- Portugal has a number of toll highways. You can pay with a credit card or cash, but highways accept the VIA Verde automatic payment system, which uses a magnetic card connected to the windscreen. So be sure your rented car has a toll tag. There is also an Easy Toll system, which is more convenient for visiting automobiles. At the border, you submit your card information and a photo of your license plates is taken. When the registered car goes through a toll booth, the system deducts the toll payment automatically.
Our Tip to make the best of your time:
- Keep an eye out for potholes and approaching cars. Some roads are also inadequately illuminated, making driving at night very dangerous.
Because street signs may be missing, bring a map or GPS to avoid getting lost.
- On the road, keep an eye out for pedestrians. Many streets lack sidewalks, and it’s not uncommon to see individuals walking down the street in groups of four. As a result, take it carefully and slowly.
