Avis Lanzarote Airport Guide Car Hire

Lanzarote Airport served 4.9 million passengers in 2010, and is an important airport of the Canary Islands. A number of low-cost airline companies are present, such as Ryanair and Air Berlin, as well as the carriers of Air Europa, Spanair and Binter Canarias, with their main destinations to mainland Spain and the other islands. The airport of Lanzarote is found along the island’s eastern coastline, just southwest of Arrecife, Lanzarote’s capital. The airport is also nearby the areas of Playa Honda, Las Playas, Playa del Cable, Puerto del Carmen and the Costa Teguise. Lanzarote Airport car hire companies operate from within the terminal buildings, and include Avis. Many passengers choose Avis for their quality services and low rental rates.

Lanzarote Airport consists of two terminal buildings, which both have car hire facilities in their arrival areas. Terminal 1 is the older of the two buildings, and houses the majority of the check-in desks, boarding gates and baggage reclaim carousels, as all domestic and international arrivals and departures are handled from this building. Terminal 2 is newer, and was constructed for use by airline companies with inter-island flights. Avis Lanzarote Airport can be found in the arrival areas, and are open from 07:00 to 22:00. Passengers may also arrange their vehicle from Avis’ website, in advance of their flight to the airport, at Online, all the details regarding Avis’ rental terms and conditions are displayed, as well as example vehicles in all their car categories available at Lanzarote Airport.

When hiring a vehicle from Avis, at this rental location, the primary renter is required to be at least 23 years of age, however, certain vehicle categories require a higher minimum age of 25. These car groups include L (Luxury), M (Full Size Van), O (Premium Van), N (Standard Size Van) and P (Mini Van). Drivers must also have held their local license for at least two years prior to the rental date. In terms of driving licences, Avis accepts most which are printed in a Roman alphabet, as well as those from Greece, but foreign drivers are required by Spanish Law to carry an International Driving Permit when driving on the mainland, as well as on any of the Canary or Balearic Islands. Customers at Avis from the United Kingdom will need to show both parts of their driving license (paper document and durable card) should they have the new 2-part Photocard.

Although third party liability insurance is usually included in rentals from Avis, all other insurances are optional, and should be separately arranged. If your credit card does not offer sufficient coverage for the rented car, insurance is recommended to be purchased locally from Avis, at Lanzarote Airport, as this will reduce, or even remove the insurance excess. Further enquiries can be made at the rental desk upon your arrival at the airport.

Additional services from Lanzarote Airport car rental companies may include the hire of car seats and other equipment, for example, satellite navigation systems and luggage racks. Disabled drivers at Avis may also be able to request the use of hand controls at Lanzarote Airport. This device is ideal for use by persons with a lower limb deficiency, as it operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. At Lanzarote Airport, hand controls will need to be reserved at least 48 hours prior to your arrival at the airport, and are free of charge. Other equipment hired will cost a few extra Euros per day of rental, but are also sometimes essential for safe and easy driving in Lanzarote.

One way hires from Avis may be possible for customers who are not returning to Lanzarote Airport, and who need to return their vehicle to another location on the island. Vehicles may be permitted to cross over to the other Canary Islands by ferry, with additional insurance, but this should first be confirmed with Avis. A one way hire from Lanzarote Airport may incur additional costs, and may also be free of charge. This will depend on the length of the car hire period and to where the vehicle will be delivered once the rental contract has expired.

Smaller cars for hire from Avis will be similar to the Ford Ka Titanium and Seat Ibiza, which seat up to five passengers, but may not have much room for luggage. They are also cars with a manual transmission; therefore ensure that you are comfortable with this type of vehicle.

What clients of car hire with say:

We flew to Lanzarote for a hiking holiday and had a great time thanks to the full size van we hired for the nine of us. The rental counter staff were ever so helpful and gave us directions to the motorway that took us to our resort.
