Re: New car rental charges proposed at Faro airport

Even if it was not a grass snake, ther is nothing to fear Portugal does not have any dangerous snakes.
They are far more frightened of you .
Now spiders centipedes and hornets ,that is a different matter, they can give you nasty bites and stings.

Re: Car Rental loyalties tested

Clear as mud , i have seen reports that suggest that those who use the office in P4 will not be affected only those that used the coffee shop inside the airport.
Which catergory do those who use vans come under,are they there officially or unofficially, who knows?????

Re: Carvoeiro beach to be closed

We will b heading back soon and one of the things we like about the Algarve and Carvoeiro is the quality and availability of good live music.

Re: Car Rental loyalties tested

We have the same problem and have thought of this solution.
Park up at the Forum algarve have a coffee , do some shopping until you get a call that your visitor has clearedpassport control. collected their luggane and get themto wait in the drop off pick up area.
The alternative is wait on the Island.

Re: 4G

I ahve been told that a cable connection, ethernet, hdmi etc is always preferable to wifi as the signal suffers from far less degradation and possible interference.
If you have wired connectivity available why not use it.
