You can land in Lisbon ready to relax when there’s a pre-booked airport transfer waiting outside the terminal for you.

Whether you’re travelling as a family and want to keep things as easy as possible, or would like to start your holiday in style, airport transfers are by far the most convenient option. They will drop you outside your accommodation and you won’t have to get your head around public transport timetables and ticket types as soon as you arrive.

Lisbon Airport (LIS) is around a 20-minute drive from Lisbon, traffic dependent, and a transfer will make this short journey a breeze. You may be tempted to keep your costs down by hopping on a public bus, but be aware that the maximum size of bag you can take on buses here is 50x40x20cm, and you won’t be dropped outside your hotel. So weigh up whether the ease and convenience of a transfer is worth the extra expense.

Shuttles and coaches can still be very cost-effective airport transfer options if you’re keeping an eye on your budget. You’ll share these with other passengers but will still be dropped at your door if you’re staying in a hotel.

If you usually jump in a taxi when you arrive in a destination, consider booking a private transfer instead. Just like a taxi, it will be your own private vehicle, but you’re likely to be greeted in arrivals by your driver and can sidestep any hassle that comes with taxis – such as queues, haggling and unexpected charges. Your price will be fixed and you can budget for it before you leave home.

If you’re travelling in a group, consider a minibus so you all travel conveniently together. The more people you travel with, the cheaper the price per head is likely to be.

You can see all of your options in one place by using a comparison service such as TravelSupermarket’s. You may be surprised by how cheap some of the options are, especially when there are special discounts.

You could then save your first taste of public transport in Lisbon for one of the city’s iconic yellow trams.
