RECORD Car Rental Services at Gran Canaria Airport

Gran Canaria Airport is also informally known as the Las Palmas Airport, and formerly referred to as the Gando Airport, due to its location in the Bay of Gando, on Gran Canaria Island. Gran Canaria is one of the larger Canary Islands and its airport serves over nine million passengers per year, which makes it the fifth busiest airport in Spain. The airport is also a hub for the airline carriers of Ryanair, a popular low-cost airline, Islas Airways, Naysa and Binter Canarias. The airport of Gran Canaria is well equipped with all essential facilities for its passengers, and offers a number of transport options, including rented cars from Record Rent A Car. Record Rent A Car is one of the local Gran Canaria Airport car hire companies.

The layout of Gran Canaria Airport is relatively simple for all passengers to navigate, as there is just a single terminal building that is divided into three zones. Zone A is used for all flights originating from other countries in the European Union, Zone B is for international fights from non-European Union countries and Zone C is dedicated to flights between the island airports. All arrivals are handled from the ground floor, and departures from the upper floor. Record Rent A Car is located within the terminal building, in the connecting passage between the international arrivals area and the European Union arrivals area, and can be accessed from the main arrivals lobby or from the baggage reclaim areas. The rented cars of Record are also parked within easy walking distance of the terminal, on the lower level of the airport’s car park.

Record Rent A Car is the number one Spanish car Hire Company, with over forty years of experience in the industry. Over their years of service they have become known as one of the top five car rental companies in the country, with locations at the airports of Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Barcelona and Alicante. Record has a fleet of over 30,000 vehicles, all of which are of only the latest models and of the best condition possible. This car hire company operates on a "reduced prices philosophy", and their prices are all-inclusive, leaving their customers with no unpleasant surprises. Cars from Record can be hired over the phone, directly from Gran Canaria Airport or online, from Record's website found at

Vehicles from Record come in all shapes and sizes, and among their many category options, customers are sure to find the ideal car for their holiday or business trip on the island of Gran Canaria. A rented car is by far one of the best forms of transport for exploring this spectacular island, and the easiest way to reach all the stunning beaches. The main road of the island is the GC-1 motorway, which runs from south to north along the eastern coastline of Gran Canaria, and directly past the airport. Motorists will travel north to the capital city of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, or south, to many of the most popular holiday resorts.

The smaller cars from Record Gran Canaria Airport are the Fiat Panda, Hyundai Getz, Fiat Punto or Seat Ibiza. These cars are ideal for a couple of passengers who are not carrying large quantities of luggage, and are usually available with very low rental rates. They are also considered to be very light on fuel, which could save a few Euros as well. Medium sized vehicles include the Volkswagen Polo, Opel Corsa, Volkswagen Golf or Skoda Fabia, all seating up to five passengers, while larger cars for seven people may be similar to the Volkswagen Touran 7-seater. The Mercedes Vito is an ideal choice for nine passengers, and has space for luggage as well.

Vehicles can have a manual or automatic transmission, and may use petrol or diesel. Customers renting a car should always choose a car with which they will be comfortable driving, and should confirm with Record which type of fuel to use. Automatic cars are often used for disabled drivers who request the use of hand controls, as the device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of this type of vehicle. At Gran Canaria Airport, hand controls are used free of charge, but must be booked as early as possible. A one way hire may be another option available for customers of Record. This option allows customers to collect their vehicle from Gran Canaria Airport car rental companies, but return it to a different rental location. One way hires may have additional charges depending on the length of the rental and the final destination of the vehicle.

In Spain, and from most car hire companies on the Canary Islands, the primary renter must be at least 21 years of age, and be able to present a valid drivers license issued in his/her country of residence. The license must also have been held for at least a year prior to the rental date. All foreign renters must arrange an International Driving Permit for their time in Spain, as Spanish Law requires this document. Certain car hire companies can assist their customers with the application for an IDP. The primary renter must have a major credit card in his/her name, and arrange suitable insurance for the rented car. However, at Record, certain insurances may be included in the quoted rental rates.
