When is the best time for travelling to Fuerteventura? Fuerteventura, which belongs to Spain, is a popular destination in summer, but especially in autumn and winter, because it is always spring in the cold months. The second largest island of the Canary Islands is especially good to discover with a hired car, which was found cheaply over a price comparison in the Internet.
Surfing best in the Summer!
Fuerteventura is known as the island of everlasting spring and is a very good destination for holidays during the Winter! On arrival at Fuerteventura Airport (FUE) you can expect temperatures of up to 25 degrees Celsius in November until April. Perfect conditions for a discovery tour with your personal hired car.
Especially if you arrive by plane, which is common practice, you will arrive at the airport south of Puerto del Rosario and can pick up your cheaply booked hired car directly at the car hire company's pick-up point.
The petrol stations on the island are usually open from 8.00 a. m. to 9.00 p. m. on weekdays. However, they are usually closed on Sundays. If you are driving to refuel with a hired car, ask at the time of collection whether it is a diesel or petrol vehicle. This is especially important because almost all petrol stations are self-service. In Spanish, petrol is called "Gasolina" and diesel is called "Gasoil", which you should not confuse. Be sure to fill up with unleaded fuel, which in Spanish means "sin plomo" when you drive a petrol engine.
Some Fuerteventura petrol stations offer night service, where you pay for the fuel at the vending machine, but this is only for emergencies and not for a full tank, but should be enough for the first km. In such cases, you should always have five or ten euro notes available in your car that you have found on the Internet.
Petrol station nearby
In the immediate vicinity of Fuerteventura airport there are two petrol stations, one in the village of Puerto del Rosario and one on the FV-2 motorway. The petrol station in Puerto del Rosario has a night counter so that you can refuel the car hired at the airport pick-up point to drive the first kilometres and reach your accommodation. Let us know in advance how the car should be returned to the Fuerteventura airport pick-up point at the Fuerteventura airport, whether it is refuelled or not. We recommend that you select the option to be fully-fledged when booking.
On the streets of Fuerteventura
Before you hire a car cheaply on the Internet through the price comparison, you should also familiarize yourself with the traffic rules at your holiday destination and obtain the relevant information. Since the island belongs to Spain and therefore to the European Union, they are similar to ours.
However, in the southern countries of Europe, such as Spain for example, you have to expect a higher and far more severe penalty for violations than in our country. You should therefore ensure that you do not violate the traffic rules in force in Spain and Fuerteventura.

Just when you want to visit the many different beaches, for example Costa Calma in the south or Corrajeljo in the north, directly from the airport. There are long sandy beaches for sunbathing and swimming around the town of Costa Calma, which is an important tourist centre. However, the old town of Costa Calma remained untouched and the centre for tourists was built outside. Close to Costa Calma is the kitesurfing area. If you are interested in this sport, please obtain important information in advance.
Morro Jable: beach paradise
And also the other villages of Fuerteventura are worth a trip and with the car, which you could hire cheaply by the price comparison with a local car hire company already before your holiday, not separated by many km and thus all quickly reached. Jandia and her small zoo is the perfect place for children to spend their holidays with you. In Morro Jable there is a daily ferry connection to Las Palmas, so that you can also get to know another Canary Island. But you can also enjoy a trip through the largest growing areas for Aloe Vera in Spain and even Europe with your hired car, which you could hire cheaply in the price comparison over the Internet.
Although Fuerteventura is the second largest island in the Canary Islands, with a hired car it is easy to explore the whole beauty of it. The roads to the various coastal towns, such as Costa Calma or Corrajeljo are well developed. You can reach them quickly by hired car from Fuerteventura airport in Puerto del Rosario. Make a road trip along the coast, which changes the landscape depending on whether you are in the south or north of the island. The long sandy beaches in the south invite you to swim and surf. The cliffs in the north offer a wonderful view over the Atlantic Ocean.
