Lanzarote - A Safe Destination

Life rolls on and we all need a nice break

Lanzarote is one of the areas in the world least affected by COVID-19 and this makes the island one of the safest destinations to visit, since it offers maximum conditions of safety and hygiene.

Accommodation establishments are slowly beginning to recover their activity and the main centres of tourist interest, shops and restaurants are already operating.

Re-open EU

The European Union, and all of its member states, are planning for a safe re-opening of Europe.

Re-opening the European Area

A co-ordinated approach to the restriction of free movement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic

The European Union has now set up a website along with a mobile app that provides the information you may need to travel to each European Union member state, the requirements at each destination and other information required by tourists. The website is called Re-open EU and provides travellers with the procedures they will need to follow before travelling to each of the destinations. 

The interactive tool they provide gives you all the information that you need to confidently plan your European travel and holidays, while staying healthy and safe.

The information is frequently updated and available in 24 languages for your convenience.

Before you Travel to Lanzarote

The Spanish Government has established a series of health control measures that must be followed

Since the 1st of July 2020, the Spanish Government has established a series of health control measures for anyone who wants to visit Spain including Lanzarote. Regardless of nationality or age:

  • In the days before starting your trip, you must fill out the public health form electronically on the website spth.gob.es (available in ES/EN/DE and FR), in order to obtain a personal QR code to be shown at the airport of origin (either printed or on your mobile device).
  • On arrival at the airport, your temperature will be taken and if it exceeds 37,5 °C you will be subject to a health assessment.

 

IN AIRPORTS AND DURING YOUR FLIGHT

In airports and during the entire flight, you must wear your mask, obligatorily and at all times, and follow all the security measures indicated for your own safety and that of all those around you.

We recommend that you check in online, although you should bear in mind that many airlines no longer allow you to carry hand luggage in the cabin, except for a personal bag that fits under your seat.

  What should I know before arriving on the island?

During your visit to the island, there are a series of measures that you should know about and strictly respect, for your own health and the health of all of us who live in a unique space like Lanzarote.

Measures that are generally applied

  • Social distancing: the interpersonal distance is set at 1.5 metres.

    • Seating is regulated to maintain social distancing.

Holiday Protection

Pandemic Virus: Book with Confidence…….
On all new bookings made from 1st August 2021 the following applies, if the FCDO or your government advises you not to travel, or the 
Island status becomes ” advise against all but essential travel to Lanzarote due to a virus outbreak or lockdown”, you will be offered alternative 
dates in the same villa, or a refund of your final balance. Your booking deposit will be used against a future booking (within 2 years). If the 
decision to cancel is not due to official restrictions, but recommendations not to travel or other personal reasons this will be treated as a 
normal cancellation and therefore subject to our cancellation policy.
