Why should you use a transfer company instead of public transport?

Of course, you have the option to use public transport to get to your destination on the Costa Blanca from Alicante Airport by using tram line 3 or the bus, however, this will not be an efficient door-to-door service – unlike using a transfer company. Although it may be a cheaper option, travelling by bus or tram can be difficult with large suitcases, there may not be much room to sit down or to put your belongings and you also run the risk of possibly losing or forgetting something if you need to get a few buses or trams.

Keep in mind that you will have all of your baggage with you, you will have just spent many hours in the airport at your starting point, many hours on the plane, and then time at Alicante Airport waiting for your bags – the last thing you will want to do is then wait for the tram or bus to arrive and then possibly a taxi to take you from the stop to your accommodation! This is especially true if you are travelling with young children who will most likely be grouchy and hungry from travelling. Once you have taken those steps off of the plane, all you want to do is get to your destination, get rid of your bags and get out into that Costa Blanca sunshine!

This will also take more time to plan, since your flight arrival times may not match up with the public transport times, and what about if you are arriving late at night or very early in the morning? This is another added inconvenience and even more reason to use a trusted, quick and reliable transport company such as Artman Transfers or Beniconnect.

Why should you use a transfer company instead of a taxi?

You could consider booking a private taxi, however, these can be very costly – especially in the height of summer when companies may hike up the prices to benefit from the large demand.The prices of taxis also fluctuate depending on the time of day, for example, it is much more expensive to travel via taxi suring unsociable hours such as late at night.

For example, a taxi from Alicante Airport will cost upwards from €90, a taxi from Alicante Airport to Alicante train station will cost around €55, a taxi to Orihuela Costa will cost around €70, to Calpe will set you back around €130 and getting to Playa Flamenca will cost €70 for a family of four.

Uber does operate on the Costa Blanca, however, these prices also fluctuate depending on demand and you may have to wait around if there is not a driver available when you arrive. Therefore, it is quicker, easier and more cost-effective to book your transport through a transfer company.
