Information on Lanzarote Car Hire

Car Hire in Lanzarote

Compare & Save - Prices from £8/day

Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands, and is situated eighty miles off the African coast.  It’s the ideal year-round holiday destination, with low rainfall and temperatures that vary from 21°C in January to 29°C in August.  The landscape shows the volcanic origins of the island, with amazing rock formations and traces of lava flows.  The coastline offers a variety of white sand beaches and dramatic stretches of surf, and due to strict rules governing high-rise buildings the island remains one of the most unspoilt of the more popular holiday destinations.   The two major towns are Arrecife, the island’s capital, and Teguise.

Top Things to do in Lanzarote

To get the most out of your visit to the island you need a car to explore some of the hidden gems.  For car hire, Lanzarote offers the visitor a range of choice, and you can arrange a pick-up from the airport on arrival.  There are numerous beaches to visit, all with their own unique attractions – from Playa del Papagayo with its stretch of golden sands, to Las Coloradas, ideal for sports fishing. 

Top 3 Must See: Lanzarote

  • National Park of Timanfaya

  • La Cueva de los Verdes, a cave system that runs for 7 kms from Corona to the sea

  • Casas Honda, volcanic caves lived in by the original inhabitants of the island

Some of the most stunning features of the volcanic landscape include the longest volcanic tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, and Timanfaya National Park, which boasts a still active volcano, Montana de Fuego.  You can even have your steak cooked on a volcanic crater in some of the restaurants.   A visit to the plantation of cactuses at Guatiza provides an entirely different sort of landscape, and the boat excursions to some of the little surrounding islands and sea caves should not be missed.   

Drive Around Lanzarote

As the island is small, you can plan your excursions by car to take in long leisurely lunches in some of the excellent little seafood restaurants.  Traffic is minimal, and the roads are good, even some of the minor roads in the interior, so driving is a pleasure.  There are warnings about the unique approach of locals to roundabouts, but apart from that nothing but praise from visitors who have opted for car hire in Lanzarote.  Use the opportunity to visit the buildings designed by one of the island’s most famous sons, Cesar Manrique, or explore the variety of small beaches and coves.
