Well we spent the previous two autumns / winters in Tenerife and if it wasn't for Brexit we would be about to go back again now. So the first one was 19/20 and ended in lockdown. The last one was 20/21 and was the one with no tourists and our next one with be 21/22 when we go back in December.

As far as I'm concerned, 'last year' ran from 01/01/2020 until 31/12/2020, and as I previously stated I was in PdS between 18/02/2020 until 20/03/2020. I had only 6 days to endure of 'lock down' in Tenerife before I flew home. We're still living through 2021, aren't we?

TimO, I think we are disagreeing when "last year" was. We were there from end of Oct 2020 to end of March 2021 and there were hardly any tourists because of lock downs.

We were also there the previous autumn and winter but it was pre-covid apart from the last few days in March 2020, so normal numbers of tourists

Sorry, Tanemera, Cicar's prices have gone up. Last year I paid €350 for a rental of four weeks. This year coming for a four-week rental period of from December 30th 2021 until 27th January 2022 I will have to pay €654??

Just booked our usual Seat Ibiza for 3 days middle of November TFS to drop off in LG and it was €116 about €6 more than February 2020. Not much difference there. We use the car to get to LG from the airport and then get the apartment stocked up with it. We then walk or use the busses for the rest of our stay. Never seen the point of hiring for the whole stay.

There were tourists there. I came out a lot later than usual on 18/02/2020 this was down to the unavailability of flights from Cork with Aer Lingus earlier on in January 2020. Normally, I would have been out around 10th or 11th of January 2020. I know that the amount of tourists ease down around the end of January or early February, but even though I came over a lot later than I usually did, there were still a decent number of tourists around the place. When I returned home on 20th March 2020 Tenerife South airport was packed with tourists returning home before they'd end up being stranded due to the Covid-19 pandemic?

I think car rental was very cheap last winter because there were hardly any tourists there.

The particle sensor of my environmental monitor on our balcony can see nano particles from the volcano but they seem to have dropped off since a peak on saturday. Must be the wind direction changing I think as the volcano shows no sign of stopping.

Cicar prices don't appear to have changed. I just booked a car with them and price was exactly the same as last year. Autoreisen prices are now very close to Cicar. Maybe they have replaced there ageing fleet.
