Travel Information

How to get to the Algarve:

Due to its peripheral location, the Algarve enjoys good transport connections, both internally with the other Portuguese cities and externally with the rest of the world. Various national airlines have regular flights to the Algarve, making Faro a busy international airport. Vilamoura which will host SDF17 is a 20 minute transfer from the Airport.

If you require airport transfer assistance from/to either Faro Airport or Lisbon Airport please email a member of our local destination team - Cristina Eusébio from the Portugal Travel Team who will be able to assist you with timings and prices for your transfer as well as sending you a booking form and taking payment in advance.

*Please note if you are travelling with colleagues its always more economical to book group transfers.

Please email Cristina on for more information.

Details on Faro Airport can be found .. here ..

Alternatively, if you prefer to explore Lisbon first, the capital city of Portugal and then arrive in Vilamoura for SDF17 then there are trains running frequently from Lisbon and it is a smooth 3 hour journey at a very good price. We highly recommend you check out the city during your time in Portugal if you have never been!

The Algarve also benefits from a good road network, composed of motorways and trunk roads making journeys comfortable and efficient whether you're travelling by bus or driving in a rented car.

Rail transport is another alternative for visitors to the region. The Portuguese rail service (CP - Comboios de Portugal) has a vast network of trains to places all over the country.
