LEISURE TRAVEL CYCLING

Thinking about whether it will be better to bring your bike or rent one when you arrive in Tenerife?

We help you to make the best decision.

There are many professional cyclists who choose Tenerife to train. But choosing this destination to spend a vacation on the bike is not just a matter of professionals.

More and more bicycle enthusiasts decide to come to enjoy the island on two wheels. However, when preparing your trip, it is normal for you to ask yourself something very important: do I take my bike on the plane or do I hire one in Tenerife?

In this post we help you choose the best option, knowing the pros and cons of each choice. 

What is better: take my own bike or hire one?

Although it would be great to have a universal answer, the truth is that it does not exist. Therefore, we tell you the key points of each option so that you can decide the best according to your needs.

Advantages and disadvantages of bringing your bike on the plane

The main advantage of bringing yours in is that you can enjoy your own bike. You already know it, you know how it works and there will be no surprises.

If your bike is a custom built, has specific features or is a high performance one, it can be difficult to find a similar one to rent.

On the other hand, the main disadvantage of bringing your bike is that you have to spend a lot of time disassembling it and packing it as carefully as possible. Don't forget that it will go in the plane, and baggage handlers are not particularly known for their delicacy.

If you bring your own bike, you take the risk that it may suffer some damage that will cloud your vacation or you may even lose it along the way. In addition, the cost in some airlines are very high.

Finally, traveling with such a large package is quite annoying, not only inside the terminal, but also on the way to and from the airport itself.

Hire a bike in Tenerife

If you don't want to spend half a day disassembling and packing each part, and another day unpacking and assembling your bike, the best option is to rent it at the destination.

You also won't have to think about picking up the bike at the check-in belt once you arrive, you can save a lot of time at the airport.

In addition, hiring a bike in Tenerife can be much cheaper than paying the excess baggage that a bike carries with some companies.

If you can find a good bike rental company where you can get one equal to or superior to yours, the best option will be to hiret it. This will avoid all the headaches involved in bringing yours.
