The closest airport is Faro which is just about an hour drive to Praia da Luz along the new motorway which extends from Faro to beyond Lagos. Faro is well served by scheduled and charter airlines, including
Alternatively flights can also be taken to Lisbon airport which is approximately 3 hours drive away, again mainly on motorway. At peak holiday times, particularly if booking late, Lisbon can sometimes produce significantly cheaper flights.
CONTACT US if you want further help or advice on flights.
Car hire can be booked for collection at Faro or Lisbon airport.
We act as agents for an excellent Algarve car hire firm which is reliable and rents cars at very reasonable prices.
They give guests a very good service-we use them ourselves and have received positive feedback from our guests on their service.
They offer the benefit of having the car that you have ordered ready for you to collect at the airport itself and not at an off airport depot a mini-bus ride away as with many other car-hire firms locally.
Likewise at the end of the holiday you return the car to the airport car-park.
They also do not require any payment until you collect the car-I order it for you and they send you an email confirmation AND they don't charge any extra fee to add additional drivers.
CONTACT ME for a their price list.
Alternatively we can help by booking taxi transport from and back to Faro airport.
