- there is a taxi rank at the exit of the terminal;
- use of the Bolt application (there is no Uber in Madeira), although there are not always vehicles available in the Airport area; and

- Pre-book a transfer with, for example, Madeira Tours & Transfers

 

Accommodation

The Confraria Enogastronomica da Madeira did not enter into any agreement regarding accommodation due to difficulty in obtaining more advantageous conditions than those found on websites such as Booking.com or Trivago.com, which are available to everyone.
We suggest choosing accommodation in the center of Funchal as the program includes two days with an afternoon meeting and dinner in Funchal and on the remaining two days the buses will leave and also return to the center of Funchal.

If, however, you prefer to make a reservation through a Travel Agency, we suggest contacting
     Blandy Travel Agency
     Ana Maria Vieira

     Tel: +351 291 200 604 / a.vieira@blandytravel.com

The Agency suggests and will have some rooms blocked at the Hotels Turim Santa Maria (180.00€/superior double room with breakfast/night) and Barceló Funchal Old Town (220.00€/superior double room with breakfast/night) and will offer other options, upon request. Places are limited and prices are valid until March 15th.

 

Note : The occupancy rate of hotels in Funchal is very high and as a result prices are considerably higher than usual. It may be advisable to opt for accommodation on the outskirts of Funchal where prices are lower. There is a good public transport network in Funchal.
