Getting Around

The bus service is run by Titsa and is operational all over the island, as well as within Santa Cruz and other towns. Holidaymakers using the bus frequently should purchase a Bono card. Travellers can take a taxi anywhere on the island, but it is an expensive way to get around; hiring a car is a convenient and more cost-effective transport solution. Car rental outlets are available at the airport and major resorts in Tenerife, and same-day rentals shouldn't be a problem.
