Travelling to Benidorm or any city is an exciting experience but there is always a lot of planning that needs to be done first. Most of the time your journey begins at the airport, and if you are travelling to or from Benidorm you will more than likely fly from Alicante Airport.

The airport in Alicante is the sixth largest airport in Spain and has grown over the years. It is a popular choice for many tourists as it is equipped with several amenities that will make your trip an enjoyable one. Below is everything you need to know about Alicante Airport.


Alicante Airport is situated in the southern area and not in Alicante itself. Once you land it can be a bit confusing to find the bus stop for example, which is located on the lower floor-2 of the airport. Once there you will be able to get a bus onto your next destination fairly easily.

Car Hire

For most people, hiring a car is going to be the easiest and most convenient way to get around and at Alicante Airport, there are plenty of car rental companies to choose from once you arrive inside the main arrivals’ hall. 

Depending on your preference, you can choose from hire companies such as Centauro car hire, Goldcar car rentals, Avis/Budget car, Europcar, Sixt, RecordGo and Firefly. 

If you have never hired a car before it can be a little daunting but there is plenty of help at the airport to guide you in the right direction and provide advice on the different insurance policies, additional drivers or fuel policies that you need.

Airport Transfers

If you want to avoid the hassle of running to catch a bus or working out the right insurance policy for your hire car then getting an airport transfer is probably the best way to get from Alicante Airport to your next destination. 

The airport transfer can be waiting ready to pick you up from the arrivals gate which means you can forget about the stress of getting out of the car park and avoiding the long queues.


If you are planning on driving then Alicante Airport’s car park is built on six levels and is connected to the terminal by convenient, covered walkways, there should be more than enough room with over 4,000 parking spots which can cater for larger vehicles, vans and campers should you park in the long-stay lot.


Another important aspect of travelling is shopping, most airports have a wide range of designer outlets, boutiques, restaurants, and bars for you to relax in or get that last-minute gift or an essential piece of holiday attire. Either way, Alicante Airport has everything you could possibly want to make your journey a memorable one.
