Can you rent a car the same day in Lanzarote?

Are there any scenic driving routes near Playa Blanca?

The south of Lanzarote is one of the most unique landscapes in the world to drive through. For a beach adventure, head east from Playa Blanca toward Los Ajaches Natural Park. There’s a small entry fee per car, but the beaches of Papagayo are well worth it. Next make your way up to Fermés with its Canarian cathedral, then on to the charming white houses of Yaiza which stick out against the black volcanic earth. From Yaiza you’re on the cusp of Timanfaya National Park, a must for any visitor to the island. You’ll want to check out the green lake of El Golfo and then conclude your scenic drive along the rugged coastline of Los Hervideros where the Atlantic Ocean crashes up against the volcanic isle.

Should I buy additional insurance for my car rental in Playa Blanca?

Car hire excess insurance is not mandatory in Lanzarote. However, car hire excess insurance does cover you in case of accident or damage which can easily cost you over €1,000. Comparing standalone policies ahead of time can ensure you get a much better deal on excess insurance than the one your rental provider will offer you at the desk.

What should I do in case of an accident or breakdown in Playa Blanca?

In the unlikely event that you’re involved in a serious accident resulting in injury, call the police on 112. Your rental car is likely to contain a warning triangle which can be placed at the site to notify other drivers. Next, notify your car rental provider and your insurance company as soon as possible.
