Lanzarote has done well in a comparison complied by the website vaciones-españa.es.

They looked at the top 15 tourist destinations and produced figures to show the cost of various items. All the data is in Spanish, so below the image, you’ll find a translation and the methodology where applicable.

Autobus refers to a single journey bus ticket  – Lanzarote is the cheapest of all.

Taxi refers to a single journey of an average distance for 4 people – Lanzarote is the second cheapest behind Ibiza.

Coche de alquiler is the average price for car hire for a week – Lanzarote comes third, but we think the figures are wrong – we can certainly arrange car hire cheaper than that for you!

Actividades is the average cost of the price of entry to theme parks and adventure areas – again Lanzarote is third.

Comer Fuera is an average of the cost of eating out a meal for two with wine – Lanzarote scores poorly in 12th place.

Compras is the aggregated cost of various items –  a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs and a litre of milk. Lanzarote is the cheapest of all!

Overall

It’s a win for Lanzarote! Our island is the least expensive overall in this survey, followed by Gran Canaria and Tenerife. The Costa Dorada area comes out as the most expensive.
