When you land at Faro Airport, why not waltz past the queues for taxis and public transport and hop into your pre-booked airport transfer?

It’s not guaranteed to be the cheapest way to reach your accommodation, but it’s certainly the most relaxing, the speediest and the most stylish. Life’s too short to waste time when you’re on holiday – although a little time spent finding a bargain airport transfer before you jet off to Faro can pay off by the shedload!

Arriving in Faro is far less stressful when your transport to and from Faro Airport has already been taken care of. And bear in mind that although airport transfers can be somewhat pricier than public transport, the more people you share your transfer with, the cheaper it becomes. Added bonus: pre-booking your airport transfer rather than waiting for the next available taxi from the airport means the price has already been nailed down, so there are no nasty surprises when you arrive at your accommodation.

A pre-booked private taxi from Faro Airport could deliver you to the door of your accommodation in the centre of Faro in around 15 minutes – that’s significantly quicker than public transport, even when you don’t include time spent queuing for the bus. But Faro airport transfers really come into their own when you’re travelling a little further afield to the resorts strung along the Algarve.

For example, while the bus ride from Faro Airport to Albufeira costs less than €10 per person, it takes about one and a half hours and can include an irritating change in Faro. A private taxi can do the journey in less than half that time, making the extra cost well worth it – especially when you nab one of the cheap airport transfer deals to and from Faro Airport available on TravelSupermarket.

Travelling from Faro Airport to Praia da Luz by public transport involves a lengthy journey with multiple changes, but a private transfer takes less than one and half hours door to door. Expect shared shuttles to take a little longer, depending on how many other drop-offs are planned on route, but to be more budget friendly and just as convenient.

Travel agencies and operators operate a variety of transfer services to and from Faro Airport, including private transfer, shared shuttle, minibus and coach. Pre-book to get the cheapest airport transfers, and save yourself the stress of figuring out the public transport when you arrive at Faro Airport – you don’t need that kind of hassle when you go on holiday!
