Directions from Faro Airport

The following are instructions on how to get to us from Faro Airport.

Since 2012, there has been a toll charge for use of the Motorway A22.  Unfortunately you do not pay when you use the motorway. You have to use it first and pay later- usually by credit card. The car hire company will charge you the Motorway costs through your credit card. They should have a reader ( transponder) attached to the car which reads how many kilometers you have clocked up. Please check with your car hire company when you pick up the car .

The alternative is to use the N125, which can be slower (an extra 15 minutes) depending on local traffic.

We have provided instructions for both routes
