It is a personalized and attentive service to the customer with a cost of 28€ in the airport-guesthouse route, and/or 25€ in the guesthouse-airport route, with luggage always included and with a maximum occupancy of four passengers. For an occupancy of five or six passengers, the fare is 35€. The service must be paid directly to the driver at the end of the transport.
Regarding your arrival, if your party consists of at least three people, it is advisable to use our transfer service or to grab a taxi since the level of cost and the ease of access makes up for the trip. If it is only two people, with hand luggage, the use of other means of transportation, like the train or the metro, will be the most economically advantageous.
To use the transportation network in the metropolitan area of Porto, it is advisable to purchase the Andante card (0,50€) in the vending machines located in the metro station, on the train box office, in the city’s tourism center or in the Andante stores. It is a rechargeable card and valid for buses, metro, funicular railway and trains that allow you to pay the same rate regardless of the means of transportation or the numbers of boardings done. As you use the Andante, the rate calculation is based only on the route made.
The Andante card offers two options for recharging:

- Travel Ticket – allows you to travel during a minimum period of an hour depending on the number of purchased zones. The more zones purchased the higher the period permitted to travel. It is very important to choose the correct and corresponding zone to your destination.

The correct address to the Cardosas parking lot is Rua Trindade Coelho, however, since it is a one-way street, and with the objective of avoiding mistakes in the GPS, we advise you to insert in your GPS the Rua dos Clérigos address.
This way, as you are going down the Rua dos Clérigos and at the end of this same street, you can turn right and enter Rua Trindade Coelho immediately after the traffic light. At the traffic light, you will find an indication to the Cardosas parking lot.
After you turn in the Rua Trindade Coelho, go a few meters ahead and you will see a large “P” on the left side of the street where you can enter the parking lot.
To exit the parking lot, follow the directions “Largo dos Lóios” and you will find an elevator to take you to the surface. As you exit the elevator, turn right and, as you reach the main street, turn left and go down until you find the crosswalk with the Rua das Flores. Turn right and keep walking until you find number 245 on your right side, reaching your destination.
