Lanzarote is a very small island, so getting around can be fairly easy. Travelling between resorts and towns on the coast can be done by bus. The bus service is efficient and reasonably priced, costing just €1-2 for a one-way ticket. Holidaymakers need to keep in mind that this service is not frequent and the journey times are slow. With well-serviced roads, dedicated cycle paths and light traffic, Lanzarote has a large number of cyclists. Bicycles can be hired on the island for less than €20 per day. Travellers should be warned that there are large hills in town that are tricky to get over. Holidaymakers who would like to go island hopping can take a ferry from one of the two terminals in Playa Blanca and Arrecife. A trip to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura is only 20 minutes and costs around €30. The three biggest ferry companies are BinterCanarias, Islas Airways, and Lineas Fred Olsen.
