Advice for Surfers about public transport and taxis in Portugal

Bus:

  • There is free wifi on almost every bus
  • It rarely happens, but busses can be fully booked in summer time. To be sure you can book your trip online
  • This is often even cheaper
  • Lisbon airport ground staff is pretty slow. It is pretty much impossible to leave the airport (with your luggage) within one hour’s time after landing
  • Surf board transport on busses is not for free if you run into a dirver that has a bad day! At Rede Expressos they can charge you the price of a Rodomail parcel. At the Rodomail counter inside the bus terminal they weight your bag. A double board bag can be as much as 30€!
  • On overland busses (coaches) from or two spain, have your surfboard transport confirmed before you go!

 

Taxi:

  • In rush hour a taxi from the airport can take half an hour to the bus terminal
  • The trip from Baleal to Peniche can take well over one hour on August Sunday afternoons!
  • Ask for the fair before you get on the taxi
  • They are allowed to charge around €1 per piece of luggage
  • Taxi drivers often don’t take surf board bags or will charge you €20 or more

Getting to Portgual by bus and train from abroad

Even from Central Europe you can get to Portugal without leaving a carbon footprint by flying. Euro Lines is the biggest Inter-European bus company. But don´t get up your hopes – Those long distance busses are not cheaper than a flight. And those 36 hours on the bus from Germany are virtually a pain in the ass.

From Spain or France it’s a completely different story. From Barcelona hopping on a plane is a lot more comfortable, but from Madrid and southern Spain, Sevilla, Cádiz, and  Tarifa, the busses only take a couple of hours and should be cheaper than even the cheapest budget flight. ALSA and Euro Lines are the bus companies you are looking for. They also have busses at night time that can save you a night in a hotel. And they will get you to the ferry to Morocco if you want to follow the endless summer after a Portuguese Autumn.

From southern France you just need to catch a bus to Iron. The trains to Lisbon go at night and will only set you back around €60. Tickets are available on the Portuguese railway company’s website cp.pt.

All international busses and trains should be booked online.
