Travelling to your holiday apartment in Portugal

The best way to reach your Portugal holiday home from the U.K. is by taking a flight. It usually takes around three hours. Portugal has many airports, and you can fly to the country's three major cities that include Porto, Lisbon and Faro. Renting a car is highly recommended for getting around the countryside and various regions. If you are planning to explore the main cities, taking the public transport is not usually required as the majority of the attractions are within walking distance from the city centres. However, Porto and Lisbon both have subway systems, and taxis are also readily available.

Best times to visit

Portugal experiences a Mediterranean climate with temperatures averaging between 16°C to 25°C. July to August may be the most popular time to visit, but it is also the busiest with prices at their peak. The best time to visit Portugal is spring (from March to May), when seasonal flowers blanket the hills and almond groves awash the countryside, or during autumn (September to October) when the climate is warm but not too humid and the holiday crowds have reduced. Rainfall occurs mostly during winter (November to March), although the showers never last for too long. If you book your holiday home in Portugal during March to May and September to October, you will experience perfect weather for enjoying outdoor activities.

Things to know before visiting Portugal

To visit Portugal, you may require a visa or passport, depending on the country you will be travelling from. Citizens from the European Union don’t need a visa for travelling to Portugal, and Swiss and EU nationals can enter the country using their identity cards. You do not need any vaccinations to enter Portugal unless you are travelling from an infected region. The currency of the country is Euro.
