When making a transfer reservation with our reservations department, we will provide the driver with all of the information regarding your arrival: name, flight number, and origin and estimate time of arrival. Upon disembarking, you will have a driver waiting for you in the arrivals section immediately after the baggage claim area, indicating your name on a board. If your flight is delayed, there is no need to worry since the driver will wait for you.
This is a personalized and attentive service to the customer with a cost of 28€ for 4 people and 35€ for 4 to 6 people, with luggage always included. The service will be paid for directly to the driver at the end of the transportation.
Regarding your arrival, starting at three people it is advisable to use a taxi, since the price and ease of access compensates the trip. If there are only two people with only a hand luggage, the use of other means of transportation such as the bus or metro will be the most economically advantageous.
To use the transportation network in Lisbon, it is advisable to buy the Viva Viagem card (0,50€) at any Carris selling location or in any automatic machine in the metro stations. Economically, the Viva Viagem card ends up being much more advantageous than purchasing the tickets at the entrance of the transportations used.
The Viva Viagem has three charging options:
- 24 hours ticket – valid for the Carris (buses, trams and elevators) and Metro;
- Zapping – the customer chooses the amount to be debited from their card and that amount will be discounted as the guest validates their transportation title. This value is transferred to the Carris (buses, trams and elevators), Metro, CP – Comboios de Portugal (trains) and Soflusa/Transtejo (boats and ferries);
- Carris/Metro ticket – valid for one trip across the Carris (buses, trmas and elevators) and Metro network for up to one hour after the first validation.

Unfortunately, sometimes the taxi drivers are not the best image of the alfacinha hospitality, in this case, if your taxi driver complains or refuses to follow the route, refuse to pay and if necessary, threaten to call the police or call us directly. Any excused to deny passenger transportation is not valid. At the end of the route, always ask for a receipt and verify if the registration on the receipt is the same as the one in the taxi being used.
