Charles:

Be sure to visit Seville on your way back from Lisbon. Do a day trip to Estoril from Lisbon.

Most of the highways in Portugal use electronic tolls.

I5 days is too much driving and not enough sight seeing.

Ensure you can take your hire car across borders as some now charge extra for the privilege; to cover breakdown recovery costs.
