TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN

Rules for travelling in a taxi - Children are permitted to travel in the rear of a taxi without a child seat as long as the taxi is only driving around urban areas, so driving from the airport a child seat would be required, you can order these when booking your transfer.

In a vehicle with more than 9 seats - If a vehicle has more than 9 passenger seats the driver is required to inform those travelling that it is a legal requirement to fasten your seat belt. Child seats are not normally required as they do not fit on the coach seats with over the lap seat belts.

When booking your transfers quite often it will ask for the ages of the children or if there is no separate box use the "Special Requirements" box normally available to state childrens ages.

IMPORTANT - DO NOT USE AN UN-LICENCED, UN-REGISTERED COMPANY

BIG cut down on Illegal Pirate Taxis

Police forces across the Costa’s are increasing the number of cars being stopped leaving the Airports. Many unlicensed operators are using the Costa Blanca ( Alicante worst hit) as a way to make fast cash and exposing you (the customer) to unnecessary risks.

Why Pay €50 for an illegal Transfer with risk of been fined & dumped at the road side & missing your flights (if return leg)

PLEASE READ THIS ITS NOT WORTH IT.

The laws for all taxi/private hire companies in Spain are extremely strict. Please be aware that there are numerous illegal companies with websites and advertising on Facebook as legitimate taxi/transfer businesses.There are also apartment owners & letting agencies offering cheap transfers, these are also illegal.

Alicante Airport, Pirates In Arrivals?

Alicante Airport strictly controls the arrivals area to weed out illegal transport pirates. Only legal companies are permitted into the airport arrivals area. Your driver will be visibly holding an AENA card which will have the name of the lead passenger on. This is a mandatory procedure highlighted by AENA, which is the Spain’s Airport Governing body. As the article opposite highlights, Spanish police have begun clamping down on illegal transport companies so please don’t fall into this trap. Vehicles will now regularly checked for Tarjeta de Transporte and if your driver can not produce this documentation, the vehicle will be impounded, you will be out of pocket and could receive a fine for allowing your self to be carried in an uninsured vehicle, We come across this story all too frequently so please avoid this horror story and book with a professional licensed company such as the ones listed above.

Alicante Airport is patrolled continuously by the Guardia Civil (Police) & government inspectors looking for illegal touts. If a transfer company asks to meet you anywhere apart from the designated area in the arrivals terminal, they will be illegal, (even if they use the excuse that this is due to building work), their vehicles will also not be insured for passenger liability cover. You should remember that if stopped by the Guardia Civil (Police) the vehicle would be confiscated immediately leaving you stranded. A vehicle that is licensed will be SP (ServicioPublico) plated by the Spanish.

Remember:
1. Without a permit, it is illegal to offer a taxi service in Spain. If in doubt before booking ask to see the companies - Tourist number which is required for shuttle services and also Agencia de Viajes Mayorista / Minorista (Travel agency number) both of these should be readily available, if in doubt do not book.

2. Insurance is another important factor as you cannot obtain cover for the transportation of passengers without a legal permit.
If they say they paid or if the owner or Villa’s give free transport, This is still illegal.

3. Without the necessary insurance cover a passenger is also running the risk in the case of an accident as they could not hope to be compensated or have Hospital bills paid for,

4. Any unfortunate passengers caught up in the process can find themselves dumped on the road with their luggage if the police stop and seize the vehicle along with a €300 Fine.

2 BUS SERVICE - PLEASE NOTE SERVICES MAY BE RESTRICTED DUE TO COVID 19

ALSA BUS - This does not run 24/7 the last bus leaves the airport at 23.00 (times change for summer). 9.45€ one way 17.95€ return, there are only 2 drop off points the Bus Station (45 minutes) and El Centro at the bottom of the Avenida Europa (55 minutes), you would then have to walk or take a further taxi to your destination. Tickets can be purchased at Self services ticket machines,, laCaixa cashpoint machines, ALSA sales points - On board the bus, on line.to find Alsa bus - exit the airport on level 2. Turn right and walk to the end of all the bus stops.The bus is NOT numbered but clearly states BENIDORM on the front.  Timetable HERE

3 STANDARD TAXI

There are always plenty of taxis at the airport, as you the exit the terminal you will find a Taxi stop.  A taxi that will take about 45 minutes into Benidorm. A standard legal registered taxi will cost between 75-93€ depending upon the time of the day/night, ask the driver to confirm the price before departing.  Details HERE

4 CAR HIRE

If you prefer to  have a vehicle for the duration of your stay, you can rent a car to get from the airport to Benidorm and then you will have independence to go where and when you wish, it also gives you the opportunity to visit the surrounding area something we highly recommend.  You will find lots of information of places to visit in this section of our website - THE SURROUNDING AREA.

At your arrival you will find counters of the main rental companies, although they usually offer better offers for reservations in advance on the Internet.

This will be 2nd time we use Alicante private transfers, used them last year. Waiting for us at airport, quick reliable transfer. Arrived on time for departure. Easy to book online and good price. Hopefully all good this year.

Do not use COSTA BUS!! I booked through holiday taxis and the transfer was meant to be with this farcical company. The bus did not wait for us. When I phoned the number it put me through to someone in Majorca! I was told I would need to get a taxi and claim the money back from holiday taxi. Still waiting on a reply from my complaint (emailed and posted signed for so I know they have it) a full refund, and my 90 euro taxi fare I had to pay! Avoid at all costs. I will be going to watchdog if they do not reply and issue my refund. I will be sure to use Beni Connect next time.

Beniconnect - we use them all the time as we live here and have never had problems, just remember to let them know of any delays or cancellations of your flights and you will be fine, normally they will know about delays but just to be safe
