Re: Ferry to Fuerteventura

Just back from Lanza and did the ferry to Fuerteventura. Went on the Fred Olsen there for just over 14 Euro and the slower (25 mins, instead of about 12) one back for just over 11 Euro. Apparently the trick is NOT to book a return ticket as this restricts your return date/time.
As previous person said, ferry practically empty, but this was in Feb. Did seem to be quite a few vehicles on though, including delivery trucks, etc so if have a vehicle, maybe need to book.
We were told (by the rep) that if you hire a car on Lanza, you are NOT insured to drive it on Fuerte, so need to re-hire over there.
There were LOADS of hire companies around in Playa Blanca. Did not try any so cannot recommend I am afraid. Needless to say, Airtours were pushing Avis.
