This is not only completely legal, it's how all hotels work. They have a published check-out time, which will vary between hotels but is usually somewhere between 10am and 1pm. if you wish to stay longer, you need to request either a late checkout (which may be free, or may be charged, depending on a number of factors), or pay for an extra night. In my ...

This is perfectly normal. Checkout times at hotels are usually between 10:00 and 12:00 and you need to pay something extra (sometimes for the next night, sometimes less - depending on hotel rules) for overstaying. Most hotels offer their guests to leave their luggage for free for the rest of the day. So in this case I would check-out of the hotel in the ...

Yes, there is. However, information on internet is quite poor, therefore I describe my own experiences here. On 21 December 2012, I travelled from Gran Canaria airport via Las Palmas, Agaete, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Los Cristianos to Santa Cruz de La Palma. The ferry company Fred Olsen operates many ferry-bus connections. I will describe my experiences ...

Well, I was able to beat @gerrit's connection, by taking a ferry run by Naviera Armas. As of February 4th 2013, total price is 23 EUR (compared to 59 EUR for bus plus Fred Olsen): 9 EUR: Ticket for Bus 111 from Tenerife South airport to Santa Cruz Intercambiador, bought inside the bus. The bus took perhaps an hour, I didn't measure time. nothing: Walking ...

You can take the ferry with Fred Olsen. There should be buses from Tenerife South Airport to Santa Cruz de Tenerife. From the main bus station, there are then dedicated buses to the ferry terminal, from where there are several ferries per day to Gran Canaria. The bus from the intercambiador (bus station) to the ferry terminal (a short ride) is included in ...

Short answer, to echo the other answers: it's entirely legal. Checkout time is checkout time, typically anywhere from 9am - 1pm (0900 - 1300). Depending on the situation, you may be able to extend this to within an hour or so of check-in time (typically 3pm), and a late checkout may or may be free. Factors which affect the situation include: what the ...

TL;DR; Hotel was right (I was wrong) - to pay for one extra day was most appropriate solution. As an addition to the above answers there is a long discussion in comments around was it legal to keep my belongings (this is what I was looking for). In one of comments @piet.t refers to the hotelkeepers liens article. Hotelkeeper’s liens allow a ...

I've visited the canary island several times and rented cars from Cicar. It was recommended by a german travel guide (book) as reliable company. Cicar is a native car rental company and claims to be the largest one on the canary islands, with the most offices. Personally, I had no problems with their cars or their service and would choose them again. ...

You Might Have to Hike After reading up on hiking and stargazing on Mount Teide I'm starting to get the feeling that private spots, far away from organised groups and other similar tourists, will require you to hike one of the many trails available. Hence your second condition (reachability by car) won't be fully satisfied. Moreover I'm under the ...

There's at least one article online saying it's illegal in protected areas around it, from the Independent: Rock star: The volcanic attraction of Tenerife Then, after a brief stop to allow the children to examine some lava shrapnel (it turned out that it was illegal to remove stones from these protected areas), we reached the vast caldera of Teide ...

I just found out that I will be able to access the peak! By booking a night at the Altavista refuge, they let us climb to the peak in the early morning (only)! Access to the crater It is advisable to leave the refuge at about 6 am, to reach the Teide crater before dawn. When you stay overnight at Altavista del Teide Refuge, you are entitled ...

I highly recommend visiting El Teide, the large volcano at the centre of Tenerife. It attracts visitors, but as it's quite remote, only the more adventurous bother to go there. The Teide National Park, which surrounds the volcano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cable car ride up the volcano is definitely worth a look, and the last 500 feet of walking to ...

With regards to Tenerife: http://therealtenerife.com/ This website is devoted to the parts of Tenerife that most websites gloss over. Most people’s holidays to Tenerife tend to involve heading to the sunny, purpose built resorts of the south. However much of the rest of Tenerife is where the Canarios live, work and play; a place where traditions and ...

You will need to go through UK immigration to change airports. I am assuming you are an Indian citizen and don't have a European residence permit. In that case, you will need a visa. Merely holding a short-stay visa (which is required to enter Spain) is not enough to qualify for visa-free transit. You won't be able to get this visa on arrival (in fact, you ...

Take bus number 110 from Playa Americas (Estacion) to Santa Cruz. The trip is around 2 hours and according to the operator's website it will cost around 15€. I also assume you can just ...

Yes there are flights direct from Moscow to Tenerife, although these are not your regularly scheduled variety. There are charters operated by ВИМ Авиа and Transaero which can be booked from Chartex as well as charters operated by Aeroflot and Н5 that can be booked from Ticket-Charter. These are chartered flights, so restrictions and other issues may befall ...

Camping Permit? Yes but which one? According to the website of the Council of Tenerife, campers who wish to use the public camping facilities scattered across the islad require a permit. Note that various camping permits exist, which can be requested either online or in person: Using a motorhome/camper van/mobilhome in a camping facility - In person ...

There are two bus lines for Teide, 342 line and 348 but none of them are good for you. However, Titsa Buses are oriented to transportation, not tourism, so, Maybe the bus won't wait for you when you leave it. Some people use those lines for hiking through Las Cañadas or even to reach the peak. (Maybe this is what you want). Other options are a taxi, which I ...

You cannot collect rocks, use a geological hammer, collect plants or wildlife anywhere in the National Park. About two years ago some Germans decided that the rules didn't apply to them, so they went to board a flight back to Munich with 500 grammes of rocks. They didn't leave Tenerife as they were stopped at the boarding gate, their bags opened and they ...

There is one thing missing from the other answers: In every hotel I ever stayed in (in total about 50), they tell you in person what the check out time is while you check in. They tell you even if you don't ask. If you book through a website or a travel agency doesn't matter, the one telling you about checkout times is the person who checks you in at the ...

From what it appears having looked on travel comparison sites for available flights there are no direct flights between Moscow & Tenerife. You didn't mention any particular date of travel so I chose a week departing 3rd April, returning 10th April 2013. Sample results from the comparison site kayak.co.uk indicate flights with a stop over in either ...
