Vilamoura is an area of the Algarve that is less than a 3-hour flight from the UK with regular flights from all major airports and some of the smaller ones. There are many low cost airlines operating flights including Easyjet, BMI Baby, Ryanair and Jet2.com.
Car hire is recommended and can be purchased from the UK using www.economycarhire.com or www.allinclusivecarhire.com. Parking is available outside of the apartment. Taxis are readily available and are not high cost. Bikes can also be hired and delivered to the apartment.
When bookng your flights – look out for flights with no taxes or taxes already included as these are cheaper than the advertised cheap flights that then add on the taxes etc.. and shop around, usually the earlier you book the better the deal you get – but not always!
We do not specify days that you can rent the apartment – we try to be as flexible as possible to allow you to get the best flight deal.
We do recommend car hire as it is about a 35 -40 minute walk to the nearest supermarket and 45-50 minutes to the beach.
Driving in Vilamoura and around the local area is very simple – I can do it! Car hire is of a good standard and we have tried and tested many of the car seats which are available at a small additional cost
We have found pre-booking cars online via economycarhire.com or allinclusivecarhire.com. These sites may not advertise cheap prices but they do not sting you with lots of added extras which many of the airport rental companies do!
We provide a map and driving directions from faro airport.
Not all our visitors have hired a car and have still had an excellent holiday – some like the walking! Some have hired bikes which can be delivered to the apartment – we can provide details on this.
Taxis are readily available in the area and are relatively cheap. The apartment and area is so nice that once you have stocked up on food you may prefer not to go anywhere just while away the day on the balcony or by the pool!
