Re: Ron Young - Algarve Travel Association

Someone has again a problem having rented through the same guy. Just arrived in CVO. Seemingly someone else about to arrive will also not be put into rental accomodation either. Very sad indeed. I saw Tripadvisor comments on a question posted from mid 2015 too. Surely this is not coincidence. :evil:...

Re: Car Rental

Best one is travelrent. Been renting since 2002. Found they have the best price, but why don't you ask both? Carhire@travelrent.pt just email and ask. I hired a larger car for my brother 7-16 October, includes €20 for tolls, €15 airport tax globally €150. That should now get you a better price from ...

1.1275
I don't bother with the digits after 2 decimal places. It's what ever the actual rate was at that minute. If only we had a crystal ball.

Re: Uber

Just tried on Uber now (8pm) and we're being quoted €54 - 72 from CVO to Faro with a 14minute wait. I did not book it, but its an indication that Uber are likely to be the same as a private car service, but unpredictable arrival time as you cannot pre-book. Hubby tried from home and also got €70, s...

We arrive 24th, but do have our young grandchildren so not sure what restaurants we will venture to. 2 and 3 year olds are often difficult to please. TBH not Thai.

Re: Wolf

They do a good breakfast on Sunday too. 8) Didn't know that, other than Sunday Brunch. We will be eating at the Wolf soon, but will also try some other restaurants that we have not before. We don't go out that much as we prefer to save the euros for another visit, albeit we are about to a long peri...

Re: Uber

Hubby wants Uber from Airport? Bit nervous. Good reviews on Facebook when people reference taxis in CVO.

Re: Thai Elephant

Seen a snapshot of the menu and it looks expensive and away from CVO so doesn't have the foot fall. Also sounds like many of the Portuguese locals aren't the type to frequent an establishment charging more than a few euros for a main. Wonder how safe your car would be if left because you had a bit o...
