TRANSPORTATION FROM/TO AIRPORT

Private shuttle

For transportation from the Lisbon airport to your hotels or CCB we recommend you to hire a private shuttle beforehand in order not to wait at airport. Costs: Car (1-3 people): 25€ / Van (4-8 people): 35€ . Payment in cash at the end of the transfer. At Lisbon Airport the driver will wait in front of the arrival door with a sign with the name of the customer. The ride to CCB and to the main hotels takes approx. 20 minutes, depending on traffic.

Taxis

Lisbon Airport is located relatively close to the centre and taxi fares in Lisbon are cheaper than in most European cities. Expect to pay around 15 - 20€ for a taxi ride to the city center from the airport, depending on traffic.  At Lisbon Airport you find a designated area to queue for taxis just outside the arrival terminal. Normally there is no need to call a taxi as the taxi stand is always busy, but be prepared to wait in line.
