Alicante airport lies just 9km south east of the city and is the main arrival point for the majority of holidaymakers heading for the resorts of Spain’s Costa Blanca. Benidorm is the main resort of the region which lies about 60km along the coast from the airport. This journey usually takes about 45 minutes by road but can vary depending on traffic conditions. Check out the Alicante Airport website for specific information about the airport’s facilities.
You can pre-book Alicante airport transfers by shuttlebus to all the resorts along the Costa Blanca. Alternatively, you can just use public transport on arrival. Here are your main options:
Alicante Airport Transfers by Shuttlebus
The most convenient and best value way to get from the airport to your destination is by pre-booking a shared shuttle transfer. These services run back and to between the airport and the main resorts all day long. A vehicle and driver will be waiting for you on arrival.
You’ll get great deals on this route with Resorthoppa who offer a simple and reliable service at very low prices. It might also be worth taking a look at local operator Shuttledirect who sometimes have even cheaper transfer rates.
There are public buses from outside the arrivals area which run into Alicante city every hour for connections all along the coast. There are stops in Alicante at the central bus station and at the Costa Blanca tram stop at Puerta del Mar. There’s also an Airport to Benidorm Bus which leaves from the same place every hour on the hour from 8am to 5pm. Just look for the “Benidorm Bus” sign as you walk out of arrivals.
As you’d expect from an international airport there are loads of taxis waiting just outside the arrivals area. However, if you’re travelling to a popular resort you really should book Alicante airport transfers in advance with one of the above shuttle companies which offer much better rates than taxis.
Car Rental at Alicante airport
Many arrivals who are visiting the Costa Blanca for a week or two choose to rent a car at the airport and drive to their destination. You’ll get very good deals on Alicante Airport Car Hire from Economy Car Hire who are able to negotiate excellent best rates with local dealers then pass on some of the savings to customers in the form of very competitive and fully inclusive prices.
