Who are we?

We are undoubtedly one of the most experienced rent-a-car companies in Tenerife. Back in 1981, when tourism was yet to be a big thing in the south west of the island, my father started the business with a small fleet of just five cars. I was there from the very beginning of Poul’s Auto and in recent years I have been continually improving my knowledge of what it takes to be a welcoming and trustworthy rent-a-car company owner. My wife and I have taken care of the company since 1997 and although Poul’s Auto has continued to expand with every passing year, we are still the same friendly, family-run business as we were from the start. The only difference now is that we have grown quite considerably in size and now have a fleet of about 100 cars, with an overwhelming rate of 70% of our clients being repeat customers. This stands as irrefutable evidence of the quality service we provide to our clients!

We want you to benefit from our experience and flexibility!
