The majority of holiday destinations in the Algarve lie outside the Faro area, more than 20km from Faro Airport – for example, Vilamoura (25Km), Albufeira (40Km), Carvoeiro (62Km), Portimão (70Km), Alvor (75Km) and Lagos (90Km), so transport is needed.
For those not needing a hire car for their holiday, or for residents not willing to leave a vehicle parked at Faro Airport when travelling outside the country, private transfers provided by local companies such as Algarserra represent the best transport option when compared to public buses or the traditional taxi service.
Faster, more comfortable than public buses
Unlike the public bus service, with a private transfer you have a door-to-door service. You will be picked-up from the airport Arrivals area or from your accommodation. No waiting time, no queues, no stops along the way and no waiting around for bus connections to reach your final destination.
Free yourself from bus schedules and from the need to go first from the airport to the Faro bus depot before heading back past the airport to most holiday destinations.
To get to or from the airport by bus, wherever you start from you will need to go via Faro’s bus depot - hardly ideal.
You might save some money by bus but when heading to the airport, there will be the worry that the bus service won’t get you there on time.
The comfort and speed of a private transfer service is well worth the extra, and it is not expensive.
Cheaper than normal taxis
When compared to regular public taxis, private transfers not only are cheaper to most destinations but customers are able to select the type of vehicle they want.
Then there’s the certainty that the driver will be waiting for a party at the specified time and location so there’s no hanging around in taxi ranks waiting for one to show up.
For private hire, just pre-book the service, preferably 24h beforehand and the driver will be there.
Another plus for the private transfer service relates to passenger capacity, luggage and children safety.
Normal taxis can transport only up to 8 passengers and those bigger cabs often seem to be unavailable whenever you need them.
Companies such as Algarserra transfers always have a wide range of vehicles available capable of dealing with passenger groups of all sizes.
A regular taxi service applies an extra charge for the use of the vehicle boot, while using a private hire your luggage already is included in the price. The amount of luggage is limited only by the size of vehicle you have chosen.
If you have special luggage needs, the transfer service is definitely the best choice.
Finally, when it comes to child safety, taxis do not always have the legally correct seat restraint seats available.
When you book a Faro airport transfer service just say beforehand that you will be travelling with children and the correct seats will have been installed.
