Whilst car hire is not essential in many of the resorts, many choose to for convenience and ease of getting around. Most areas have a selection of shops, restaurants and bars within a 15 minute walk away. Taxis are easy to get and are relatively cheap. Vale de Lobo and Vale de Garrao have shuttle buses to take you around the resort.
There are many English speaking taxis in and around The Golden Triangle so you will never have to wait long. Taxis from Faro generally cost in the region of €20-25. Most trips within The Golden Triangle cost under €10. You can order them through restaurant, bars or resort receptions. Mini-buses are also available to hire through most taxi companies.
