How good are bus services on Island ?

Asked by: 25th July 2011

Am travelling to Lanzarote soon :), but as there are 6 of us it is going to be expensive to hire a car, therefore am thinking of using the bus system.  We are staying in Old Town, does anybody know how good the bus services are for travelling around Island and what sort of prices?  Thanks for any help

    The buses are ok to get you from resort to resort like Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca for only a few euros each, where you will struggle is to get to the visitor centres around the island. If there are six of you, you might want to consider hiring a 7 seater like the VW Caddy van so you can get around and make the most of your holiday. One excursion on a coach tour will set you back 55 euros per adult so you can hire a car for the week for the same as one day out! I would recommend Plus Car as a reputable hire car company with no hidden costs. If you do decide to use the Arrecife buses, then ask for a bono, these discount cards come in demoninations of 12 or 22 Euros and give you discounted bus fares around the island.

    Jules think you need to check out that car hire price i just checked 7 day hire for opel zaira which is a 7 seater and the total works out at 576 euro so thats price you quoted looks way out
