Segovia Spain to Porto Portugal

Thinking of making the drive from Segovia Spain to Porto Portugal. Google maps indicates it's about a 5 hr drive - does that sound about right? How is the drive as far as roads etc. Any info about this would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks.

Hmmmm...it seems when I did a Google map it showed two routes, both about 5 hrs. Any suggestion on the more scenic route? (below is the google maps I got, not sure if you can access it or not)

And you'll be driving a car with Spanish licence plate, correct? If you use A-50, A-62 and E-80 you'll be using an electronic tolls only highway in Portugal (E-80/A-25), you'll need to look at the info about "Electronic tolls" visitportugal.com/en/sobre-portugal/info-util

Hello again 64novpt - we were probably going to get our vehicle at the beginning of our trip (Sep 21 or so) which starts in Lisbon. Is there any issue driving from Portugal to Spain with Portugal licence plate? We just booked our airflights last nite so next steps are booking our accommodations and then vehicle last. Thanks for any info you have, much appreciated!

The rental company needs to know you're heading for Spain. Most of them (but not all) won't have a problem with that but you'll pay extra for insurance.

If you're renting a Portuguese licence plate car ask to the rental company for a transponder for the electronic tolls only highways (you'll have to pay a fee).
