Top tips for hiring a car in La Gomera

  • With car hire in La Gomera, you will be able to experience this idyllic island with freedom and unlimited access. Being a very small island with limited public transportation to smaller villages, hiring a car on this Canary Island will allow you to truly explore. While roads are very well maintained, the curvy and narrow streets in the mountain sides, valleys and ravines add a different kind of adventure – perfect for 4x4 hire or a convertible to feel the sun on your face. You can get great deals on La Gomera car hire from a number of reputable companies, including Avis, Enterprise, Budget and several others.
  • La Gomera has a speed limit of 30 mph (50 km/h) in the towns and 55 mph (90 km/h) in the country. A careful and moderate speed would be recommended with all the winding terrain, especially if you are not used to driving on the right-hand side of the road. Children will need to be in a car seat if they are under 1.35 m in height, and this can be obtained from your car hire company as an add-on. To make your trip around La Gomera even more pleasant, consider hiring a satellite navigation system, to help you find your way around the villages of the island, and share the driving load with a second driver.
  • There will be no borders or toll gates to worry about when hiring a car in Gomera due to the fact the entire island spans only approximately 15 miles (25 km) in distance. When you collect your vehicle, make sure you check the body work for any previous damage and make notes with your attendant. A way to ensure you save money on your La Gomera car hire is to return it at the same time of day as your collection. Many car hire companies will charge per 24-hour period, and if you are a few hours late, it may be considered an extra day.

FAQs about hiring a car in La Gomera

  • Should I hire a car in La Gomera?

    Hiring a car in La Gomera is a great solution due to the fact the island is still (for the most part) quite rural and public transport doesn’t reach all the spots you may wish to visit. If you would like to truly get to know the region, car hire will ensure you can get to see the far-flung parts, such as vast volcanic mountain tops where great hiking adventures await. Beach-hopping is also made easier when you have a vehicle at your disposal.

  • What is driving like in La Gomera?

    Despite being small, La Gomera has very well-maintained roads with not much traffic, even at peak tourist times. An economy vehicle can handle the terrain as easily as a sturdier 4x4. Most of the locals don’t take risks on the road due to the winding nature of the island's layout. When looking for petrol, you will be able to find many locally owned service stations, where attendants may even live on the property. Make sure your Spanish is up to scratch to get service, and don’t skimp on your car hire insurance when you are in a foreign country with different driving rules.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in La Gomera?

    For the most part, you can hire a car if you are over 21 years of age. Some privately owned agencies may require you to be at least 25 or will charge you a young driver’s fee. You will need to have your international driver's permit with you as well as your local hometown license. Don’t forget to also take your photographic ID, such as a passport, and your credit card. If you wear glasses, your car hire company may ask you to bring a second pair, as it is law to have a second pair in the car in case of damage to the first.
