Getting from Alicante Airport to your Villa

Most people seem to hire a car for collection at the airport, and that makes sense if you need transport during your stay. On the other hand, lots of people have holiday homes on the Costa Blanca North, and may well have a vehicle awaiting them at that holiday home. For those people, car hire is not a sensible option.

Then, for people like me, who hate the hassle of the car hire desk queue and the drive on unfamiliar roads in an unfamiliar car, having been awake since the crack of dawn – the following option may appeal.

There is an organisation called Beni Connect, It’s a Benidorm based and family run operation, and is fully licenced and insured. It provides a shuttle service from the airport with drop offs at Calpe, Benissa, Moraira, Benitachell and Javea. The prices are 18 euros, 22, 22, 22 and 25 euros respectively.

If there’s a large family to get to Costa Blanca North, then this published service may not be cost effective. In their fleet, though, they have vehicles with 14 to 54 seats, so there’s nothing to lose by getting a price from them. However, for individual travelers and couples, the normal service is surely worth consideration, especially when you take into account the toll charges on the motorway and fuel costs when driving.

How safe is your money when you’ve pre-booked and pre-paid? Well, the organisation is part of the well respected Autocares Grupo Benidorm. It’s been operating since 2005, and in that year, with just 3 vehicles and 4 employees, moved almost 48000 people from the airport to drop off points on Costa Blanca North. Then, by the end of 2009, nearly 182000 passengers were safely collected and delivered. Look at some of the passenger reviews on their website, and you’ll realise they’ve grown because their customers have rated their value for money service very highly.

Today the team is 25 strong, operating 15 vehicles. These are not the blueprints for a cowboy outfit!

You can reach them by telephone on 0034 965 850 790 (9am to 7pm)
