Transport in Lanzarote

Lanzarote is definitely an island to explore, whether on foot, by bike, bus or car, you can’t miss every corner of the island and be surprised by its charms. Below we give you the pros and cons of each of the options offered by the island so that you can explore it from end to end.


If your plan is to get around the island by bus, here are the best tips and information on how to do it in the best possible way. 

This is an excellent way to get between the main tourist areas (Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen, Arrecife and Costa Teguise), however it may be a little more complicated if you want to get to the villages of the island that are off the beaten track. The main public transport companies on the island offer a service to these off the beaten track areas but you will need to transfer or start from the bus terminal in the island’s capital (Arrecife). Below you will find a link to access the routes, prices and bus lines of the island so you can move around the island with this means of transport.

Rent a car

The island offers a wide range of car rentals of all ranges and sizes, which will give you the comfort and flexibility you need to get around without any problems.

At the airport you’ll find local and international car hire companies, giving you a well-balanced list of options to choose from to suit your needs.

We recommend checking online and booking your car before you arrive on the island to save you money and, more importantly, time at your destination.


Of course, Lanzarote has a taxi service so you can get around the island without any problems. Obviously this service is not the cheapest if your plan is to travel around the island from end to end, but it is an excellent alternative for getting to and from the airport or going out for dinner without the need to drive.

We recommend this service as an ideal and complementary alternative to the others mentioned above.
