- As a tourist, you are required to carry your passport in your rental car at all times. The island authorities are sticklers for detail and liberal with dishing out tourist fines, so remember to tuck your passport in the glovebox before heading off on a road trip.
- Fiddling about with anything electronic, even a GPS, is strictly forbidden while you’re in the driving seat, even when stationary. Using a mobile phone on the move is a big mistake that will stick you with a huge on-the-spot fine, so make sure you’re parked up safely before checking your Whatsapp. The alternative just isn’t worth it.
- Getting behind the wheel in flip-flops or any other unsuitable driving footwear is illegal in Lanzarote, something that’s far too easy to forget on a sun-drenched island where shoes feel surplus to requirement. The local police rarely turn a blind eye to innocent tourist offences, so clad your feet in sensible shoes or risk getting slapped with a hefty fine.
