Transfer Information and Options
Whether you want a transfer with a luxury private car or in a luxury minivan, you can book your transfers to and from Juicy Oasis in advance with the comfort of knowing it’s all been taken care of. Juicy Oasis is set in a remote part of Portugal and the transfer takes between 1.45 – 2 hrs.
We use an incredibly respected and trusted 3rd party transfer company to assist in your travel to and from Juicy Oasis. Over the years we have worked with several different companies striving to find one that provides the level of quality, comfort and reliability that we want our guests to experience. ‘VIP Transfer Portugal’ provides a 1st class transfer experience that is genuinely better than any other we have found. We appreciate the transfer is not cheap, however this is what you can expect:
- There is an English speaking rep at Lisbon Airport to meet you upon arrival 24/7
- The vehicles are less than 1 year old, with the cars being luxury Mercedes and the minivan Renault Grand Scenic (or similar)
- All the vehicles have water, Wi-Fi, Sanitiser and masks if you should need one
- All the drivers are fully vaccinated for Covid and are tested for Covid every 15 days
- ‘VIP Transfer Portugal’ work for the Portuguese government, chauffeuring for the Ministry of Defence and so the vehicles and the drivers follow, and abide by all of the safety, legal and professional protocols
- The journey from Lisbon Airport to Juicy Oasis is 160 km, which is the equivalent to a journey from London to Bristol
- The transfer uses toll roads for a quicker and more comfortable journey; the tolls alone are €50 per vehicle, per journey
- All the drivers are professional, they are punctual, they will not speed; smoke; play music (unless you request this) or use the telephone without bluetooth. This is not unfortunately always guaranteed with other transfers and taxis in Portugal!
- If you have any issues with lost luggage the representative at the airport will assist with resolving this issue.
You can of course arrange your own transfers with either a taxi or an Uber or hire your own car. However please be mindful that these options are not always straightforward and we have had a few negative experiences:
Uber transfers from Juicy Oasis to the airport can take far longer than quoted to arrive at Juicy Oasis, as there are no Uber drivers near Juicy Oasis, so they have to travel from further away to arrive with us.
Often guests cannot book an Uber from Juicy Oasis to Lisbon as when it comes to book, it says ‘vehicle not available’ as there are no Uber drivers located near the retreat.
We had an experience with a guest whose Uber vehicle was electric and the driver had to stop twice on their journey to charge the car, which resulted in a 3 hour journey from Lisbon airport to Juicy Oasis!
We have had more than one instance where a guest booked a hire car and on arrival at the airport was told the cars were all rented and they couldn’t supply a car.
The options available that we offer are:
Private Any-time transfers

The group transfers only operate on Saturdays, The group transfer cost is £75 each way (£150 return) per person and can accommodate a maximum of 8 people, however this maximum has been reduced to 5 during the Covid Crisis.
Arrival Group Transfer:
Below are our set transfer times that we have devised to accommodate the vast majority of flights into Lisbon airport. Please remember from the time your flight lands, you need to allow atleast 45 minutes to disembark; collect any luggage; get from the plane to the arrival hall; get through passport control and maybe use the toilet or buy a drink.
Transfers will leave at these set times, so unfortunately if you miss the group transfer you will have to contact the retreat and either book a private ‘anytime transfer’ and pay the additional transfer cost, or if we have availability, we will book you onto the next group transfer and there will be no additional cost for this.
