Our driver was exactly what we hoped and a little more: punctual, responsible trough out the entire duration of our trip, understanding and efficient, overall very proficient. Also, thanks to the support team who was very efficient with helping us locate our driver at the arrival ( it was our first time in Bulgaria and we were a little lost in translation). Thank you!

The taxi driver was very open to conversation, entertaining as well as instructive and took care into making the travel as pleasant as possible while driving through the outskirts of Hamburg.

How to Get from Madeira Airport to Other Destinations

Cristiano Ronaldo Airport, more well-known as Madeira Airport, is located 13 km from the capital of the island – Funchal. It is the fourth largest Portuguese air hub. The airport welcomes flights from all over Europe, as Madeira is one of the popular resorts among Europeans. Tourists often search for ways to get to neighboring towns or resorts. Ones take a taxi or transfer, while others prefer public transportation.

Taxi from Madeira Airport

A taxi rank is located outside the terminal. Drivers will agree to drive you whenever you want. We advise you to take an official taxi – the yellow car with blue stripes. Avoid unlicensed cars. The price of a taxi to Funchal is around 35 euros. Night tariffs are higher. Check if the taximeter is turned on while getting into the taxi.

Transfer from Madeira Airport

A transfer is the best option for those who like planning everything in advance. The Kiwitaxi company provides cars to resorts and cities.

A fare of a trip to Funchal in an economy-class car for 3 persons is 26 euros, to Machico – 15 euros, and to Ribeira Brava – 48 euros. If you prefer more comfort, you might be interested in ordering a premium-class car or minivan. Prices can be found on the website. We can also organize a return transfer to Madeira Airport.

If you are traveling with a child, we ask you to notify us about that, and a transfer will be provided with a child seat. In case you did not find any transfer to your destination, do not hesitate to contact our consultants, who are always ready to help.

Public transport from Madeira Airport

An Aerobus to Funchal departs about once an hour. A trip lasts for 30 minutes, and there is enough space for luggage. A ticket, which can be purchased right on the bus, will cost you 5 euros. Check the timetables in advance. The last Aerobus departs at 8 pm, therefore, if you arrive late, you will need to take a taxi or transfer service. From Funchal, you can easily get to other towns.

Interesting Information

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most famous footballers of the modern era and, without any doubt, the most famous son of Madeira. He was born in Funchal, and here his own museum is situated. A great collection of trophies, shirts, photographs, and paintings is shown in Museu CR7.
