Alamo Car Rental Lanzarote Airport

Alamo Lanzarote Airport Guide Car Hire

Lanzarote Airport serves the island of Lanzarote, which is also one of the larger Canary Islands that are famous for their spectacular beaches, holiday resorts and vast array of other historical and geographical attractions. This airport is located nearby the island’s capital city, Arrecife, Play del Cable, Playa Honda, Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen, which are all popular destinations for local and international tourists. The best way to explore the island is by rented car from one of the car hire companies at Lanzarote Airport, such as Alamo. Alamo Lanzarote Airport offers competitive rental rates and a wide range of quality vehicles for hire.

Alamo, at this rental location, is located in the arrival halls of the terminal buildings, and is easily accessible from both the baggage reclaim areas and the main arrival lobbies. They are open from 07:00 to 22:00, seven days a week, with few exception hours over public holidays. Customers will therefore always be able to reserve a vehicle from Alamo, or return their car at the time specified on their rental agreement. Passengers will also find the rented cars parked nearby, in the airport’s car parking lot, which is within easy walking distance of the terminal building. Lanzarote Airport car rental is therefore very convenient, and an ideal form of transport on the island.

From the airport, motorists can use the main LZ-2 motorway to reach many nearby destinations on the island, including Arrecife, which is just five kilometres away. The popular Playa Blanca is located to the south of Lanzarote, and is a 45 minute drive from the airport, while it will take just fifteen to twenty minutes to reach Puerto del Carmen and the Costa Teguise. Customers hiring a vehicle from Alamo will need a valid drivers license and an International Driving Permit if from a foreign country. Although Alamo may only require an IDP if the local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet (with Greek licenses as the exception), Spanish Law requires all foreign drivers to carry such a document at all times. A major credit card will also be needed for payment of the car hire period, as Lanzarote Airport car hire companies seldom accept debit cards.

The minimum age required to rent a car from Alamo in Spain is 21, but all drivers under the age of 25 are considered to be ‘young drivers’, and will pay a higher rental rate than usual. The higher rates are due to young drivers insurance, which is a small amount applicable to each day of car rental, and each underage driver listed on the rental agreement. A young drivers insurance fee is common practice amongst all major car hire companies at Lanzarote Airport, but their additional charges may differ. The primary renter of the vehicle must ensure that adequate insurance is arranged, as not all quotes include collision damage waiver and theft protection. Most quotes however, include third party liability insurance. Further details will be provided by Alamo, when making vehicle reservations.

Car rental customers on a budget may consider hiring one of Alamo’s smaller vehicles, such as the Fiat Seicento 1.1 or Citroen C2 1.1, found in the Economy category. These cars seat up to four passengers, and have room for two luggage items. They are not particularly spacious, but do provide good transport on the island of Lanzarote. Families with more luggage to carry may need a larger vehicle, perhaps from Alamo’s Midsize, Midsize Wagon or Standard categories, which include vehicles similar to the Citroen C5 1.6, Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6 and Citroen C5 2.0. Some of these vehicles come with an automatic transmission, while others have a manual (stick-shift) transmission. Always try to rent a car that will be comfortable for your driving skills, and with enough room for your luggage and passengers.

Alternative vehicle options from Alamo include Vans, similar to the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso 1.8, with seating for seven passengers, and the Opel Vivaro, ideal for up to nine people. SUVs may also be quite a popular choice, and are similar to the Jeep 4x4 1.8. Many of Alamo’s vehicles have nice features, such as air conditioning, ABS brakes, air bags and power steering.

At Lanzarote Airport, hand controls may be available from Alamo for disabled drivers with a lower limb deficiency, and one way hires are an option for customers who do not wish to return to the airport. Hand controls should be reserved in advance and are free of charge, but a one way hire from Lanzarote Airport may incur additional expenses, which mainly depend on the vehicle’s end destination. If it is nearby the airport, there may not be any extra charges, but if further away, a certain amount may be charged for the one way hire. Be careful to confirm with Alamo if the rented car may be taken on ferries to other Canary Islands, should this be part of your travel itinerary.

Customers can contact Alamo, at Lanzarote Airport for all further details.

What clients of car hire with say:

We were going to hire a couple of estate cars but the car rental people advised us to take a people carrier instead, as it’s more economical and comfortable. Great choice!
