Lisbon Airport Car Rental – Some Useful Driving Tips

  • One of the unavoidable situations that every traveler driving from Lisbon Airport has to face is the roundabouts, which are deemed the busiest in Portugal. Hence, it is advised that you should get yourself familiarized with your car rental before heading out of the airport, and if possible do plan a route in advance. And, drive slowly.
  • Though travelers should avoid taking their cars into Lisbon’s historic center but in case you are going to do just that, make it a point that you drive as slowly as you can. Also, note that in the historic district, signposting is nearly nonexistent, 'drivers cutting without indicating’ is a common occurrence, and most of the roads are one-way!
  • Last but not the least, trams!! They are an integral part of Lisbon; they are given priority when it comes to giving 'way’. In case a tram stops in front of you, you should never overtake it as it is illegal and can lead to on the spot fine. Similarly, at some places, where there are no trams, if you see horse-drawn vehicles, note that they are to be given priority.
