Our car rental on Fuerteventura works in partnership with Top Car Autoreisen. Its logo and desk are clearly visible in the arrivals hall of the airport. Fuerteventura Airport is also known as El Matorral Airport and is located just over three miles South West of the island's capital, Puerto del Rosario.
Driving on the island of Fuerteventura is straightforward. Road surfaces are generally very good and destinations are clearly signposted. Spanish regulations state that children under 12 must not ride in the front seats of vehicles.
Parking, both free and paid, is plentiful across the island, especially in the remoter and quieter areas. The main towns such as Puerto del Rosario and Corralejo have clearly marked public car parks but these can get busy at peak times.
Your car rental in Fuerteventura gives you the flexibility to set your own itinerary and really get to know this charming Canary Island. The island was declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 2009 and your journey from one end to the other takes you through beautiful natural parks and along stunning coastlines. The island's capital, Puerto del Rosario is a relatively new town but does have a bustling port and pleasant promenade to explore while its centre is full of quirky street art. If this has whetted your artistic appetite, visit the open-air sculpture park where you can admire hundreds of works by local artists. Corralejo sitting on the Northern tip of the island gives you a greater sense of history, with narrow cobbled streets and fishermen's cottages. Miles of sand dunes protect its broad sandy beaches. Other historic and picturesque towns to visit are Antigua in the centre of the island and Betancuria, Fuerteventura's original capital. It is also located in the centre and now enclosed within a rural park.
