Albufeira, Lagoa, Lagos and Portimao are the destinations with the most hotels, beach resorts and lively nightlife spots. For the country side and mountain lovers, Silves and Monchique have a lot to offer in terms of Algarve history and traditions.

Service details

How to find your driver

Faro airport is a relatively small airport and the process is very straightforward. As you leave the baggage claim area our driver will be standing by holding a sign with your name. If by any chance you don't find the driver, you can always reach us by using the contact numbers present in your booking voucher. We will assist you from there.
Tip: all our drivers wear a blue shirt.

Luggage policy

For your peace of mind we accept almost any type and quantity of luggage for free, including golf bags - only limited to the vehicle capacity. There is a specific step during the booking process where you can provide us with information on any non-standard luggage you will bring, just so we can be prepared. Such items include all sports equipment, pushchairs, wheelchairs, pets or other out of format luggage.

Flight delays

Do not worry. There's no need to warn us about possible delays as our drivers always monitor flights status and are constantly adjusting their scheduled services accordingly. They will still meet and greet you at the terminal if your flight exceeds the initial estimated arrival time. No extra charge is applied for the taxi waiting time resulting from flight delays.

Use of the motorway and tolls

The Algarve is crossed from east to west by the paid A22 express motorway, also known as Via do Infante, with Faro airport located more or less in the middle. The other road crossing the Algarve is the free but overall slower N-125. For those destinations where the use of the motorway is justifiable, our booking system allows the client to decide whether or not he wants the taxi to use the fastest route. If so, the correspondent toll amount is shown and added to the final price. With our service there are no surprises and you always get what you pay for.

Passenger capacity

Unlike public taxis where you only have two options - sedans up to 4 and vans up to 8 passengers, our private taxi service operates a broader range of vehicles suitable for all group sizes and luggage requirements. Apart from the standard sized taxis we also provide several large vehicles such as mini-buses and coaches to enable groups over 8 passengers to travel together on the same taxi, thus resulting in a more cost-effective transfer option.

Child safety

We provide baby seats and booster seats pre-installed in our vehicles upon request and free of charge. The Portuguese law requires that children under 12 years old and less than 1,50 m tall must be carried on appropriate safety seats. If applicable to your case, you must provide us with the number of children in the travel group and select the appropriate safety seats during the booking process.

Working hours

Our private taxi service is available all year long for 24 hours, 7 days a week. We apply the same prices on weekdays, weekends and holidays. We also do not charge any extra fees for early or late flight arrivals and departures. We work around the clock and our taxi transfers between Faro airport are always adjusted to our clients flight schedule.

Last minute bookings

Our online booking system only accepts automatic reservations at least with 8 hours in advance prior to your flight arrival. If you are arriving in less than 8 hours from now, you must send us a direct email with your flight details and your destination address. We have staff ready 24/7 to attend your last minute requests.

Passengers with disabilities

We transport passengers with reduced mobility in our taxis, provided that they are capable of boarding the vehicle independently or with the help of others in the travel group and also that they use a wheelchair of the folding type only. Passengers totally dependant on the wheelchair must travel in special adapted vehicles which can be provided if you contact us directly in advance.

Extra stops

Sometimes it might be useful to stop by the supermarket first. Or perhaps you will need to grab the accommodation keys at a far reception first. And maybe your travel group is staying in different houses in the same area. To cater for these and other scenarios we allow for extra stops in the taxi route between Faro airport and your holiday address. An extra charge may be applied and if so you will be informed of the respective amount during the booking process.

Payment options

We are flexible. You can choose to pay online in advance the total amount with a credit / debit card or a PayPal account, or pay directly in cash to the driver on the service day. Either way your taxi booking confirmation is immediate.

Amendments, cancellations & refunds

For unexpected situations, you can change or cancel your private taxi with no extra cost at any time and as many times you need. Use the provided links in the voucher sent to your email. All the process is automatic and any modifications you make will take effect immediately. For every change you submit you will automatically receive a new email with the updated information.
Refunds: any due refunds resulting from changes or cancellation are processed automatically within a maximum period of 2 weeks.
