WHERE DO TRANSFERS DEPART FROM AT ALICANTE AIRPORT?
You will find the check-in desks and departure point for all SHARED TRANSFERS at level -2 just below the arrivals hall, accessed by lift or escalator. See Transfer Departure Point.
CAN I BOOK LAST MINUTE TRANSFERS? YES UP TO 30 HOURS BEFORE FLIGHT ARRIVALS
Other transfer providers require a minimum of 48/72 hours notice to make an online booking. This is due to the logistics required to arrange passenger pick-ups and ensure drivers and vehicles are where they need to be. We recommend that you book well in advance before whenever possible.
I AM ARRIVING TODAY - WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS TO GET TO BENIDORM? EXPRESS (ALSA) BUS!
If you are arriving or departing today there are up to 18 daily nonstop ALSA buses between Alicante airport and the center of Benidom (Avenida Europa Levante). You can BUY AN AIRPORT BUS TICKET even for travel today, or pay cash to the driver! We recommed pre-booking a seat online for this busy route.
BABY SEATS / INFANT SEATS / BOOSTER SEATS / CHILD RESTRAINTS:
Due to the large number of diferent systems, suppliers do not carry all types for all children/babies/infants. We recommend you bring your own baby or booster seats or child restraint system for children, babies or infants. You will be expected to fit these to the seat yourself. Some suppliers offer baby/child seats as an extra when booking (not booster seats). Certain types of transfers such as large coaches and larger minibuses cannot fit baby/infant/booster seats. This may be of help if you need to purchase a child seat or restraining system https://www.childcarseats.org.uk/types-of-seat/
CHILDREN IN VEHICLES: THE LAW IN SPAIN (vehicles up to 9 seats)
Infants and children travelling in a vehicle that has a maximum passenger capacity of up to 9 seats (8 passengers + driver), MUST, by law, travel in an infant/baby/child seat/restraining system, in a rear seat. Any failure on behalf of the passengers to comply with this law will mean the driver MUST refuse travel. It is up to the passengers NOT the driver of a taxi or transfer vehicle to provide appropriate safety seats for children on both urban and non-urban journeys. www.boe.es/diario_boe/txt.php?id=BOE-A-2015-8047
HOW DO I MEET THE DRIVER OR FIND MY COACH?
If you have booked a private taxi or private mini-bus the driver will be waiting in the arrivals hall, with a sign with your name or the name of the company providing your transfer. Details of this will be on your confirmation voucher. Some companies may request you to go to the shuttle transfer desks below arrivals. Please check meeting instructions carefully once received as these may differ with each supplier.

Yes, this service is available as an extra, and bookable online with private transfer services with Beniconnect each extra stop costs just 10€ and you can book up to 4 stops to collect keys and/or drop off friends to different apartments or hotels (in the same resort). Due to logistics extra stops must be added at the same time of booking and cannot be requested on arrival.
HOW LONG DOES A SHARED TRANSFER TAKE?
You may have to wait at the airport or when you are picked up as shared shuttles run to a regular schedule. You may also have to wait for other passengers on the same and other flights to collect their luggage and make their way to the transfer departure area. This is usually about 30 minutes, but may be up to one hour depending on delays of incoming aircraft and baggage collection.
Once you depart the airport the average journey time to Benidorm is 55 minutes, Albir 65 minutes and Altea 75 minutes. Depending on the type of shuttle (economy or express) and time of day there may also be several drop-off points in resort before reaching your hotel. Average time from boarding to arriving at your hotel is 90 minutes. We recommend the EXPRESS SHUTTLE.
HOW DO I CONFRM MY RETURN PICK_UP TIME BACK TO THE AIRPORT?

There are also always 24/7 English speaking customer service numbers. Pick-up locations for shared transfers are usually from pre-defined location near you hotel, you may need to walk a short distance.
