Why Travel by Private Shuttle?
The benefits of hiring a private airport transfer service are considerable and should not be underestimated, particularly for holiday travellers keen to find a stress-free travel solution.
Convenience: No need to familiarise yourself with the public transport system or queue for individual taxis at the airport. A private transfer will take you straight from Faro Airport to your destination and back. As it is all booked in advance, you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Value for money: Transfers can prove to be better value for money than individual taxis, especially if there is a large group of people travelling together. Airport transfers can be arranged for groups of any size.
Extra assistance: Private transfers are a particularly attractive travel solution for disabled passengers or those with mobility restrictions, as well as for families with babies or dogs who might need additional personal assistance.
Bulky luggage: For travellers carrying bulky or non-standard luggage items, the extra space and security offered by a private transfer vehicle could be especially appealing. This includes: golf equipment, surfboards and other sports kit, prams, pushchairs, wheelchairs and musical instruments.
