National Car Rental Lanzarote Airport

National Lanzarote Airport Guide Car Hire

Lanzarote Airport is located in San Bartolome, Las Palmas, on the south-eastern coastline of Lanzarote Island, which is one of Spain’s famous Canaries. The airport is also very nearby the capital city of the island, known as Arrecife, and a few kilometres from the popular holiday areas of the Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen. Over four and a half million passengers travel through Lanzarote Airport each year, and the airport’s buildings are well equipped to meet the needs of all its passengers. Lanzarote Airport car hire is available from several car rental companies, both local and international, and one of the globally known companies is National. National is a favourite choice amongst many passengers, for their low rental rates and high quality vehicles.

The airport of Lanzarote consists of two terminal buildings, one of which is newer, and is dedicated to the handling of all inter-island flights. This is Terminal 2, with arrivals and car hire facilities on the ground floor of the building. Terminal 1 handles all other fights at Lanzarote Airport, both domestic and international, and is the larger of the two terminals. Car hire companies such as National are found on the arrival level of this terminal as well. National Lanzarote Airport is open between the hours of 07:00 and 22:00, for reservations, or customers can book their vehicle in advance, over the Internet.

National is a car rental company with over fifty years of experience in the industry, and has mainly focused their services on the frequent airport business traveller. National played an important role in pioneering the corporate-account business, and also introduced the first comprehensive frequent-renter program, by the name of Emerald Club. Many customers today still enjoy the benefits of Emerald Club, which enable them to more easily make reservations, and collect and return their rented cars. Although National is well known in the sector of car hire for corporate clients, they also offer a range of vehicles suitable for families on vacations in many areas of the world. There are station wagons similar to the Citroen Picasso 1.6, ideal for customers with plenty of luggage to transport, and minivans, which offer more interior space, such as the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso 1.8. Larger vans for groups of travellers are available for up to nine people, and include the Opel Vivaro 1.6.

At National, Lanzarote Airport, smaller cars such as the Fiat Seicento 1.1 and Citroen C2 1.1 are found in the Economy category, and can be rented by anyone over the age of 21. Economy cars may be small, but they do come with some nice features, such as power steering and air bags. These cars are ideal for single drivers or couples, or even families without too much luggage to carry. When collecting your car from National, ensure that all the drivers listed on the rental agreement are present, and able to show a valid drivers license. Most local licenses are accepted, provided that they are printed in a Roman alphabet, otherwise, an International Driving Permit may be required. An IDP is recommended for all foreign drivers in Spain, as Spanish Law requires this document. Road rules in Spain, and the Canary Islands, also require all passengers within a vehicle to wear seatbelts, therefore ensure that you rent a baby seat/booster seat for your little ones.

Many of the vehicles hired by National come with a manual (stick-shift) transmission, but there are vehicles with an automatic transmission as well. The Citroen C4 1.6 is an example of such a vehicle, found in the Compact category, as well as the Citroen C5 2.0 in the Standard car category. An automatic vehicle is a better choice for customers who drive this type of vehicle at home. Cars with an automatic transmission can also be used for disabled drivers who request hand controls from Lanzarote Airport, as this device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic car. Hand controls should be booked in advance of your flight to the island, and are available free of charge. Disabled customers who are unable to drive may still be the primary renter at National, by using a designated driver with a valid drivers license. The credit card of the disabled person will be used for payment of the car hire period.

A Lanzarote Airport car rental can be arranged as a one way hire as well, which will enable the customer to collect their vehicle from this National location, but return it to another. One way hires are therefore ideal for customers who will not be coming back to the airport. Rental charges for this service will depend on the vehicle’s final destination and the length of the car hire period. Cars from National may be allowed to travel on ferries to the other Canary Islands, but this should be confirmed with National before planning your travel itinerary.

All primary renters at National should have a major credit card for payment of their car hire at Lanzarote Airport, as debit cards are often not accepted at this rental location. Major credit cards include American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa. Certain car hire companies offer their own charge cards for their customers. Further information is available from National, at Lanzarote Airport.
