenient option for those who will not be driving back to the airport. A couple of National locations are available on the island, and drivers are often allowed to return the vehicle to any one of these locations. A one way hire may or may not come with additional charges, depending on the length of the rental and the final destination of the hired car. Customers will need to confirm if National’s cars are allowed to be taken on ferries to the other Canary Islands.

In Spain, all foreign drivers will be required to have an International Driving Permit, and National may require this document if the local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. A major credit card will be needed for payment of the rented car, and, in general, all primary renters must be 21 years of age or older in order to hire a car.
