There are two very good reasons why you should rent a car in Fuerteventura in 2024.

Firstly, you won’t be tied down to rigid bus timetables, which means you can go where you please, when you please and stop to take as many selfies as you like along the way too. Secondly, driving opens up Fuerteventura’s weird and wonderful inland scenery.

The island’s roads lead past scorched, rust-orange expanses, desolate lava fields and hulking craters, as well as to turn-back-the-clock towns that sit undisturbed on mountain slopes.

The icing on the cake? Driving in Fuerteventura is about as easy as it gets. It is one of those rare places where traffic remains almost non-existent. Plus, the roads are long, flat and well maintained.

It's not obligatory to have car hire excess insurance in Fuerteventura, but if you don't get it then you risk having to pay a considerable excess if anything happens to your hire car – say, if you have an accident.
