We have been informed by the Portuguese airport authority ANA (which is currently owned and operated by the private French consortium VINCI) that there will be an Airport Tax for all operating rent-a cars which will be applied to all clients that collect and return their vehicles to the airport car park. This charge will be effective from 1st March 2015.
The Airport Tax charged to the clients will be 15 EUR and includes Portuguese VAT . This Tax will allow the client to collect and return the car to Car Park RAC (former Car Park4).
The car park RAC cannot be used as a normal public car park so if you are going to the Airport to pick someone, you must use the other public car park, or you will be charged the tariff of 4.5 euros for the first 30 minutes and after, 1 euro for each 15 minutes ( July, August and September is double price).
This will applied to every car hire supplier at Faro Airport using Car Park RAC (former Car Park 4) and not just to those who operate with Luzcar.
We and the local car hire companies are currently taking legal action against the airport to avoid this fee in the future, but for the mean time we must charge this to all customers.
For clients that arrive after 20:00 please contact us for new instructions.
We can only apologise for the short notice given.
