Faro Airport Mini Guide

The only airport convenient for holidays on the Algarve.  Flight time is around two and three quarter hours from the UK.
For those that want the flexibility of a hire car on their holidays, the airport has several rental companies represented there but pre-booking is recommended, especially in high season. The car rental desks are to the right of the tour operators’ desks as you pass through customs. If travelling as a group it’s often a good idea to send the driver through to collect the car whilst others wait for the luggage. Outside the airport, the toll road A22 motorway is easily accessibly making the onward journey quick and simple. Please check your rental terms and conditions for toll charges and payment methods or contact us for further information.
