Getting from Lagos to Lisbon

Basic travel information and tips for getting to Lisbon from Lagos by car, bus, train or plane.


The best way to get from Lagos to Lisbon really depends on how much time you have and how much money you want to spend.


Renting a car
Renting a car can cost you as little as €40 euros per day in the Algarve and some rental car companies allow you to pick the car up in one location and drop it off at another. There are 3 basic driving routes to Lisbon. 1) The coastal road N120 - 4.5hrs. 2) Toll roads A22 and A2 - 2.5hrs. 3) National roads N125 and IC1 via Tunes - 3.5hrs. Click here for car hire & rental information.


By bus
There are regular buses departing from Lagos for Lisbon throughout the day. The trip takes approx. 4hrs and costs around €22. You have the choice of 2 bus companies Renex and EVA.


By train
Similar to travelling by bus. The trip takes approx. 4hrs with a change of trains at Tunes with approx. 15mins waiting time. The train on the other hand offers a more scenic route to Lisbon passing through coutryside that is not normally accessible by car or bus etc. The closest train station to Lisbon airport is the Oriente (Gare do Oriente). This station is located in the Lisbon's Parque das Nações district, which is about 15min taxi ride from the main city centre. Other ways of getting there include going by metro and by bus.


By plane
This is by far the most expensive and time consuming of all the options described above. Firstly, the trip from Lagos to Faro via taxi or shuttle transfer - 1hr. Then checkin etc. another 1-2hrs. And the flight itself just under 1hr. So all up, 4hrs and a lot of expenses.
