Taxis are readily available at Tenerife South Airport, and the ride to Costa Adeje takes approximately 20 – 25 minutes and costs between 30 – 40 euros.

2. Shuttle Services:
Several shuttle services operate at the airport, providing shared rides to popular destinations like Costa Adeje. This cost-effective option allows you to share the journey with fellow travellers, making it a sociable and budget-friendly choice, between 10-15 euros. Keep in mind that travel times may vary depending on the number of stops. For a 5* airport shuttle service that cannot be beaten for price and efficiency we recommend Suntransfers, they are ABTA bonded and have excellent UK TrustPilot reviews.
3. Rental Cars
For the freedom to explore Tenerife at your own pace, renting a car is an excellent option. Although most of the rental agencies are conveniently located at the airport some will deliver the car to your Hotel if you prefer, we recommend autoreisen, cicar and sanasty because they have a no deposit policy which we like! The drive to Costa Adeje is quite straightforward along the main TF1 (South) and the cars cost between 20 -30 euros per day to hire. Ensure you’re familiar with local traffic rules and have a valid driver’s license before hitting the road. If you are looking to find the cheapest available car hire whilst you’re in Tenerife we have teamed up with Discover Cars to compare rental prices, we always use them to find the best prices.

Tenerife’s well-connected public bus network offers an economical way to reach Costa Adeje. Although a bus from Tenerife south airport to Costa Adeje may take a little longer due to multiple stops, it provides an authentic local experience. Check the bus schedule in advance, especially during weekends and holidays when services may be less frequent. The bus lines to Costa Adeje are 40/343 and the late night (after 10pm)/early morning line is 711, all of them cost around 4 euros for a one way journey .

5. Pre-booked Transfers
