Speed and traffic rules in Gran Canaria

Beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

In Las Palmas and the rest of the Canary Island, the Spanish traffic rules generally apply. Always plan enough time for your trip, because driving in the mountains with all the winding roads requires maximum concentration. Unless otherwise stated, the following maximum speeds apply on the island:

  • Inner towns: 50 km/h
  • Motorway: 100 km/h

Parking and refuelling a hired car in Las Palmas

City of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

The easiest way is to park the hired car in one of the parking garages. Here you are charged by the minute. In white parking zones you can park continuously for free and in blue parking zones you have to get a parking ticket. At night, on weekends and at lunchtime, the blue areas are normally free.
Compared to other European countries, fuel prices on Gran Canaria are very reasonable. Nevertheless, one can also save here when refuelling. The gas station network is quite dense, so you should have no problems finding a gas station. Outside of towns, petrol prices are usually somewhat cheaper.
