During the Festival: Car Sharing Groups

Please note: You will be responsible for your own transportation on the island, which means you need to take part in our car sharing system. The hostel is in the country ouside of Lajares. The studio is about 10 km away in Corralejo and we will be visiting various sites all over the island. In order to be on time for workshops, jams, etc and in order to be able to enjoy the island fully – you need a car!
Busses, scooters and bikes are not efficiently available and will not work for our community on this island.

This is how it works: We will ALL commit to one car group to share the costs. For efficiency, especially during camp time, we can switch around taking lifts with different people going at different times to different places, as needed. This only works peacefully if everyone takes part and works together.

You can either rent a car (and share the costs within your group) OR you can join a car group and pay your share.
To coordinate this we have a doodle group available. Your can post that you are renting a car and looking for people to join or if you are looking for a place in a car you can use this to find one. You can also see how long people are staying and find the ones who are staying around the same time like you.

To find a cheap rental car these sites might be helpful:
http://www.rentalcars.com/
or (German)
http://www.check24.de/mietwagen/vergleichen/
We suggest getting a good insurance policy for the car. With a group car this is safest. 
You can also call the car rental site for free for questions and advice. See links above for telephone numbers.

A car will be about 60-140€/week (so if you share a car with 5 people it will be about € 20/ week or less plus gas). Of course you can have our own car.

Unfortunately, we can not make exceptions concerning the car sharing system. Everyone has to be organized into the car sharing system.

Airport Transportation:

The best would be if you coordinate with your car group to be picked up at the airport.

If you are the first one of your car sharing group arriving at the airport, you can be the one who picks up the car.
Consider beforehand who will be officially driving the car. It makes sense to choose a car rental company, where two people will be on the rental contract marked as drivers for free. In order to be marked as drivers, the driving licenses need to be present when signing the contract. Drivers can also be put into the contract later. If you want more than two drivers you may have to pay around € 10/driver extra. Check this before booking! It might differ from contract to contract!

 

Travelling by Car
There is no official address. But don’t panic, you will find it! On the street
from Lajares to Corralejo FV-109 (about 1-2 km outside of Lajares) there will be a big sign on your right hand side: Albergue el Cohombrillo (if you arrive in the dark take care not to miss it).
Take a right onto the dirt road. It is the path to the house, which is the se
cond house you will find.

Travelling by Bus
You can also take the busfrom the airport.
For the bus schedule please check:  http://www.fuerteventura.com/Ferry/index.shtml

Take the bus from the airport to Puerto de Rosario.
From there you can take number 07 PUERTO DEL ROSARIO - EL COTILLO, or number 06 PUERTO DEL ROSARIO - CORRALEJO and then on the next line number 08 CORRALEJO - EL COTILLO (the one going through Corralejo will take much longer!). On both routes you have to get out in Lajares or ask the bus driver if he can let you out on the road to Albergue el Cohombrillo (only some bus drivers know the place). From Lajares you can walk (1-2km), take a cab, or ask to be picked up.
