While getting a dose of vitamin D is the main reason UK travellers book cheap flights to Lanzarote, this rocky Canary Island has more to offer than lying on the beach. There’s National Parks that can be explored by camel, excursions into the volcanic landscape, cycling routes to test your stamina and vineyards to while away an afternoon. There’s no bad time to visit Lanzarote, you can be guaranteed warm temperatures (between 21C to 29C) and hardly any rain throughout the year. Two periods when the island gets busier are November to April, when families search for cheap flights to Lanzarote to escape the UK winter and July / August for the summer school holidays. If you’re thinking of travelling to Lanzarote during February or March, check the dates of the island’s Carnival which change every year. This colourful festival is one of the main events of the cultural calendar and booking flight tickets and accommodation well ahead of time is advised.
Lanzarote doesn’t really have an off season as the sun shines here all year round. Good weather is pretty much guaranteed if you’re looking for deals on flight tickets. Although winter is a peak season it can get cool at night and many people prefer to swim during the warmer months.
When is the best time to book a flight to Lanzarote?
The best time to book flights to Lanzarote is May and June or September and October. These months signal the best weather on the island, though July and August are hotter they can also be quite windy. You can also find lower priced flight tickets and hotels in the shoulder seasons. The cheapest flights to Lanzarote are generally in April and May at the end of the winter season and before the summer tourist season kicks off. If you plan on being in or on the water for most of your holiday then visit in autumn. The beaches won’t be crowded and the water will be warmer than summer.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Bus or taxi are the two main options for public transport. Taxis are located outside Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 where you’ll also find the bus stop. This runs Monday to Friday every 25 minutes. Hiring a rental car from the airport is recommended for an independent means of exploring the island.
