    Car hire from Lanzarote Airport

    Welcome to Lanzarote, the Spanish island of eternal spring and otherworldly scenery, holidaymakers' favourite hideaway off the African coast. Lanzarote belongs to the Canary Islands and is the fourth largest and the easternmost island in this uniquely beautiful archipelago. The volcanic origins of the Canary Islands are to be thanked for the extraordinary and at times lunar-like landscape, black sand beaches and the overall distinctive image of Lanzarote. The old name for the island translates as "ochre" and quite accurately depicts the second dominant colour on Lanzarote.

    How can you make sure you have seen all Lanzarote has to offer you? A car hire from Lanzarote Airport is certainly the best way to explore the many possibilities this fabulous island has. Some perks include 93 beaches ranging from black rocks to fine stretches of white sand, a national park, and perhaps surprisingly, a vast choice of artistic and cultural events. By choosing Auto Europe as your partner for cheap car rental from Lanzarote Airport, you are also choosing some of the best rates on the market and a vast fleet of vehicles.

    Airport Facilities

    As the only airport in Lanzarote, situated between the most popular tourist resort Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife, the airport is rather popular and busy. It operates frequent flights from a large number of destinations in Europe. The busiest day, traditionally, has been Thursday, as it is the main changeover day for hotels and resorts in Lanzarote. Lanzarote Airport has a range of shopping dining options, including several cafés and a restaurant with outdoor seating . The lack of a bureau de change is compensated by several ATMs dotted around the airport. Duty free shops and other shops feature a variety of products such as jewelry, fashion and food gifts.

    Passengers are welcome to use wireless internet for free during the first 30 minutes of usage. In case of emergency, you will find first aid facilities in Terminal 1 on the ground floor in the Arrivals Hall. The airport provides easy access for the disabled and also special areas just outside the arrivals and departures for picking up or dropping off disabled passengers. Business ticket and club card holders are welcome to relax in the VIP lounge located opposite the boarding gates 1 and 2 in Terminal 1.


    The capital of the island is connected with the airport by a bus service (Route 22) operating only from Monday to Friday, except on public holidays. The bus stops are located in front of the Arrivals Hall in both terminals. Route 23, on the other hand, connects the airport with Playa Honda, and operates only on Sundays and public holidays. The two other bus routes go to Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca. If you decide to have more freedom and mobility with a rental car in Lanzarote, pick up your vehicle and take it to Puerto del Carmen in only 8 minutes via LZ-2. Merge onto LZ-40 and keep driving. The destination will be on your right side.

    Parking Tips

    Both terminals at Lanzarote Airport have excellent parking possibilities and covered parking spaces. Both of them offer battery chargers and air compressors should you need them. The same rules for driving and parking apply as in Spain. It is not allowed to leave your car on blue, yellow and white lines on the road. Although it may not be indicated, it is also not allowed to park your car in front of dust bins, as they will be in the way of bin collectors. Your car will probably be towed away in this case. To avoid misunderstanding and possible fines, aim to park your car hire in car parks whenever possible
