Taxis in Tenerife usually operate on a metered system, which means that they are equipped with a device that records the number of kilometres travelled on the journey.

Passengers in a taxi are entitled to ensure that the metre device is turned on and in working condition, and may also discuss the average price for the journey before leaving the airport. Although the majority of taxi drivers are considered to be honest and friendly, especially from a respected company such as Taxi Tenerife, it is recommended to try and find out the average price of your journey beforehand, so that you can be aware if the driver is overcharging, or if the rate he offers sounds unreasonable. Keep in mind that taxi fares are more expensive during weekdays from ten at night to six in the morning, as well as all day during holidays.
