Hotels Lanzarote: Enjoy your stay in a cheap hotel

Discover Arrecife

On Lanzarote (Canary Islands) you can discover the beauties of an amazing volcanic location, which was also declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993. There are thirteen Protected Natural Areas here, the most important and most extensive is Timanfaya National Park – if you have time, pay a visit these places so special on the island from your cheap hotel. If you need the best prices for car rental companies, you can compare the offers here on, and find the suitable low cost flight tickets as well.

Lanzarote has also become an example in the world for natural architecture - how tradition and modernity can appear together. Cesar Manrique, Lanzarote's most known artist, left his fingerprint almost everywhere; one of his best creations being 'Jameos del Agua', a labyrinth of caves and volcanic tubes, a perfect area for leisure and culture. Here you can listen to live music or dance in a really spectacular setting, before returning to your comfortable, cheap hotel room.

The island's beaches will equally captivate you with crystal-clear turquoise waters and lustrous white sand. On some beaches you will find dark volcanic sand; some areas are calm and relaxing while others are ideal for sports such as surfing or windsurfing. The volcanic forms make a home to an interesting and colourful marine fauna, which is the divers’ favourite.

On Lanzarote, you will certainly spend a unique holiday with exciting night programs, fishing or playing golf next to the sea, a fabulous cuisine and many cultural centres that are very close to some cheap hotels.

Some things to take care of when planning your trip

To have a holiday without setbacks, it helps a lot to take into consideration what simple measurements can be done that would save you many bad shots.
First of all, always check your documents that will be requested at the entrance of your destination country, consult the competent government agency, and even if you do not leave the country, keep in mind that it is obligatory to carry along your identification papers. Moreover, many accommodations request documents at registration. You may also want to rent a car, so you'll have to take your driver's license with you (get informed about the international driving license, too). Do not forget your travel insurance, your health insurance card (we strongly recommend you to take your health card). There are some countries where a visa is required to be allowed to enter the country at all. But do not worry, in most countries you can enter and stay without visas or special permits for some months (usually 90 days).
A good tactic is to photocopy important documents you might need, so in case they get lost or stolen, it will be really useful. Furthermore, it is also a good idea to carry along two extra passport photos.

Thanks to the Schengen agreement, one can freely cross the borders of ‘Schengen countries’, so EU travellers travelling within this area won’t be asked to identify themselves. Even so, you should always carry along identity documents, because police might ask for identity checks, any time. The following countries form part of the Schengen Agreement:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iceland (non-EU), Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway (non-EU), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland (non-EU).
EU countries that do not belong to this agreement are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, UK and Romania. Citizens outside the EU will need to apply for visas and documents to enter the Schengen area. The maximum length of stay for travellers is 3 months.
Bear in mind that some documents and visas are not that easy to get, one has to wait for them. Therefore it is recommended that you plan the travel and learn about these documents well in advance.

In addition to paperwork, when travelling within or outside the borders of the EU or the Schengen area, don’t forget to be informed of the required or recommended vaccinations in certain countries. If you know exactly the health care situation of the country which you plan to travel to, you can avoid many unpleasant surprises.
Again, please note that some vaccines require more than one dose, sometimes with large temporary spaces between them, so it is advisable to act well in advance. Be cautious with consuming food, especially fruits, and for your security, drink bottled water only.
Also, the maximum weight of your luggage is usually around 20 kilos –depending on the airline-, so it might be a good idea to make a list of most necessary things before packing your suitcase. Your passport (and anything fragile) is best to be guarded in your hand luggage that you bring along into the cabin.
Note that you can’t have scissors (or any kind of cutting or stabbing tools) with you, nor liquids of any kind (water, tee, juices and all types of cosmetics), or at least only a small amount.

Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that your luggage gets lost. In this case it might be helpful to have some clothes with you in your hand bag, until your luggage is found.
