A Rhinocarhire Guide to Car Hire Faro Airport 

Faro Airport is the only airport convenient for holidays on the Algarve with a flight time of around two and three quarter hours from the UK. Here's some information about driving to and from Faro Airport, road signs, congestion, and distances to main resorts:

Road Signs: The road signs in the Algarve region, where Faro Airport is located, are typically clear and well-maintained. Signage is in both Portuguese and English, making it easier for international travelers to navigate the area.

Congestion: Faro Airport can experience varying levels of congestion depending on the time of year and the influx of tourists. During the peak tourist season (typically summer), the roads around the airport and leading to popular resorts can be busier. It's advisable to plan your trip with some extra time if you are traveling during peak times.

Distance to Main Resorts: Faro Airport is centrally located in the Algarve region, which is known for its beautiful beaches and resorts. The distance to the main resorts from Faro Airport varies:

Albufeira: Approximately 40 kilometers (about 25 miles) west of Faro Airport.
Vilamoura: Approximately 25 kilometers (about 15.5 miles) west of Faro Airport.
Lagos: Approximately 90 kilometers (about 56 miles) west of Faro Airport.
Faro: The city of Faro itself is only about 7 kilometers (about 4.3 miles) from the airport.
These distances are approximate, and the actual travel time may vary based on traffic conditions and the specific location within each resort town.

Toll Roads: There are toll roads in Portugal, including some highways that connect to Faro Airport. It's important to be aware of the toll system and how it works when driving in Portugal:
  1. Electronic Toll Roads: Many highways in Portugal have electronic tolls, which means there are no physical toll booths where you can pay with cash. Instead, tolls are collected electronically, and you'll need to have a method of payment set up.

  2. Toll Payment Methods: To pay tolls on electronic toll roads, you can use one of the following methods:

    • Via Verde Transponder: This is a device that you can attach to your car's windshield, and it automatically deducts toll charges as you pass through the toll gantries. This method is convenient if you plan to use toll roads frequently.
    • Toll Service Providers: Some car rental companies in Portugal offer toll service packages. They provide the transponder and handle toll payments for you, often with a daily fee.
    •  
  3. Unmarked Roads: If you want to avoid tolls altogether, you can choose to drive on secondary, unmarked roads instead of the main highways. These roads are generally free to use, but they may be slower and less convenient for long-distance travel.

  4. Toll Road Signs: Toll road entrances are marked with signs indicating that they are tolled roads. Pay attention to these signs and choose your route accordingly.

  5. Online Payment: If you use a toll road without a transponder or a toll service package, you must pay the toll online within a specified timeframe after using the road. Failure to do so may result in fines.

It's advisable to check when you when you collect the car at the airport about toll payment options and how to navigate toll roads if you plan to drive in Portugal. Additionally, you can visit the official website of the Portuguese toll system (known as "Portagens") for more information and to pay tolls online if needed.Overall, driving to and from Faro Airport is a convenient way to explore the Algarve region of Portugal and its beautiful coastal towns and resorts. Just be prepared for some variations in traffic levels, especially during the peak tourist season.
