Airport transfer / driving from Lisbon to Salir do Porto

Hi there,

We're due to fly out on holiday soon and my husband who was going to drive from Lisbon to the villa has now been delayed. I'm not very confident at driving and people keep telling me how aggressive the driving is in Portugal which isn't helping! Is the driving in Portugal as bad as I've been told?

If so, are there any reliable taxi firms that would transfer us? I will have my elderly mum with me and kids.

Any help would be gratefully received.

If you don't feel confident book a transfer. I'm sure you'll find some here at Tripadvisor, compare prices.

It's not aggressive but if you don't feel comfortable, don't drive. The following company often comes recommended on this forum:

Thank you so much. What exactly is the driving in Portugal like?? The M25 fills me with dread - is it similar?!

No, but for starters you drive at the 'wrong' side of the road :) If you're not a confident driver, you should not try it.

Have a look at the link, use street view and you can 'drive' it all the way?
