Practical Information

If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone. Security can scan the e-barcode so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend leaving plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself extra time.

What to expect in Faro

Nestled in the abundantly sunny Algarve, Faro is an alluring Mediterranean haven promising over 3000 hours of sunshine a year! If it’s winter sun you are looking to escape from, then this is the place to come! Faro’s town is a slice of paradise with a laid back vibe thanks to its tranquil marina with boats bobbing up and down in turquoise waters. It is historic and beautiful to the eye while pavement cafes are wonderful for soaking up both the sun and the atmosphere. Thanks to a large student population there is no shortage of nightlife with clubs, bars and restaurants that stay lively until late. Ease a fuzzy head with a day trip to Faro’s breath-taking natural parks for walks and hikes in lush vegetation and moon-like landscapes, or perhaps a trip to a museum or theatre or a boat trip to a neighbouring island will help ease any pains.

Drinking and eating in the Algarve is very reasonable with a glass of wine costing from €1.50* to €2*, and a draft beer from €1* to €1.50*. It is worth trying the local Port as well as the wine, as the country is famous for it. Fish and seafood are the best and freshest food to eat in Faro. On average a 2-course meal for two, including house wine will cost less than €30* but there are plenty of local fast food options too. Accommodation is reasonable with family hotels, backpackers hostels and romantic luxury hotels catering for every budget. Prices will be higher in the summer so be warned.
