"No one said that it was easy to run a company, especially if you compete with the biggest fish", Alicia Álvarez, TopCar deputy director.
However, our rent a car company in the Canary Islands has been successful for thirty years. It started out in the airports of Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura. At the beginning it had fifty Japanese utility vehicles, five employees and a dream. Today we have a fleet of four thousand cars, a human team formed by more than one hundred workers and new offices in Lanzarote, Tenerife and La Palma. But not only that, we have been recognized at international level obtaining numerous prizes for offering a quality service.
Thirty years later, TopCar continues to be the dream of its founder and managing director, Rafael Cabral. The key to its success? Without a doubt the knowledge of the sector of rental vehicles without driver in a fragmented territory such as the Canary Islands, its policy of transparency and personal treatment.
Challenges for the future? In an growing fragmented market with an increasingly connected traveller, the digitalisation of TopCar is one of the challenges for the near future.
They are committed to quality service and the constant renewal of their fleet, which is part of their strategy, as well as new technologies which play a fundamental key role. That is why we are working on the launch of a new self-management application which will improve processes, having a direct impact on greater customer service.
Now it's time to visit charming villages and spots to enjoy the landscapes and thousand contrasts that the Canary Islands give you, passing through enchanted forests to kilometre-long beaches of fine golden sand. Of course, driving with TopCar. Are you coming?
We have made a list with the artificial swimming pools we consider the best in the Canaries. Have you already bathed in all of them?
In TopCar we have made a small list with our favorite places of this "miniature continent" called Gran Canaria.
Every Thursday “La Ruta de los Pinchos” takes place at 20:00 in the historic district of Vegueta from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, this day there is a great atmosphere and worth visiting this area. Now we show you 4 restaurants where you can actually try these tasty “pinchos” (small snack plus a drink from 2 Euros).
