The island city of Las Palmas has an efficient public transport system. Visitors can tour the city by renting a car.

Visitors are required to present a photocopy of their driver's license and pay an initial insurance deposit before they can rent a car.

Visitors going to the island generally arrive by plane that lands in the Gran Canaria Airport, which has three zones. Zone A is for flights from countries in the European Union, Zone B handles all other international flights, and Zone C supports inter-island flights.
