One of the many taxi drivers in Évora will do that.

That's quite a distance, and you'll probably have to pay for both ways.

You might consider getting a bus to Elvas, which is, more or less, on the border near Badajoz.

https://www.rede-expressos.pt/

http://www.rodalentejo.pt (who also run a bus from Elvas to Badajoz)

If the timing is OK, that'll be a (lot lot lot) lot cheaper, and, quite possibly, just as quick.

Bear in mind that there is now a daily train from Elvas to Badajoz as follows:

Dept: 12h52 (Portuguese Time)

Arr: 14h16 (Spanish Time)

Bear in mind that the Rodotejo buses only seem to operate on weekdays.

Timteable here:

"Bear in mind that there is now a daily train from Elvas to Badajoz as follows:"

Nice find.

Interestingly, I could find NO trains back from Badajoz to Elvas. I wonder if the train company realises that, if they don't run their trains back again, they will eventually run out of rolling stock...?

There is even a connection of sorts all the way to Madrid.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Could I get a taxi from Elvas to Badajoz? Approximately how much? The earliest bus on Sunday doesn't arrive in Elvas until 15:00 so we couldn't catch the train.

Based on the distance of about 22 km and a charge of around €1.20 per km on a Sunday, I would say at least €25 double that if the driver wanted paying for the empty return trip.

I am thinking about catching the night bus from Evora to Caceres to save all the mucking around but I am a bit worried where they drop us off in Caceres as it will be 3am? What do others think is the best option?
