Alicante train station transfer connects to the main tourist town of Altea
Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found on Spain’s Costa Blanca. The name Altea derives from the Moors who conquered the region and named it Althaya, meaning health to all.
The town is just 11 kilometres north of Benidorm. Altea is similar to other Costa Blanca towns in that it has a new and an old neighbourhood. The old section is perched on top of a hill from where you will find really spectacular views.
Once you arrive in Altea on your Alicante train station transfer you will find that Altea town is a holiday haven for the more discerning tourist who will be captivated by its medieval cobbled streets, its picture book old quarter and the delights of its palm-fringed seafront promenade.
The ascent to the old section along steep slopes and stepped streets reveals a broad horizon at every turn and extends along the entire La Marina region. The silhouette of the Peñon de Ifach on one side and the Helade range on the other, frame the view of the sea, with the ever present gulls sweeping low over the town.
For your Alicante train station transfer once you leave the train, proceed to the arrivals hall and immediately on your left you will see a restaurant called CAFESTORE. Our guide / driver will be waiting for you outside this establishment with a Beniconnect sign, where you will be directed to where your uniformed driver and vehicle are waiting to transfer you to your chosen destination in Altea.
I booked on line after reading several recommendations on TripAdvisor. I booked a mini bus transfer for 10 people.The booking was process was quick and easy. I got confirmation immediately with a reminder just before we travelled. The check in desk is right in front of you when come come into arrivals. I confirmed my name and destination, our driver was there. I agreed our pick up time for the return journey. Then our driver took us down 2 escalators and the vehicle was there. Within a couple of minutes we were on our way. The vehicle looked brand new and we had plenty of space. The air conditioning worked perfectly. It took 45 minutes from Alicante to Benidorm and we were dropped right outside our apartments. I received an email to confirm our pick up arrangements and the mini bus arrived bang on time and the return journey was just as smooth. The whole experience couldn't have been better and we paid £18 return per person which we were very pleased with.
Our flight landed over 2hrs late but this wasn't a problem for the beniconnect staff, they put us on the next available bus. Had to wait about 1/2 hr for the passengers for that bus to clear customs and then we where off to Calpe. Excellent service used many times and will use again
We found the Beniconnect ideal way to be taken to your hotel without having to drive. The bus was there waiting for us at the airport and was early for the return journey. Would definitely use again.
I used this service after researching reviews on the internet and have to admit the service was first class. I flew into Alicante late at night and Beniconnect was there as promised. On the website there are numerous options you can choose from. I chose the cheapest for my family and I. The mode of transport was a small 15 seater bus with air con and WiFi. Beniconnect were a lot cheaper than paying for transfers via the flight company or the holiday company I booked with. I booked online and when the confirmation email came, attached was a booking reference number with clear instructions on how to find their desk. On arrival, an helpful lady was waiting at the desk and allocated us our bus. We waited for about 10 minuets, the driver loaded the bags in the back and then we were on our way, taken straight to our hotel, which luckily for us was one of the scheduled drop off points. The return to the airport couldn’t have been simpler. Again, I was on a late flight. I received an email 24 hours before giving me instructions on when the bus was arriving and that I should be at the pick up point 10 minutes before the scheduled time. Beniconnect even sent an email to the hotel who pinned it up on their departure board. On the return, I literally fell out of the hotel and on to the bus. Again, air con and WiFi to keeps the kids occupied. One hour later we arrived at the airport right in front of the departure lounge. If you’re going to Benidorm, I can’t stress enough how professional these guys are in getting to the town.
Pickup is always on time and buses are always clean and comfortable. Drivers are always very patient and courteous. Would highly recommend Benniconnect for transfers to and from Alicante Airport.
