Having your own wheels is always the best way to explore any place but some people like to take a taxi, have their own special chauffeur service and let the others do the driving while on holiday in Lanzarote. After all, they are cheap and convenient to get around.

Spotting taxis will not be difficult, as they are all over the place! Look out for white cars with a number and a green light on the roof that means it is available. Flag it down in the street or pick one up from a designated area.

Obviously the drivers use a meter to calculate the cost of the fare, although it might be a good idea to get a rough idea of the price before setting off. There will also be an additional cost for luggage, on bank holidays and after midnight.
