To book, head to Ryanair’s website. Then, all you need to do is set your departure airport and Faro (FAO) as your destination and use the built-in price comparison to find the lowest fares and dates that suit you best. All of the Algarve is an easy drive from Faro Airport, which has plenty of direct flights from the United Kingdom.

Keep in mind that Ryanair is a low-cost carrier, meaning that benefits you might be used to receiving with other airlines, such as checked luggage or carry-on luggage, may cost you extra.
