Tourist Prices For Lanzarote

Lanzarote has done well in a comparison complied by the website vaciones-españ

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!


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.
