But with so many deals and so many choices of transfer on offer, how do you know which one works best for you and your holiday in Faro? Start by having a look at the table below, so you can discover all you need to know about each transfer type we can offer.

Faro Airport Transfer Options

Shared Shuttle Transfers

Shared Shuttle

Our shared shuttles from Faro Airport can get you to popular hotels and resorts both in Faro itself, as well as to popular destinations across the Algarve for the best price available. Also sometimes referred to as a shared shuttle, with this service, you will join other travellers when you get through to Arrivals, in a large, comfortable vehicle that will make stops en route to your accommodation.

Speedy Shared Shuttle Transfers

Speedy Shared Shuttle

Purple Parking's speedy shuttle transfers work just like our normal shuttle service as described above, whereby you will make several stops in a larger vehicle you share with other travellers, boarding at the terminal at Faro Airport. However, our speedy shuttle transfers will make fewer stops, which means you get to your hotel or resort a lot faster. This is the perfect option for those who want to enjoy the best balance of convenience and shorter journey times.

Private Transfers

Private Transfer

Our private transfers are very similar to catching a public taxi at the terminal, in that you travel in one vehicle that is completely private for the use of you and your group. However, the difference by pre-booking your car, is that you guarantee there will be a vehicle ready and waiting for you when you land. So all that's left for you to do once you've landed and grabbed your luggage, is find your waiting driver, hop into your car, and set off when you're ready.

Luxury Transfers

Luxury Transfer

Think of it as a luxury taxi transfer, with the simplicity of a private car and the extra special touch of something a little more luxurious to kickstart your trip in the Algarve. Our executive transfers are the perfect option for you. Offering everything you get from our standard private transfers, but with an uber-classy brand vehicle collecting you from the terminal, this is perfect for those wanting to treat themselves to a special start to their holiday in the sunshine.

Private Minibus Transfer

Private minibus transfers

If you're travelling in a group of friends or family that can't fit into one taxi, and you don't want to share a shuttle with others, you probably still want to stick together rather than getting split up across multiple vehicles and potentially lose track of eachother. When you book your own private minibus for your journey to your hotel you can do just that. You'll be transported together in a minibus you'll have all to yourselves.

Wheelchair Adapted Transfers

Wheelchair adapted Transfer

If anyone you're booking for uses a wheelchair and you need an adapted vehicle for your trip from Faro Airport, then you can organise one easily with us here at Purple Parking. A wheelchair transfer offers a fuss-free journey to your destination, and includes a driver who will be able to provide whatever assistance you may need from start to finish, so you don't have to worry about a thing on the day. Also, You pay for everything upfront when you book, so you won't have to worry about watching the metre ticking up!

Coach Transfers

Coach Transfer

If you are travelling in a group that's too big even for a minibus, then we can also offer private coach transfers from Faro Airport to hotels across the city and resorts even further afield. Able to transport very large group sizes, including wedding parties and school trips, our coaches also come with onboard representatives who will be available throughout the transfer to ensure your experience runs as smoothly as possible, and everyone is able to enjoy the last part of their long journey.
