For these reasons and because of the added inconvenience caused by queuing for a Taxi upon arrival, pre-booking an airport transfer makes a lot of sense. Click on the link below for a quote.
Tenerife is the largest island in the Canaries and its mountainous terrain often means that there are considerable distances to travel by road to reach your resort. Even though there are two airports on the island, most low-cost carriers such as Ryanair fly into the south airport (Reina Sofia) which is a considerable journey from Santa Cruz and a staggering 91km from Puerto de la Cruz. Taxis over long journeys such as these are not cheap – for example: a taxi from Tenerife South Airport to Los Gigantes/Puerto de Santiago costs around €50 each way. A pre-booked airport transfer costs around €12.50.
