Getting Around While You Are In Lanzarote

Getting around in Lanzarote is easy if you rent a car. Most travelers on holiday will find that renting a car or using the public transportation system are the easiest ways to get around the island. But, if you really want to craft your own holiday experience, then you will want to rent a car.

Almost all of the larger cities or areas like Puerto Del Carmen are fine places to rent a car. Just remember that it is unlikely that you will be able to rent a car unless you are at least 21 years old. This is a little different than the standard age of 25 that is used in the United States and still other countries may be different. Also, keep in mind that you will need to keep cash with you, since the gas stations around the island may not be able to accept your credit card.

Renting a car is pretty simple on the island, as long as you make arrangements ahead of time. But, still others may be able to use a tour bus to get around. There are many guided tours on the island. You may be able to find a tour that goes from the north-west side of the island all the way over to the south-east side. A guided tour will stop so you can enjoy many different activities and you are often charged one flat fee for the entire experience. But remember to set this tour up before hand – they can fill up pretty quickly, especially during the more busy times of the season.

There are also public transportation methods and you will surely be able to hire a taxi if you really need to get somewhere. However, most people on holiday find it best to arrange a rental car before they get to the island, and then pick it up when they arrive. That seems to be the easiest way of getting around while in Lanzarote.
