Car hire in Cascais

Staying in Cascais in September for 10 days, would you TA people recommend car hire, or rely on public transport to get around, into Lisbon etc..? Thanks

To go to Lisboa take the train, easy, cheap and frequent. To go around to Sintra, Guincho, Cabo da Roca, etc take the bus with Scotturb.

We have just returned from Cascais having spent 2 weeks there and had a great time. We hired a car for just 3 days. The train to Lisboa is 4.80 euros return but remember to change trains if you want to go to the sights at Belem as the Cascais train doesn't stop there. It was a 40 minute walk back to Belem from the next stop! Apart from the towns already mentioned the bus also goes to Estoril but they are mainly a local service. If you want to go further you will need a car

It does at weekends, on weekdays for most of the day it's necessary to change trains en route at Oeiras - check the timetable!
