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.

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.
