Transfer company City Airport Taxis

Has anyone used the company City Airport Taxis? They advertise a private transfer from Lisbon airport to Cascais. I know it would be cheaper to take bus/train, but after flying for 18 hours the private transfer is appealing.

Thanks

Hi maciegirl,

We have not as yet been to Lisbon. We are going in June.

We have booked the following through Pedro at Lisbon taxis.

info@lisbontaxis.com.pt

Pickup at airport and transfer to our hotel in central Lisbon. €17

Transfer from Lisbon hotel to Estoril hotel 1week later. €32

Transfer from Estoril hotel to airport 1 week later. €37

We have been told we will be met by a driver with a name board in arrivals.

Yes this is more than a taxi but we are in our 60s and don't want the fuss of finding a taxi.

Pedro comes very highly recommended on TA.

All our correspondence with him has been simple, to the point and almost instantaneous!

I hope that this helps.

Peter & Jean. :o)

We have also booked with Lisbon taxis for our upcoming visit in late June. We normally have no issues using public transit, but after reading the negative comments on TA regarding taxis at the airport, we just did not want the hassle after a long, transatlantic flight. And really, the price is not that much more. Especially for the peace of mind.

Pedro at Lisbon taxis has been wonderful to deal with. He's a regular poster on TA, so must know his reputation would be severely tarnished if there were any issues. And we don't anticipate any based on the reviews he gets on TA.

Thank you; two suggestions for the same driver sounds like a good plan!

Enjoy your trip, we will be there the last part of June as well. Thanks!

Hi, we used Pedro last year and had no problems. Driver with our name on a card in arrivals, we was at our hotel in Rossio square within 20minutes. Have already been in contact with Pedro and will be using them again this july.
