If you’re arriving into Faro before you can check into your accommodation, the last thing you want to do is wander around the city with suitcases and backpacks. While Faro isn’t hilly, the weather can be quite warm—especially in the height of summer. Not much fun when you’re lugging around your luggage.

Thankfully, there are a few places where you can drop your bags for a few hours, days, and even weeks. Many of these are available through apps like Bounce and Luggage Hero, which allow you to store your bags at certain shops and cafés.

Faro Airport

At Faro Airport, travellers have access to secure storage lockers for their luggage, located outside the terminal near Car Park P5. The cost for using these lockers is dependent on the size of the luggage and is charged per 4-hour period:

  • For small bags: €1.50 per 4 hours
  • For medium and large bags: €2.50 per 4 hours

More information can be found on Faro Airport’s website

A luggage storage facility is available at Forum Algarve Shopping Centre, which is just seven minutes’ drive from Faro Airport (there are taxis at the shopping centre). The shopping centre also has a food court and cinema, if you’re looking for somewhere to unwind.
