Costa Teguise is a resort town on the eastern coast of Lanzarote, in the Spanish Canary Islands. It’s a great place from which to explore this side of the island, visiting all the little coves and interesting tourist spots that aren’t as busy as the main resort areas in the town. This makes car hire in Costa Teguise a very convenient choice to make, as it will afford you the freedom to do this at will. The most popular beach here is Playa Del Jablillo so if that’s what you’re after, make it your first stop. For a quieter day at the seaside, drive a little further south to Playa El Ancla. By crossing a short causeway by car you can reach Castillo de San Gabriel, a 16th-century fort built on its own tiny island.
The main airport serving the town is César Manrique-Lanzarote Airport, which is a mere 15min or so away. You will be able to collect your Costa Teguise car hire right here within a few minutes of collecting your luggage and passing through customs. You’ll find them very easily as you walk out into the arrivals hall, directly opposite you, close to the terminal building exit. It’s then just a matter of walking across the road outside the terminal, entering the car park and heading for the hire car area. This won’t take longer than about a minute.
Costa Teguise is the quieter of the two resort towns in this part of Lanzarote, the other being Playa Blanca. So you won’t have to worry much about traffic when you’re driving around the town. Pedestrians will be your main concern, so make sure that you stick below the relatively low speed limit and keep your eyes open for them at all times. This goes especially for tourists who don’t know the town and can unexpectedly wander out into the roads.
You also won’t have to worry about anything resembling a rush hour, as there usually isn’t enough traffic on the roads to warrant that. This makes the driving experience very consistent throughout the day. It’s the kind of place that lends itself to sightseeing from a car, precisely because you don’t need to be as constantly alert for other traffic as you normally would be in a UK town. It’s also a small town to drive around, so you won’t find yourself spending much on petrol while you’re on holiday there either.

If you’re intending to only hang out at the beach resorts, restaurants and bars, then a saloon will work well too.
