Lanzarote can be explored by a variety of means of transport. Either public or private, these means range from buses to bikes.
Arrecife Bus is the main bus operator in Lanzarote. Due to the generous network of lines Arecife Bus makes available, virtually the entire island of Lanzarote is opened to tourists’ exploration. Lines 22 and 23 should be particularly taken into account by those intending to get to Lanzarote by air, since these are the only two lines ticking off Arrecife Airport.
The purchase and the validation of a ticket are mandatory for all tourists (or locals, for that matter) resorting to the services provided by Arrecife Bus, except for children under 4. Certain discounts are also available, depending on the length and frequency of bus trips. However, some tend to believe getting around in Lanzarote by bus is not the most inspired choice, since this means of transport does not offer a direct access to the main tourist attractions. Yet, for further details on schedules, lines, rates and the like use the following information:
Taxis are a definite option for those who want to make their own schedule while staying in Lanzarote. Taxis are neither cheap nor expensive, though they are recommendable for shorter distances. But then again the island of Lanzarote is small enough to be easily and relatively cheaply crossed by taxi.
Lanzarote Taxi is one of the main taxi companies in Lanzarote. The services put forward by this operator do not come down exclusively to the mere common taxi services. They also make available trips and tours by taxi, as well as they give clients the possibility to book a taxi in advance. Disabled people too can resort to this company, since the operator also owns a special car fleet adapted for such people.
Depending on the municipality, tourists should dial the following phone numbers in order to resort to a taxi.
Getting around by car is also possible in Lanzarote. Driving around on this island is enabled by the some 20 car rental companies operating in Lanzarote. The offer is more than generous, so all tourists should worry about is to carry their driving license and to comply with any of the regulations enforced by the respective operators, regulations and requirements which are nothing out of the ordinary (such as minimum age 23, and the like).
Though not as popular as other mainstream means of transport, biking is a definite alternative for those who want to break the conventional and comfortable options and face the wild Lanzarote as it really is. To this end, tourist should rely on the services put forward by the bike rental companies operating in Lanzarote.
The small island La Graciosa pertains, administratively speaking, to the municipality of Teguise. This is why exhausting Lanzarote from a tourist point of view implies the visiting of La Graciosa. Lineas Maritimas Romero and Biosfera Express are the main sea line companies offering regular trips to La Graciosa.
