A taxi hired at the airport is the most expensive way to organise your transfers. Far better ( and cheaper!!) to pre- book transfers. Polotur are quoting €53 one way and €106 for the return trip for a private transfer and I can recommend them from personal experience; we've used them for the past three or four years, three or four times a year, and have found them to be reliable and friendly. You'll find them at: http://www.polotur.com/

Also try these guys who I have used in the past:

low-cost-transfers.com/faro-airport/index.php

Also see if Diskwizz is lurking on the forum anywhere. He has contacts in the Alvor area.

Hi Mark

We have a contact who charges £50 each way. It was reasonable for us because there was a group of 6 people. It's a chap with his own business in Alvor - let me know if you want any further info.

Sorry Mark - previous posting should have read 50 euro (not pounds).

haha Barlavento.... I am obviously not lurking as much as I should be lol.

We also charge 50e each way to and from Alvor. We only do private transfers tho and do not operate a "shuttle" service.

If you have any questions dont hesitate to contact me.
