Best cities to visit in Gran Canaria

  • Maspalomas: The trendiest location in Gran Canaria is not only full of resorts and a buzzing hub for nightlife and fine dining, but also boasts incredible beaches and natural beauties, such as the Maspalomas dunes. 
  • Roque Nublo: Hiking to Gran Canaria’s famous natural volcanic rock is a must for anyone who visits the island. Located in the UNESCO Roque Nublo rural park, the emblematic rock sits at 1,813 m altitude and is an astonishing 67 m tall. 
  • Pico de Las Neves: Standing at 1956 m altitude, Pico de Las Nieves is a popular tourist attraction for the incredible views of the island available from its highest point. The road to the top can be narrow and challenging, so a compact yet potent car is best for reaching the mountain’s peak.

Great service great cars and friendly staff always ready to help


I would give more stars if I could. What a great service and such kind people working there. Especially the woman who helped us with renting a car, she was such a sweet person. Everything was so well organised. I really loved the car we got and I can't thank this company enough for helping us out. We even got some great recommendations for exploring the island.


If you're looking for a place to rent a car, I could definitely recommend them!


Thank you so much, we had a great time exploring the Island. :)

Great experience! We had a great car, exceptional customer service, and the fastest rental to receipt of car I've experienced from a rental company! Claudia offered amazing service and every rental agent will now be judged against her performance.

At the beginning of August I went on holiday with my family to Gran Canaria where we have been coming for years in one of the hotels of Loposan, always perfect, we decided to rent a car for 2 days.

But at home in the Netherlands there was a TV program about fraud at rental companies that withheld the deposit with damage. So we were very careful.

In the end we chose Sixt in Maspalomas, not the cheapest but also not the most expensive, just neat.

We were helped by a friendly young lady who told that she has been in The Hague for 5 years, I have forgotten her name, but she could also speak a bit of Dutch.

she rented us a Volkswagen troc convertible and gave us an upgrade so we paid the price of a mini convertible again top and thank you!

our girls even got to choose which color! I myself have a car wash and car detailing company, so I immediately noticed that the car is given neat and clean, so also my compliments to the man and woman who keep everything tidy in the parking lot downstairs.

we received a confirmation by mail and a document with a few minor damages on the car scratch left scratch right of course we also checked this ourselves and went.

After 2 days of enjoying the vw troc convertible it was time to hand it in

this also went perfectly, of course we returned it neatly and with a full tank.

and received an email confirmation of the return and that everything was in order.


Or while at Sixt Maspalomas it is 100% top arranged


And thanks again on behalf of the Stuart family.

Excellent service at the branch! Cintia was very friendly and helpful and offered us solutions that fitted our requirements perfectly! She also gave us some local tips of places to visit which was great! The car return was seamless and straightforward and handled in the same manner. Will definitely be using SIXT again!
