Car Hire at Lanzarote Airport

Car Hire

Lanzarote Airport is only 9km from Arrecife which is the island's capital. It is relatively easy to drive to and from Lanzarote Airport via the Arrecife- Yaiza (LZ-2) road, taking the clearly marked exit at kilometre point number 4. It will take around 45 minutes to drive to Playa Blanca and 20 and 15 minutes to Puerto del Carmen and the Costa Teguise.

If you are going to use Lanzarote Airport car hire, the roads all over the island tend to be quiet (outside the main resorts) and well sign posted. The only difficult bit of road is in the North via Haria to the Mirador Del Rio, where there are some hairpins but well worth the drive as the views are fantastic.

The main thing to remember is that you drive on the right, but also:

  • always go anti-clockwise round a roundabout
  • If you turn right off a main road on to a minor road, you need to give way to people who have turned left
  • Traffic on a main road doesn't give way to traffic joining from a slip road
  • Never cross a solid white line as you will be fined

Another cultural difference on the island is that local drivers often do not use their indicators when making a turn, but often use them when slowing down. So make sure you leave plenty of space between you and the car in front to give yourself time to react to the unexpected!

In the majority of tourist attractions there is plenty of free parking. Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen Avenida de las Playas tend to have pay and display which is marked by blue bays.

In Arrecife the best place to find parking is on Charco San Gines car park on the seafront between Calle le Real and Puerto Naos next to El Charco with its children’s playground.
