Other transfer providers require a minimum of 48 hours notice to make an online booking. This is due to the logistics required to arrange passenger pick-ups and ensure drivers and vehicles are where they need to be. We recommend that you book well in advance before arrival whenver possible.
I AM ARRIVING TODAY - WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS? EXPRESS (ALSA) BUS!
If you are arriving today there are 13 daily nonstop ALSA buses between Alicante airport and the center of Benidom. You can buy a ticket online for these even for travel today!
BABY SEATS / INFANT SEATS / BOOSTER SEATS / CHILD RESTRAINTS:
Due to the large number of diferent systems, suppliers do not carry all types for all children. We recommend you bring your own baby or booster seats or child restraint system for children or infants. You will be expected to fit these to the seat yourself. Some suppliers offer baby/child seats as an extra when booking (not booster seats). Certain types of transfers such as coaches and minibuses cannot fit baby/infant/booster seats.
CHILDREN IN VEHICLES: THE LAW IN SPAIN (vehicles up to 9 seats)
Infants and children travelling in a vehicle that has a maximum passenger capacity of up to 9 seats (8 passengers + driver), MUST, by law, travel in an infant/baby/child seat, in a rear seat.
Any failure on behalf of the passengers to comply with this law will mean the driver MUST refuse travel. It is up to the passengers NOT the driver of a taxi or transfer vehicle to provide appropriate safety seats for children. The only exception if for urban travel in Taxis within a city or town. Travel from Alicante Airport is not considered urban. www.boe.es/diario_boe/txt.php?id=BOE-A-2015-8047
HOW DO I MEET THE DRIVER OR FIND MY COACH?
If you have booked a private taxi or private mini-bus the driver will be waiting in the arrivals hall, with a sign with your name or the name of the company providing your transfer. Details of this will be on your confirmation voucher. Some companies may request you to go to the shuttle transfer desks below arrivals. Please check meeting instructions carefully once received as these may differ with each supplier.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANNOT FIND MY DRIVER?
In the unlikely event that you cannot locate your driver. Call the 24/7 emergency telephone number provided in your confirmation Email/voucher. They will resolve any problems quickly. You will also find representatives of all companies we partner with at level -2 below arrivals.
HOW LONG DOES A SHARED TRANSFER TAKE?
You may have to wait at the airport or when you are picked up as shared shuttles run to a regular schedule. You may also have to wait for other passengers on the same and other flights to collect their luggage and make their way to the transfer departure area. This is usually about 30 minutes, but may be up to one hour.
Once you depart the airport the average journey time to Benidorm is 55 minutes, Albir 65 minutes and Altea 75 minutes. Depending on the type of shuttle (economy or express) and time of day there may also be several drop-off points in resort before reaching your hotel. Average time from boarding to arriving at your hotel is 90 minutes. We recommend the EXPRESS SHUTTLE.
HOW DO I CONFRM MY RETURN PICK_UP TIME BACK TO THE AIRPORT?
If you have booked a shared transfer the details of how to confirm your pick-up time in resort will be detailed on your voucher received by Email when you made the booking. Please read these carefully.
Some companies require you to confirm online 24 hours before departure, some will send a text to your mobile phone number or Email with the place and time of pick-up. There are also always 24/7 English speaking customer service numbers. Pick-up locations for shared transfers are usually from pre-defined location near you hotel, you may need to walk a short distance.
