Transportation from Lisbon airport to Cascais

Hi

I've just booked a seven day holiday in Cascais for the end of September. I havebooked flights and hotel just no transfers between.

What is the most reliable and cost effective way of getting form the airport to hotel. I have seen shuttles that would be £62 for the two of us in total. Does anyone have any idea of the cost of a taxi? Or are the trains convenient?

Any advuce would be gratefully received!

Thanks

Taxi won't be a lot different. You can take the metro from the airport to Cais do Sodre station in Lisbon (one change of line needed) then a suburban train to Cascais for the grand total of €4.05 each. Overall it will take about 80 minutes. Metro every 6 minutes, trains every 20 minutes for most of the day. Keep the metro ticket as you can re-charge it for the ticket to Cascais and use it again for the way back. Metro time 30 minutes, train time 40 minutes.

There's also the Aerobus from the airport direct to Cais do Sodre, costs €3.15 cash then train as above. Bus time about 35 minutes.

with the metro to buy the ticket is somtimes difficult with the machine it is better to go to the selloffice.

normally you by a card for 50 cent that you recharge with 1 of several trips.

with the aerobus is direct to cais do sodre and will cost about 14 euros for 2 persons

Aerobus fare was reduced to €3,15 per person. Aerobus ticket is also valid for use on Carris city buses for the same day,

Would definite recommend getting the bus and then the train. Cheap, quick, comfortable. And probably as quick as a €60-€70 taxi. Based on personal experience!

Taxi will cost you around 40-45 Euros Euros. Just avoid taxis with capacity for more than 4 passengers (30 % more expensive), unless you need it! An executive car will cost around 55-60 Euros

We did this journey a few weeks ago. Unless youre pushed for time or have silly flight times you may as well get the metro and train. If i were you i eould do publuc transport when you arrive in lisbon and book a private car for the return journey. Lisbon is a fantastic city and well worth a couple of days sightseeing, loads to do.
