Lisbon to either Seville or Cordoba

We are planning to go to Analucia in October. Flying into Lisbon is the least expensive; however, renting a car in Lisbon is much more expensive than renting it in Seville or Cordoba. I cannot seem to find a train that runs between Lisbon and Cordoba or Seville.

You will not find any trains because there are none.

You can fly from Lisbon to Seville with TAP airlines or go by bus with ALSA, which takes 6 hours. www.alsa.es for times and reservations.

There is also a bus operated by EVA bus but that requires a transfer in Faro

www.eva-bus.com for details.

Renting a Portuguese car to drop off in Spain will incur very large additional charges as the rental company has to send someone to repatriate it. It's as if every province of Canada was a separate country.

You might consider flying to Madrid and then taking a train to Seville. That might be more cost effective in the long run.

We would return the car to Lisbon. We are planning to go no further north than Seville in Spain. Looking at a map, we thought the drive between Lisbon and Seville/Cordoba would be short.

Renting a car in Lisbon needs not to be much more expensive than in Sevilla. Try a reliable internet rent a car site such as carhire3000.com and you'll get the best possible quote. Driving from Lisbon to Sevilla non stop should take you little more than 4 hours via Beja.

For some reason Auto Europe, whose prices are excellent, wanted double the money if we picked the car up in Lisbon. I will try carhire 3000.

Thanks.
