Typically, to rent a car in Fuerteventura you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the supplier's terms to figure out what the exact charge will be before you book your car.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Fuerteventura?
When cruising through Fuerteventura or the rest of Spain, you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through ESP.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Fuerteventura trip, make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:

- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
