Driver requirements

What age do I need to be to hire a vehicle in Lanzarote?

Like in the rest of Spain, the minimum legal age to hire a car in Lanzarote is 18. However, many car hire companies only accept drivers aged 21 and over, and some set their minimum age higher at 23. Include your age accurately when comparing deals, and check with the provider if you're unsure.

What do I need to hire a vehicle in Lanzarote?

In Lanzarote, you must have a full driving licence to hire a car, and you'll need to have held it for at least a year (two in some cases). Most car hire providers will ask for your passport as an additional form of ID. An International Driving Permit is not required if you hold a UK licence.

Do I need car hire excess insurance in Lanzarote?

No, car hire excess insurance is not mandatory in Lanzarote. However, it is worth considering – car hire excess insurance covers you for any excess that would be applicable if you have an accident or anything happens to your hire car. Sometimes that can run to over €1,000, so this cover can give you peace of mind. You can often get a better deal by comparing standalone policies rather than accepting the one offered at the desk.

Can I rent a car with a debit card in Lanzarote?

It is possible to rent a car with a debit card in Lanzarote. Your car hire provider may ask for a refundable cash deposit and some only accept debit cards if you also buy their full insurance cover.

Which rental companies are available at Lanzarote Airport?

The following car rental companies are available at Lanzarote Airport: AutoReisen, Avis, Budget, Cabrera Medina, Cicar, Europcar, Goldcar, Hertz, InterRent, Payless and TopCar.

Is it cheaper to rent a car at the airport or off site in Lanzarote?

Picking up your car at Lanzarote Airport is the most convenient option if you're flying in – that sometimes means that it's more expensive. You can still get a good deal by comparing online wherever you want to pick up.

Can you rent a car in one city in Lanzarote and drop it off in another?

Yes, you can rent a car from one town in Lanzarote and drop it off in another. Not all car hire providers offer this option, so compare deals with your preferred locations to find one that does.

Can you rent a car the same day in Lanzarote?

Yes, you can rent a car the same day in Lanzarote – it's still possible to book online, so compare different providers to make sure you get the best deal.

Can I hire a vehicle at 21 years of age in Lanzarote?

Yes. Some car hire providers in Lanzarote have a minimum age of 23, but you should be able to find a deal if you're 21. Expect to pay a 'young driver' surcharge.
